TCU game is off

Postby PonyPride » Fri Sep 04, 2020 4:48 pm

From gofrogs.com:

Statement from TCU Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Jeremiah Donati:

"We are disappointed to announce that our upcoming football game against SMU will not be played as scheduled on September 11. We have agreed with SMU to monitor dates throughout the season to potentially make up the game.

"In the course of following CDC guidelines and our aggressive testing and contact tracing strategy, we discovered that some student-athletes and support staff in our football program have tested positive for COVID-19. Those individuals were notified immediately and are currently abiding by CDC protocols.

"No one is currently facing serious health issues, and we intend to continue our enforcement of strict standards to protect the program and our community. Everyone's health and safety remains our top priority. We share in your disappointment, but firmly believe we will be ready to resume football activities soon. We will continue to follow prevention and testing protocols and look forward to our Big 12 Conference opener against Iowa State on September 26."

Sounds like it could be made up. So that’s good.

The first graph makes it clear the game could be made up. Monitoring for open dates.

Don't be too quick to judge...could be our guys next. Plenty of opportunities to be exposed and with the ultra cautious approach once anyone tests positive, it's going to be a struggle playing a full season.

True. But TCU plays Kansas State on SMU's open weekend, and SMU plays Tulane and Houston on TCU's off weekends.
Possible, perhaps, but seems whether it's realistic or not remains to be seen.

Maybe it will end up where the game is moved to December for National Championship implications like SMU vs. Oklahoma in 1985.

So let's review...

-With the Big 12, er, 10, uh whatever initially announcing only one OOC game, TCU first announces that SMU and TCU will not play...

-Then TCU will play SMU, but only at their house...

-Then "we got the beer-virus", and uh, some of our key players will have to sit out, so the game is off again...but boy do we want to play you guys!

TCU should move to the BIG 10...er, 11, uh whatever they are calling themselves. The Frog's OODA loop is broken too.

Hope the kids involved return to health.

Sonny and staff are killing it with coronavirus. Heard we had no cases today. Meanwhile, at TCU...

Not to mention DAllas has been the worlds hotspot all summer.
