TCU 2020 Player Profile: Max Duggan | Horned Frog Blitz

What is expected of Max? Probably a lot.

WHAT IS EXPECTED OF HIM IN 2020?

Duggan is the unquestioned starter heading into the season after starting ten games last season. He’s already shown he can be a threat throwing and running the ball, he just needs to limit his mistakes and stop forcing some passes. Most fans will hope that he’s worked on his touch over the off-season as well as he had many overthrown passes last season. If the Frogs’ offensive line is improved, it can limit his mistakes as many of them came when he was in a panic. Despite his setbacks as a true freshman, the positives far outweighed them. With over 2,600 yards and 21 touchdowns accounted for, Duggan is already on pace to have better careers than Andy Dalton and Trevone Boykin; the latter two at least had a redshirt year to prepare.

Only if we obliterate them by one million points and don’t pay them a dime.

With last week’s announcements by the Big Ten and PAC-12, several teams have already lost games, including fellow Independent BYU who has last 5 games from its 2020 slate. Certainly, McCaw and members of his staff have been on the phone frequently over the past few days talking to the fellow Independents and others who have had their schedules already affected.

One of those schools appears to be TCU.

The Forth Worth Star-Telegram is reporting that Alabama, BYU, Liberty, and Texas A&M are all “possibilities” to replace Cal on TCU’s schedule. The Horned Frogs and Golden Bears were scheduled to meet Sept. 5 in Berkeley.

TCU cuts online course tuition for the fall | TCU360

It’s the right thing to do.

In the email, sent prior to the town hall, Boschini said the board of trustees met this week and approved spending additional $50 million in financial aid to students for the fall semester. The board also approved spending up to $15 million for students who qualify for need-based aid.

In the town hall meeting, Boschini said students would receive a 10% increase in aid for each online course. If all students have to move to distance learning, the aid will be extended to those who had in-person classes as well.
