Landing a recruit like Robinson, who the whole country wanted, chips away at the perception that TCU is not a consistent national player when it comes to the elite in college football. You don't go land the top quarterback prospect in any cycle if you aren't one of the best programs around, which TCU certainly is.
Looking back at TCU's 2014 season, there were few moments the Horned Frogs weren't in control, and fewer in which they looked overmatched. Among those moments were the final 11 minutes of last year's Revivalry matchup with Baylor.
The Horned Frogs have what many think is the best player in college football on their roster in Trevone Boykin.
Gary Patterson’s team is double-digit favorites in six different games released by The Golden Nugget, a Las Vegas sports book, on Friday. The Horned Frogs opened as double-digit favorites over Texas (21), Oklahoma State (11), Minnesota (18), Iowa State (29), West Virginia (20) and Kansas State (11). Trevone Boykin’s squad is also opened as a favorite in the Big 12’s spotlight of the year against fellow co-champion Baylor as a six-point favorite against the Bears.
It isn't every day that a team from the Mountain West plays their way to the Granddaddy of Them All, but that's exactly what happened in 2010. Thecame into that season with high expectations, having started sixth in the preseason AP poll, and did not disappoint. Only an Iron Bowl for the ages came between Gary Patterson's best Frogs ever and a shot at the national title.
