A Blogging Break from Heidi

Sorry to all the Heidi-fanatics out there, but I had to take at least one blog entry to give some props to my TCU Horned Frogs.  The Associated Press has TCU with a final season ranking of #7 - their second top 10 finish in the past 4 years and their highest season-ending ranking since 1959.   Their only losses this season were to #5 OU and #2 Utah.  Not bad, Frogs.  Not bad.  Our only regret is losing to Utah and not having the chance ourselves to beat the snot out of Nick Saban and his Crimson Tide ourselves.  

I'd also like to mention that there are 2 teams from the Mountain West Conference who finished in the Top 10 this year (3 teams finished in the top 25)- and Boise State (WAC) finished #11.  If all the controversy surrounding Utah being a legit #1 team as the country's only undefeated team this season - then the fact that non-BCS conferences are starting to beat teams from the SEC (of all conferences) - should be ammo enough to get another system in the works for these players who deserve to play in the championship games.   

I'm also glad to see that TCU's coach, Gary Patterson, won't be going anywhere until at least 2014.  He's led the Horned Frogs to four 11-win seasons in the past six years - not to mention the fact that TCU's defense is regularly in the top 10 in the country.  I hope he continues to deliver like he has since Franchione left!  

Go Frogs!
