TCU News: Big XII Title Game Coming?

New, 35 comments

The Big XII will be able to have a title game, Bram might be getting a movie, and TCU Football makes SI's Top 25 games of the year... three times!

TCU Football:

NCAA Votes to allow the Big XII to hold a title game

Now that they can, the question becomes, will they?

The change scraps the requirement that leagues have 12 members and play in two divisions in order to hold a title game. The new rule lets a smaller league play a title game pitting its top two teams, provided it plays a round-robin regular season schedule as the Big 12 does now.

2 simple reasons the Big 12 shouldn't add a title game

Just because they can, doesn't mean they should. Can you imagine a Bedlam rematch one week later? Yuck.

Rematches are so far from college football's character, this deserves two spots on the list. Alabama getting a rematch with LSU was the final BCS straw, because this is not a rematch sport. You play your rival once, and someone is sad about it for 365 days. You do not play a damn divisional series. One bad bounce determines the course of history and enshrines someone's name on the rivalry Wikipedia forever.

Ranking the 25 best games of the College Football season

The Frogs place two in the top ten, including the Tip Six and the Alamo to Remember.

Injuries would eventually derail TCU’s campaign for the College Football Playoff, but the Horned Frogs looked doomed in an early-season game against Texas Tech… until a miracle struck.

Duck's Alamo nightmare could become Disney movie

Bram Kohlhausen became a household name less than two weeks ago; is Hollywood star next?

"Disney approached us about a movie," TCU sports information director Mark Cohen wrote by email. "Bram's focus this spring is on his May graduation. After he has his degree in hand, we'll revisit the opportunity to see if it's a fit."

Talk about a plot twist.

TCU Football Recruiting:

JUCO linebacker Horton won't enroll for the spring semester

The #1 ranked player at his position, Horton would fill a big need at the position for TCU, assuming he makes it to campus this summer. The good news is, all other early-enrollees are on campus and in classes.

The TCU source who spoke on condition of anonymity said no reason has been provided for Horton not making it to campus. He is a 6-foot, 225-pound linebacker who played at Highland (Kan.) Community College last season, ranked No. 1 at his position among junior college players by 247Sports.

Monday was the first day of classes at TCU.

TCU, OSU top contenders for Parkway's Wudtee

After decommitting from Lousiana Tech, the QB has received a flurry of offers. TCU hopes he will look to join former teammate, and early-enrollee Artavious Lynn on campus this summer.

Simmons said Wudtee’s film speaks for itself after he threw for 3,466 and 34 touchdowns to lead Parkway to a Class 5A semifinal appearance and earn a spot on The Times’ All-City first team. A strong arm and impressive frame make the 6-foot-4, 205-pound senior a potential pro prospect with tremendous upside.

TCU Basketball:

Trent Johnson's first prized recruit says 'results will come'

Karviar Shephard still believes in the process.

"The results will come," Shepherd said Wednesday night after one of the Horned Frogs’ worst losses of the season, 82-54 at Baylor. "I’m confident in my coaches and confident in my team. You don’t really worry about the results if you’re working hard and doing the things Coach wants us to do. The results will come."

TCU romps, Medley moves up in the record books

Zahna Medley is a bona-fide star for the Frogs, as she continues to rewrite the record books for Reagna Pebley and women's basketball.

As TCU set a Big 12 milestone, defeating Texas Tech by the Horned Frogs’ biggest margin since joining the conference, 69-48, senior guard Zahna Medley continued to move up the ranks as one of TCU’s best all-time offensive players.

Wednesday, Medley had eight assists, moving into third place all time in career assists, passing Jill Sutton’s 445.
