    Re: tech take on tcu ...

    This weekend is a match-up of 2 wounded dogs. I hope we circle the wagons, find some mental toughness, and beat these toads into the ground.

    Re: tech take on tcu ...

    Well at least we know Tech fans like us? Even though we've sucked this year it still seems like quite a few teams have "respect for us" or dont think we are as bad as our 1-7 record not that it means anything. I guess teams are complimentary of teams they kick the snot out of too. Its hard to be mean to a pathetic losing team.

    Will we have Wimberly? If Wimberly plays I predict we win.

    well, tcu is bad, a-town. it's just that the frogs came here all full of themselves and people haven't forgot, particularly down in texas. isu is a better club at home and should win this game and beat kansas university as well. wvu and certainly ou will be struggles.

    I think only (a large chunk) of cyclone fans think we really suck. Most everyone else thinks were having a down year.

    Come on TCU. We need a slump-buster. Doesn't matter how pretty she is . . .

    It's much more about them despising TCU than liking us. They have a hard on about TCU being in the Big 12.

    Re: tech take on tcu ...

    Teams respect us because they don't have emotional attachement. They can clearly see we are having a down year/rebuilding year/whatever you want to call it.

    Thats usually how football works. If your name isn't Alabama you are going to have good years and bad years. Should our good years be more than 3 wins in conference? Yes. Does that mean we are immune to bad years just because are good years are average? No.

    This is true EVERY TX Tech fan I talk to HATES TCU. I guess it is the battle of the "little brothers" in TX as they both have had to put up with the Longhorns and Aggies success.

    I'm afraid that TCU is likely to have a big game and correct a lot of problems this weekend. Hope I'm wrong.
