    Haven't had time to be in here tonight but my Frogs are looking for real and are taking it to the Cougars. 38-7 right now.

    Did I hear correctly on ESPN that if one of the top 3 screw up and lose, TCU has the best chance to end up playing for the National Championship should they keep winning?

    TCU is #5 in the BCS right now and is actually ahead of Texas in the computer rankings at #4. Texas is #5.

    We still have a tough Utah game and in all my years as an alum and fan we always seem to have one let down game vs a weaker team. So hopefully they keep focused.

    The Horned-Frogs (love that name, there must be some kinda interesting history in how they got it ?) are more deserving than UT to go to the big game. UT has played no one while TCU has played atleast 2 real strong opponents in BYU and (I think ?) Virginia.
    I also think Boise State would be deserving. Hey, why not TCU vs. BSU ?

    We have played Clemson, BYU and Virginia.

    The Horned frog actually came about before the school was called TCU. Started in 1897. It is the State Reptile..since 1992. I know that Native Americans thought they had ancient powers. They can shoot blood from their eyes.

    If there is one thing the BCS is good for, it's giving the smaller schools an opportunity to get ranked highly which gives them all a chance for the National Championship or a BCS bowl game and help recruiting with those games.

    Seriously? Virginia lost to William & Mary the week before they lost to TCU.

    I love TCU but you need a better argument that Virginia. They aren't exactly on the same level as Texas Tech, Oklahoma, and Oklahoma St.

    Clemson was the strong second team...Utah will be 3rd big test.

    That was one of the most disappointing games last year. They dominated on defense and just couldn't put the game out of reach and the door was left open for one last drive by Utah. They should have beaten them.
