We need to appreciate how great a player the Frogs have had for the past four years.

The talks of Moore’s life after TCU are already in full force.

“There has been talk about me playing professionally, and I have already filled out my WNBA forms,” said Moore. “I definitely want to keep playing after TCU, and if I don’t end up continuing playing then I’ll be fine with starting a job. I have no problem and would love to do a 9-5, because all I know is basketball and school.”

As we await the ending to Moore’s final chapter at TCU, the Frogs have two regular season games remaining before the Big 12 Tournament, including Saturday’s contest at Oklahoma at 4:30 p.m. on FSSW.

Moore and the Horned Frogs are hopeful to play deep into March. With her on their side, anything is possible.

QB battle, staying healthy among storylines as TCU opens its spring practice | The Star-Telegram

There is a new philosophy behind the health and wellness of TCU Football.

Given the number of injuries TCU dealt with last season, staying healthy is a priority. Coach Gary Patterson said last month that the program didn’t plan many drastic changes to its offseason preparation.

Several of the injuries TCU sustained last season, such as Ross Blacklock’s Achilles injury, were non contact.

“Some of the injuries had nothing to do with how you train,” Patterson said at his recruiting day news conference. “Guys running across the field and their leg goes out. We’re still in our same combo, but we’re changing them up a little bit.”

Part of the changes, Patterson said, includes going back to what the program calls “MTXE” workouts. Those workouts center on everything from “throwing bales of hay” to picking up football sleds.

The idea is to build more full body movements.

“We had gone away from it for a couple years, so we’re back at it,” Patterson said.
