    I usually put these into the weekly TV schedule recaps, but with the field narrowing, I felt it'd be better to get a recurring thread going. Below is the Week 11 breakdown of key matchups that will impact our CFP and Big 12 CCG chances. Friday Night #9 Washington @ Stanford (ESPN): We need UW to lose one more to get the Pac-12 completely out of the mix. After Stanford they have Utah and WSU at home, and likely USC in the CCG. Go Trees. 11:00 Window #12 Oklahoma State @ #24 Iowa State (ABC): The committee has shown that they value who you beat more than who you lost to, so we cheer for OSU to win out and get back into the top 8-10. Also, in the event that we end up in a tiebreaker situation for the #2 seed in the CCG, we need that to be with OSU, not ISU, given the H2H. Go Pokes. #13 Michigan State @ #11 Ohio State (FOX): This one isn't so clear cut. My initial thought was to root for MSU to completely get tOSU out of the mix, but you also have to think about what this means for Wisconsin. If MSU wins, they'll have H2H on both tOSU and PSU, which pretty much secures the East for them since Maryland and Rutgers are all that remain. I think Wisconsin stands a good chance to beat MSU and thus secure a Playoff spot, so I'm inclined to pull for tOSU or PSU to win the East and eventually knock Wisconsin out. Go Bucks. But kill me now for typing that. 2:30 Window #1 Georgia @ #10 Auburn (CBS): This could be the year that the SEC gets two in, unless either Alabama or Georgia drop one before the CCG. Kentucky and @ Georgia Tech are all that remain for the Dawgs after this. War Eagle. Florida State @ #4 Clemson (ESPN): Yes, I'm aware that FSU sucks this year. But maybe they've been saving it all for this. One can dream. Go Noles. Iowa @ #8 Wisconsin (ABC): Let's hope Iowa can pull off back-to-back upsets and kill the Big Ten's best hope. Go Hawks. Primetime #2 Alabama @ #16 Mississippi State (ESPN): See above. Mercer and @ Auburn are all that remain after this. Alabama hasn't looked like world beaters against A&M and LSU, so it's possible. Cowbell. More Cowbell. #3 Notre Dame @ #7 Miami (ABC): After this Notre Dame only has Navy and @ Stanford. Sure, they could lose one of those, but I think Notre Dame is more than legit and is on their way to stealing a spot from one of the conferences. So I'm pulling for Miami to keep as many slots open for the conferences, and because a win likely puts them into a play-in game with Clemson anyway. Go Canes. We need to win out, and get at least one break to get into the CFP, IMO. Here's how I think the Committee would prioritize a few scenarios: Alabama/Georgia winner Notre Dame if they win out Wisconsin if they go unbeaten Clemson/Miami winner Oklahoma/TCU winner if they win out Washington if they win out Alabama/Georgia loser if that's their only loss 2-loss Big Ten Champion Based on that and what's ahead, if you put a gun to my head, I'd guess the 4 will be: Alabama/Georgia Notre Dame Clemson Ohio State, Penn State, or Michigan State I just don't think either OU or TCU can beat the other team twice like it will require. Also including a link to 538's model so you can play out your own scenarios: https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/2017-college-football-predictions/

    It would be really cool if someone was able to save that patch of grass and plant it in their backyard when TCU re-turfed the field a few years ago.

    There is no way to prove it, but if roles were reversed in 2014, and Ohio State was 3rd, blowing out Purdue in a final regular season game and TCU was 6th and blew out Baylor in a CCG, we would not have leapt Ohio State. An Ohio State that didnt even play in their CCG got in. Blue Bloods get benefits of the doubt. Others do not.

    TCU is just a good football team

    Think we are a much improved team this year from last year. And think the future is really bright for us. But I haven't felt like we were a national championship caliber team all year. I could still be proven wrong. We are in a 4 way tie for 1st place in the conference and can got to the CCG if we win out. It's disappointing to get the loss, but I just don't see us having all the pieces this year to compete for a national championship. There is nothing wrong with that.

    I don't think the agenda is to keep TCU out, I think it's more passing up the little guy in favor of a bigger school. Bigger school usually means bigger ratings.

    Oh no... According to my former brother-in-law, aggy is going to money-whip GP because TCU can't afford the big coaching salaries. Of course, I haven't heard anything from him after sending him this link http://sports.usatoday.com/ncaa/salaries/ showing that GP is paid more than Sumlin. (Thanks, Endless Purple!)

    Robinson is going to be a star

    His numbers may not show it, but Robinson showed so much ability today. Get him another year of experience with decision making and get him out of 50 mph winds and he'll be special. Might be an overreaction but I'm a massive homer. His deep ball is great. He's basically Cam Newton. Robinson to Reagor is going to make Big XII defenses more sick than Boykin to Doctson.

    I love my Frogs and I want them to win a National Championship. But I just don't see this team being that caliber this year. And I really don't want us to make the playoffs and have our rear ends handed to us. Maybe I'm not good enough of a fan, but I'm pretty pleased with this season overall. Hopefully we get a good bowl game but I'm not really upset at the thought of not making the playoff.

    I know that Ms. Tweeden was making an interesting headline to her story, but I couldn't agree with her more about the whole sexual assault accusation flood now coming out being un-funny. With so many flippant comments I see here and elsewhere, it makes me wonder if men are really taking the topic seriously. I have my own #MeToo story which has caused me shame, the VICTIM, since I was 15 years old, but I still hesitate to tell it openly because of the responses to the stories of other women. Yes, some men get it and that's very reassuring. For the ones who still want to make jokes or disparage the women who have gone through the assault, they keep us silent and our perpetrators unnamed.

    Wow. Dude went from chairman of the CFP committee to the unemployment line. On second thought, that should be the trajectory for all of the CFP.

    Love my Frog family. My SIL and grand son are at the TCU game again tonight. They got there early as usual and were sitting in the nose bleed $6 seats. While sitting there some man in a suit walked up to them and asked if it was just the two of them tonight. They said "yes" and and the man said, "here you go" and gave them two tickets for the Frog Club cushy seats about 7 rows back. They're hitting on the buffet right now waiting for tip off.

    And in its first year, the CCG can do nothing but hurt the chances of a Big XII-II in the playoff. Oklahoma would be in without a CCG and if they get beat, the conference probably gets shut out. I hope we get a second chance at the Sooners and beat them, just to prove how dumb the idea is ...

    I was doing some post-game analysis with a couple of Longhorn buddies at the office yesterday, and one of them said, "You know, UT was in that game right up until the last few minutes." I responded, "Yep. Just like Japan was in World War 2 right up until August '45."

    They both have experience causing people to go into crippling debt to finance tasteless, overambitious construction projects, so I’m thinking they could be contractors who specialize in building McMansions.

    They're still ranked in the coaches poll, and 26th in the AP poll. I guess losing to Troy at home just doesn't mean what it used to anymore.

    This story just keeps on giving. If you've been following along you'll recall a few pages back that Bimbo bought TEN Yeti coolers (list for $200) for $100 each so she could re-sell them for $150 and make some easy money. Well guess who came knocking on Bimbo's door today? The Waxhachie police departmet. It seems someone has been stealing trailers (from 18 wheelers) and then selling the product inside. The Yeti coolers were from one of these trailer heists. A prior heist involed Michael Kors purses and MK accessories then there was another one that was a load of new tires, The Waxhachie PD caught wind of all this and had cameras set up and aimed at the perpetrators property. Guess who was caught on tape? From what I heard when questioned by the WPD, Bimbo said she bought the coolers from some Hispanic guy and didn't know his name or how to contact him. She may not be as mature as she thinks. Put the nipple rings back in place

    Interesting Salary Link

    You know that there is no borderline to that eroticism for him... And reading forums the other day and came across a post about him... He recently got lost on the recruiting trail. He finally had to stop at a gas station and ask for directions on how to get back to 419. The clerk said to diet and exercise.

    It wasn't a screw job, but I will reserve the right to be highly cynical until I see evidence that the committee will give TCU a fair shot.
