TCU's football season changed quickly, almost unimaginably | Fort Worth Star Telegram

Things weren't supposed to be this way.

The Horned Frogs are nobody’s darling anymore. They opened the season at No. 2, and despite the weekly injuries and close scrapes, they continued to hang around the top five. They got credit for the way they finished last season and rolled into this season with one of the nation’s top offenses and a leading Heisman contender. But one loss evaporated that goodwill. The Frogs plummeted in the CFP committee rankings after Oklahoma State. Boykin’s first four-interception game made his Heisman hopes disappear like a puff of dust. TCU is now the committee’s lowest-ranked one-loss team, a mere afterthought after months of riding high.

A weak resume isn't just a problem for the football teams in the Big 12.

Last season, the Horned Frogs missed a berth into the NCAA tournament by the narrowest of margins, holding a résumé that the committee deemed just a little less strong than a few other programs.

The Horned Frogs (3-0) have a chance to make a big statement toward their case for an NCAA tournament slot when they travel to College Station on Saturday to face No. 12 Texas A&M.
