The SOUR GRAPES For The Week -
Gumnut Gets Lucky
And Even More Arrogant Edition

The game against Gumnut was a true classic, a thriller that no one really lost, in which one team just scored more after 3 overtimes. Truly a classic for the ages. Something that will help both schools develop a newfound respect for each other.
BUZZZ-WROOONNNNGGGGG!
Having read what Gumnut fans (Gumnutters?) have said about one of the all time Big 12 instant classic games one would think that TCU was down by 90 in the first quarter after the whole team got caught at Craig James's new brothel in Highland Park taking the "Burying Hookers 101" class. I may have to go back to referring to the school we played last week as tech - using the word Gumnut to refer to them is a little too insulting - to Gumnuts.
Texas Tech has got to have the single most arrogant, smack-mouthed, self important fan base in the nation. They live in their own little world where they have apparently already won the National Championship against Alabama by 102 points, as well as the Super Bowl and whatever Bowl it is that the NFL Europe teams used to win. Oh yeah, and the Grey Cup (that is the Canadian err, "Football" championship trophy, but Canadian "football" is a whole other topic for another day).
When SB Nation starts running major stories entitled Texas Tech fans make fun of Casey Pachall you have to start wondering just what is going on in Lubbock and if there is some sort of psychoactive drug to treat it. The posts that I found from Tech fans after Tech's 3 point outscoring of the Frogs were simply too mind numbing to believe. Just to give you a sample (I am not going to justify the inane silliness of tech fans by quoting more than a couple) "TCU showed just how weak and undeserving to be in the Big 12 they are in this game" Huh? 3 overtimes and catching up 10 points in 60 seconds? Starting the third and fourth strings? Right now TCU is the definition of depth - what other FBS team could lose the equivalent of the entire starting offense AND defense and still be 5-2? Ummm, no one comes to mind. TCU started 16 freshman this year. And yet we were "weak"? Riiiiiggghhht. Okey doky. That tech fan statement speaks (or rather babbles) for itself. Another one that I found simply flabbergasting was the Bleacherreport (my old stomping grounds) commenter that said that this game "was proof that Tech will be playing in Miami this January". I can only assume that he means they will be beachcombing after they follow last year's example and lose the rest of this season's games and play Permian High School in the Nosepicker's National Appreciation Bowl and Craig James Hooker Control Convention in Missoula, because I am just positive that he could not have been referring to the "national championship" (aka, the SEC playing with itself) game in January. Texas Gumnut University has clearly lost it even more completely than when we were in the Southwest Conference (a moment of silence please) with these, err, umm, people. I am thankful that we were not playing them in Lubbuck, as they would have destroyed their home field and torn down the brand new goalposts (installed after they tore the old ones down last week) again. What is it that possesses tech gumnuts to rush the field and destroy it anytime they beat anyone? Well, up until this season it just didn't happen all that often, I guess.
I have arrived back at what I knew when I was a little kid throwing snow balls in the Student Center horseshoe drive, a teenager driving to high school at Paschal High School and when I was attending graduate school overlooking University Drive. Texas Tech fans are clearly - still - out of their individual and collective fricking minds and have no relationship with reality what. so. ever. They think class is something you skip to drink beer, not attend and learn from, and possess for life, to help define your values, life and actions. It is nice to know that some things never change, and that tech still sucks rocks through a power vacuum and thinks that guys running around on a horse at night wearing a mask "raiding" is a good thing. There are some tech fans who are decent, nice, wonderful people. Then there are the others. Maybe one day the voices of the former will outscreech the voices of the latter - until then, tech fans will continue to make tech look like a gooberfest of gumnutters.

I also want to be the first person to get this on the record (and what better place to do so than here at SpitBlood). All of the Kirk Herbsreits and Coach Corsos of the world (although they did both pick TCU over Tech, believe it or not) seem to have not grasped the future significance of their current criticism that "TCU is too young" to compete effectively. I want to be the first to congratulate the Frogs on winning it all in 2014 or 2015. This "young" team that managed to stay ranked through the first half of the season playing not only more freshman than any other FBS team, but also playing the third and fourth slots on many of the positional depth charts will be good this year (I still think they beat the teasips and maybe - if any team does - K-State). They will be monsters in a year or two as they gel. This season has been, to put it mildly, bizarre. In a normal year, when the Frogs keep the starters and these "kids" have grown and matured a bit, watch out! TCU will simply be unstoppable. These freshman will be around for a while - that is a future to look forward to!

Next week - TCU 42, Oklahoma State Cowboys 21.

saying that line about us being weak only insults their own team. if that's the case they should focus more on how they got out gained by 125+ yards total offense, needed three turnovers, an onside kick and three overtimes to beat a mid-major.

David Persons said...

I agree Tanner, but this is Tech. Logic doesn't usually enter into it.

Tanner said...

oh yeah that's right i forgot. sometimes i'm such a red raider

I was in one of the higher-up sections and I heard that Tech fans were pouring battery acid on white women and pulling out their penises. I happened to come across a swinging penis myself and was like.."Hey, put your penis back in your pants!" Then the Tech fan responded with some sort of mumbling which I assumed was the language they speak up there because I heard they are all mentally retarded. I just couldn't believe these crazy Tech fans. My Grandson is about to graduate from high school and I'm scared because based on his SAT score the only options he has are Texas Tech or the Texas State Prison system, so I'm really torn at this point. But anyway, I am excited that TCU is such a great place and I just wanted to let all of you TCU kids know that if you ever want any free cookies you can come by my house. I bake them everyday and they are a real treat. I live right near campus near Bluebonnet Hills (Boyd and Hilltop). I leave them on the front porch every morning and you can just come by on your way to school and pick one up. Go TCU!

haha what? ^

You horney toads should be less concerned about making excuses regarding why you are not clutch at home and more concerned about how you are going to win another conference game. You are 2-2 through what was "supposed" to be the easy part of your conference schedule. Welcome to life in a real conference.

BuckNasty said...

"welcome to life in a real conference"
Ha, you beat our JV team by 3 pts. fucking tool.

TheFortunateTexan said...

Bitterness is a tough thing to deal with. Winning is typically the solution - especially at home.

Obey the Frog said...

Most people at this point acknowledge that TCU will be a very good team with this freshman squad works out the kinks, especially given the fact that they put up a fight against Tech. However, it never fails that an absolute tool/troll will show their ugly heads. You still ignore the fact the fact that TCU's unexperienced team was beat by a mere three points by an experienced Tech team. TCU played an overall better game with one big thing that hurt: turnover (likely the result of an unexperienced team). I guarantee you eat your words in the coming years.

TheFortunateTexan said...

Oh you'll get your opportunities....that is the only guarantee in this league.

Teabaggin TCU said...

You beat SMU by 8!

SnK said...

You must not have seen one minute of that SMU monsoon.

Teabaggin TCU said...

Actually yes I did. There is no doubt TCU is going to be very good in the next couple years. I am just saying this is the BIG 12 and there are always very good teams. And playing bad 1 week can cost you dearly. Ask Oklahoma State.

SnK said...

Props to you then. That game was pretty unwatchable.

Spinny said...

We have some pretty terrible fans, but who doesnt? I never like the idea of judging an entire fanbase based of the actions of a few, but to each his own.

And you must have been looking at personal blogs and comments when you saw that this was a great win and we would go to Miami. That is outrageous and laughable. Most I have talked realized that we have work to do and that TCU is a great team. Mad props to your team, and we'll see you in Lubbock next year! (or not, ya know since it sucks ha)
