TCU surprises #5 Kansas; 2 losses in a row rare for Jayhawks

The Kansas Jayhawks lost two games in a row and in the same week. That is a rarity.

Last weekend, the Jayhawks lost to Oklahoma State.

Their latest loss was to lowly TCU, 62-55 on Wednesday night.

This is the first losing streak in more than seven years. Kansas had played 264 games in a row since January 2006 without consecutive losses, which is the longest active streak in NCAA Division I Basketball.

TCU never trailed in the game and were led by Garlon Green with 20 points.

The Horned Frogs improved to 10-12, 1-8 in the Big 12, while Kansas slips to 19-3, 7-2.

Texas Christian University has officially announced that it will be joining the Big 12 Conference in 2012.

The decision means that TCU’s move will become effective July 1 next year and the Horned Frogs athletic teams will participate in the conference in all sports in the 2012-2013 season.

TCU fills the departure of Texas A&M who left in September announcing it’s decision to join the Southeastern Conference.

TCU’s decision to leave the Big East, will cost the university some exit money, yet to be determined.

compiled from TCU & Cincinnati Bengals news

The Cincinnati Bengals have listened to Carson Palmer saying during the off-season that he will never play for the Bengals again. They can trade him or he’ll retire. The team seems to care less.

The Bengals did what they had to do in the NFL draft by selecting TCU quarterback Andy Dalton in the second round to replace their franchise quarterback.

New offensive coordiantor Jay Gruden says that he’ll get Dalton up-to-speed quickly as he’ll be given the chance to start when pre-season camp begins.

The 6’2, 215 pound Dalton, taken with the 35th overall pick, is a proven winner with the leadership skills and intangibles to be a very effective starting quarterback. His arm strength is slightly above average and the awareness and anticipation to be an efficient passer.

Dalton won 41 games at Texas Christian University, passing the legendary quarterback Sammy Baugh on the school’s all-time list. In 2010, he completed 194 0f 293 passes for 2,638 yards and 26 touchdowns as a senior. He led the Horned Frogs to a Rose Bowl win over Wisconsin, 21-19 on January 1, 2011. TCU was the Mountain West Conference champions with an overall record of 13-0.

The TCU football program will be joining a conference that will give them an automatic bid to any BCS Bowl Game.

The Horned Frogs will be moving to the Big East Conference in 2012. They won’t have to be in any controversies of whether they belong in a BCS bowl or not. The mission is simple, win your league and they’ll be guaranteed a spot in the upper-echelon bowl games.

The Big East Conference currently has eight football teams and has one of six automatic BCS bids.

Currently, TCU is third in the Bowl Championship Series standings, the highest ranking for any non-automatic qualifying team. They’re in line for a chance to play for the national championship if Auburn or Oregon loses this weekend. The Frogs are probably looking at playing in the Rose Bowl if Auburn or Oregon both win.

TCU’s departure adds more shuffling for the Mountain West Conference. Boise State is leaving in 2011, Utah is bolting and BYU is going independent. But they’ll be picking up Fresno State and Nevada in 2012.

The Horned Frogs have won 25 straight regular-season games, and 38 of 41 overall. Their only losses in that span have been at Oklahoma and Utah and in the Fiesta Bowl to Boise State.

With TCU moving all of its sports programs to the Big East, the league gets even more crowded with a 17-team basketball league which will probably be split in divisions.

The Big East is the fourth conference for since the Southwest Conference split up after 1995. The decided against joining the Big 12 and joined the Western Athletic Conference instead. They’ve also been part of the Conference USA.
