Gary Patterson spoke during Sunday’s media availability about the chances of Turpin participating in TCU’s Pro Day.
“If he can get everything cleared up, and everybody thinks that he’s done a good job of trying to better himself, then he’ll have an opportunity to run for us and help himself in his NFL career,” Patterson said after spring practice Sunday. “If he doesn’t do that, then I have people that I have to answer to and you have to do the right thing. And he knows that.”
If the trend continues, the Frogs could be in for a huge year.
The three previous times that TCU has finished .500 or worse in the regular season, the Horned Frogs have responded with double-figure wins the next year. The upcoming season will test TCU’s history of resiliency after a late push gave TCU a 6-6 regular season followed by a win over Cal in in the Cheez-Its Bowl.
It’s an uphill battle, but the Frogs are going to keep fighting.
“There’s no quit in us, not for those seniors too,” freshman guard R.J. Nembhard said. “We’ve got to keep our heads up, get better every day. At this point, we’ve just got to win.”
