Dear Haters, Go Away.

In light of last week's revelations - or whatever they were - about the lawsuit against TCU for the behavior of some ex-athletes, including football player Lorenzo Jones, I thought this was worth recognizing. According to an in depth study by Sports Illustrated and CBS News, TCU is the only Top 25 team from last year's pre-season rankings NOT to have a documented criminal on the team. I linked the Dallas News' summary of the article, because it is kind of long winded, but it seems like a fair rebuttal to all the Baylor and Tech fans coming out of the woodwork to talk about TCU running a dirty program and that we only win because we're a team full of criminals like Kolby Griffin and Andy Dalton.

Leading the pack was Pittsburgh with 22 charged players, closely followed by future conference mate Boise with a staggering 16. Believe it or not, Texas ranked near the bottom of the rankings with only 2 players, which should be viewed as a direct correlation to their decline in quality this year. And Texas Tech was not included in the list as they were not ranked in the pre-season, although the fact that they produced America's Next Top Terrorist pretty much trumps the charges any of the included players may have had, doesn't it?

The Feds arrested some kid who had failed out of Tech* for planning to blow up W's house in Dallas.
