The Frogs will be looking for plenty of impact from new and old faces this fall, and Jimmy Burch thinks these five guys could be game changers. True freshman running back Darius Anderson is one of the more intriguing names on the depth chart.

Darius Anderson, RB: Four-star freshman signee rushed for 2,274 yards and 30 TDs while averaging 8.7 yards per carry and leading Rosenburg George Ranch to a state championship last season. A versatile, speedy addition to the RB rotation who turned down offers from Alabama, Texas and Texas A&M to join the Horned Frogs.

TCU Football Position Preview: Tight Ends | The Star-Telegram

Yes, we do still have those. And there is potential for one to be pretty good.

Tight ends don’t get on the field as much as they used to at TCU. When they do, they’re asked to block. They might also serve as part-time fullbacks, as Cliff Murphy did in 2014. So strength, size and technique in the ground game matter for the Horned Frogs tight ends. But pass-catching skills are always welcome in the Air Raid, and Charlie Reid and Artayvious Lynn have the background.

Never known for holding back, Bielema seems pretty happy to use TCU as a vehicle to throw some shade at Big Blue.

"Great opportunity for us to play one of the best teams in college football over there," Bielema said in reference to the Horned Frogs. "Neat thing is they're coming here next year -- unless they Michigan us."

TCU fraternity shut down for misconduct | WFAA 8

Not a good look on campus, but it appears that TCU leadership took decisive action to curb the problems.

TCU 360 reported the same fraternity lost its housing privilege in 2008 because of alcohol violations, but returned a year later after completing a re-entry program and winning awards along the way for “Most Improved” and “Chapter Excellence.”

TCU said the chapter will now remain closed until stronger leadership can be established. Local alumni and the national headquarters will be part of developing a program to improve practices at the fraternity.
