  1. There's a time and a place.
  2. Why no one goes to SMU games

    TCU was at least a top 15 team each one of those years. If 70% capacity is your idea of good attendance for a consistent top 15 team in a town with over a million people, then I guess I stand corrected. I think it's worse than UNT, to be honest. Are you a closet TCU fan with clouded objectivity? Or just a friend to the straw man argument? Or can you just disagree with me like a big boy and go on with your bad self?
  3. Why no one goes to SMU games

    I encourage you to check the home game attendance for TCU before they joined the B12. Their crowds were disappointing for a school in the middle of a town the size of FW. Saying their attendance was good is revisionist history, IMO.
  4. Dennis Parker retires

    Interesting. Wouldn't it have made more sense to place a mutilated half-consumed carcass, or skeleton in there?
  5. National championship games

    SEC, baby. SEC...
  6. I believe I agreed with you--twice! Stix asked where those stores were before they moved to the mall and mentioned one had moved to University Drive "by then". Just pointing out that they all (IIRC) had moved to University and didn't simply move directly from the square to the mall, in case there was any confusion. No worries!
  7. Sears (and I believe Bealls also) was located on University at the end of the strip close to the Movie Tavern before moving to the mall. Might have been on the square before that. Penney was located at the other end of the University strip in the building now housing Kroger. Again, might have been on the square before that, but my recollection is from the early 70's.
  8. We went down to take a look yesterday. Mini Mall is a total loss. Not sure how that will be rebuilt. La Di Da lost all of their inventory. Hopefully their building was not structurally damaged too badly to rebuild.
  9. Best in Texas (and surrounding States)

    The reality is that SMU and Houston suck. And will in perpetuity.
  10. G A Moore’s son

    Sad to hear this.
  11. FAU - Boca Raton Bowl

    Also, these announcers must have been hired as recruiters for FAU.
  12. FAU - Boca Raton Bowl

    FAU is very fast and very physical. They are also intimidating the Zips. Akron has no answer.
  13. Reality of this season?

    You make your luck. Otherwise you get beat.

  15. This Is What It's All About

    Is Bourbon still torn up? It was a disaster with construction this summer.
