So, back in June it was reported that FedEx CEO Fred Smith was offering $10M annually to the BCS conference that would take Memphis into their fold.
Matt Jones of Kentucky Sports Radio just tweeted that the Big East has taken him up on the offer.
@KySportsRadio: Rumor to file away in case it happens: reliable source tells me Memphis will join the B-East Tues.
If this is accurate (and we all know how accurate similar rumors were this spring), what effect, if any, would this have on the Big Ten's calculus vis-a-vis Big East expansion targets?
In any case, this is something to watch for.
