Epic Fatality

Happy Friday. SPIT!

Little Ol' TCU

By finishing the 2008 season ranked #7 in the nation, the Frogs have earned a Final Top 10 ranking for the 6th time in school history and for the 2nd time in 4 years (the other times were 1938, 1951, 1955, 1958, 1959 and 2005). It's even more impressive when you compare our small school on University Drive to the other schools ranked in the Top 10:

1. Florida 51,413
2. Utah 35,150
3. USC 33,389
4. Texas 48,754
5. Oklahoma 29,721
6. Alabama 27,052
7. TCU 8,696
8. Penn State 44,112
9. Ohio State 52,568
10. Oregon 20,393

So the next-smallest school in the top ten, Oregon, is nearly 2.5 times bigger than TCU. Additionally, the other nine schools in the Top 10 have an average of 38,061 students, which is nearly 4.5 times bigger than TCU! It's like a 2A high school ranking right up there with Katy, Southlake Carroll, Euless Trinity, etc. Furthermore, the second-smallest school in the Top 25 is #14 Ole Miss, which is still more than twice the size of TCU.

GP's New Theme Song

Tried to post this yesterday... giving it another go.  For those of you who don't know, the song is "Get Real Paid" by Beck.

I just saw this picture on GoFrogs and I had never seen it before. Enjoy......


After an 11-2 season, our Frogs ended up seventh in the final AP poll. This is the highest we have finished in over 50 years and very impressive for a two loss non-BCS underling.
