Video: Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby Says He Would Have Put TCU Into The Playoff Over Baylor

College Football: Who is the fourth playoff team?

From the fans’ viewpoint, it had to be done.  The BCS solved nothing at the end of the day; it soon became evident that the BCS would be a stepping stone to a college football playoff.  So, as fans, we get a four team playoff with two semi-finals pitting 1 vs. 4 and 2 vs. 3.  This will settle everything, right?  Through the course of a regular season, four teams will clearly...

Should TCU Get Style Points For Beating Up a Crappy Team Iowa State Team?

With a spot in the first College Football Playoffs on the line the TCU Horned Frogs had an easy one on tap Saturday with Iowa State.

TCU RB Aaron Green On Why Horned Frogs Should Make CFB Playoff: “Because We’re The Best”

When arguing for TCU to earn a spot in the inaugural College Football Playoff, you could talk about how the Horned Frogs are 11-1, have won seven straight games and possess one of the country’s top-three offenses and top-20 defenses.  Or, you could take a simpler approach, the approach taken by TCU running back Aaron Green following his team’s blowout victory against Iowa State...

Gary Patterson Makes Classy Point About UAB When Asked About Possibility Of Missing Playoff

How would TCU head coach Gary Patterson react if his Horned Frogs got left out of the College Football Playoff after an often-dominant 11-1 regular season? Well, it stands to reason that the fiery coach wouldn’t be happy, but when asked about that scenario following TCU’s 55-3 season finale win Patterson kept some perspective.  Would Patterson be mad if they get left out? “I...
