TCU celebrates Boise win with a T-shirt

TCU's 36-35 win over Boise State was a huge game this weekend that killed whatever chance Boise State had to play for a national title, and TCU wants you to remember this one forever with a commemorative t-shirt. 

Which, admittedly, may be a bit excessive since it was only a regular season game, but TCU had a bit of a chip on it's shoulder.

That being said, it may have been just a regular season game, but it was also one of the strangest games in terms of backstory that we've seen played in college football recently.

You may remember that this game was originally scheduled to be played at TCU, but after TCU announced that it was leaving for the Big East, the Mountain West moved the game to Boise. Well, as things stood on Saturday, TCU is no longer joining the Big East, but the Big 12 instead, and Boise State? Well, they're a candidate to join the Big East.

Well, it turns out that the Mountain West may have done TCU a favor by moving the game to Boise, because TCU was definitely a motivated team on Saturday and it became the first team to beat Boise State in Bronco Stadium during the regular season since roughly 1874, ending a 35-game home winning streak.

And now TCU fans have something to remember it by.

TCU celebrates Boise win with a T-shirt

Just imagine if there was a 16-team playoff. Conference champ from each of the 11 conferences get an auto bid, and then the top 5 remaining at-large teams in the BCS standings. All seeds determined by the BCS standings. Both TCU and Boise would make it...
 
Here's what it looks like going into week 12:

you missed a wrinkle here-- somebody in Boise had printed up t-shirts saying "WON and DONE," in reference to Boise's (likely) single season in the MWC.   Because everybody thought Boise would come into the MWC, waltze to the title, it seemed appropriate, but a little snotty.

So TCU gets the last laugh-- move the game to Boise?   Gloat about expected dominance?   Give the Broncs four more chances to win it at the end?

Eat it, MWC.   Won and done, indeed.

Go Frogs.

Too bad the "One and Done" slogan already happened against Baylor.  Sic'em!
