Jim Donnan The Frogs and Cyclones competed in one of the most intense and competitive games in the bowl season. Congratulations to TCU, reaching an 11-win season isn't easy to do. Jeff Ballard was impressive. The Frogs' gritty QB is an accurate passer and tough runner. Bret Meyer showed a lot of heart bringing the Cyclones back into the game. As with many of the bowl games this year, the yellow flag was thrown often. The officials need to just let them play.
