Burying a child is tough. Burying a child while protesters say she was killed because God is punishing the U.S. is probably close to impossible.
That would have been the case during the Thursday funeral of 9-year-old Christina Taylor Green, who was killed in the attack on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords last Saturday in Tucson, Ariz. But radio stations in Arizona and Canada offered airtime for Westboro Baptist Church so the church would not picket the funeral, according to a story by the AP.
The No. 3 TCU Horned Frogs secured at least a Rose Bowl berth with their 66-17 win over New Mexico Saturday while also clinching their second consecutive undefeated regular season and Mountain West Conference title.
Coupled with a 34-31 overtime loss by then-No. 4 Boise State to then-No. 19 Nevada Friday night, the Frogs' path to a BCS bowl became clearer without the Broncos threatening to jump TCU (12-0, 8-0 MWC) in the standings.
Current score: 52-17 TCU

Andy Dalton threw thee touchdown passes to get TCU out to a 21-0 lead, but New Mexico forced fumbles in the first and second quarters to keep it manageable.
Dalton was sacked with about 9 minutes left in the second quarter and left the game. As of halftime, he had not returned.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- The No. 3 TCU Horned Frogs clinched their second consecutive undefeated regular season and Mountain West Conference title Saturday with a 66-17 win over New Mexico.
The Frogs (12-0, 8-0 MWC) also clinched an at-large BCS berth in the process, likely securing a spot in the Rose Bowl if No. 1 Oregon or No. 2 Auburn wins out and after No. 4 Boise State lost 34-31 to No. 19 Nevada Friday night.
TCU's perfect season never looked in serious doubt from the start of the game, as the Frogs got off to a 21-0 start.
One of the first memories I have of the year 2007 was celebrating what I thought was the failure and imminent collapse of the Bowl Championship Series. A team from Boise, Idaho, had beaten the University of Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl, 43-42, with what was probably the best play call I've ever seen.
At my high school, after the game, everyone was talking about how great the Boise State Broncos were, and I happily joined in singing the Broncos' praises. Conversations about the team continued when I arrived at TCU, but in a markedly different tone.
As this year's Veterans Day arrives, it's time for the requisite displays of patriotism that accompany it. This is a wonderful thing to see every year, and I love being able to honor those that have fought and died for the United States.
The university has done a great job this year by holding events celebrating Veterans Day both today and in the days leading up to it. It's the most events I can remember being aware of in three years at the university, and it makes me proud to see that we are giving these heroes their due.
