    The TCU website says that the Board of Trustees unanimously approved the Big-12 invite.

    I understand they will pay the $5 million exit fee to the Big East and start in the Big 12 in July 2012.

    "As for the Big 12, adding TCU would leave it with only nine members going into next season without further changes."

    The article presumes Missouri is leaving. They've only voted to explore, similar to what Oklahoma voted when they wanted to explore a Pac 12 option.

    The league will be at 10 members. Bill Snyder (KSU) wants 12 members and a championship game. Bob Stoops (OU) and Mack Brown (TX) want 10 teams and round robin play. Guess who wins.
