When We Last Left Off...


TCU is the new and improved Aggie.

The Series

TCU leads the all-time series 4-1 with the only loss coming in their Big XII opener against the Cyclones in 2012.  My how the mighty average have fallen.

Match Ups


Seriously, if TCU doesn't score 60 in this game and win by at least 40 then something went terribly wrong for the Horned Frogs.  Or Gary Patterson decided to have mercy on Paul Rhoads and his poor team of mathletes.

If I'm Rhoads this is what I'm doing in the hotel on Friday night:

And then hitchhiking my way back to somewhere that isn't in Texas, or even Ames.

Tobias is Boykin, and Batman and Robin are Iowa State's defense:

Ok, I'm done, I got shit to do.

Special Teams

Iowa State could win this if Netten had the leg of Mason Crosby and they kicked every time they reached the 50.

WRNL Beer Pick of the Week

Hell, I don't even want to pick this.  Since no one will want to talk about the actual game then let's turn the comments in to another beer recommendation thread.

Final Analysis

To the Cyclone program: Thanks for the long season, assholes.

To our commenters and community: Thanks for the long season, assholes.

It's been a blessing chore blessing to write for you guys this year.  Sorry I didn't keep it interesting in November, but something something source material something something.

TCU Enough to Make the Playoff

Iowa State Enough to Make Us Question Everything, Again
