TCU shattered a Big 12 record on Saturday night, allowing just 21 yards of offense to Kansas. It wasn’t however, a TCU record for best defensive performance. That belongs to the 1932 crew.
TCU was not close to the team low-yardage record. The 1932 Horned Frogs allowed negative-32 against Hardin-Simmons.
As a top 10 team at home, TCU is as good as you could want them to be.
John Diarse had a 67-yard catch-and-run touchdown for a 24-0 lead in the second quarter and finished with 130 yards on four receptions as the Horned Frogs (7-0, 4-0 Big 12) improved to 19-0 at home as a top 10 team under coach Gary Patterson.
Most of these pieces talk about how bad Kansas is, but I’m over here wondering...gee if they’re that bad, why haven’t more teams held them to record lows? Perhaps it also has something to do with TCU’s defense.
The Jayhawks finished with 21 yards of total offense, the fewest yards by an FBS team in the past 20 seasons, according to ESPN Stats & Information. The previous low in that span had been 27 yards by Florida International in a 2013 loss to Louisville.
Ahhh, that’s better. A headline that gives credit where its due.
TCU held Kansas to a conference-record-low 21 yards of total offense in 49 plays and sent the Jayhawks’ running game into retreat, holding it to minus-25 yards, the third-fewest allowed in FBS this season.
That’s not defense, that’s football oppression and it’s also, believe it or not, a bit deceiving.
As the fourth quarter began, the Frogs had held Kansas to 4 yards and a very John “Bluto” Blutarsky Animal House-approved minus-0.1 average-yards per play.
I think they want to fire their Athletic Director....
Kansas has now tied the NCAA record for consecutive road losses at 44, and looks to shatter that record as long as Zenger and Beaty are at the helm. When you think of unbreakable records, you'll think of Dimaggio's 56-game hitting streak and whatever number KU's losing streak reaches.
There’s just not much else to say. Fire everyone.
But start with #FireZenger.
