TCU's 'goofy' kicker could be school's best ever | Fort Worth Star Telegram

Jadeon Oberkrom is on track to break some school kicking records.

In three seasons as a starter, he’s made 58 out of 75 field-goal attempts, a rate of 77.3 percent that’s fourth-best in school history. A good year could send him pass Nick Browne (78.3) and maybe Ross Evans (82.4).

A light year should at least put him past Browne for most field goals in school history. Browne made 65 from 2001-03. Oberkrom has 58. He’s also within range of Evans’ school scoring record of 407 points —he has 329 —and he holds the best extra-point percentage (99.4) in school history. His only miss was last year, when he made 76

There's a lot of concern around the linebacker unit for the Frogs, but there may be more talent there than we think.

Contenders: Freshman Mike Freeze, junior Sammy Douglas, freshman Montrel Wilson, redshirt freshman Ty Summers, freshman Alec Dunham, freshman Semaj Thomas.

Ex TCU receiver David Porter making favorable first impression at Cowboys camp | Fort Worth Star Telegram

David Porter joined the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, and he didn't waste any time tearing it up.

The former TCU receiver worked out at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday, doing enough to earn a spot on the 90-man roster. At 3:45 p.m. that day, he was practicing with the Cowboys and had scored three touchdowns by 4:30 p.m.

Why TCU can win the playoff | FOX News

Stewart Mandel and Bruce Feldman are previewing teams they feel have a real shot at winning the playoff.

If not for a blown 21-point fourth quarter lead against Baylor, TCU may well have won last year's playoff. The Frogs looked as powerful as anyone not named Ohio State come postseason, throttling a top-10 Ole Miss team 42-3 in the Peach Bowl. A year later, TCU somehow returns 10 starters, including Heisman frontrunner Trevone Boykin, from the nation's No. 2 scoring offense (46.5 points per game). With 98 combined starts among their offensive linemen, skilled receivers like Josh Doctson and Kolby Listenbee, and veteran tailback Aaron Green, the Horned Frogs' offense should be prolific yet again.

2015 Big 12 preview: After last year's snub, does Big 12 have playoff team? | Sports Illustrated

The author of this article thinks TCU is going to lose two conference games. Shame on her.

Someone was always going to be left out. That's the nature of five power conferences and four College Football Playoff bids. It still didn't make it easier to swallow for the Big 12, when TCU, ranked No. 3 in the penultimate playoff rankings, and Baylor, the victor of its meeting with the Horned Frogs, were both shut out of the inaugural playoff.

Recruiting

TCU's most important recruit | Scout.com

Nope, it's not Stephen Sullivan out of Louisiana.

He posted a 4.32 40-yard dash and a 3.94 pro-shuttle at The Opening finals and backed up those times with production on the field. He was one of the most dominant players there.
