Paquette told cbssports.com on Thursday that the Big East's official stance was the reports by the Orlando TV statio were not true.
WKMG out of Orlando is reporting that the Big East will most likely be extending invitations to both UCF and Memphis by as early as next week.
Cbssports.com had reported earlier in the week that the Big East would likely go after both Memphis and UCF if the Big 12 had fallen apart. That didn't happen when Texas and the other Big 12 schools chose not to join the Pac-10.
