    I did hear that the entire Baylor football team won’t be allowed to play until next season.

    Sonny Dykes to SMU

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure that discussion went something like: SMU: Okay, Sonny, now that you're our head coach, give us all the intel on TCU. Dykes: They're gonna be kicking your ass for a long time. SMU: Is that all? Dykes: Nope. In basketball, too.

    CDC gone to Austin

    He wasnt married to us. It was a job. And he's taking another job. He's not emotionally invested like we are. And for that job and his particular skill set, frankly the UT job is right in his wheelhouse. He's a master schmoozer and people person and that's what they need in that job. Look at it this way.... there's two big dogs in the conference - OU and Texas. And I'm not talking between the lines. The guy now running the show at Texas is someone who might be more of a supporter of us than most. Something to consider in the next several years if the next shakeup occurs. I wish you well, CDC. You did well by us.

    Baylor @ TCU

    What a fun regular season! 10-2, 11th 10-win season under Coach P! Wins over Arkansas, SMU, Tech, Baylor and Texas for a SWC championship! A trip to the Big12 CCG in our first eligible season! Another shot at the loud-mouth cop evading flag planting crotch grabber!

    To the Alamo Bowl we go

    Two losses to Oklahoma doesn't hurt TCU as much as the third loss to Iowa State. In any case, this season was better than I expected in August. Back then I expected losses to Oklahoma State and Oklahoma, along with two or three other losses out of a pool of Texas, Texas Tech, Arkansas, West Virginia, Iowa State, and Kansas State. All in all, I'm very satisfied.

    This is a really tough week to figure out. I know a lot of you are holding out hope at the CFP, but I think our odds are incredibly long. In addition to beating OU, I believe our best chance is for Clemson, Auburn, Ohio State, and Stanford to win their CCGs. This would leave Ohio State, TCU, and Alabama vying for 2 spots. We have to hope that the Committee values a conference championship above all else and uses that to separate TCU and Ohio State from Alabama. If Ohio State loses and we're in a H2H comparison with Alabama alone, I believe they'll use the "eye test" to give Alabama the 4 seed and make it Clemson, Auburn, Wisconsin, and Alabama. Auburn over Georgia helps the case that 2-loss conference champions are still strong. Conference Champions Clemson 12-1 Auburn 11-2 Ohio State 11-2 TCU 11-2 Stanford 10-3 At-Large Alabama 11-1 Wisconsin 12-1 Miami 11-2 Oklahoma 11-2 Georgia 11-2 USC 10-3 Kirby Hocutt reiterated last night that the 4 tiebreakers, in no particular order or emphasis, are: conference championship, H2H, quality wins, and common opponents. A sleeper game to watch is Fresno State @ Boise State in the MWC CCG. Fresno is currently at #25, counting as a Top 25 win for Alabama who beat them 41-10 in Week 2. If they can drop out of the Top 25, that would make Alabama 2-1 against the Top 25, just like we would be. Ohio State, however, would be 3-1. In terms of common opponents, Alabama and Ohio State do not share any. Not really sure what this tells us, but we share Oklahoma with Ohio State and Arkansas with Alabama: Oklahoma: Ohio State lost 31-16 at home (15 points), TCU lost 38-20 on the road (18 points), but this assumes we eventually get a win too Arkansas: Alabama won 41-9 at home (32 points), TCU won on the road 28-7 (21 points) That all seems to sort of wash itself out, only leaving conference championships. I don't trust that they'll actually let it come to that, or that every CCG will break the way we need it to, but that's the best rooting scenario I can come up with. In terms of the NY6, we really just have to hold off Washington and USC if they lose the Pac-12 CCG. Notre Dame dropped enough and has looked bad enough that I don't think they can move them up above us should we lose. If UCF wins and we lose in a respectable way, I think they swap us to put UCF #11 and TCU #12 which would still get us into the NY6. To recap, here's how I'd root if you're holding out hope: Big 12: TCU, obviously SEC: Auburn ACC: Clemson Big Ten: Ohio State Pac-12: Stanford, big for our NY6 odds MWC: Boise State If we don't win the Big 12 CCG, I'll be pulling for Georgia, Wisconsin, and Miami though. This has been a fun thread. Thanks for playing along.

    I actually don't think he's a terrible coach, but I don't think they will have enough patience to build the right way. If they stuck with him for 7 years, it would probably be in their favor as they could end up on the winning track. However, I think they will give in to the pressure of returning to the "glory" days and fire him after he goes 4-8 or 5-7 in his third season, only to start a revolving door of head coaches promising to be the next Briles, resulting in more losing seasons.

    TCU 2017-2018 Basketball

    The guys that started the S-M-U chant last night were standing just to our left in the row right in front of us. Full disclosure: I may be old, but I used to be a DJ, and I know something about projecting my voice. When I want to, I can be LOUD. ANNOYINGLY loud. The kind of loud that startles people four or five rows in front of you so that they turn around to see who is making all that friggin' NOISE. So after the S-M-U chant, I got LOUD. Every time SMU had the ball, I yelled at the top of my lungs. I didn't even yell "Go Frogs" or "DE-FENSE." Just a sustained "E-E-E-E-E-E-Y!" And I'd take a breath and start over. And I did it standing right behind those cocaine-addled trust fund babies. People four rows in front turned around to look, but not those assholes. They just stood there and dealt with it for the rest of the game. And they didn't start their stupid chant for the rest of the night either.* (Of course, TCU's level of play might've had something to do with it as well, but even when SMU tied it up in the second half, they didn't start their chant.) They can grouse about our crowd being quiet, but they damn sure can't say the old fart standing behind them was quiet.

    I have not mentioned this to a lot of people because I didn't want to jinx it. Before the season I put a $100 bet at the Mirage in Vegas for TCU to win the National Championship this season. The odds were 75-1. That means if I won, I'd get $7,600. I was trapped in Vegas due to Hurricane Harvey and I couldn't make it home because of the storm damage. When I placed the bet they guy asked me why I was throwing away $100. He didn't think TCU had a chance in hell to win, or even make the playoffs. He unfortunately was right. However, he thought TCU would be 4,5, or 6 in the Big 12, not #2. If I won I would have donated the money to those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. I'm disappointed because TCU will not make the playoffs and I didn't win the bet. However, I am not disappointed in this team or this season. This team was 75-1 before the season! This team was 1 game away from the playoffs ( yes there was still a statistical chance if they won today.) I am super proud to be a Horned Frog and the way this team played all season.

    I've had exactly one Interaction with Coach in my life and it was positive. Basically told me that if I wanted to walk on I'd have to gain 20 lbs as he didn't want me getting murdered by Marvin White on a crossing route in Practice. It really was for my own safety. My buddies that played for him, especially in the Early- Mid 2000's say they still have nightmares of him screaming at them in practice. I think he's mellowed some, but the fire is still there. That being said, they all respect the hell out of him. So yes, he really is a good person. I think he's one of the few head coaches in college football that knows his job is to win games AND build young men.

    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!)

    It's like TCU is the touchstone for all college sports. If your team loses to TCU, then your team sucks, because BY DEFINITION, TCU is not good.* There has to be a psychological term for the phenomenon of when people lose to an adversary and somehow find it more comforting to state that they themselves are inadequate than to admit that the adversary might actually be good. I call it the "TCU Syndrome," and it's epidemic in former members of the Southwest Conference. *Except in baseball.

    Big12 Conference Championship Game

    Looking for conjecture here...what if a starting and very important player on TCU's GP team had been arrested this past summer after running from police, planted a TCU flag on the 50 yard line of, say Arkansas after the victory, and cupped his marbles toward the opposing team sideline against, let's say K-State. What would GP have done? What might the Big 12 have done?

    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.
