OK, so according to Saturday Spirit on Twitter, a Dallas (TX) radio station is reporting that TCU has been invited to join the Big East.
There are some obviously HUGE holes in this story…
1) Which radio station is it?
2) Where is a link to the story? We’ve looked, and couldn’t find anything.
3) Which TCU athletic department worker is asking to remain anonymous because TCU isn’t discussing realignment during football season?
Now, keep in mind we’ve reported on stories that came from Twitter before, being the first source to report these stories, scooping out WV Metronews, the Charleston Daily Mail, and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for example.
