    I already liked our chances for this game, but this certainly hurts TCU.

    How many starters were kicked off the team for the drug deal?

    Not only did we just lose our leading rusher from last season we lost our 2nd leading rusher from last season in august for "family reasons" (grades). Matthew Tucker, a senior who has over 2000 career yards rushing, will now be the starting RB. This sucks. Two months ago I would have put our RB trio up against anybody in the nation. Now we have a lot of inexperience. Aundre Dean (UCLA transfer; Parade High School All American) has not played much since he got to campus a few years ago and BJ Catalon is a true freshman (rated #3 RB in the state of Texas last year). Hopefully we will be able to keep up the running game, but I fear we have become slightly more one dimensional.

    Re: TCU Running Back Waymon James out for season

    And we lost 4 our 5 players from the drug bust. Starting offensive lineman, starting defensive lineman, starting linebacker (all american), and a defensive back who was never going to play anyway. Hurt us pretty bad.

    You guys joined the league a year too late it seems.

    He's just butthurt because he came into our house demanding respect and didn't get it. Now he's doing all he can to try to get under our skin.

    Seriously? Classless as you say you "hate" TCU. Because... you couldn't get in? TCU is a really nice school with what as a reason to hate them? What the hell is wrong with some people. Go back to your own f'ing board. Or to TCU's and pick fights idiot - since you hate them so much. OR, better yet - get a job.

    Re: TCU Running Back Waymon James out for season

    Sucks for TCU. I've always liked TCU (even though a conf. rival now I still like I can see ISU this year only 20 min. away)

    They'll bounce back, but this sounds like a tough road ahead this year.

    I still seeing them winning 7 games. No conference title this year for TCU.

    Your third string rusher has over 2000 career yards? Here I thought we were deep at running back! Sucks to lose guys to injury but if that's the case it looks like you guys won't be hurting too badly on this one.

    Re: TCU Running Back Waymon James out for season

    Iowa has shown you can have a running game with limited talent at running back as long as you have a decent, disciplined O-Line and good blocking schemes. Heck, they had a walk on, who had two carries last year get over 100-yds in their last game.

    A good O-line can make average RB's look great; not so vise-versa.
