Definitively Ranking All 130 College Football Head Coaching Jobs

With nearly 40-50 programs willing to inject millions in their football programs, not everyone will be happy, or even content. But, as big money continues to talk in college sports, people listen.

TCU’s offense reloaded and ready for a Big 12 Title run

The biggest question mark for the Horned Frogs heading into the 2016 season is whether or not the offense will be able to overcome the loss of key players such as Trevone Boykin and Josh Doctson. One thing to remember is that TCU's offense was not entirely at full strength last year. Receiver Deante’ Gray, who was a big time player...

The New Big 12

Remember the good ol' days when the Big 12 was the original Big 12 and actually had 12 teams in the conference? Seems almost like a distant memory, especially considering how well Missouri and Texas A&M seem to be fitting in within the SEC. However, there was a time long when people called it the "PAC 10" and the Big...

KaVontae Turpin could be TCU’s next big star

With big play receivers Josh Doctson and Kolby Listenbee now in the NFL, the question for TCU is who will be the next man up? To answer this question, TCU will look to sophomore KaVontae Turpin. As a true freshman, Turpin saw significant playing time in all 13 games last season including five starts. Turpin totaled 45 receptions for 649...

TCU brings back experienced defense for 2016

Gary Patterson is one of greatest defensive minds in college football, and last season put him to the test. Injuries plagued TCU’s defense for a majority of the season losing defensive end James McFarland, linebacker Sammy Douglas, safety Kenny Iloka, and cornerback Ranthony Texada all by the third game of the season. Freshman Travin Howard and Montrel Wilson had...

Big 12 Announces Preseason All-Conference Team

The Preaseason All-Big 12 team as voted by the media for 2016 was revealed yesterday, and heavily favors Oklahoma. Although not quite as relevant as real awards announced after a season is actually played, preseason all-conference teams still carry weight. With an overwhelming nine Oklahoma players, OU looks to defend its conference title. As far as greater individual awards go, the Big 12...

TCU vs. OU could be the Game of the Year in the Big 12

The last two seasons have featured great match ups between the Sooners and Horned Frogs. In 2014 TCU defeated Oklahoma 37-33 thanks to an early fourth quarter pick six by linebacker Paul Dawson. Last seasons game came down to the wire as the Sooners survived a late rally by the Horned Frogs to win 30-29 after a failed 2-point conversion...

What the loss of Shaun Nixon means for the TCU backfield

During the first day of Big 12 media days, TCU football coach Gary Patterson delivered the news that running back Shaun Nixon would be out for the year because of an undisclosed injury. Nixon was listed as the number two running back behind Kyle Hicks. Now the Horned Frogs will be searching for the next man to step up. For TCU,...

Grading the Horned Frogs offense – offensive line

At first glance, TCU's offensive line for this upcoming season looks unproven. Joseph Noteboom, who started all 13 games in 2015, is the only returning starter for the Horned Frogs. However there is more to this offensive line that meets the eye. While Noteboom is the only starter, he is not the only player with starting experience. Towards the end...

Grading the Horned Frogs offense – receivers

The question everyone wants to know is how good will TCU's receiving corps be without Josh Doctson? The good news is the Horned Frogs got a small taste of what life without Doctson is like, as he would miss the final three games of the 2015 season with a wrist injury. In those three games TCU managed a 2-1 record including a...
