2013: 4-8 (2-7 Big 12)
One of the better college football programs in recent decades, TCU made a bowl all but one year between 1998 and 2012. They also moved from the Southwest Conference to the WAC to Conference USA to the Mountain West Conference to the Big 12 in the last 20 years. The Big 12 should be their permanent home, however; it’s the best competition they’ve ever had. So good, in fact, that they couldn’t keep up in 2013. They lost the Jerry Jones Bowl in Week 1 against #12 LSU, lost at Texas Tech, at #11 Oklahoma, at #21 Oklahoma State, vs Texas, vs West Virginia, at K-State, and vs Baylor. Their only wins against teams from the five power conferences were Kansas and Iowa State. The culprit was a dormant offense in a mediocre passing game and dismal running game. Not sure what happened to QB Casey Pachall, but his career went straight downward the last two seasons. Trevone Boykin (7 TDs, 7 INTs) was only slightly better. The receiving core was pretty balanced, but the offense in general could use an overhaul. The defense was often the only thing keeping TCU in games. But early tests come against Oklahoma and Baylor in October. Can TCU rebound from last year and get back to where they were?
The TCU Horned Frogs play in the Big 12 Conference. Previously, the Horned Frogs had been dominating the Mountain West Conference. The Horned Frogs operate under head coach Gary Patterson at Amon Carter Stadium, which holds just over 44,000 fans. White, purple, and black alma matter are all over the NFL as many players have made it, most notably LaDainian Tomlinson, Andy Dalton, and Daryl Washington. CB Jason Verrett was taken in the first round by San Diego. TCU’s banner season was in 2010 when they went 13-0, winning the Rose Bowl although they wanted a shot at the national title.
