Purple season in Fort Worth | Fort Worth Star Telegram

TCU doesn't live in a bubble, what they do effects the city.

Montrel Wilson, who just switched from safety to LB, apparently pushed Douglas for the strongside linebacker spot.

True freshman Mike Freeze will start at middle linebacker, as expected, while junior Sammy Douglas beat out freshman Montrel Wilson for the strongside linebacker job.

Moving time: TCU offense wants control in 4th quarter on road | Fort Worth Star Telegram

The Kindred thing is speculation, but we know that McFarland will be one of the two.

While TCU returns 10 starters on offense, only five starters from last year's standout defense return in 2015.

Big 12 predictions: TCU to win the conference | News OK

Interesting picks.

I’m going to go with no upsets among Big 12 contenders. OU, OSU, Baylor and TCU don’t lose to any other Big 12 team except each other. In that case, my final Big 12 standings would be TCU 8-1, OSU 8-1, OU 7-2, Baylor 7-2.

TCU embracing big target on its back entering Minnesota | Dallas Morning News

This is a big, big game for Minnesota.

TCU is the highest-ranked team that Minnesota has ever faced in a season opener. The Gophers haven’t beaten a Top 10 team at home since upsetting No. 1 Michigan in 1977.
