Okay, I'm a fan of the TCU horned frogs, and they're Fort Worth's home team. TCU just completed a beautiful, and expensive, expansion of it's football stadium. So, just my opinion, TCU should get it's money's worth and not be playing any home games at AT&T stadium in Arlington. Even if it is against LSU.
Horned frogs stay home!

From a money point of view, having the game against LSU at AT&T is a no brainer. A school that travels well, less than a days drive away. I would be willing to bet TCU's split of the gate revenue in Arlington blows their home game revenue out of the water.

I understand the profit argument. Maybe a cost/benefit calculation that playing at AT&T stadium for a big game is a bonanza for all concerned. BUT, I also think it's a matter of pride for both TCU fans and Fort Worth, and the ill-logic of building a bigger stadium you're going to use only for the lesser games?
I have nothing against Arlington, but that city is home town to UT Arlington, not TCU. Do they still have a football team?

It wasn't a home game for TCU though. It was played in lieu of a home-and-home series. These games played in 3rd party stadiums are relatively common, and as long as it doesn't take a home game away from me (since I have season tickets), I'm good with it.

Don't you think that most TCU fans were excited to watch their team in Cowboys Stadium? I sure do...
