TCU, looking for a home to get an automatic berth to BCS games, was eager to join the Big East; namely because the Big 10/12 and SEC didn't want them. It seemed a match made in heaven.
It should be noted that TCU will officially begin conference play in 2012. However, the result was what would be expected: TCU, after not losing any regular season games in the past two seasons, immediately goes out and gets ass-pounded by a crappy Baylor team. More disturbing, after finishing the past two seasons with the overall #1 ranked defense in the NCAA, gave up 50 points and 564 yards to Baylor. That's right, the same Baylor team who hasn't won a bowl game since 1994. In fact, has been in exactly one bowl game since 1994.
Is this a coincidence? Or is this the curse of the Big East? You decide.
