    TCU's Big 12 debut: What did you think?

    Won 20-6 over Kansas yesterday in their Big 12 opener on the road at Kansas. What do you guys think?

    This game was very close basically all game before getting comfortable late. TCU QB looks pretty good. I am not impressed with Dane Crist from KU.

    TCU's run defense looks pretty stifling, but KU still put up a lot of yards passing.

    Overall, i wasn't very impressed. Quite honestly, i think they will have a losing record In-Conference.

    Obviously there were probably some nerves there being on the road in their first Big 12 game ever, but i was still expecting a bigger spread in the score, and winning at TCU will probably be much more difficult than it would be at home.

    Turnovers made it closer than it should have been for TCU.

    TCU is a good team, but turnovers made the score look closer than the actual game. TCU is going to be a tough team to beat.

    Haven't watched the DVR yet, but read that TCU ran through that defense all game long.

    I was floored that this score was that close.

    TCU's D is very small. Hopefully we can dominate them physically up front and score a bunch of points.

    Their skill players looked pretty decent though

    TCU looked like we did against Iowa. Take out a few bonehead turnovers and they run away with the game, despite playing an average game overall.

    Re: TCU's Big 12 debut: What did you think?

    What I got out of that game is I'm not nearly as scared of TCU as I was before the game. I still have a healthy amount of respect for them as it ain't going to be an easy game, but we can win that game.

    Looks like TCU is just another opponent...not as intimidating as I expected.
    Looks like we have a chance in our games this year. Our toughest go may be WVU and its speed.

    I feel pretty confident saying our toughest game will be in Austin Texas.

    It appears that way. He completed 15 consecutive passes at one point vs Ole Miss. Texas has a nasty defense too. Im not looking forward to our Austin trip.
