Report: Memphis, Big East in talks
By Andrea Adelson
The Big East and Memphis are in talks about adding the school in all sports beginning in 2013, according to Joe Schad of ESPN.
Memphis would get the Big East to 12 schools, which has been part of the league's plan ever since it lost Syracuse, Pitt, TCU and West Virginia.
Should the Tigers join, the Big East would have added four schools from Conference USA -- UCF, Houston and SMU previously agreed to join the league in 2013. The Big East also will add Boise State and San Diego State as football-only members in 2013, and independent Navy in 2015.
