Conference Realignment: TCU To Be Big 12's Only Addition For Now, According To Report

According to multiple reports from both the Big East side and the Texas side, the TCU Horned Frogs will forego Big East membership and instead join the Big 12. So what about the Big 12's other piece of big news? Could they announce both TCU and another team will join?

Don't expect it yet, says the Austin-American Statesman's Kirk Bohls, who reported the TCU move at the same time as CBS Sports' Brett McMurphy. Bohls says the TCU deal isn't dependent on the Missouri Tigers one way or the other -- we're talking about a conference that's lost three schools already, so adding one doesn't change a whole lot as far as future plans go.

The more likely other announcement will be the formal, official introduction of a six-year media deal that will also rule out the Longhorn Network showing high school games, as has been reported.

The list of rumored future Big 12 targets is the same as it has been: Boise State, BYU and various western-ish Big East teams. And probably not SMU.
