  1. Congrats Fresno on the top 20. Well deserved. Congrats SDSU on the top 30 rating.
  2. Probably after the Boise Oklahoma bowl game. A lot of energy was wasted with in-fighting between the MWC and the WAC.
  3. However, even you would agree joining former SWC BU, UT, and Tech was nice for TCU, right? And this weekend's Battle For The Iron Skillet is great because of the rivalry, right? And when Texas leaves and likely never plays TCU again out of a bowl game, it will kinda suck, agreed? Especially given how TCU has dominated the series over the last decade. Having history matters, as well as regional ties. It has been much better for TCU that it has been in the B12 for a decade rather than playing in the Big East/AAC, and not just for the money difference.
  4. I don't come here for BYU talk and spent most of the last decade since TCU and BYU lurking. The MWC remains my 2nd favorite conference and the only one I follow much outside of the B12. That being said, this looks like a pretty good year for BYU. LES is rocking like it was in the 80s and 90s instead of having almost no home field advantage. The team plays tough in ways it hasn't for awhile. It still has room to grow, but I was expecting 7-5 before the season, even after last year. BYU could easily have been 0-3 at this point.
  5. Crazy crazy. MWC > P12. Congrats!
  6. So much for UCLA being good....P12 sucks (except Oregon)
  7. Looking good, Aztecs! Now finish this!
  8. It appears some don't understand the concept of a "time slot" and what represents "good" ratings for a game starting at 10:30 pm eastern. BYU v Utah beat USC v Stanford. And no, Utes don't draw ratings like BYU. BYU is the ESPN Saturday night cap for the 3rd week in a row for a reason.
  9. I have been a Raider fan since before they moved to LA. Vegas and the Raiders are a pretty ideal fit.
  10. I have followed the MWC schools for a long time. Sure, they were rivals, but I have lots of history with all of them. My mom and my wife are UNLV grads. I have been a big UNLV basketball fan since the Tark. And this is a pretty good place to visit occasionally. I do hope for continued success for every MWC team. I root for them against every P12 team.
  11. Congrats, Aztecs! I love seeing SDSU being strong and I wish you great success. Go run the table and get the NY6 bid!
  12. Exactly. The 06 game, a week night game, had 32k fans, which was the 2nd best attended game in 06,after the Tech game(45k). Tech did not outnumber TCU, but it was close, likely 17-20k Tech fans. BYU had about 14-15k fans, but that was as close as it ever was to "even". It did feel like a BYU home game, especially in the 2nd half, as the TCU crowd started leaving and the BYU fans were very loud. For the 08 game, also a Thursday game, there were 36k fans (best attended game in Fort Worth that season), of which 14-15k were BYU fans. Thursday night games hurt attendance and both
  13. Texas dominated the State just behind the Cowboys....in 2006. At that time, TCU was almost unknown by casual sports fans even in DFW. This all changed by the TCU Rose Bowl trip. TCU went from being non existent to getting state wide t-shirt fans. I remember stopping for bathroom break in Van Horn Texas (about 450 miles from Ft. Worth, or further than Provo to Las Vegas), and some 12 year old boy asking where my kids got the TCU t- shirts they were wearing. Likewise, Baylor's corrupt success with Briles greatly expanded Baylor's support. Texas remains the top college team
