Big East Shopping for 2 New Members: The Big East Conference announced last week that it's looking to add two members, leading to speculation that the No. 3-ranked Texas Christian University and No. 25 Central Florida are its leading targets. Other possibilities are Eastern Carolina and Villanova, which plays in the lower Football Championship Subdivision and is a Big East member in other sports. Geographically, TCU is a poor fit. "It would be weird if we were in the Big East," team quarterback Andy Dalton said.
