The College Football Hall of Fame named their players and teams of the decade earlier this month, and TCU Football found themselves amongst the best of the best of the 2010 decade.

The Horned Frogs had a good stretch from 2011-2019, winning 69 games (losing just 35), winning a pair of conference titles - in two different conferences - and moving from the Group of Five world to the Big 12. They went 43-27 in conference play despite making the jump to the Power Five - going 11-14 in their first two seasons as members of the Big 12 and 47-19 the past five with a 30-15 mark in conference play. TCU made a bowl game in seven of eight seasons, winning five - including the Peach Bowl in 2014 and the Alamo Bowl twice.

The only other Big 12 team on the list is Oklahoma, and only Oklahoma State wide receiver Justin Blackmon made the all-decade team amongst conference players. Seven Alabama players are among nine chosen from the SEC.

TCU is widely considered by intelligent college football pundits and fans to be one of the best programs of the last 20 years under the helm of Gary Patterson. GP is among the winningest coaches in the country and is far and away the winningest coach in TCU Football history. They have won seven conference titles since the turn of the century, more than the rest of the Power Five teams in the state of Texas combined.

TCU Football kicks off their 2019 campaign on August 31st at 7:00pm against Arkansas-Pine Bluff.
