TH03 the home and home was scheduled for 2013 and 2014. TCU did not bitch out of anything.


LSU316

Do you not think ESPN would go to the LSU TCU game as a season opener if it were at LSU or TCU? The game would still get national coverage.


As far as exposrure sure we will get TV commercials and etc. but how many LSU fans walk away saying TCU is one hell of a nice school and campus. How many end up saying, I can't beleive how new and nice everything is or how great it was to tailgate with TCU fans.

Ft Worth as a whole will not skip a beat just like the big city of BR would not if a home game is lost. But dont for one minute think there is not substantial revenue that flows into a city when large traveling schools come to town. Hotels, resturants, liqour stores, etc. All the way down to the tri delts who sell programs at the game.

frick Jerry Jones and Cowboys Stadium, and frick LSU for taking away that home game to go there. I might leave after the first quarter tomorrow just to spite.

"It is not a net home game loss if you read the damn story. We are replacing the home and home with one game in Cowboys classic. Great move if you ask me. Much better than us ever playing at TCU."

I'd rather do a home and home with TCU than support Jerry Jones and that home game get replaced with Savannah State

i bet the cowboy classic pays more than TCU makes at a home game

so i dont think TCU is losing any money. Unless their athletic director and administation are just willfully throwing money away

I seriously doubt that. Remember that last time we were alloted more tickets than Oregon because of the distance they had to travel.

TCU is located right down the road in Fort Worth. They brought over 30,000 fans to the Rose Bowl in 2011. The locals will be rooting for them as well.

They will outnumber us....not that it matters though.

We do owe Tulane a game in New Orleans still. I wonder when that will be?


Rumor is that Toolame wants LSU to be its 1st home opponent if their new on-campus stadium is ever built. They want to fill their projected 35K seats for the 1st & only time.

but now MORE LSU fans will come to the game. Significantly more, as its a neutral site game in a larger stadium. Even if only a quarter of the fans stay in Ft. worth, it's still more than a standard home game at Amon Carter.

No because they would go see Bama play Texas Tech at Jerry's World

Sure it would......but to say it would be the same magnitude as a big Classic game is off base.

quote:

how great it was to tailgate with TCU fans.


This will probably still be said I would assume unless the TCU folks can't make that arduous trip to Dallas.....as far as the campus goes all that is nice to hear people say but how far does it really get you. I've already forgotten what LSU fans said about going to Arizona St's campus a few years back.

Again I would assume that TCU had to agree with this.....so again I say it appears that TCU really doesn't have much grief for the hurt Ft. Worth will feel over this decision.

Do you remember how many fans went to Dallas without tickets? It felt like half of our fans went just to tailgate.

"I was skeptical of the article because the official LSU future schedules only lists TCU once."

Both TCU games have been on the schedule on LSU's site for a while, they probably just updated it.

You aren't alone in that. A lot of BR-area businessmen are revising their projected earnings for next season already.

Losing a home game is almost like a year without Christmas for retailers.

Wait lets not jump off a cliff here.....it ain't that bad for anyone. I mean bars, restaurants, hotels, rental car places, and MSY may feel it cut pretty deep but not as bad as if Santa shut down In fact if I were a clothing retailer I'd think that a Saturday where LSU loses a home game may be a day that my sales increase.....but I could be wrong.
