Spit Blood Predictions: TCU vs. ULM

After the long off season and two straight road games to open the 2011 season, the Frogs are finally back at home tomorrow when they host Louisiana-Monroe at 1:00pm. Just a fair warning for everyone attending that parking is going to be a B, so plan accordingly.

Before you begin your magical tailgating adventure, though, we are going to have to register your official predictions for the game. Since the Frogs have been a bit up & down so far this season and ULM is a bit of an unknown to those of you that aren't intimate with the goings-on of the Sun Belt, I'll give you a frame of reference. The staff at collegefootballnews.com think the Frogs will win in a blowout, while the Warhawk fans themselves foresee a very different outcome.

As usual, please fill our comments section with your prediction on the final score as well as the projected offensive, defensive and special teams MVPs for the Frogs. Also, let us know on a scale of 1-10 how awkward the crowd's first "Skye Dawson- clap, clap, clap-clap-clap" chant of the home season will sound.Link

35-10. Frogs.

ULM scores first, but only once.

RE misses 2 FGs

I think ULM's tough run D is going to affect the balance of the Frogs' offense early on, and that combined with TCU's propensity to be gashed by trick plays will result in some nervous halftime beers with a narrow 10-7 lead.

A big special teams play, whether it be a caused fumble or a blocked punt or a great kick/punt return, gets the Frogs going in the second half. They eventually pull away to win 31-14.

Offensive MVP: Boyce with some impressive, chain-moving YAC.

Defensive MVP: Fobbs comes up with a big play. Maybe an INT.

Special Teams: I predicted a big, momentum-grabbing play above. It's either gonna be a long return by McCoy or Dawson or a big hit/kick block by Greg Burks.

Punt chant: So awful that it starts do die away...until Brandon Carter takes over those duties, whenever that may be.

Shameless Plug: If anyone is interested in some pregame action, I'll be at the intramural fields watching the TCU Alumni Rugby game.

I never get these right so I might as well guess big.

45-0 Frogs in a route turning heads in the sports world after Florida State beats OU and people wonder how good these Frogs really are.

Do you mean why does Maggie Gyllenhall have a knife?

She's also cupping some invisible thing in her hand.

That or she's about to spit in her own hand.

What? TCU isn't playing Loyola Marymount University (LMU)?

TCU 45
ULM 17

Tucker really shines with the softer defense and undersized secondary, look for 150 yards on the ground from him alone.

Braylon Broughton FINALLY has his breakout game?

McCoy on kickoffs.
