TCU: Fort Worth's Team

This week, ESPN's Ivan Maisel is taking a look at the unique challenges faced by college football programs that exist in NFL markets. This is what TCU fans have been preaching for years when fans of other schools that play in cities without major pro sports have belittled our attendance. Today, Maisel takes a closer look at TCU's situation and how they've been able to brand themselves as "Fort Worth's Team" in an attempt to raise their profile out of the shadow of the Cowboys. It's a good read, but see if you can resist cringing when Chris Del Conte compares TCU to Applebee's.

Ha, the comments section of that espn article has turned into a bunch of opposing fans bitching about TCU's attendance, etc. Sour grapes.

Well they got something right....Dallas is awful and Fort Worth is awesome....I think we can mostly all agree on that

Did CDC seriously just compare us to Applebees? I know I was warned... but still. Whaaaat?

Otherwise, it's a good article. And Dallas is terrible.

Applebees is so gross. I almost rather go to Golden Coral...almost.

It's a nice, cheap place to take a huge family and several wives.

You Dallas haters clearly haven't been to the West 7th development. It's more Dallas than Dallas will ever be.
