College football's National Signing Day is on February 2nd, and as of now it looks like the Frogs class is all set.

With the MWC officially moving the Boise State-TCU game to Boise and Texas Tech backing out of a home game all in the past week a once promising 2011 home slate is now in shambles.

Right now the hot rumor is that the schedule will be filled out with home games against Louisiana-Monroe and Lamar(FCS), and a road date against BYU in Cowboys Stadium in November. I don't know about you but a home slate of Lamar, SMU, Louisiana-Monroe, UNLV, CSU, and New Mexico doesn't really inspire me to plunk down a few hundred bucks for season tickets. Luckily the stadium capacity will be reduced from 44k to 34k due to construction.
