Big East drops its lawsuit against TCU

Big East Logo

The Big East has managed to settle on the departures of soon-to-be former members Pitt and Syracuse, both of which will be leaving for the ACC in July of next year.

Now, they’ve settled with the member that never fully was: TCU. The news was first reported by Bloomberg News. The case was dismissed with prejudice, meaning it can’t bring a new lawsuit regarding the same subject.

TCU has fully discharged its obligations to the Big East and the lawsuit is amicably settled without admission of liability of any party,” read a statement from the conference. However, there’s no mention if the Big East received the entire buyout it had requested.

The league previously filed suit against the Horned Frogs claiming the school never paid the $5 million exit fee in full like it had agreed.   TCU was all set to join the league last year until it received an invite from the Big 12, which it accepted.

    The Big East can now fade into oblivion. RIP a once formidable conference.

    The Big Least was never a formidable conference.

    What a great couple of moves by TCU. The decision to move up to the big leagues should be noted by Boise St. TCU is just a step or two head of them. Just think of all of the bowl payout they will get now. One tenth of all Big XII bowl payouts is more then the Big East can dream of offering.
