Short-lived stir-up? | by Pat

Only days after the TCU rumor surfaced, it sounds like it is getting batted down.

TCU likely won't add Notre Dame to its 2010 schedule, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Despite reports that Notre Dame was looking to add both TCU and Tulsa to its 2010 slate, TCU's schedule is already booked and probably won't change.
The brief article does float the possibility of ND playing TCU in 2011 or 2012, but it sure sounds like ND still has one game to fill on the 2010 schedule assuming the Tulsa game is a go. TCU did confirm talking with ND about a potential game, but didn't make it sound like too much progress was made.
A TCU release stated: "We’ve had dialogue with Notre Dame just like we’ve had with many other schools regarding a possible future game."
With Swarbrick mentioning that he would like to have the 2010 schedule finalized before the start of the 2009 season, more concrete reports about the final 2010 opponent should hit the wire in the next month or so.
