I think we win by 17. Something like 40-13

I hope you are not working in the financial industry or a numbers based job.  ☺️

I do like the 40-13 score prediction part.  I think the D has something to prove this year, and the guys to prove it.

Personally, I don't see the point in scheduling SMU anymore. If we do schedule them again I think it should only be played at TCU. But honestly don't think we should continue playing them and this is why:

1.)This is their superbowl and is a garbage game for the Frogs.

2.) Doesn't help strengthen our schedule and would rather schedule a mediocre to good school from an elite conference. Purdue, Arkansas come to mind. 

 

I disagree.  For college ball there are still rivalries and traditions that should be upheld.  This series has been going on for a century and has had many great games.  Our 1-11 season under Sullivan with our 1 win knocking the ponies out of a bowl was great. They also didn't drop us in the 70s.

 

I don't mind if we went to every other year with the home and home, then mix in UH, Rice or UNT in the between years.

 

As to the home only - STFU.  That is elitist speak reserved for A&M and Bama losers, and we aren't them.  Stay humble and remember that TCU could still end up back in another conference should the Big 12 implode or the top 20 blue bloods take their money ball and go away.

I'd rather play SMU than Baylor...you know, if there's a choice.

Wow heard this on the FrogCast this morning. If I told you

 

 - Duggan threw for 188 yards, 3 TDs, no interceptions
 - Anderson rushed for 161 yards, 2 TDs
 - TCU had 236 rushing yards
 - TCU outgained SMU on offense (424 yards to 406 yards)
 
what do you think the final result would have been?

Fire Gary?

 

But in all seriousness. Becoming a little frustrated. That rose bowl and peach bowl are becoming awfully far in in the rear view mirror

I think, based on this and their previous results (note in particular that UNT put a beatdown on UTSA on Saturday, and I suspect at seasons' end that ArkSt win starts to look better), that SMU has a pretty good team this year.  If that is the case, we spotted a pretty good team 2 TDs and didn't quite make it up.  If we can stop spotting teams multiple scores, and our freshman QB continues to grow and isn't put in a position to make too many mistakes, I think this can still be a pretty good season.  Not ready to give up yet.

I didn't get to go to the game because of another out of town family obligation and I haven't watched (and probably won't watch) on the DVR.  However, games like this happen when you start a true freshman QB and your defense can't stop the other team for an entire half.  If you had told me we would score 38 points, I would have assumed we would win.  Turnovers hurt us but apparently our vaunted D-line and secondary played pretty poorly to boot.  I think I way overestimated how good our defense was going to be. At this point, I would be happy with an 8-4 season.

For the ill-informed, what does rye seed do?
