Big 12 Expansion: TCU Rising As Potential Texas A&M Replacement, According To Report

You do not believe the Big 12; the Big 12 needs more people. The TCU Horned Frogs have been mentioned as one of the more likely Big 12 expansion candidates, but the Texas Longhorns are reportedly going to need to be convinced to let them in.

So that makes this interesting: Chip Brown of -- Rivals' Texas site in case you've forgotten -- reports TCU is emerging as a potential Big 12 team No. 10. Brown is sometimes referred to as DeLoss Dodds' unofficial spokesperson, so ... interesting. Other schools mentioned in the report: the West Virginia Mountaineers, Cincinnati Bearcats, Louisville Cardinals and BYU Cougars.

It had been reported that Oklahoma favors TCU, BYU and the Air Force Falcons, but Air Force is reportedly headed to the Big East soon, according to Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino.
