It was sufficiently cringey when the tv people started with the revivalry crap. If TCU had simply ignored that and called it, ohhh, I don’t know, say, “the upcoming Baylor game,” the revivalry thing would die of lack of interest.This a tough scheissing crowd. Short of images of the Alamo and a Mockingbird, there’s not much else that could be added to this trophy that would make it more “Texas”.
What would you want to see on the trophy? What would you rather call the game?
I wish the we call it “Beat the Dog [ Finebaum ] Out of the Bears” with a trophy of a TCU player cleaving a green and yellow bear to death with an axe. Short of that, I think the given name and trophy are just fine…
BEAT THE PUKES!

Ugh, terrible IMHO. Generic. Blah. I liked "The Revivalry," but if that *had* to go, surely something better could have been found if just a small amount of imagination had been applied.
Here is one of a number of announcement stories you can find on the web:
After facing each other for more than a century, the rivalry between Texas Christian University and Baylor University officially has a name.www.cbsnews.com
I legit can't remember the last time I was unable to see a TCU conference game on TV, even up here in Minnesota. I was actually amazed at how many games I could get even back in the CUSA/MWC days.Due to the TCU vs. Baylor football game airing on ESPN+, there will be no official watch parties this week. We hope to see all Frog fans at locations around the country for the regular season finale next week on Friday, Nov. 24.
Sherman High versus Hillsboro High?
We play rivals for a saddle or a skillet in the past.....this just lacks imagination and creativity.When two administrations get together and make a decision like this, it really makes you wonder how in touch with fans, and really, college football in general, they really are.
There’s nothing about this name (or the trophy itself) that screams big time college football.
