ESPN GameDay at TCU

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

ESPN GameDay finally decided it was time to highlight the TCU Horned Frogs, the team playing the best all around football in the NCAA. Nationally the Frogs are ranked 4th in every poll including the BCS. Friend of The HornedBlog, Bob Goode, took some pix the day before the game as ESPN The Roadies were setting up their traveling city.

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

SWAGLESS Hat Trick Plus One

Posted by SuckaFish

Yesterday was the first time ever, and it probably won’t happen again for a long time. Caps, Terps, Natinals, and Horned Frogs all win on the same day.

Horned Frogs Rise to #11 AP; #10 Coaches Poll

Once again, the nation, including The New York Times is taking notice of the TCU Horned Frogs and other possible BCS busters:


….In fact, Houston, Texas Christian and Boise State are not going anywhere. For the first time in the Bowl Championship Series era, teams from outside the six so-called power conferences can be considered legitimate threats for the national title.

Clemson Favored by 3? Bet the Farm!

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?”

TCU Rescinds Henson’s Degree

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

BREAKING NEWS: TCU has rescinded the degree previously presented to Robert Henson, former All-MWC linebacker now on the Washington Redskins roster. The university cited Mr. Henson’s series of 52 Twitter postings following the Redskins’ “game” against the Rams Sunday as reported in this front page story in the Washington Post.

“TCU has been embarrassed too much by Mr. Henson’s behavior,” said Associate Chancellor Ben Downtoolong. “We can understand a lack of forethought by his tweeting disrespectfully to the fans who indirectly pay his salary — a salary which is already in excess of anyone on the TCU staff with the exception of the volleyball coach and all other coaches in our athletic department.

Killer Frogs defense, offense smother UVA

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

Don’t let the score fool you. At 30-14, TCU’s victory over Virginia wasn’t that close. It was 30-0 with five minutes to go. The first team Horned Frogs defense held UVA to 73 yards total offense and gave up only four first downs in the first three quarters before retiring for the day. Nine Frogs had 203 yards rushing to go with Andy Dalton’s passing, 15-of-21 — to nine receivers — for 177 yards and one touchdown.

TCU’s LT Predicts Return to Form at 30

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

The incomparable LaDainian Tomlinson, a TCU legend, assesses his chances of regaining form for the Chargers after a subpar year plagued by injuries in a column by Tim Sullivan in the San Diego Union-Tribune. At 30, he predicts he won’t have the decline that has happened for most RB’s. Phillip Rivers says LT looks as good as ever and expects a great year from the man who many consider the best all around RB in NFL history. And don’t forget, LT still had 1,100+ yards last year, which would still be a career year for 99 percent of the NFL RB’s.
