NBC Sports has released their Preseason Top 25, and they've got the Frogs ranked at #3, behind only Alabama and Ohio State. Most rankings that I've seen consider TCU a Top 10 team, but this is the first that I've seen rank them anywhere above 5th. I loved this part of their preview of the Frogs:
"The Horned Frogs can hardly be considered a secret any longer...Wouldn’t it be ironic to see TCU, once bypassed for admission into the Big 12, with the ability to contend for a national title out of the Mountain West? Once, that possibility seemed outrageous. Not any longer."
