TCU Horned Frogs football has fallen on hard times, at least in Urban Meyer’s opinion.
“You go back and look at their recruiting rankings, within three hours of their campus in Fort Worth, they have the best players in America, right there,” Meyer said on FOX over the weekend, per 247Sports. “Then you have West Virginia — TCU is getting out-coached right now. (West Virginia is) doing a heck of a job. ... Just right there on paper, TCU is doing a better job, better recruiting. What in the world is going on? You know they have a great coach in Gary Patterson, but you know something is going on. My gosh, they beat Texas earlier in the year ... Is something wrong with TCU right now? They don’t look right.”

- Texas Longhorns head coach Tom Herman had a lot to say ahead of the game against the Kansas Jayhawks, per 247Sports: “Another very opportune place in our season for the bye week to come. I feel like we got a lot of work accomplished last week, both on the field and off the field, needing to rest and recover. Every bye week is a mad dash to play catch-up when you’ve got seven new coaches and a brand new offense and defensive system. Our kids have handled a tremendous amount of adversity, and I think we all really look forward to the bye weeks, not just for the day or two off that we had at the beginning and end of the week, but for the ability to just try like crazy to play catch up on all the reps, teaching and instruction and learning moments that we missed throughout the pandemic. I think our kids have handled, not just this bye week, but the one prior too really, really well and I’m very appreciative of them for that fact.” Click the link above to read the rest.
