Well, then name the teams that can get us a sold out Ford... I say, Texas, A&M or Arkansas. who else? And how do we get them?

TCU, Baylor & TTech (if we are competitive) have all packed Ford and have been willing to give us home games. Realistically, we may now be in a place where we could have trouble scheduling a lot of P5 teams at Ford unless we are willing to give them a 2 for 1 deal

I would guess USC, Notre Dame, and maybe Alabama would sell out Ford.

I would guess a Garth Brooks halftime would sellout Ford.

Missouri would be interesting. They have a good alum/fan base in Dallas and they no longer play games in the state of Texas outside of a game in College Station every few years.

Arizona? Arizona State?

My guess, if we are 3-0 after the start of season, the TCU game will make a National broadcast. This is an important year for Dykes and Co. Especially in the recruiting area. That's why I will be at the two home games in Sept.

I’m guessing getting in The Big 12(10) would sellout Ford.

Not if somehow Texas Christian is 0-2 though.

Arkansas Pine Bluff and Purdue, don't think they will be 0-2. Our first two are harder.

Lol to Texas ever agreeing to come to Ford. That's an Aggy move.

Already play in front of 90K at the Cotton Bowl and 100K in the Big 12 title game in Dallas. They will never, ever play in a stadium that seats 30K. ever.

I say schedule Iowa St. Maybe they would use it as a recruiting trip. Fanbase is great too.

A&M and Arkansas play each other every year in Arlington.

Pretty sure that the UA/A&M Dallas game will go back to home and home when the contract ends in the next year or two. We should be working to get UA on our schedule.

Sooooo back to annual home/home with us right? The Mercedes-Benz® Dad's Credit Card trophy of Baylor/TCU/SMU 3-way needs to happen. It's like the CIC trophy only better.

Would love to make Baylor and TCU home/home (alternating so we always get one of you at Ford) a permanent part of SMU's schedule
