Lost in all the excitement of yesterday’s Thanksgiving NFL action that featured an overtime caused by a clusterf*ck and the New England Patriots reinforcing their pro-bullying agenda was the day’s lone college action between the No. 18 Texas Longhorns and the TCU Horned Frogs. TCU, of course, has been having a rather lackluster debut season in the Big 12, with a lousy 3-4 conference record heading into the game. But St. Thanksgiving and the turkey angels must have been looking down on the Frogs from their Mayflower in Valhalla – my grades always sucked in school – because TCU defeated Texas 20-13 to move to 7-4 overall on the season.

Anyway, I won’t bore you with any game details, because all you need to know is in that picture above. Is there anything more fun than when a team’s fans dress in costumes and then their team loses? I’m sure the answer to that is yes – Kate Upton topless, free filet mignons, topless Kate Upton serving free filet mignons, among others – but for the sake of right now, I just want to enjoy this.

But don’t worry, Texas fans. I also have a happy picture for you.

See? There’s a little something for everyone in here.

In related names that drive me nuts news: This game featured former Longhorns QB Colt McCoy’s brother Case filling in for the struggling David Ash, while former Longhorn WR Jordan Shipley’s brother Jaxon led Texas in receiving with 6 catches for 80 yards. Colt and Case McCoy. Jordan and Jaxon Shipley. There’s a boy band waiting to happen right here. Somewhere Simon Cowell is drawing up contracts.
