Best case scenario for TCU in B12 and post-season bowls

http://www.califrognia.com/images/michigan_j_...

I’m certainly not predicting this, but here’s the ideal FROGS outcome once the smoke clears next weekend: obviously TCU must beat OU … then KSU beats UT … and BU beats OSU.

Final Big12 standings: 1. KSU, 2. OU, 3. 3-way tie of TCU-OSU-UT (TCU beat UT, UT beat OSU, OSU beat TCU). KSU is locked into Fiesta Bowl. Most have OU getting an at-large into Sugar, but a 3rd loss (to us) probably knocks them out of that… in which case they get Cotton vs aTm (spoiling the hoped for UT-aTm grudge-match). 3rd-place teams vie in a beauty pageant for B12 #3 Alamo/ #4 BuffaloWildWings/ #5 Holiday bowl committees. [NOTE - remember these B12 bowl tie-ins are picking order by bowl preference; they do NOT have to go by any ranking]

A TCU loss to OU Saturday really muddies up the B12 rankings and likely plummets us down to the B12 #6 Meineke (vs a B10 team).

A win over OU gets us ranked in polls' 20s, then a bowl win gets us to 9-4 and just might squeak us into high teens in final 2012 poll. That will position us nicely for 2013 pre-season polls… which is vital to us improving up to a 10-2 record and competing for B12 title and/or major bowl. I don’t wanna dream past that just yet, but you know I’m thinking of a date with CRYSTAL Gayle and singing Tommy James "CRYSTAL Blue Persuasion". Only the NotreDames of the football world can pull off instant rags-to-riches stories… TCU must do it the hard way (as usual)... step-by-step. Finishing 3rd in B12 our first season here would be pretty darn good!!! That's a step... but it means we HAVE to beat the Sooners come Saturday!
