TCU star WR Doctson (wrist) hopes to play in Alamo Bowl | FOX Sports

This would be a fantastic boost for the Frogs.

Doctson is scheduled to have a follow-up exam next week, when he expects "to have a better idea when I can get started with rehab." That is the soonest he might get his cast off.

They were more in sync than any other QB-WR duo in TCU history.

“He’s a pretty smart, savvy guy,” Boykin said of his teammate. “He knows what he likes when he sees the defense. We can kind of just read each other’s minds.

“We did a really good job with that, both of us.”

Big 12 mandates upgrades to future nonconference FB schedules | Fort Worth Star Telegram

It's a positive move for the league, the ol' "Art Briles Act."

In both seasons, the Big 12’s highest-ranked team dropped at least one spot in the final rankings on Selection Sunday while being passed by the winner of the Big Ten championship game both times. In both seasons, CFP selection committee chairman Jeff Long has identified a weak nonconference schedule as a reason committee members questioned the merits of Baylor (2014, 2015), TCU (2015), North Carolina (2015) and other schools while explaining how teams landed in the weekly rankings.

Longhorns still waiting on Cumbie to answer Air Raid siren | FOX Sports

Pretty sure the $$ amount listed for what Cumbie makes now is wrong.

According to the Austin American-Statesman, Cumbie earns around $700,000 at TCU, a sizable contract for a co-offensive coordinator, and he could reap around $1 million per season at Texas.

They look pretty cool. I wonder if TCU will get new uniforms as well.

Oregon will debut Nike's "Vapor Untouchable Performance System" uniforms during the Valero Alamo Bowl against TCU on Jan. 2 in San Antonio, Texas.

TCU Can't Solve Washington Tuesday Night |

A few Frogs played well, but it wasn't nearly enough to be competitive.

The Frogs, who fell to 4-4 overall with the loss, were carried by Malique Trent's 13-point outing. Trent went 6-of-9 from the field and also tallied four assists. The sophomore has now led TCU in assists in three-straight games.

Fellow sophomore Vladimir Brodziansky followed with 10 points on 4-of-7 from the floor, while freshman JD Miller carried the Purple and White on the glass with a career-high 12 boards.

Frogs Host SFA Looking for 12th Straight Home Win |

They've still got a long way to go to catch their longest streak of 27-games, but 12 would be fantastic.

TCU (6-2) has built an impressive home winning streak dating to last season. The streak is currently at 11 games, including six to end last season. It marks the sixth time in program history that TCU has won at least 10 straight games at home and the first time it has happened since a streak that spanned the 2008-09 through 2010-11 seasons. Only an 18-game streak during the 2005-06 and 2006-07 seasons and a program-best 27-game streak during the 2008-09 and 2010-11 seasons is longer.

Prukrop, an Austin native, is expected to graduate this month and is eligible to transfer and immediately play in 2016. He threw for 3,025 and 28 touchdowns for Montana State.
