Eat Mor Bowl Bids

While most of you are probably sitting at home listening to the ESPN dudes gush over Texas clinging to a 14 point lead over A&M, I'm sitting in a hotel room listening to the ESPN dudes gush over Texas clingint to a 14 point lead over A&M. The point being, I've had a lot of time today to read all things Frog. Interestingly enough, the big rumor today is that TCU is not only going to go outside of the MWC bowl tie ins this post season, but that we could slot into the Peach Bowl against the SEC or ACC. I'm not sure how this would work out because there's pretty much no way either of those conferences wouldn't be able to fill their slots, but I'm just the messenger. Regardless, it sounds like there's a chance the Frogs will be going outside of the Pointsettia or Las Vegas Bowls (please not Rice in the Houston Bowl) this post season. We'll see how this plays out in the next couple of weeks.

I am Thankful...

That GP is still our coach, but I was not pleased when I woke up this morning and grabbed the local sports section only to read this. Ultimately I still fully believe GP will stay, but I figured might as well up-date on the rumors. 

While Kiffin is now the focus of UT’s coaching search, a source has told the News Sentinel that Gary Patterson of Texas Christian also had contact with UT recently.

Patterson’s regular season was complete as of last Saturday meaning he is more available for interviews. Patterson’s name has also been circulated with the Clemson vacancy.
