No update yet to the quarterback conundrum as the Frogs head to Waco. Knowing Patterson, we probably won’t know until right before the first snap.
“No discussion about a possible change at quarterback has taken place which leads Patterson to believe Hill will remain the starter. However, he hinted that both could see action against the Bears regardless of what happens.”
Here’s hoping we run the damn ball...
“In Hicks’ absence against Texas Tech, a player emerged as a fan favorite with his bruising runs and his ability to drag defenders for a few extra yards with each carry; true freshman Sewo Olonilua. He led the Frogs’ rushing attack with 48 yards on only 7 carries.”
At this point, with a serviceable kicking game and the Frogs sitting at 4-4, do you really use up a year of eligibility for the kid who was slated to be Oberkrom’s replacement?
“When asked about his young kicker [Song], Patterson said Song is still working on returning from a preseason injury. Regardless of Song's ability to go, Patterson says he will continue to go with the best kicker.”
One positive has been the emergence [finally] of the defense:
“Carraway calls it a night-and-day difference. Patterson says he can put more on his defense’s plate with his game plans now that they get it. New contributors like defensive end Mat Boesen and defensive back Niko Small have emerged, and the Frogs now rank No. 2 in the Big 12 in yards per play during league play.”
All that Jamie Dixon hype is turning into quantifiable numbers for the resurgent basketball program.
“The total is a school record, surpassing last year’s mark of 3,700 to coincide with the $72 million renovation of Schollmaier Arena. At this point, TCU is more than 800 tickets ahead of last year’s pace and hopes to sell its remaining allotment (slightly more than 600) and reach 5,000 season tickets sold for the 2016-17 season.”
The Waco Tribune gives us a valiant effort at hyping up the real Revivalry matchup this weekend.
TCU knocked off No. 2 Kansas, 1-0, in the first round.

Elise Forzley’s the real deal, y’all.
TCU (1-1, 0-1) holds a 1-2 all-time dual record against the Cyclones. The Horned Frogs took the first ever matchup between the schools with a 160.5-139.5 victory in 2013. Last year, Iowa State topped the Frogs 169-130 in Ames.
