TCU News: “That’s how I always carry myself — I always have that chip on my shoulder”

The Horned Frogs’ RB has played with a little extra motivation this fall.

Maybe this week, they won’t forget to give him the ball in the first half.

“That’s how I always carry myself — I always have that chip on my shoulder,” Anderson said. “I know things happen, people forget and stuff, but I’ve always had that mentality with a chip on my shoulder.”

Now Anderson is re-writing his script. He’s showcasing why most believe he’ll be playing on Sundays in the near future.

Patterson described Saturday’s contest as a “big boy” game, meaning it’ll be a run-heavy and physical affair. That’s music to Anderson’s ears.

“Whatever coaches need me to do, but of course I look forward to it,” Anderson said. “Running and doing whatever I can to help the team.”

This is so bad. I can’t do anything but laugh.

Kansas State has run into a couple of solid teams over the last two weeks, both with some elite superstars on the offensive side of the ball. This allowed Baylor and Oklahoma State to put pressure on the Wildcats to keep up, thus taking them out of their comfort zone.

I don’t believe TCU has the athletes to get that done on Saturday. The Wildcats are slightly more battle-tested and will be motivated at home to get back on the winning track. Look for Kansas State head coach Chris Klieman to figure out a way to pressure TCU’s young quarterback into finally making some mistakes with the football.

It’s all good vibes for the former Cat as he returns to the Little Apple.

“He was a great dude who worked really hard and was there for me when I first got here,” K-State running back Harry Trotter said of Delton. “It will definitely be fun seeing him here. I wish him the best.”

At this time last year, Skylar Thompson and Delton were teammates intertwined in a quarterback derby that often felt like it overshadowed a disappointing season that turned out to be Bill Snyder’s final year on the job. It grabbed headlines all year.

Thompson started 10 games, but Delton played in seven and served as the primary passer in three. They split snaps whenever Delton was healthy. Though Thompson proved to be the better quarterback, K-State would not have beaten Kansas or stayed competitive against TCU without Delton.
