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

TCU and SMU to Meet as Undefeated Teams

Ninety-seven times. When it’s all said and done tomorrow at Amon G. Carter Stadium, that’s how many times TCU and SMU will have played football against each other. For SMU, there’s no other school they’ve played more than TCU. And no other team they’d love to beat more. This is SMU’s most talented and weapon-laden

TCU is Heating Up, Just in Time for the Iron Skillet

The Horned Frogs treated us all to a delicious afternoon last Saturday in Fayetteville with a 28-7 win. TCU controlled the game throughout and did what they had to do to win on the road: they got off to a hot start, played great on third down on both sides of the ball, dominated time

Keep a Sharp Eye on the Razorbacks

Hello, Horned Frogs fans…..It’s FRIDAY! That’s what the great Paul Harvey used to sign on with every Friday – I sure miss him. Head for the Hills seems to be the theme for the week. Folks in Florida are heading for higher ground as Hurricane Irma approaches and the Frogs are headed to the Ozarks
