    TCU Stadium Renovation Pics

    Stadium Pics / East Side Sneak Peak - Frog Fan Forum - Killer Frogs [.com] v. 4.0

    Wow...looks fantastic. Anyone who thinks they shouldn't be in a big time league needs to STFU. They are definitely here to stay!


    Good times on Hawkeyenation.com after the 2010 Wisconsin Game!

    Re: TCU Stadium Renovation Pics

    Wow... just wow. That is awesome.

    They have belonged in the Big 12 for quite some time really. In the past several years, they would have finished no worse than 3rd in the Big 12 IMO. And now their stadium will be one of the nicer ones too.

    We HAVE to get started on bowling in the SEZ next if we want to remain in the Big 12 for a long time. Outside of KU, we have the worst stadium by far. And only the kool aid drinkers can deny that. It's not even close.

    Does anyone know how many TCU's stadium will seat? Not that it really matters, that place is awesome. Bowled in on both ends and double deck nearly all the way around. Nice.

    Anyone who thinks they shouldn't be in a big time conference should just look at their program's history.

    Baylor? And a solid argument for Purple Kansas. Texas Tech maybe (I've never been but I never get the feel that it is an opposing place to play.)

    I saw a lot of losing seasons outside the past 10 years. I can see why they didn't get in the Big 12 in 94.

    Our stadium is not really any worse than Kansas State and Texas Tech and is still better than Kansas and Baylor.

    Re: TCU Stadium Renovation Pics

    What's the capacity going to be?

    It really will look nice, though. Probably about the perfect size for TCU too.

    Baylor is getting a new stadium, and K-State's renovation will put them ahead of us. Agree that Tech is a push, and Kansas is still Kansas.

    Until Kansas gets rid of the track around its field, it will always be at the bottom of the list.

    You would have taken Baylor over TCU if it was your decision?

    I also see a lot of more losing seasons outside the past 10 years (and during the past 10 years) for us than they have so I don't think we should be too quick to guide their qualifications as a BCS conference quality school.

    No matter how big of a stadium Baylor gets they will still not be able to draw more than 40,000 fans.

    Baylor is getting a new stadium and K-State already has a bowled in end zone and is getting a huge new pressbox. We need the SEZ project done to keep in

    Up until 94, Baylor and TCU's history was not really much different. Today is a much different story.
