Students react to the postponed Battle for the Iron Skillet | TCU 360

After seeing what the Big 12 did this weekend, I’m ok with TCU not playing. But as a Dallasite, this student’s take on the game rings true with me as well.

Dallas resident and TCU junior Alex Durham was planning to go to the game but was ultimately “disappointed” to hear about the cancelation.

Durham’s connection to this rivalry is strong. Several of his family members are TCU alumni, and he has a sister who graduated from SMU. In addition, Durham’s Dallas home is within walking distance of the SMU campus, so the rivalry plays a huge part in his neighborhood and family discussions.

He said when SMU wins, its fans talk about the victory long after the game, since TCU is one of the best teams the university plays.

“It’s like a Super Bowl for them, and it’s just a normal game,” Durham said.

I’ll be honest, it was a pretty funny video. Glad they are making good use of the rare opportunity. Stuff like that makes rivalries fun.

A simple “Pony Up” from head coach Sonny Dykes in a video cooking up frog legs on a skillet at his home was a part of the trolling as well as highlights from last year’s win over the Horned Frogs throughout the day.

Georgia native Jordan Edwards has pledged to the Horned Frogs.

Last February, as a junior at South Forsyth High School, she placed 6th in the 7A 100 fly (57.28) and 10th in the 7A 100 breast (1:07.18) at the 2020 Georgia GHSA 6A-7A State Championships. She also swam breast (30.83) on the 11th-place 200 medley relay and anchored the 14th-place 400 free relay (53.34).
