TRASH TALK: Texas Christian University

There’s only room for one purple school in this conference.

Yet people give us crap over Willie.

Hey, TCU! You’re ranked No. 6 in the AP Poll this week! That’s great! But we still hate you. Get rid of your purple uniforms. They were just fine when you wandering in the wilderness of the WAC, Conference-USA, and Mountain West. But K-State is a founding member of the Big 12 and the only team to rightfully wear purple in the conference. I’m pretty sure that’s in the bylaws somewhere.

The Big 12 never should have invited TCU in the first place. We could have had Louisville, with their outstanding football and basketball programs and brilliant scandals. We could have avoided all of the talk about the health of the Big 12 by deflecting attention to Louisville’s scandals and Big Papa. But noooooo, we had to add another team from Texas.

You would think a university could at least get the name of its own mascot right, but TCU isn’t big on wildlife biology apparently. Here’s a hint: if it is a land-based quadruped with scales, it’s probably a reptile, not an amphibian. Horned lizard. Not horned frog.

With their team undefeated and Kenny Hill having a 69.0 completion percentage — which is nice — TCU fans might be looking ahead to a possible playoff spot. One problem with that: your quarterback is Kenny Hill, AKA Kenny Football, except he couldn’t even stick it out at Texas A&M.
