TCU Baseball Reality TV Show

A new reality TV show focused on TCU Baseball will start Thursday night, when "Reaching the Peak: Destination Omaha" premieres on The Mtn. So if you've got DirecTV, you'll probably enjoy the five-part series, with new episodes running until June 10th. If you're like me and don't have DirecTV, well, I guess someone can let us know what happens.

CFN & Scout Give TCU The Kiss of Death

Well, yesterday they had their possible BCS scenarios, and today they have their bowl projections. While I love the publicity, I would rather be the underdog. Here is where they project us playing.

January 10, 2011 Glendale, AZ
BCS Championship 8:00 pm ABC
BCS No. 1 vs. BCS No. 2
Way Too Early Projection: Ohio State vs. TCU
WHY? Here's the call (and remember, it's May ... don't get mad if and when we flip-flop before the season). The SEC champion will have two losses, but if it's undefeated or has one loss, it's in Glendale over an unbeaten TCU/Utah winner. The ACC, Pac 10, Big East, and Big 12 champions will also have two losses, Ohio State will lose once, to either Wisconsin or Iowa, and will have the best record among BCS teams. The other out-of-left-field call is Nebraska, who has the right schedule and gets Texas at home. Basically, if there are two BCS teams with one loss or, of course, are unbeaten, TCU is out.

Newest Regional Projections

As the regular season draws near it's conclusion, the NCAA Tournament field is starting to take shape. There isn't a whole lot of difference- at least where TCU is concerned- from last week in this week's NCAA Regional Projections from Southeastern Baseball.

They've still got the Frogs as a #1 seed and host for the second consecutive year- they have the Fort Worth Regional also including #2 seed Rice, #3 seed Texas Tech and #4 seed Oral Roberts. That would mean a packed stadium for nearly every game, but also a tough road for the home team.

Should TCU get past that first weekend, they would be matched up against the winner of the Austin Regional, which is being hosted by Texas, who is the #2 overall seed in the entire tournament. Filling out that regional are #2 seed Oregon, #3 seed Texas State and #4 seed Southern. A potential TCU/UT rematch in the Super Regionals would be played in Austin, but if any of those other teams got past the 'Horns, then the Frogs would be the hosts of the Super.

Q&A with Matt Purke

Matt Purke, who turned down millions of dollars to play for the Rangers and is now 8-0 for TCU, sat down with the Star-Telegram's Stefan Stevenson for an interview yesterday:

Purke has no regrets

Morning Dump

Spitpurple is unable to dump this morning, but don't worry- I'm a trained professional. This will just...take...a minute. Don't fight it.
