Improbable Texas Christian University.

Don’t count them out altogether.  For certain going into week  10 of the BCS standings it looks like the Gators ( 1) and Alabama (2) are a shoe-in for the big money bowls.  Yet regardless TCU continues to press ahead, on track to have it’s first undefeated regular season since 1938.  After last weeks beat down of #21 Utah 55-27, coach Patterson and his team is waiting to capitalize on any mistakes made by Florida, Alabama, or Texas.

Only two teams stand between them and perfect season…Wyoming and the hapless New Mexico.  All this from a school that comes from a conference that doesn’t get an automatic bowl game.  So hats off to Coach Gary Patterson and his Horned Frogs for a well played season.

BCS Bowl Talk

Yes, it’s that time to wax poetical or at least talk a lot of trash about how the Bowls games will turn out.  It’s not unusual for fans to become upset but then again I would be doing me job if everybody was happy.

To start off, which of these two teams are likely to be snubbed? Undefeated TCU (6) or Boise State (7)… only one will be  be guaranteed  a spot among the five bowl games that mean anything.

While the Bronco’s don’t have a huge fan base or members in college elite membership they are still matter where it counts…the football field.  So they are my pick for being passed over.  What a shame.

Here is what is likely to happen ( If I can be so bold). The SEC champion will play Texas. Yeah I know…no big surprise there.

Following that bowl bids would got to the champions of the Pac-10 (Oregon), Big Ten (Ohio State), ACC (Georgia Tech) and Big East (Cincinnati). The SEC runner-up would be a shoe-in for a bowl somewhere.

So there…my picks.  Though we still have 4 more weeks to play and perhaps an upset or two.  Who knows?? This is college football after all.
