Sic 'em Bears!!

after 14 years of absconding with big 12 $$, it's about time the bears finally did SOMETHING. Don't get me wrong, we're all happy this little private school is finally standing up to the power schools. But why are you wasting print space on waco?
The greatest private school in America has been making history with no support what so ever, except alums, students, and love from ESPN.
TCU has the best baseball program in Texas, heck in the entire Southwest. Bball still sucks, but getting better. And did you happen to catch one of the best Rose Bowls in recent memory?
Go Frogs! Can't wait to see the new stadium.

The new stadium is going to rock!

Leroy, Leroy, Leroy-

Bitter much?

Welcome back to the Game.

Oh leroy,

The blog was talking about the entire sports season and how Baylor is playing lights out across the board. I don't think tcu has ever had a season where all sports, across the board, have ever done anything like this. Yes yes...we know about your football team...not much else

Easy Leroy, I love your passion for the Frogs, I too share it, but let's put the Baylor hate aside and give them their due. It is one phenomenal year for all their sports. We have received plenty of great coverage over the past few years. Yes, they should have been doing more since joining the Big XII, but our day is coming now that we will be reaping those Big XII benefits. Oh, and we did what no other Big XII baseball team has done this year, beat Baylor, so maybe a Waco regional will be a great matchup if it comes to fruition. Great year Baylor!

Thank you for covering a college sport"s story that is about someplace other than TCU. Not everyone living in Ft Worth went to TCU. There are lots of great schools in Texas and lots of great sports stories.
