Getting Anderson back would be a boon for the TCU offense.
Running back Darius Anderson will be a game-time decision for the Alamo Bowl as TCU takes as much time as it can to make a decision about whether to use its leading rusher against Stanford.
Horned Frogs coach Gary Patterson described a balancing act between getting something out of his top back and maximizing his recovery for next season, when he will return as the team’s most experienced and explosive back.
“You can’t accomplish any more in this season, so you got to make sure he is ready to go and there’s no chance of putting him in harm’s way,” Patterson said after Friday’s practice.
I would hope this year’s players learned from the mistakes of two years ago.
TCU will return to San Antonio for the Alamo Bowl with the same curfew and bed check procedures as two years ago, when Trevone Boykin was arrested and sent home following a bar fight, coach Gary Patterson said.
“It was tight last time,” he said Friday after practice when asked if curfew restrictions would be tighter for this trip. “We had bed check. He was in bed check. We knew what we were supposed to do. You can’t control knuckleheads.”
Coach Pebley’s team is off to a hot start this season.
"They definitely know how to score the basketball," second-year head coach Jordan Dupuy said. "We're going to have to keep them off-balance. Play a little man and a little zone, change it up. It's a tough test for us, but one we need to embrace. We need to go play well, learn what we can learn and implement it in the conference season."
