This week, we are loaded with four big Week 2 questions: should Kansas be concerned with Dayne Crist, would you want Geno Smith or Colin Klein as your starting quarterback, what can Kansas expect from TCU in Week 3, and how will Texas A&M and Missouri fair in the SEC this season.
Third, Through the Phog discusses the Week 3 match-up between Kansas and TCU. TCU is new to the Big 12 conference and this will be their first Big 12 Conference game. The Horned Frogs are 1-0 entering play as the Jayhawks are 1-1.
What can the Jayhawks expect from the TCU Horned Frog in Week 3?
George: TCU is for real. Kansas should be afraid, the Horned Frogs killed Grambling State yesterday. Sure, Grambling State is a lower division team, but TCU has the talent all around the roster to run away with this game on Saturday. Casey Pachall is a very good quarterback.
Ricky: Kansas can expect to see a very good football team on Saturday. TCU might have played in the Mountain West Conference last year, but that does not mean they cannot compete with the Big 12 teams. I do not think that TCU will have a better first season than West Virginia, but it will still be a good season overall. Since 2009, the Horned Frogs have only lost three games and their record against ranked opponents in that time is 6-1. Also, 101 wins under head coach Gary Patterson.
Each week, the staff at Through the Phog will react on the previous day’s games in Big 12 football and other news that happens in the conference. We are always welcoming of comments that you might have on the topics covered each week. Our current staff includes lead editor George Pike, along with staff writer, Ricky Widmer.
