TCU Horned Frogs College Football Betting

At the onset of the 2021 season was plenty of optimism for TCU. Coach Gary Patterson raved about how much he loved his team’s potential. But from the start, the Horned Frogs were off the mark. And this continued a pattern of inconsistency that has plagued the program for the past four seasons. As the season progressed, Patterson became more frustrated. Consider his odd rants about various topics, such as SMU inciting a brawl after beating the Horned Frogs on their home field. Among other bizarre comments.

Finally, after TCU was mauled at Kansas State, Patterson’s alma mater, TCU decided to force Patterson into retirement. Although he was asked to coach the last month of the season, Patterson declined. Respected assistant and former Minnesota head coach Jerry Kill was tasked with getting TCU into a bowl game. Kill, and the Frogs were routed at Iowa State to end that fantasy. Now comes Sonny Dykes from SMU to take over as full-time head coach.

Gary Patterson leaves as the GOAT of TCU coaches. He built a program that became so good it was able to graduate to multiple leagues. Finally, the Horned Frogs ended up in the Power Five Big 12 Conference. Patterson led TCU to a Rose Bowl win over Wisconsin. He made the Horned Frogs into a perennial top ten national contender and a near miss for the 2014 College Football Playoff.

Patterson would often brag that he could recruit within a 15-minute radius of his home. And in the talent-rich city of Fort Worth and its surrounding suburbs, he was not exaggerating. But as the years progressed, recruiting took a dip, and it seemed that Patterson had a more difficult time relating to younger players.

Also, Patterson struggled with the new college football landscape of name image and likeness and the transfer portal. For old-school coaches, such issues are difficult to comprehend. And as the losses mounted, Patterson no longer had the fig leaf of winning that sustained him in the past.
