Former TCU star Collier pleased with his start for Seahawks but hungry to do more | Fort Worth Star Telegram

L.J. has had a very good start to his season, recording his first career sack and four tackles as an every-game starter for undefeated Seattle this season.

“I’m very pleased with how I’ve started the season off,” Collier told the Star-Telegram during the Seahawks’ bye week. “I’ve made some plays. It’s definitely going better than last year. Five starts … I’m very happy with how I’ve started, but I’ve still got a lot of growth to do. It’s a long season, so I need to keep listening to my coaches and learn as I go.”

OU football at TCU: Broadcast info, betting lines, matchup breakdown | The Oklahoman

We turn our attention to Oklahoma, whom the Frogs take on this Saturday at 11am.

The case for TCU: Duggan is mobile and the Sooners have struggled against mobile quarterbacks. Last year, he ran for 92 yards and a touchdown against the Sooners. Though the OU offense has more firepower, and the Horned Frogs have allowed nearly 30 points per game, the Sooners haven’t shown the ability to put opponents away. OU has struggled majorly in the fourth quarter of games and if TCU is within striking distance late, the Horned Frogs are good enough to pull off the win, especially with a Gary Patterson-coached defense on the other side.

This is a great story, worth the read. Doumbia seems like a tremendous young man, and his comments give us some insight into how Jamie Dixon and Co. go about recruiting players.

“They were just so professional in their recruitment,” Doumbia said. “They showed me how they were going to develop me and they didn’t talk negatively about any other program. I liked that they didn’t do that.

“It was just about them and how they’ll help me get better. That’s why I’m going to TCU.”
