Postgame Analysis- Baylor 61, TCU 58

New, 87 comments

Things looked great for the Frogs in a game they didn't trail, but a combination of a few generous calls, questionable decisions by the TCU OCs and a defensive collapse by the frogs give Baylor the win.

Ugh.
Ugh.

A word to those who might consider trolling a worthy pursuit- The ban hammer will be deployed very quickly tonight, no warnings.

HawkeyedFrog: I hate talking about officiating, so I'll get it out of the way early.  If there was ever a game that showed that the entire Big 12 officiating crew needs to be set on fire, this was it.  Terrible calls on both sides of the ball, but in the clutch things went very well for the home team- I'll leave it at that.

Man, TCU looked really good until about twelve minutes left in the game, going up three touchdowns and making some of the fans start to head for the exits.  Then around that time, the frogs decided that the game was over and took their foot off of the throat of the Bears and they paid for it time and time again after that.  The offensive playcalling stagnated, with the OCs repeatedly calling fades that led to very quick possessions by the Frogs, instead of running the ball and taking enough time off the clock to put pressure on the bears.  The defense was hit and miss throughout the game, but it was a lot more miss than hit in the fourth quarter, as the Bears were able to both run and pass on the Frogs when it mattered late.  It's going to take a long time for me to realize that we actually lost this game, so I'm going to call it there.  What we want for this season is still in play- a nice bowl game and the Big 12 championship, but our fate is now out of our hands- and there's no time to feel sorry for ourselves with OSU coming in next week.

Of all the teams to choke to though, ugh.

If they can stop vomiting up bile or pull themselves away from their alcoholic beverage of choice, the rest of the FoW crew will drop by and share their thoughts on this one.  If you're the masochistic type, feel free to keep checking.
