TCU = CWS. Chalk One Up for the Little Guys

Delicious development over the weekend as TCU's baseball team took two of three from Texas in Austin to earn its first ever trip to the College World Series. The Horned Frogs begin play in Omaha, Nebraska Saturday at 1 p.m. against Fresno State.

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"?
