Highlight Reel

Yeah yeah, I know football season is over, but I thought this was a nostalgia piece worth posting.  It's only 4:17 long and skews heavy on the SFA game, but it has some useful shots and is probably the only football highlight video featured on youtube that isn't set to, "Here Comes the Boom."  

ESPN says Frogs are a Tournament Team

In the latest edition of his increasingly popular Bracketology that came out yesterday, ESPN's Joe Lunardi has TCU in the NCAA Tournament as a #13 seed in the South Regional.

Wow, and I thought that the Frogs being mentioned as a bubble team in Bracketology a few weeks ago might have been a high-water mark. The ugly L they took against New Mexico on Saturday made this announcement even less predictable. Personally, I am not sold on the '08-'09 Frogs as a bona fide Tournament Team. Don't get me wrong- I am loving the transformation that Jimmy C has brought, but the losses to BYU and the Lobos were pretty sobering. Love to see the Frogs getting attention from a national writer, though!

Joining TCU in Lunardi's hypothetical bracket are MWC members UNLV (an 11 seed) and BYU (12). Among the last 8 teams out of the tournament are the Frogs' next two opponents: San Diego State (Wednesday in SD, 9:00pm on CBS-College) and Utah (February 4th at home).
