Rest Up for a Day of Basketball and Football

Before we get started with this weekend’s events, let me pay homage to another TCU Basketball great who we lost this week. Eugene “Goo” Kennedy died early last Tuesday. Kennedy played one memorable season at TCU in 1970-71. He was named TCU’s MVP and the Southwest Conference Player of the Year in helping the Frogs

Horned Frogs Mourn Big Supporters and Look to Saturday’s OSU Game

It’s been a rough week for many of us around TCU. Universities and their communities are built on loyal alumni and supporters — personalities and propellers. Those whose stance or love for their alma mater is never questioned. Such is the case for two great Frogs whose lives we celebrated this week Susan Nix ’69

Country Roads: Horned Frogs Face WVU Mountaineers

Happy Friday the 13th from Morgantown, West Virginia. There’s a joke in there somewhere. I’m not the first to tell you that 2020 has been a wacky year, but here’s one more item to add to that endorsement: As you read this, I sit watching the second round of The 2020 Masters on a Friday

Defense Players Pressure Texas Tech for Win

Happy Veterans Day, everyone. Be sure to thank the veterans you know for their service and sacrifice to our great nation. The Frogs finally got their first home win of the year last Saturday over Texas Tech, 34-18 on a day when the passing game just wasn’t spinning quite right. But not to worry, Max

Saddle Up for a Run Game Against Texas Tech

Happy Friday! It’s the first weekend in November and Texas Tech is coming to town. It just seems right. TCU can build on the success of another road win last week at Baylor, in which the Frogs started hot, delivered some big hits and plays on defense. Frogs flexed their muscle with a run game

Horned Frogs Earn Win at Baylor with Running Game

Well, we made it back from the Brazos unscathed. Well, mostly. A quick trip for a win at Baylor and a stop for some jalapeño-cheddar sausage at Slovacek’s in West, Texas, made it the perfect college football Saturday. Things I liked and need to see more of from the Frogs: A defense that flew around

Baylor Offense Troubles Should be Advantage for Frogs

Happy Friday, everyone! It’s Halloween weekend and the Frogs get to spend it Waco, Texas, a place that has been good, bad and ugly for the Frogs over the years. Since McLane Stadium opened in 2014, strange, and sometimes great, things have happened. Who can forget the crazy 61-58 game in which the Frogs were

A Kansas State of Mind

If there’s anything that last weekend’s TCU win over Texas proved, it’s that football fortunes hang by a thread, and the difference between winning and going home heartbroken can be one play, or even half of a play. College football games these days feature somewhere between 130 and 160 total plays between the two teams.
