Ah, Jake.  'Tis the beauty of the Internet.  You can change things and hope nobody notices.  Be it a spelling or the facts of a story.  Hopefully, no one notices.  I seem to recall another 'journalist' who did the same thing recently.  The name slips my mind at the moment . . .

Regardless, Texas has lots of wonderful desserts to offer.

I prefer the Baked Alaska.

Anybody that thinks TCU deserved to be in over Ohio State in ‘14 just never looked at the facts. Ohio State had a tougher strength of schedule. Ohio State had more wins against ranked opponents. Ohio State actually won their conference. Literally every metric the committee uses to rank teams favored Ohio State.

HS
JohnnyKozmo's picture

Exactly in reference to schedule strength...and it points to Patterson’s scheduling philosophy...play some big boys so if/when you lose a game, you’ve got something to fall back on.  Too hard to go undefeated.  They’ve got no one to blame but Patterson and the Ad if they continue to be left out with a weak schedule.

2014 TCU’s lone loss was a nail biter to Baylor, 61-58.

Please tell me a fact?  What was Ohio States one loss , in the Shoe as well?

Name an Ohio State player better than LaDanian Tomlinson . Just one.

Did you seriously just come here and ask fans of the school who is proud to have CFB's only two-time Heiman winner to name "just one player" better than LT? I can name about 7, but the above reference is pretty obvious. I think you may have had too much purple drank.

Ok first of are you really jamming on the Horned Frog as a Buckeye? One is a nut and the other is a toad with horns that shoots blood out its eyes to deter preditors.
As for 2014, I'll put it this way. Ohio State deserves the title but you didn't deserve to get in. Yes you had a better strength of schedule AFTER the season by 3 slots after you got to play an extra game against a higher rated opponent due to getting in.
As for the Baylor ranking, there are 2 points. Baylor beat TCU by 3 at home early in the season. No one in their right mind outside of Waco believed Baylor was the better team at the end of the season. Baylor was ranked 3 at that time. Last time I checked VA Tech wasn't ranked when they beat you at home. My point was proven on Bowl weekend when the Frogs smoked the only other team to beat Bama that year by 38pts. Baylor lost to Mich St.

The Bucks didn't GET to play an extra game, troll.  That's the way the conference is designed.  Blame it on your conference.  History shows Ohio State not only deserved to get in, but they went on to beat the crap out of three Heisman level players and their teams!  TCU will learn that this particular butthurt you express so eloquently will only get more sore after tomorrow.  Enjoy the night.  Because tomorrow night you will be weeping again.

I thought Baylor was a better team that year then TCU. Baylor was beating the breaks off that MSU team and had a second half meltdown on defense.  You beat Kansas by 4 and WVU by 1 that year. Let’s not pretend TCU was a world beater that got screwed. You had the same amount of losses as OSU, with a worse schedule and not as impressive wins. TCU is good, well coached good athletes. So is TOSU should make for a good game.

"...Same amount of losses as OSU, with a worse schedule and not as impressive wins." 

^^^^^^^^ That's it, right there. It's pretty simple. It's all mental gymnastics beyond that. There's no "controversy". It's just a bunch of people who's team finished in 6th place trying to argue with everyone that they lose in better fashion. It's not really their fault. They don't know any better. I think that's part of the frustration... Could be all the purple... I don't know. But they beat Wisconsin back in 2010, and they won their bowl game in 2014 so... They're Tier 1 now or something. 

Holy shit, I am getting my ass kicked on this sudoku puzzle right now..

TCU was losing by 10 late in the second half to a horrible Kansas team, a team that was one of the worst in Power 5. That game was later in the season. SOS? Lol TCU and Baylor played Samford and Northwestern State in 2014 for their early OOC games. Perhaps if they wouldn’t have scheduled cupcake FCS programs they’d have more of an argument and you wouldn’t be here saying things hoping they’d stick. 

Personally, I’m glad both got left out the way they did.   Briles for obvious reasons and your old AD Del Conte was and still is an insufferable arrogant prick for the BS he talked when OSU wouldn’t play at AG Carter for a home and home. Funny he’s at Texas now and they’re doing so great...

If OSU had lostthe first game of the playoff I could POSSIBLY understand their frustration. However, they were CLEARLY the best team in the country that year - proven by the dismantling of Alabama (smiled when I typed that) and Oregon. So eat shit TCU you're about to get rolled tomorrow.

Horned Frogs/Lizards also shoot blood out of their eyes when defending themselves, a better defensive strategy than most of the Big 12.

Horned Frogs are satanic. When it’s raining frogs outside, that’s a sign that your village done f’d up too many times. When the raining frogs are wearing horns, then the fate of your soul has been contracted out to beezlebub. Kiss the frogs and your a— goodbye.

In their lone 2014 loss, they let a team put up 61 fucking points. SIXTY-ONE! Playoff teams don't give up 61. FSU was getting tackled by ghosts (should be illegal) and literally giving the ball away against Oregon and didn't give up 61. Every sentence in this statement says 61 somewhere.

Arrogance will be ohio st's downfall.

TCU has great players in the NFL, a great history, top defense every year, and no cover-up issues with the admin.

The top QB award is named after a TCU QB (Davey Obrien award). Yesterday there were at least a hundred buckeyes getting their pics with the Horned Frog statue on our campus. Our little tiny school in little Ol' Ft Worth with 65% female students are going to show you'all (yes, I said You'all) what happens when you play a Big12 program.  Remember last year at your house?

This is going to be a great game.  Go Frogs!

I will admit we Buckeye fans are arrogant.  We are absolutely spoiled by having one of the top 3 elite college football programs over the last several years.  We are used to having probably the most successful programs over the last century, with wins not padded by defeating high school programs. We have a lot of reasons for our arrogance. 

Don't confuse us fans with our team.  They are hungry and angry and talented and they aren’t overlooking your spiky reptiles.

Since Patterson only wanted to lose to us once instead of twice, and won't take it like a man, let's beat them twice as bad in one game- double the spread+.  Bosa has played about 4 quarters of football to get Heisman mention stats; Haskins has played about 5 to get his numbers. Let's see what TCU does when we go a full game with first string at them.... I'd say they lose by 30-40.  Be good for Buckeye recruiting; Shut TCU up, like forever; boost our two Heisman candidates?  Sounds like a "win-win" to me- get it, Horny Toads?

As far as 2014 - the phrase "Physician, heal thyself!"

It was only after the sting of 2014 did the Big 12 institute a championship game. Sucks to be you.

But here is the real reason that Ohio State was selected - they were simply a better team with a bigger fan base that travels phenomenally - i.e. they outspend any of the who was that again? oh yeah, the Big 12.

Life is hard sometimes, but it is what it is. TCU couldn't deliver, the Buckeyes did. And the lizards will be reminded of that tonight.

Even if Ohio State loses to Wisconsin, Baylor goes to the 2014 CFP, not TCU. 

A cogent argument does not exist to pick TCU over Baylor that year.  It isn’t debatable.

Ironically, had TCU played a real team OOC and won convincingly, that would have been their only hope to stay ahead of the Baylor team with the same record that won the head to head game.

HS
Buckeyeincleveburg's picture

To your last point, Patterson’s unwillingness to have a home and home with Ohio State illustrates they are afraid to take risks to earn a trip to the CFP.  Then and now.

In my experience, TCU folks are probably still more annoyed by "Little Sisters of the Poor" than they are about 2014, even though 2014 is more recent. But yeah, their fans (including some friends of mine) have been chatty all week and it's going to be fun to show them "be careful what you wish for."

Anyway, I've always enjoyed Fort Worth and look forward to parading my Buckeye gear around town sometime in the near future.

TCU was the best team in College Football that year.  Nothing against OSU, that are the 2014 champions, but no #3 seed gets leap-frogged like that without some chicanery.  TCU was cozened by powerful forces beyond their contol.
