TCU Ranked #16 in Sports Illustrated's Preseason Poll

USA TODAY Sports

Dan Greene of Sports Illustrated doesn't mention Frogs O' War, but he seems to like the football team just fine.

TCU has seen it's preseason ranking fluctuate between 15-20 based on who is ranking them, and the Sports Illustrated Preseason Poll is no different.

TCU is ranked #16 by Sports Illustrated, which I think people should be pretty pleased with.

Here's a snippet of what they have to say about the Frogs:

The Horned Frogs had a fairly encouraging Big 12 debut last season, going 4-5 in the conference and 7-6 overall. Even more encouraging for 2013: Three of those losses came by seven points or fewer, and 15 starters return. That total includes nine from a defense that ranked 16th nationally in yards from scrimmage (323.9 per game) and saw a pair of stars emerge in cornerback Jason Verrett (AP third-team All‑America) and defensive end Devonte Fields (10 sacks and a conference-best 18.5 tackles for loss). Also back is quarterback Casey Pachall, who in four wins last September threw for 948 yards and 10 touchdowns with just one interception. But an October arrest for DWI led to a season-ending suspension and substance-abuse rehab, and he must now beat out sophomore Trevone Boykin, who was erratic as a starter last fall.


The #16 ranking puts TCU as the second highest Big 12 team in the rankings, behind Texas (#11) but ahead of Baylor (#17) and Oklahoma (#19).
