TCU 36, Boise State 35

Two hands, Kellen. One hand can't handle all of that mouth-breath.

Hahahahahahahahaha!

It definitely didn't play out as any of us had predicted, but oh my what a win for the Frogs! If you'd told me that we'd lose so bad in time of possession, have 33 yards rushing, have as many fumbles as we'd have AND as many TERRIBLE calls go against us, I'd guess that we'd be mourning a 30-40 point loss.

But that's because we under-estimated the arm of one Casey Pachall, and he lit up the Boise defense for nearly 500 yards and ended up out-dueling Casey Affleck and the Broncos, ruining the perfect season of Boise state in a thrilling 36-35 victory.

We've got plenty more coverage of this momentous win to come, including what I'm sure will be a thorough recap from Sir Wesley Willis and a new segment I like to call "Gracious Winner/Sore Winner" that I hope to hammer out tomorrow. I'll also be perusing the Boise State boards for some good "Sour Grapes" material. If you see any out there, please send it to lylelanleygofrogs@gmail.com. I'l totally give you a shout-out.

I don't know about you, but I'm about ready to fall into a blissful sleep- entirely satisfied that our boycott on grody Idaho potatoes helped put the Frogs over the top. I'll also be fairly happy because I don't live in Boise. Double-scoreboard.

Stunned... just stunned... I started thinking maybe our boys would pull it off just before game time and then all but resigned myself to a close but no cigar loss by a last minute field goal. Man... I can't wait to watch this on DVR (I was at work during the game).

And Texas was humbled, Tech humiliated, SMU Blew at home against Navy, and Baylor had to scrape and claw an overtime victory over a Kansas squad that basically said, "Oh what the hell, let's just go for two... who really cares anyway."

Game-winning FG goes wide right. Kellen Moore mouth breathing on the right sideline. Coincidence? Hmmmm...

And I thought we had attendance woes. 34,146?
Gotta love Todd McShay's tweet: "No team gets more calls on key plays than Boise State."

I have to say it one more time, because this is so sweet:

GMFP!!!!!!

Also, let's not discount how great it feels for the win to totally shove the MWC's treatment of TCU leaving right back in their face.

Flew from Florida to 2 TCU road games in 2011. The Rose Bowl and this one. Wow... This coach and team has grit.

Welcome to the official end of the "Post Andy Dalton Era" and the official dawn of the "Casey Pachall Era". There was really little doubt that Casey would be able to succeed and fill Dalton's vacated position well, but after this game... good god ya'll...
He's 46 yards away from Andy's first year output and he's still got 3 games left (including bowl game). And his TD pass total exceeds Andy's first 2 years worth.
Sure he's got concrete feet, but those Herman Munster Hooves got that first 2pt Conversion so I can't complain.
Maybe... just maybe... with increased Big12 exposure, we'll have an honest to got shot at a Heisman Winner

I can't believe I'm saying this, but I hope Oklahoma State wins the national championship and puts the Big 12 on top -- just in time for TCU to come in and kick some butt!
