God is it five yet?

Mountain West: 3 or 4 NCAA bids?

While the Horned Frog men's basketball team's season has been shot for a while now, the rest of the conference is playing pretty well and could bring home the bacon like the TCU football team did in the fall. The latest ESPN bracketology has four Mountain West teams in the NCAA Tournament (for comparison, the SEC also has four), including New Mexico as a #2-seed. The others are BYU as a 4, UNLV as a 7 and San Diego State as 13 seed and one of the last four teams "in".

Remember, the teams in the tournament- and the further they go once they get there- determines the amount of money the conference will get out of the TV money. So you'll want to root for SDSU to get in and then for New Mexico and BYU to take advantage of what are expected to be high seeds and advance.

On the women's side, it looks as though the Lady Frogs may have to defend their regular-season conference title and win the MWC Tournament to assure themselves of a ninth NCAA Tournament appearance in ten years, as the latest women's bracketology projects the MWC as a one-bid league. They've got the Lady Frogs as a #8-seed currently.

Pay the Man!

Former Frogs linebacker David Hawthorne, who has become a starter in Seattle and earned the nickname "Heater" for reasons that probably do not involve bumming cigarettes, deserves a significant pay raise from the $350,000 he earned in 2009, according to his agent. Come on, Paul Allen- how is he supposed to make ends meet on a salary like that?

In other TCU alumni-related NFL free agency news, the New York Jets have acquired former All-Pro corner Antonio Cromartie, which could affect the job status of former Frog Drew Coleman. We'll keep an eye on that situation.
