Central Florida, East Carolina May Be Invited To Join Big East, According To Report

The Big East is in a very serious state of flux right now; as teams continue to bolt to safer conferences they seem like they want to find some teams to replace them. According to Bill Koch of Cincinnati.com, the Big East may be looking to invite Central Florida and East Carolina to help replace some of the recently departed schools.

In light of TCU’s apparent move to the Big 12 Conference, Big East officials are moving quickly to try to shore up its remaining six football schools with indications that the league will invite East Carolina and Central Florida to join the league, perhaps as early as Friday.

It's pretty incredible that the Big East, just two months ago one of the better Conferences in the Nation, has only six football teams left. East Carolina and Central Florida are up and coming football programs, but they are hardly suitable replacements for a school like TCU. If this is the direction the Big East is in fact going, it could mean that even more of the bigger schools are soon to depart.
