Five way-too-early TCU football  predictions for 2015 | Dallas Morning News

Aaron Green becomes a major NFL prospect. Green started the season backing up B.J. Catalon, but took full advantage of his opportunity when Catalon was hurt late in the season. While Green surprised some by coming seemingly out of nowhere to be the Frogs leading rusher, he’s no slouch. Green was the No. 8 running back in the country when he came out of high school, according to Rivals. He didn’t have much of an impact as a freshman at Nebraska or his first year of eligibility with TCU, but his junior performance reminded many of the back they saw out of San Antonio in the class of 2011.

The Horned Frogs led 28-0 by halftime and 42-0 in the third quarter. No team was more impressive in its bowl game than TCU, which will return 10 offensive starters in 2015.

Effort, not arena setting, behind TCU's shooting defense, coach says | Fort Worth Star Telegram

No arena is bigger than the game James Naismith bequeathed to generations, TCU basketball coach Trent Johnson asserted on Monday.

So anyone who suggests that one reason the TCU men’s basketball team has held opponents to 35 percent shooting in home games is because Wilkerson-Greines presents a shooting disadvantage to opponents is full of horse hockey.
