What's wrong with this picture? If you guessed thousands and thousands of empty seats you would be correct.
To be fair, by the start of the second quarter Amon G. Carter looked mostly full. Mostly. And it was brutally hot with almost zero breeze. A lot of people were trying to hide in the shade.
By the fourth quarter the stadium looked like the good ol' days of TCU/New Mexico WAC football.
This is what so many people around TCU clamored for years for: A real team playing another real team at a real stadium.
These are not Herman Moore's Virginia Cavaliers, but this is not North Dakota Tech. TCU is going to be a Top 15 team on Monday, and other than outdoor air conditioning Amon G. Carter Stadium has every toy possible.
I understand why fans deserted as this game progressed; it was so hot and uncomfortable that only a really close game was going to keep people around. The game was not close.
Coach Gary Patterson and director of athletics Chris Del Conte and everyone else at TCU has given its fans every reason to show up and create a home field advantage. The rest is on you.
