Do Frogs want Boise (again)?
By Jeff Caplan
The final minutes are ticking down for TCU to find out who it will play in its first BCS bowl game.
At TCU's bowl selection watching party, word is spreading the Frogs could play Boise State, a fellow BCS-buster that TCU beat last season in the Poinsettia Bowl.
"Boise is a good team, undefeated team, has proven themselves over the years, but in my opinion I wouldn’t want to play Boise State again," TCU linebacker Daryl Washington said as he signed autographs for fans that lined up 100 yards deep on the turf inside TCU's indoor practice facility prior to the selection show. "We beat them last year, it was a great game, 17-16. I wouldn’t mind it being a rematch, but I would like to play Florida or Cincinnati in that case."
Washington had nothing but compliments for the Boise program, after all they're in the same fight for recognition as a college football powerhouse despite their distinction of playing in a non-BCS conference.
Still, Washington said he harbors hopes of playing Florida in the Sugar Bowl. Boise State would probably say the same.
