Just how dominant was TCU's performance against No. 5 Utah, in a place where the Utes had won 21 straight? As Horned Frogs coach Gary Patterson tap-danced around BCS-related questions from a dozen media members, just a few steps outside the TCU locker room a Utah assistant coach approached. The assistant thanked Patterson for not really embarrassing the Utes.
"You guys could've scored a hundred on us today," he said in a tone drenched with awe.
