Anybody concerned that the minutes are starting to add up for our 6 guys? We really need to start playing Wilfong 8 mins a game just to give some guys 1-2 mins extra rest.

Well how long should it take before we are allowed to be proud of our current position? once you have it - you might as well smack talk it.

12.684 years to be exact. I would hate for bad voodoo to kick in Peruna's law with our recent (albeit impressive) success.

There were games five or six years ago where there were less than 400 actual butts in seats.

Not as worried as I would be if Wilfong played 8 minutes every game

These guys are young and in good shape and condition. I like the idea of the Tulane game being fresh in their minds when they go to Houston.

Most NBA rookies these days which are basically the same age at college sophomores are playing a lot more basketball than our 6. I looked and from the start date of our season compared to the NBA the NBA has played close to twice the amount of games that we have.

And it looks like we will be playing at Toyota Center next season...

Renderings look great, but Fertitta should have shaved for the occasion. I hate round for basketball but it looks like they have done a better job than TCU of making it more normal.

With the exception of some new videoboards and a new court, what did TCU do to their arena? It looks like the same dump it was before they poured $50M or whatever into it

I think TCU did rearrange the complete bowl configuration so that now there is at least some center court seating parallel to the Court. Again Moody incline is better so we have better views that are "closer" to the Court than just about any arena. I love my seats Center mid-Court right in front of the big video screen-its the best of both worlds-I can simultaneously watch action on Court in front a huge big screen better than mine at Home

See how TCU "straightened out" some of the seating at Center Court:

Agreed! While I am not crazy about the Hof, is it really necessary for our fans to trash another school and their fans? Is winning not enough?

Let's start by not trashing our own fans - how about.

Give it a rest - wonder what their folks say about us - I'm sure it's all compliments and appreciation. Trash talk is what college sports is all about.

Whatever amount TCU spent it was a total waste.
