..., well, technically the Theorem doesn't say anything about TCU. But applying it (I think) to this poll of PhilSteele.com readers, I think the verdict is that TCU is going to get 5 or 6 wins in conference play in 2012. (Those scalps: Kansas, Iowa State, Baylor, Texas Tech, Kansas State, and maybe Oklahoma State.)
Early voting favors West Virginia, Texas, and Oklahoma over TCU, by wide margins.
Would 5-3 in the Big12 next year be a success for TCU?
Yep; that's an Insight Bowl kind of year, and good enough for me. (38 votes)
Meh; only if TCU wins 7 or 8 in conference next year. (52 votes)
Nope; I'm not happy unless the Frogs are in the hunt for the title. (100 votes)
What? Is TCU not in the Big East this year? (8 votes)
