TCU Fight: To a New Era

We’ll fight ’em ’til hell freezes over, then we’ll fight ’em on the ice, Fight TCU, FIGHT, FIGHT, FIGHT, Fight ’til blood shoots from our eyes, Fight for the small so the mighty despise, Fearless purple warriors at the gates of the West, Whose will to win will silence the best, Tomlinson, Lilly, Gary and

KU — Who’s Got What?

As we get deeper into November and Saturdays’ Senior Day home finale for this year, the over-arching thought comes to mind as I think of TCU vs. Kansas. Who’s got what? TCU is coming off a 63-17 blowout loss to a very good Oklahoma State team. Better than the CFP committee has them ranked. What

Stirring it Up in Stillwater

The season rolls on. And what a difference a win makes. After an entertaining, breath-taking, unexpected and energizing win over No. 12 Baylor last week, the Frogs get a reward. The prize? No. 10 Oklahoma State in Stillwater at night. One of the toughest places to play in the Big 12 will be packed and

Reeling in the Years — Thanks, Coach P

This has been a week. A week to reflect. A week to be thankful. A week that made us pause. And a week to get over. For the first time since December 2000, Gary Patterson will not lead the Frogs onto the field. And what a run it has been. We’ve all reeled in the

Headed to the Little Apple

Another Friday has sneaked up on us and the Frogs are headed to Manhattan, Kansas, and an appointment with Kansas State. A critical appointment. The Frogs are 3-4 after a disappointing Saturday last week that saw West Virginia knock over the Homecoming punch bowl and crash the party with a running game that kept the

Stormin’ Norman

The Frogs had so much fun and success in Lubbock, Texas, last weekend, they decided to go back out on the road this weekend. It’s a tall order, for sure, but not impossible. OU’s defense has issues and the distraction of a quarterback controversy even got the best of Lincoln Riley this week. Speaking of

Heading for the South Plains

The second weekend in October will greet the Frogs in Lubbock, Texas, but it’ll feel like July. Temps tomorrow in the Hub City will be hot, around 95 degrees. Both TCU and Tech hope to follow suit and get hot in their own right. The Frogs and Red Raiders have both fallen victim to Bevo over

In the aftermath of the SMU game, Frogs fans have come forth with multiple opinions, theories, belly-aches and concerns. More than a few, including your scribe, have lost some sleep. Granted, SMU ran for 350 yards and has an offensive line/running backs combo that’s the best since the Pony Express days of the early 1980s.

Time to Bear Down

Week 2 brings a still-unranked (and underrated) TCU team a visit from the PAC-12 as the Cal Bears look to erase the memory of a disappointing loss to Nevada in their opener. Like TCU, Cal has become known for its defense under head coach Justin Wilcox. The problem for the Bears in recent times has

This Much We Know

Game 1 has come and gone and the Frogs find themselves at 1-0. That was part of the plan scheduling FCS opponent Duquesne. Observations and thoughts from Saturday’s game: The 54-minute game was the first I’ve ever seen in my life with 12-minute quarters in the 2nd half. It was completely understandable, given the injuries
