Michigan’s arrogance ahead of Fiesta Bowl gave TCU extra boost in semifinal victory

Bud Clark and Dee Winters each had an interception return for a touchdown against Michigan, which motivated the Frogs throughout the week with what they said about the TCU defense (Frogs Today/Melissa Triebwasser).

GLENDALE, Ariz. — TCU is in the Big 12 Conference.

The Horned Frogs want to make sure Michigan now knows that.

One Wolverines defender, Junior Colson, made the mistake of, while answering a question from a Frogs Today reporter (me), not being 100 percent sure of the conference TCU plays in.

In fairness, maybe Colson is very familiar with the Frogs’ vagabond history of hopping from conference to conference after the Southwest Conference kicked them to the curb nearly 30 years ago.

Colson, by the way, is a terrific story. He was orphaned as a boy in Haiti, adopted as an 8-year-old, and blossomed into to a freshman All-American last season and a second-team Big Ten linebacker this season.

But his season is over, and he unwittingly had a part in the No. 2 Wolverines’ loss Saturday afternoon to the No. 3 Frogs in the Fiesta Bowl.
