TCU = CWS. Chalk One Up for the Little Guys
TCU has a legit shot because of, if nothing else, pitching ace Matt Purke. The almost-Texas Ranger is 14-0, including a 3-1 victory over the Longhorns last Friday. In a fit of beautiful irony, the cheap-ass Rangers couldn't sign Purke because of owner Tom Hicks. So Purke instead goes to TCU and winds up beating Texas, of which Hicks is a boisterous alum.
Karma, thou art a just bitch.
But considering TCU's football team played in a BCS game and now its baseball team is in the CWS, is it fair to continue considering it one of the "little guys"?
