rain... who does it benefit if anyone?

Supposed to rain and a good chance of it. Normally Id say it benefits us and we are typically a run first O but with this likely being Deltons first true start I just don't know. Add to it that it aint like TCU doesn't have a run game. I do feel our D is definitely better at stopping the run typically... thoughts?

Slick field surfaces favor a power running game over a speed running game. It just depends on how much rain and if the field is wet/slick. If so, I would expect a big dose of Barnes followed up with Silmon and hopefully McCoy. Speed is neutralized somewhat by the surface, which helps us IMO. Just comes down to conditions at gametime. May not be a big deal at all.

If at all, rain generally benefits the bigger/stronger teams over the faster/finesse teams. That being said, my $.02 is that its a non factor Saturday. I don't think this being Delton's first start matters either. Dude looked comfortable and confident at Texas. Hope we get more of the same this weekend!

tcu looks more like k-state than any other team in the league. so, i doubt it plays a big part other than who puts it on the turf.

Rained last year in Ft. Worth. K-State 30-6.

90 percent chance of rain Saturday.

Guess this rivalry will now be called the "Purple Rain" game……

Ha! Good one. It should be a good game. I haven't seen the spread, but I have a feeling it will be a close game, hopefully with us coming out on top.

Go 'Cats!!!

Latest line has KSU sitting at +6, with O/U at 51. So far 90% of the money is betting on TCU, with 98% of the money line going to the Toads. "Cats could make Vegas a big winner with a straight up win.

I don't think the weather will be a big benefit factor for either team. TCU and KSU are very similar teams. The difference maker will be a QB that can run vs. 2 of the slowest linebackers in the Big12.

TCU has slow linebackers? Good to know!
