I know, I know. The last thing we need is more Big East expansion rumors/talk, but I thought I'd share anyways. I was listening to Kevin Rogers on Sporting News Radio between six and seven EDT and he made a passing mention of the University of Houston to the Big East. No idea if he (Rogers) had any actual info to base his comment on or if it was just idle conjecture on his part as part of some general UH talk - SNR operates out of Houston.
From a personal standpoint, I could get on board with Houston as a Big East member. Houston's a huge television market, which the television execs will like, it gets the conference more exposure into Texas and Houston's had good to great teams in football and basketball. Plus, for the non revenue sports it would work from a travel standpoint to have two teams to play out that way on road trips instead of one. UCF would work from this standpoint as well with USF, but assuming that Villanova is off the table for football I'd rather add another Texas school rather than another Florida school.
