I would agree with this except that this is a [deleted] year to have home games. If things go well, you might be able to have a third of a crowd (and let's face it, the "1500" are not going to show up in September-October if they have to spread out from the home-side shade to the end zone and across the bowl). I'd absolutely let TCU have home this year, if we got home the next two after that (but only on those terms).

Rick has always been great about negotiating the order of home and home deals so I am sure we will be fine.

Hope the Frogs get roasted on social media for ducking this game. Their AD's statement in the DMN is pathetic:

Good for Rick for at least attempting to keep the game this season.
That must've been one airtight contract that TCU signed with a lowly team they'll easily roll over.

So TCU won't play SMU in Ft Worth because they already had someone else contracted to come to Ft Worth and can only play one non-conference game? I see they had Prairie View A&M on tap. Don't know whether they are still planning on playing them or not.

NOPE
SWAC canceled football already. The frogs have actually found a less formidable foe in Tennessee Tech

No SMU - TCU game this year, but not for lack of trying by Hart

Not so fast my friend..
