College Football Sunday: TCU ready for the big time

After TCU’s dismantling of BYU it will be interesting to see where the Horned Frogs will be in the discussion for the BCS.

Personally, I think the Horned Frogs are one of the best teams in the nation. And before everybody starts sending emails telling me how the Mountain West doesn’t play anybody does anymore remember the beat down that Utah put on Alabama, from the all-mighty SEC, last year in the Sugar Bowl.

TCU can play with anyone in the country. They beat Clemson in Clemson earlier this year and they should run through the Mountain West. Their only tough game left on the schedule is Utah – but Utah isn’t the same team they were a year ago.

If TCU runs the table, and other teams have a loss, then they should play for the National Championship.

The Horned Frogs could give Florida or Alabama from the all-mighty SEC a run for its money.

The SEC prides itself on being the class of the college football world. If that’s the case why is their non-conference schedule full of Division 1-AA teams?

Alabama didn’t look so hot against Utah last year.

But, maybe, that’s the perception the SEC wants. Our conference is so tough that we have to play cupcakes in the beginning of the year.

How about next year Florida, Mississippi and a few others schedule some games that matter in September. Schedule a TCU, BYU or Boise State so we can really see how good you are.

More west talk: It might be Mountain West day here at College Football Sunday. We talked about Utah not being as good as last year, but they are still winning.

The four best teams in the Mountain West are TCU, BYU, Utah and Air Force.

Air Force is a tough team to play, just ask TCU and Utah, because of the dreaded triple option attack. Their triple option is a little different just because they are able to throw the ball more.

Army and Navy run 90 percent of the time out of the option, just ask Wake Forest as Navy ran the ball 64 times and didn’t attempt a pass, where the Falcons are more diverse.

The Falcons gave Utah fits and should have won that game. They also gave TCU fits and made the Horned Frogs battle till the end for that win.

Tide rolling along: Is Alabama the best team in the country?

They didn’t look like it on Saturday against Tennessee. The Tide looked a little sluggish in their win, but they won. I am not sold on Alabama being the best team in the country.

Right now I don’t know who is as Florida has looked sluggish in their last two wins. I think you could see one of these two teams lose a game before the SEC championship game.

If Georgia can right the ship on defense, then next week’s game against Florida could be a little interesting.
