If it rains for TCU it will still be very full with only a few straglers bagging out due to weather...... next year with Oregon and/or USC, etc.... that will sell out with 20K more seats no problem!!

Weenus icon NEW: The game was sold out. Butts in seats really don't matter to the athletic department when the seats are generating income regardless of the ticket holders attendance. (nm)

A-Utah-Man-Am-I icon NEW: TCU is greater than or equal to the best Pac 10/12 teams. So, yes it will be PACKED regardless of the weather that day. (nm)

o NEW: I think at this time closing in SEZ and getting a nicer locker room etc for the players is within reason. (nm)

Sonic Ute icon NEW: If the reason to expand is $$$, the U lost money by not having more seats to sell to saturday's game (nm)

o NEW: Dr. Hill said expanding is not going to happen soon. He probably wants to what happens when he doubles the Crimson Club fees next year. Not a dime of tax payer money will go to any kind of expansion. It will a donor. (nm)

o NEW: Man I hope they don't double prices and fees....... that would price out all poor people from going to the games. It's already pretty expensive. So what about the rumors of all PAC visitors are given at least 3 sections?? is that true??
