is is a short-term return at long-term expense. State needs to fill up those 60,000 seats when the renovation is complete. Moving games to Dallas is no way to do it.
OSU has home games scheduled with Georgia, Arizona, Washington State, Clemson, Air Force, North Carolina State and Tulsa. That's pretty stout. And there's a bonus. You play the game in the finest football facility on the planet, Jerry Jones' $1 billion stadium (forget the Cotton Bowl). And you don't play in West Texas. Care to guess the last time OSU won in Lubbock? Try 1944.
From a competitive standpoint, it's a poor move. When you're trying to build a program, a home and home series, in which a 1-1 result is likely, is much preferable to a crapshoot that could go 0-2 or 2-0.
