Global Implications of Frog Football

Frogs lose. Next thing you know the Cowboy's lose, the Dow has its largest one day point drop in history, and oh yeah, then Spit Blood goes down. FAIL. FAIL. FAIL.

Needless to say, this has been one of the worst weeks on record. That said, I think all the bad luck is behind us as far as the Frogs are concerned (which is the only thing that REALLY matters). I look for them to rise from the ashes and torch Aztecitas (Spanish for girl Aztecs) this weekend, putting the season firmly back where it should be, back on track.

Please excuse the politics, only watch if your bored.

Don't Call it a Comeback

It's time to move on from a sour week for both Horned Frog football as well as Spitblood. Is it ok to say that the Frogs didn't play their best game on Saturday, or is that, as the Star-Telegram would label it, whining? Congrats to the University of Oklahoma (shortened to OU only in a backward-ass state like Indian Territory) on a great win- the Sooners are truly deserving of their top ranking.

The loss to OU hurt, but the Frogs will still have a chance to make this a great season by winning their second Mountain West championship. To do so, they'll have to beat a Top 10 team (BYU) in Fort Worth in a few weeks and face another team on the road (Utah) that could be in the Top 10 by the time the Frogs travel to Salt Lake City in November.

Before we can waste too much thought on a potential conference crown and the lofty rankings and exciting bowl opportunities that could be associated with it, however, we need to focus on the task at hand, which is the West Coast U of H: San Diego State. The Aztecs have had a rough go of it so far in the '08 campaign, having dropped decisions to laughingstocks such as San Jose State, Cal-Poly and even Notre Dame. But as TCU fans are well aware, the Frogs have a knack for not showing up the week after emotional games against Big 12 teams (Air Force after UT last year, BYU after Tech in '06, SMU after OU in '05, South Florida and really the rest of the season after Tech in '04). That is a trend that needs to change, and a thorough beating of SDSU on Saturday will be a good start.

That Was Painful

After spending hours yesterday trying to contact tech support, to no avail, and crying myself to sleep last night, I lucked into getting the site back up and running this morning. I read through all sorts of forums that had others in my similar situation and could find no answers, only more and more frustrated bloggers. I did, however, stumble across some rules and regulations that I otherwise would have never known because, honestly, who reads the terms of agreement to anything? So, when you authors out there post anything on here with unoriginal content, PLEASE provide links for everything. If someone complains about us publishing copyrighted material, they can terminate the blog, and I would have to start from scratch. Luckily, that was not the case, but reading that did scare me a little bit.

Sorry for the inconvenience this caused alot of you yesterday, I'm sure your bosses appreciated the increase in productivity.

Let's get it fired back up.
