TCU Horned Frogs Football Details
TCU has won two national championships in program history (1935, 1938), and the school has also claimed 18 conference titles. The Horned Frogs are currently coached by Gary Patterson, who has been nothing but excellent since arriving in Fort Worth. Heading into the 2017 season, Patterson was 149-53 in 17 full seasons as the team’s head coach. The Horned Frogs are 9-6 in bowl games under Patterson, and they also happened to have a perfect season in 2010. That year, TCU went 13-0 and defeated Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl. Andy Dalton was quarterbacking the Horned Frogs that season, and he now spends his Sundays as the starter under center for the Cincinnati Bengals.
Much like when Dalton was under center in 2010, the Horned Frogs have a guy they can trust as quarterback this season as well. That would be senior Kenny Hill, who threw for 17 touchdowns and rushed for 10 in 2016. Hill was a big-time transfer from Texas A&M, where he threw for 23 touchdowns and only eight picks in 2014. He has a big arm and the ability to make plays with his legs, and he is a major reason this offense is so difficult to plan against. Another guy worth pointing out is wide receiver KaVontae Turpin. Turpin played through injuries in 2016, but he is capable of beating teams as a runner, receiver and kick returner. He should be in for some big things in the remainder of his college career. At the very least, he’ll thrill the fans that come out to support the Horned Frogs at Amon G. Carter Stadium.
