Fox Sports’ Urban Meyer wonders what’s wrong with TCU during halftime show | The Star-Telegram

I finally agree with something that Urban Meyer said.

“[TCU] is getting out-coached right now. West Virginia is doing a heckuva job because just purely on paper TCU is a better job, better talent to recruit from. What in the world is going on? You know they’ve got a great coach in Gary Patterson, but there’s something going on. My gosh, they beat Texas earlier in the year and they just look … is something wrong with TCU right now? They just don’t look right.”

Gary’s response was priceless, though.

‘Just tired of coming up short.’ TCU football falls flat in 24-6 loss at West Virginia | The Star-Telegram

Three straight years of close loss after close loss... and the occasional blowout.

TCU’s defense finished with just two sacks and didn’t get a takeaway. The Frogs also gave up a 99-yard TD drive on their first defensive series of the game. The Mountaineers needed 15 plays to march the length of the field, scoring on a 1-yard run by Doege.

Patterson had an interesting comparison when asked the feeling of giving up a 99-yard TD drive.

“What would you like if someone took your girlfriend? It feels about the same way,” Patterson said. “It was all our fault. Defensively it was all our fault. We’ve got to get ready to go. We did not do a good job. Our younger players didn’t line up when they moved all their sets around. It was a learning experience.

“I thought after the first two touchdowns our kids fought back the rest of the ball game. It could’ve been a lot worse.”

Kansas State volleyball completes weekend series sweep of TCU with a 5-set win | Manhattan Mercury

TCU Volleyball has been a surprise in 2020 — and not in the way we expected.

The Horned Frogs took the next three points for a 24-22 lead. K-State scored the next point to close draw within one, but TCU captured the next point to force a fifth and deciding set.

“We could have won (the fourth set),” Carter said.

“But we played how we were supposed to play tonight, and I think we did a great job. (TCU) is a good team. I think it will always be frustrating if things do not go your way. With this team, it is really good that we can just bounce back from anything. And that we can overcome anything.”

Director of baseball operations shares her journey into sports | TCU 360

Montgomery is an absolute asset for TCU Baseball.

“There are not a lot of female director of operations,” Montgomery said. “It kind of ebbs and flows. When I started, I think there were maybe two other women that were doing the job.”

There were some adjustments that had to be made after she got the job. To get to the field, she used to have to go through the locker room, which required a lot of knocking and making sure it was OK to come in. Now, her office is in a different location that gives her easier access to the field.

“I kind of happened into it a little bit, was in the right place at the right time, but also, getting that experience while a TCU student kind of led me into that path,” Montgomery said.
