GP destroys Texas & OU Deathstar Theories

Having been at the State Fair this past weekend and talked to many a Longhorn and Sooner fan, I can tell you that the majority of them think two things about TCU's move to the Big 12:

1) They are in favor of it

2) They think TCU's home games against them will be played in Arlington

I refuted #2, but they- being fans of teams with more fans and therefore (in their minds) more in tune with how college athletics are run, assured me that the two Red River Rivals (and possibly "7 or 8" of the Big 12 teams) would never step foot in the new Amon Carter Stadium.

Luckily, Patterson stepped in to throw cold water on this theory yesterday:


"We built our stadium to play in it. If we play in Cowboys Stadium now it'll be for a non-conference game. We built our stadium to have purple in it"

As much as like Gary's attitude, he says stuff like this, then later finds out that it is not in his control (remember when we would NEVER play BYU again... see Oct 28th on the schedule). I will believe it when I see the official Big 12-10 schedule released.

Our stadium, while not the biggest, will be the nicest in the conference upon completion. There is absolutely no need to play at that lifeless, cavernous marketers wet dream in Arlington.

We're not building a $160 million stadium just to leave it empty for Saturday home games against our biggest rivals. It's stupid.

If I donated tons of cash to build the thing, I'd raise hell (although, like most rumors, there is zero foundation to it).

These are conference games. You can't force a team out of their home stadium, or else nobody would ever play in Waco or Ames. No worries here.

Yeah, HIGHLY doubt we'd sign that piece of paper without getting some confirmation on that. And if UT and OU want to play THEIR home game against us in Arlington, bring it on.

I wouldn't want to play home games in Arlington if I were a high school athlete in Arlington. The less time I spend in that flyover/utility space, the better I feel about life.
