TCU Round Up: Rose Bowl Champions Edition

Looks like a TCU booster with more money than he knows what to do with had some fun at the expense of Ohio State President Gordon Gee, kudos to you sir, whoever you are.

Residents in Columbus, Ohio may have noticed some billboards around town that appear strangely out of place. They read, "Congratulations to TCU for their BCS Rose Bowl Victory."  Signed, "Little Sisters of the Poor."

TCU is hosting an on-campus party Sunday at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum to celebrate the football teams Rose Bowl victory.

Texas Christian University will celebrate the Horned Frogs' Rose Bowl victory with a public gathering Jan. 16 on campus, the university said Wednesday.  Scott Kull, an assistant athletic director planning the event, said the public is invited to the free event, which will take place at 4 p.m. at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum. The doors will open at 2:30 p.m. with concessions and merchandise available, Kull said. An event program is a work in progress, though coach Gary Patterson, athletic director Chris Del Conte, Mayor Mike Moncrief and some players are expected to speak.

It's no ticker-tape parade but it will do, be there and send our seniors out they way they deserve to be.
Blue-chip defensive end Greg Townsend Jr. announced his commitment to USC over the Frogs in the UA All-Star game on Wednesday. 
Rather than head to his father's alma mater of TCU, defensive end Greg Townsend Jr. (Beverly Hills, Calif./Beverly Hills) will stay close to home and attend USC. "It was a tough decision but my family and I feels like this is the place for me to be," Townsend said. "

As good as this kid would have looked in purple it's hard to blame him wanting to stay close to home and while close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades when it comes to recruiting just being in the final two of a player like this is quite impressive for the Frogs and a sign of things to come in 2012.

Daniel Tosh of Tosh.0 took a shot at TCU in a promo video.  My friends all tell me this guy is hilarious but there is nothing I abhor more than the spread of ignorant hate in the world of college football so I will officially be boycotting this clown.  Long live Joel McHale!

You know it is officially the offseason for TCU football when the coaching rumors begin.  Right now Gary Patterson is being rumored as a "dark horse" for the Michigan job and co-offensive coordinator Justin Fuente is listed as a candidate to be the OC at Clemson.  My message to the paranoid fans is don't sweat the rumors, this is part of what comes with having a successful program.  I thought that Patterson's words about TCU after the game were telling, "It's been my life here the past 13 years, we started with nothing and now we have everything."  I am paraphrasing here but you get my point.

Lastly according to Brian Estridge, the voice of the Horned Frogs, Tommy Tuberville and Texas Tech are weasingly out of their game at TCU in 2011 and plan to buy it out.  What a bunch of wussies.

Is there a Texas Big 12 school that TCU has on the schedule or are they all ducking them?

Good question. Baylor is on the schedule for next year, there was another but it looks like they are going to buy it out. Oklahoma is back on in a couple of years.
