Horned Frogs Escape Death Valley with Big W

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

With QB Andy Dalton carrying the Horned Frogs on his shoulders, TCU’s 14th-ranked Horned Frogs went into Clemson’s famed Death Valley, fought the Tigers in a driving rain, and came out with a big 14-10 victory. Dalton was 17-26 passing for 226 yards and both TDs. He was also TCU’s leading rusher with 86 yards on 19 carries, a 4.5 yard average.

TCU is now 3-0 on the season and 3-0 against the oddsmakers’ spreads.

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

“Honey, I know you were planning on retiring to the farm eventually, but we might have a much bigger one by then, because I just bet it on the football game Saturday.

“The oddsmakers in Vegas have favored Clemson by three points over our Horned Frogs. The RPI ratings have TCU at number 6 and Clemson at 42. Now how does that translate into a 3-point victory for Clemson?”

Chef Patterson’s Chili Defense

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

TCU Coach Gary Patterson gets top billing in the New York Times examination of how defenses have tried to cope with the proliferation of ever-changing spread offenses in college football. With the NCAA’s number one defense three times in nine years, including 2008, Patterson is cited as “one of the foremost defensive minds in college football,” a “sideline savant,” and a “defensive innovator” who has a “flair for improvisation” with such “unconventional formations” as his 4-2-5. His emphasis is on developing speedy, versatile athletes who can react and hit.
