The Horned Frogs beat a bad Houston team. Normally this wouldn’t propel them to number four but as you’ll see, most of the conference sucked this week.
Since the moment he stepped on campus, Patrick has approached making the most of his dream opportunity with an intensity on the field and easy to get along with personality off of it, which has already helped him become a key cog for TCU’s offense.
Through three games, Patrick has arguably been one of the top starters up front and is looking more and more like one of TCU’s biggest transfer additions ahead of the Horned Frogs rivalry game vs. SMU on Saturday.
SMU defensive coordinator Scott Symons didn’t beat around the bush. “It’s the best offense we’ll see this year,” Symons said of TCU.
Chandler Morris is a ball player. He’s a coach’s kid. I’ve known him for a long time,” SMU coach Rhett Lashlee said.
“He competes, he’s a winner, he can extend plays. He can run it. It’s a problem,” Lashlee said. “They’re really good up front, they’re really good everywhere.”
SMU offense vs. TCU defense. The Mustangs averaged 54 points per game in victories over Louisiana Tech and Prairie View A&M but couldn’t get that kind of production against their only Power Five opponent, losing to Oklahoma 28-11. The Horned Frogs haven’t allowed an offensive touchdown since giving up six to Shedeur Sanders and Colorado in a 45-42 loss in the opener.
TCU has a lot of veteran guards and bigs that’ll be moving on after this season. However, one positon where there’s youth and depth is small forward, featuring four-star freshmen, Jace Posey and Isaiah Manning. The roster fit is questionable but since this is the lone local option among the four, that could help the Frogs here.
Andy Dalton has no illusions. A month or so short of his 36th birthday, he's old enough to know better than to think the current opportunity is anything other than a short-term one.
Positioned to start Sunday in Seattle since injured rookie Bryce Young isn't practicing and isn't expected to play, Dalton has been taking all the reps with the ones and remembering what it's like again.
Bryce Young has not practiced since the Panthers' Week 2 loss against the Saints due to an ankle injury, and he's unlikely to play Sunday against the Seahawks, the team announced Thursday.

“In the fruitful first inning, the RiverDogs scored seven runs, all of the unearned variety, on five hits and sent 10 batters to the plate,” said the RiverDogs in a post-game review. “The inning began with Brock Porter walking Brayden Taylor.
