I wouldn’t be so sure about that. A TCU Moody takeover is there for the taking. We already have the late start excuse in our back pocket.....


With announced attendance over 5,000 in each of our early season games, I assume there will be close to that many SMU fans so if TCU fans fill the rest of Moody's seats, should be a great environment tomorrow night

About right. When I saw the frogs play on TV they were not overly impressive.

Well, over 7,000 blue t-shirts have been ordered for giveaways in the BLUE OUT initiative. I think they're expecting a respectable turnout.
I used to be cool.

I want Jank gone (for failing on the recruiting trail more than anything) and I really want to beat TCU. So let's all get to Moody and be loud and obnoxious. Do it for the players, they are good kids and should get our support.

We can beat TCU and Jank can still get fired. The two are not mutually exclusive.
I'm curious to see what attendance is. It's our only notable non-conf home game, but it tips at 9 p.m.

I’ve seen a lot of grousing by Mustsng fans about the unfortunate late start. I think there will be a good number of no-shows.

I’m rooting hard for our guys and hope they knock the crap out of the toads.

But if we are both out-cheered and out-scored on our home court by our biggest rival....Jank should start packing. Hoiberg is available..... now.

Great point. He'd be a great get for us. Didn't even think about him as a choice.

Tonight’s crowd will tell me more about Janks future than the final score.

Win or lose, If our currently passive crowd gets upstaged by a visiting team’s fans?
Just totally unacceptable and reason for Hart and Jank to go.

Apparently TCU fans didn't care enough to fill the rest of those seats but sounds like SMU had close to 5,000 fans last night...about the same number Shumate's SWC Championship team had back in the early 90's for big games. Moody Magic was about having a legitimate Top 25 caliber program and neither team we watched last night plays that level of basketball.
