Home Football Big 12 Gary Patterson: TCU's talented, but .500 at best right now

Gary Patterson: TCU’s talented, but .500 at best right now

-

The TCU Horned Frogs are one of the highest ranked teams in the country going into the 2015 season. In many polls, the team is ranked number 2, just behind the Ohio State Buckeyes.

Last season, the team went 12-1, won the Peach Bowl over Ole Miss, and just missed winning the Big 12 Championship thanks to a head-to-head tiebreaker loss to the Baylor Bears. Many have picked either the Bears or Horned Frogs to get into the College Football Playoff this season, so TCU has a lot of hype to live up to.

TCU head coach Gary Patterson believes that the team still has a long way to go right now, despite having one of the more talented rosters in the nation. According to Star-Telegram, the head coach actually thinks the team may not even be in contention for a conference championship, much less a national title.

Because of the team’s youth on both sides of the ball, Patterson thinks that his team could lose a lot more games than some people have said this summer.

“We’re talented. But right now, this team’s about a .500 football team,” Patterson said. “Because of the injuries, there’s guys that possibly won’t play. And guys that have got to grow up. We’re just awful young. In the next two weeks, we’ve got to pay a lot of attention to detail.”

When Patterson says his team is “talented”, he really means it. Senior quarterback Trevone Boykin was a dark horse candidate for the Heisman Trophy last season and he currently is an early front-runner for the award this season.

If the Horned Frogs are going to compete for a spot in the CFP this season, they are going to have to get things going in the right direction. It could end badly someone if they don’t. It’s also pretty early right now, so I feel they will be just fine once September rolls around.

The Horned Frogs open the season on September 3 when they travel to Minnesota to play the Golden Gophers.
