The TCU-Stanford game will be played at 12 p.m. Saturday at Amon G. Carter Stadium instead of 6 p.m. with the expectation that Hurricane Ike could produce 3-5 inches of rain and 40-50 mps winds in the Fort Worth-area Saturday night.
Check back later for more details.

Note to fans, show up!
Note to team, beat the (insert expletive) out of Stanford!
Now if we can just get that hurricane (notice the double meaning there) to change course.
So far this year the MWC is 1-0 vs the mighty Pac-10 with the chance to move to 5-0 after this week. Of the four games on this week's slate each conference is favored in two. I realize that this by no means has any effect on the outcome, but it would certainly reason to logic that there is at least some decent competition in our conference.
It's weekend's like these where the MWC has an opportunity to prove itself on a national stage that we need all of our teams to show. I can guarantee that if by some chance we end Saturday 4-0 versus the PAC-10 there will be some, though it may be slight, coverage in our favor.
Take in to account the slipping of the ACC and Big East, in particular their out of conference records, and if the MWC continues on its current path it will be only a matter of years before we garner an automatic BCS ticket. Remember the rules changed last year and from here on out the BCS league will be determined by their performance in the previous four years.
For now though, I am perfectly fine and would in fact prefer, opposing players to look down on us. It will just make it all the more enjoyable when Stephen Hodge breaks Mr. Baldwin's flapping jaw.
Hey there Doug, you might want to check the "level of competition" comments made by Baylor & Tech players before they came to Fort Worth. Neither of those teams scored a touchdown and one of Tech's receivers damn near had his brain quit on him while he lay writhing on top of the MWC logo on our field.
Also, uh, I'm pretty sure we beat you AT YOUR HOUSE last year.
