Common sense prevailed Saturday night in Austin, but didn’t prevail for most of the week leading up to the TCU-Texas game with Big 12 title implications and, for the Horned Frogs, possible national title implications.
The Frogs were 7-3 against the Longhorns since joining the Big 12. The Frogs were 9-0 despite, in their words and the words of the College Football Playoff selection committee, not yet having played a complete game.
Texas, a simple look at the standings showed, was a three-loss team. The Longhorns have a freshman quarterback.
TCU, the nation’s fourth-ranked team, did what it was supposed to do in disposing of Texas.
