It looks like it’s really happening, folks.
On his Tuesday media call, Gary Patterson confirmed that every member of the TCU Football program had tested negative for COVID on Sunday, giving us a great shot of seeing Frog Football for the first time this fall on Saturday. TCU will kick-off the 2020 campaign in an unusual way, going straight to conference play after being forced to “reschedule” the planned opener against SMU (well, planned in the sense that it was the last chance to play a non-conference team before Big 12 play, after Cal cancelled the original opener, a rescheduled opener at UNLV was shelved, and Tennessee Tech back out of a trip to Fort Worth due to COVID concerns).
Yes, this is practically the Frogs’ fifth season opening football game, but the first that looks like it might actually be played.
Here’s what we know:
- Trevon Moehrig is very good.
- Garret Wallow? Also very good.
- Ar’Darius Washington... you guess it, very good.
- Matthew Downing will start, Max Duggan will play.
Other than that, there’s plenty to look forward to, but not a lot of definitive “knowns”.
With that being said, you’ve got questions, and we (might) have answers. So hit us up in this week’s mailbag and let us know what you want to know!
