TCU’s strong finish needs final push against Longhorns | Fort Worth Star Telegram

I don’t know who Stefan’s stats guy is, but he needs to double check some of the numbers in this piece. TCU is 11-2 since being swept by Baylor, not 10-2, and the Frogs are 14-5 against Texas since joining the Big 12, not 8-10, and TCU went 1-2 at UT in 2016, not 2-1.

Texas’ offense is led by Kody Clemens (son of MLB legend and Texas ex Roger Clemens) who is hitting .345 with 16 home runs (second in the Big 12) and 55 RBIs (third in the Big 12). The Longhorns are 24-7 at home this season.

It’s always cool when the coaches go out and do these events. It’s even cooler when Austin media uses it as an opportunity to remind folks who runs the state.

TCU has owned Texas as of late. It’s won the last four meetings by a combined score of 153-33. But Patterson says he doesn’t expect it’ll be easy to keep the streak going.

That new TCU hotel? Here’s what it will look like | Fort Worth Star Telegram

Check out these renderings, it’s pretty cool. It’ll be built on what’s currently a parking lot down on Berry, between Sandage and McCart.

The developer of a planned hotel on the TCU campus says the structure will open in spring 2020, with 150 rooms, a rooftop bar and a 4,000-square-foot ballroom.
