Morrison (7-1) tossed his second complete-game shutout of the season to help the Horned Frogs even the series at Kansas State last Saturday. He needed just 115 pitches to make it through the game as Kansas State had just six base runners, three of which came in the ninth inning, and had only two in scoring position.
The road trip is almost over for TCU baseball, which is probably ready to come home after dropping two of three in a series at Kansas State. It made the Horned Frogs 4-4 on the road since March 31.
The TCU baseball team will look to get back on track on Tuesday as they wrap up a stretch of nine out of 10 games away from home at UT Arlington. Game time is set for 6:30 p.m.
TCU hasn’t dominated Big 12 baseball so far this year as some people expected, but Horned Frogs pitchers certainly are doing their part.
So when Patterson last week finally expressed his dissatisfaction with TCU’s treatment by the College Football Playoff selection committee, people weren’t exactly surprised. Actually, some had marveled that Coach P hadn’t surfaced immediately after TCU failed to make the top four and the CFP semifinals. Instead, Patterson took the high road and left the venting to Baylor counterpart Art Briles.
On this one, he was not complaining. If anybody on this earth understands the inherent inequity and unfairness of college football, it is Gary Patterson. If anybody can wait it out, and play it out, it is Gary Patterson.
The most intriguing candidate is Nebraska-transfer Aaron Curry, who sat out last year due to transfer rules. The Keller Fossil Ridge graduate started each Big Ten game for the Huskers in 2013, finishing that season with 26 tackles, three tackles for loss and two sacks.
And as he has all spring, speedy wideout Kolby Listenbee stole the show, turning a short pass from backup QB Grayson Muehlstein into a long touchdown. Listenbee later forced a pass interference call on starting cornerback Ranthony Texada.
Since he arrived at TCU in 2000, Gary Patterson has won 132 games, had 33 players drafted, been honored with 20 national coach of the year awards and won six conference championships in three different leagues. Patterson's success is even more remarkable when you find out he's done all of this without having a single top-25 recruiting class.
Trent Johnson said he has gotten good response as he recruits in the wake of a winning season for TCU men’s basketball, and evidence is starting to roll in.
