Shawn passed his on-field test, and was great with the media after.
On his first career touchdown run:
”That was exhilarating. The line blocked it perfectly and I had no choice but to score, they blocked everybody.”
On the differences between his start at Texas Tech last season and this year:
”It’s just different because you’re the guy. Last year it just happened out of nowhere. I hadn’t played in a long time. It’s a totally different mindset. I feel like I’ve gotten better at some things, I definitely have a lot more to get better at, but I feel like I’ve matured a lot from last year.”
Everyone was in agreement when it comes to Shawn... the young QB passed his first test, but has room to grow.
“I thought he did good; he did what he needed to do,” Patterson said. “We’ve got to catch the ball. I thought he practiced real well all week. He’s mobile and I thought he stayed in the pocket; a younger Shawn would’ve ran a few times but he stayed in the pocket and threw the ball down field. I think some of our receivers have the potential to be really good players but we’re going to have to play a lot better down the road.”
Sophomore receiver Jalen Reagor, who finished with a team-high four catches for 45 yards, says he felt like Robinson lived up to expectations.
“I feel like he handled himself well; he didn’t play a lot like I did last year but as far as him coming in relaxing and doing what he had to do I feel like he did a great job,” Reagor said.
“Because of the size of the expected crowd...” LOL. Yeah, that’s why.
When the Ohio State University football team plays Texas Christian University on Sept. 15, the Horned Frogs will, in theory, have home-field advantage.
But on my visit to AT&T Stadium earlier this year, the Buckeyes seemed to own the place.
The game had been scheduled to take place at TCU’s Amon G. Carter Stadium on the university’s Fort Worth campus, but it was moved to AT&T Stadium, 20 miles east in Arlington, because of the size of the expected crowd.
If UNT played Texas today... give me the Mean Green ;)
Shawn Robinson is good at football. After using his arm and legs to lead the Frogs over Southern 55-7, the sophomore QB proved he’s ready to take TCU on the road. (Reece Graham)
2. Texas A&M
Granted it was against Northwestern State, but the Aggies were absolutely dominant in their first win under Jimbo Fisher. Now comes the big test against No. 2 Clemson. (Alex Miller)
With its opening loss at Maryland, Texas has now dropped its last four games as an AP Top 25 ranked team, the third longest streak of the AP Poll era, via ESPN. (Chuck Carlton)
4. North Texas
UNT posted what one can argue is its biggest win in what is now three seasons under Seth Littrell, a 46-23 win over rival SMU in front of a record crowd of 29,519. (Brett Vito)
Eric Bell’s squad is still undefeated.
The Horned Frogs were even closer 14 minutes later. Under pressure from a Missouri defender, TCU’s Kayla Hill delivered a gorgeous cross through the box that found Messiah Bright, who fired a point-blank volley that went off the post.
After the near miss, Missouri responded well. In the 75th minute, redshirt junior midfielder Madison Lewis picked up the Tigers’ first shot of the second half. A slew of other chances followed, and momentum appeared to swing in Missouri’s favor despite losing Cross in the 86th minute to an apparent leg injury.
”I felt like we were going to be able to turn it (around) in the end with some good chances,” Blitz said.
The turnaround didn’t come to fruition. Following a strong Missouri start to overtime, TCU’s Warren glided down the right side of the pitch, beat two Missouri defenders, and fired a shot past a diving Dossey to give TCU the victory.
