The windy city?

Greetings from the press box at TCU. The weather here the past few days has been terrific. Just a slight chill in the air, calm blue skies. I woke up this morning to find a brisk wind, making it by far the coldest morning so far. Looking across the stadium now, the flags at the top of the concourse are whipping in the wind, so it looks as though it’s going to be a cold one today. But hey, these guys are football players, and they still are warming up in their t-shirts and shorts on the field as we speak.

Funny moment a few minutes ago: Jordan Kay and Andrew Larson were kicking field goals, when defensive end Rulon Davis butted in. His 50-yard attempt fell harmlessly at the 10-yard line.

Air Force coach Troy Calhoun has been playing the size card all week, painting his team as smallish underdogs. The size differential is apparent as you watch warm-ups. But as Jeff Tedford has been saying, the Falcons won nine games somehow.

I’ll check in a little bit later as we get nearer to kickoff.

    JO – Thanks for your great coverage all year long. Do you have any more facts as to what triggered the disciplinary action to sit the three starters today? Also, how large is the contingency of Cal fans out at the game? I’m sure we’ll be facing an anti-Cal crowd, so hopefully we can counteract some of that.
