TCU News: “Hell, if you can keep them under 30, we should win here. We should win every damn game.”

Big words from the Frogs’ newest staff addition, but hey — it’s fun to want to believe him!

‘Best job in America.’ Jerry Kill embraces new role, ready to turn TCU’s offense around | The Star-Telegram

This is a great in-depth look at Kill, that should get Frog fans more excited than they initially were. I mean, just look at this:

Maybe that’s what TCU needs to get its football program back to the level it’s been before. After all, the expectation is for the defense to continue playing at a high level under Patterson.

Now it’s on Kill and the rest of the offensive minds to get that side playing at a high level again.

“Gary’s the best coach in the country. There ain’t no question in my mind and I guarantee you as a defensive coach, he’s a genius,” Kill said. “We’ve seen that. Hell, if you can keep them under 30, we should win here. We should win. We should win every damn game.

“That puts a lot of pressure on what I just said, but we should win every game.”

Success, yes, but not quite the success that TCU hoops fans have been looking for | The Star-Telegram

Does this change after Saturday’s win?

TCU is currently heading towards another appearance in the NIT, at best, which means the fourth year of the Jamie Dixon era is not quite going according to plan.

The expectation was when TCU lured their favorite basketball alum away from Pitt that the success he had there would translate to Fort Worth.

The evidence is irrefutable that since Dixon arrived the state of basketball at TCU has improved. It’s at least a relevant program now, capable of contending for postseason appearances.

The evidence is also irrefutable that TCU basketball under Jamie Dixon was expected to be ahead of where it is now. The Horned Frogs are struggling to remain above .500 and, at the moment, are outside of any plausible conversation for an NCAA Tourney berth.

Baseball sweeps Kentucky in opening weekend | TCU 360

It’s hard not to be excited about this squad.

TCU baseball closed out their first series of the season with a 10-5 win over Kentucky and a series sweep over the Wildcats.

“I couldn’t ask for anything more,” head coach Jim Schlossnagle said. “We saw a lot of guys play their first Divison 1 game or had their first [Divison 1] opportunity to pitch and I think they all did a great job.”

The bats came alive for the Horned Frogs with a five-run second inning that started with a single RBI by second baseman Gray Rodgers. Catcher Zach Humphreys crossed the plate for TCU’s second run with a bases-loaded walk and shortstop Tommy Sacco hit a three-run double to close out the inning.

No. 7 A&M drops ITA finale to No. 11 TCU | The Eagle

After a tough stretch against top teams, the Frogs bounced back by bouncing the Aggies.

TCU earned the doubles point to open the match through wins on courts two and three. In singles action, the Horned Frogs claimed first sets on five courts but the Aggies were able to force third sets on two. TCU earned points on courts two, four and six to secure the win.
