Virtual TCU vs. Boise

If you're like me, you'd watch just about any kind of football right now- seriously, last night I watched about a quarter of the replay of Auburn-Oregon on ESPNU, even as mad as it made me to watch that BS- so you'll find this snippet of a virtual game between the Frogs and Boise State way better than the Wimbledon and women's soccer that ESPN is currently eye-raping us with.

I originally saw this on Angry Trey's Blog, where he mentioned that NCAA Football 2012* comes out today for X-Box and PS3, so I assume that is big news for those of you that still play video games. Yes, I still have a Sega Genesis hooked up to my TV at home, but it's mostly a conversation piece...aside from the occasional latenight NHLPA Hockey '93 battle.

*- Why is it NCAA Football 2012? It's coming out before the 2011 season.

Andy Dalton wants you to buy season tickets

Even though Andy Dalton will be living in Cincinnati this fall (that is, if there is a "this fall" for the NFL), he still wants as many people as possible cramming into Amon Carter Stadium on Saturdays in his absence. The all-time winningest quarterback in school history is placing calls (or, more accurately, he recorded this call and a computer is making the calls) to urge TCU fans and Fort Worth residents to buy season tickets to watch the 2011 Frogs attempt to build off the momentum created over the past few years. Someone named Rob Gordon recorded the message left on his machine by the future College Football Hall of Famer:

Andy Dalton, professional pitch man

Nice work, AD. I'm thinking there's probably a Cincinnati-area furniture store or car dealership that ought to get in the Andy Dalton business and pay him big bucks to recreate this or this.
