With one more opening on the non-conference schedule for 2010, you can get ready for another round of rumors as to who might fill that void...just like we had last year until the Clemson game was announced. The early rumor was another home game against Texas State, but now Bruinzone.com, a UCLA message board, has cranked up rumors of UCLA coming to the Metroplex to play TCU in the season opener at Jerry World.
It's impossible to say if there's any truth to this, but here's my take on it: the rumor probably got started because TCU and UCLA very well may be having discussions about playing next year (supposedly Kansas State is dropping their game vs. UCLA), but UCLA most likely wants to play in Arlington, whereas TCU wants to keep the game in Fort Worth (a position I adamantly agree with). Eventually, this will become a sticking point and both teams will move on. Isn't that essentially what happened with Ole Miss?
