TCU accepted an invitation in late November to join the Big East conference in all sports effective July of 2012. The move to the Big East is excellent news for the Horned Frogs football program - but it may have come at a steep cost.â†µ
The Onion reported today that TCU could only join the Big East if they "bring some of those hot Texas girls along." The Onion's report also states that the Big East has suffered in this department for the better part of the last half of the decade when Boston College, Miami and Virginia Tech left the conference.â†µ
Marinatto told the assembled reporters at a press conference. "Boston College had those cute little Catholic girls, but they left when the Eagles went to the ACC, and we could really use some nice Texas-cowgirl trim. Frankly, West Virginia doesn't give it up as much as you'd think, even though they'll do just about anything once you get them liquored up."â†µ
The report also states that TCU athletic director gave into the conference's stipulation.â†µ
TCU athletic director Chris Del Conte said he was happy to hook the Big East up, explaining that the conference's automatic BCS bowl bid was more than compensation for Syracuse girls being "totally flat."â†µ
We'll see how this clause of the contract affects TCU's campus and the eastern seaboard.
