Setting records and getting better, the Frogs started the 2017 home stretch with a roar against Kansas.

The Other Manhattan

Happy College Football Friday, everyone. It’s mid-October and we’re right in the thick of college football season. If TCU football was a race horse, the Kansas State game marks the back stretch – much done, but still a long way to go. The key is to stay ahead of the pack, not miss-step and get

The Stretch Run Starts, Plus a Visit from ESPN

The stretch run for the Frogs starts tomorrow with No. 23 West Virginia – the Frogs will play eight games in a row. Tomorrow’s TCU-WVU matchup has become the center of the nation’s football attention. Two explosive offenses that both average nearly 500 yards per game and tons of speed on both sides. Add to

Tribute to a Legend: Tom Petty

It’s been a tough news week for sure. Having spent a lot of time in Las Vegas during TCU’s stay in the Mountain West Conference (some years we would travel there five times), I knew exactly where Sunday night’s mass shooting had taken place. My heart goes out to the families of all those killed

A Time to Heal

Just like that we’re four games into the season and what a month it’s been. 4-0 and more fun to come. But this is a time to heal. TCU has a chance to go into Coach Gary Patterson’s Paint & Body to get a tune up and a few dents fixed during the off week.

Frogs Will Have to Cowboy Up

Game four brings us to Stillwater and a spotlight matchup with the Oklahoma Aggies. That’s what they used to be called before they changed the name from OAMC to Oklahoma State and took Cowboys as their mascot. Lewis Field, as it was known until they changed it to Boone Pickens Stadium in 2003, has not

Frogs Look for First Win at OSU Since 1991

The SMU game has come and gone. Here’s what I believe we learned: TCU has a lot of team speed. Extreme speed. On both sides of the ball. The TCU offensive line is getting better every game, especially in the run game. Very physical. I like that. The Frogs need to find a way to
