Interesting arguments from Galloway and Matich.

On College Football Live, ESPN’s Joey Galloway and Trevor Matich debate whether TCU can contend for the National Championship with a lackluster defense.

TCU's defense is the story of the day, again.

TCU has already had a nation's-most 13 defensive players make their first career starts this season, and that doesn't included former transfer Aaron Curry, who made eight starts for Nebraska in 2013 before returning to his hometown to play at TCU. Six different starters have missed games or are still out with injuries, and a seventh took a personal leave from the team after starting the season opener as a true freshman.

It's been a long time since TCU beat Texas in consecutive seasons.

Now, as TCU prepares to host the Longhorns on Saturday, there is a chance for a three-wins-in-four-years stretch against Texas. The Frogs haven’t done that since 1958, ’59 and ’61.

Initially overlooked Doctson leads TCU in 2015 | The Daily Texan

Nice write up on Josh Doctson.

TCU’s senior wide receiver is the kid from Mansfield that no Division I college football program in Texas wanted. The high school senior wasn’t ranked on ESPN’s RecruitingNation. Doctson, a transfer student from Wyoming, had to walk on for the Horned Frogs.

After his 18-reception, 267-yard and three touchdown performance in TCU’s miraculous 55-52 win against Texas Tech, he’s arguably the best wide receiver in college football. But Doctson’s uprising began innocuously.

A depleted squad will look to pull it together as they push to improve on the court for the second consecutive season. They've got a good foundation, in Karviar Shepherd and Chris Washburn.

Washburn, who one national analyst has tagged as one of the top returning players in the Big 12 Conference this season, should become even more of a factor for TCU in 2015-16 after closing out last season scoring back-to-back double-digit outings at the conference tournament. When it was all said and done, the Grand Prairie native scored in double-figures in eight games and ranked No. 12 overall in the Big 12 Conference in rebounding and No. 7 in blocked shots, respectively.
