Beating Texas was spectacular, and no one will denigrate the awesome performance of the Frogs to stomp on the Horns in Austin- it wouldn't surprise me if there's a DVD of it next year- but if you're going to be a contender for Big 12 championships you have to beat OU. Missouri had some great seasons in the Big 12 with Chase Daniel, didn't they? #1 in the nation, on the cusp of a national championship, yet they ended up playing in the Cotton Bowl. Why? Because they couldn't beat OU. Vince Young- once in a generation talent, almost unstoppable on the ground and dangerous through the air, back to back Rose Bowl winner. Only won one Big 12 championship. Why? He went 1-2 against OU. Texas Tech, in its best season ever, goes 11-1 and beats a phenomenal Texas team but still ends up in the Cotton Bowl. Why? They got blown out by OU.
Big seasons come and go for the other teams in the Big 12, but the difference between a good season and a championship level one comes to one simple factor: Did you beat OU? If TCU is going to have success in the Big 12 it will come down to this simple factor as well, so today is our first opportunity to make a statement to the big dog of the Big 12. Given the tribulations that TCU has face this season most fans will call it a success no matter what happens in this game, but the one way to end debate about whether TCU's Big 12 debut was a success or not is to be able to answer that question with yes. Let's settle the debate. Let's beat the hell out of them.

Go Frogs!
