TCU redshirt senior T Joseph Noteboom accepted an invite to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Noteboom has started the last three years for the Horned Frogs, and he's been named to the Academic All-Big 12 during that time as well. He's currently projected to be a late round draft pick or undrafted free agent, but his size and smarts could see him become a Day 3 pick if he performs well at the event.

Four-star RB Fabian Franklin decommitted from Mississippi State and has verbally committed to TCU.

Franklin is one of several highly-recruited players who have announced their decision to decommit from the school following Dan Mullen's departure from the school. A five-foot-11, 200-pound tailback, Franklin is rated the 11th best at the position on ESPN, and 14th on 247 Sports. His scouting reports detail that while not necessarily the fastest runner, he has excellent feet and vision. He could be a candidate to play early for the Horned Frogs.

TCU redshirt senior QB Kenny Hill completed 27-of-37 passes for 234 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 41-17 loss to Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship Game.

Hill was fine, if unspectacular, in the contest, but TCU's offense was more or less shut down on the ground and their passing game just doesn't have enough explosive aspects to match Oklahoma score for score. While the end result, here, was a disappointing one for the Horned Frogs, we've seen Hill at his best for most of the campaign. He finished up throwing just six interceptions (after leading the conference with 13 picks a year ago) and played much more within himself on the whole than in 2016.
Dec 2 - 4:58 PM

TCU redshirt senior RB Kyle Hicks rushed for 51 yards on 13 carries in Saturday's 41-17 loss to Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship Game.

Just an awful game for Hicks in what's been a disappointing season. Not only did he do next-to-nothing on the ground in the contest, the redshirt senior also had a bad fumble early in the first quarter which was returned for a touchdown by Oklahoma. A year after rushing for 1,032 yards and 12 touchdowns, Hicks has managed just 616 yards and four scores across 11 games for the current campaign. He has failed to notch a 100-yard game this year.
Dec 2 - 4:46 PM

TCU freshman DT Ross Blacklock was named Big 12 co-Freshman Defensive Player of the Year.

Blacklock (6'3/326) was a four-star recruit for the past cycle. He's put up 22 tackles (4.5 for loss) and a pair of sacks this season. The Missouri City, Texas, native shares this fresh Big 12 honor with Oklahoma LB Kenneth Murray.
Nov 30 - 5:56 PM

TCU HC Gary Patterson would not rule out the possibility that sophomore RB Darius Anderson (leg) could return for bowl play.

Patterson said that there's at least an outside chance that Anderson might be healthy enough for bowl action. The 5-foot-11, 205-pounder was initially ruled out for the remainder of the campaign after injuring his right leg against Oklahoma on Nov. 11. Prior to sustaining that injury, the true sophomore back had rushed for 768 yards (6.0 YPC) and eight touchdowns over the course of 10 games played. He did a fantastic job helping to fill in for an injured Kyle Hicks early in the season and kept it going even after Hicks' return, at least until he was undone by the injury concern.
Nov 28 - 5:25 PM

TCU senior LB Travin Howard (undisclosed) is expected to play in Saturday's Big 12 Championship Game, according to HC Gary Patterson.

Howard is the team's leading tackler, but has missed the last two weeks with the undisclosed injury. The Horned Frogs are also expected to bring back defensive back Niko Small against the Sooners.
Nov 27 - 3:15 PM

The Big 12 has suspended TCU senior S Nick Orr for the first half of next weekend's Big 12 Championship Game against Oklahoma.

Orr (5'10/187) will sit out the first half due to his involvement in a scuffle in the second half of Saturday's win over Baylor. The senior safety was seen throwing punches during the fracas. It's not a minor loss for the Horned Frogs, as Orr is a starter for the team. Markell Simmons could potentially see an expanded workload filling in against Oklahoma for the first two quarters. Orr has recorded 59 tackles, two interceptions and five passes defended this season.
Nov 26 - 3:22 PM

Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby will review the altercation between TCU and Baylor on Friday.

Every single player on both teams were given unsportsmanlike conduct penalties after the fracas ensued. This isn't big news for Baylor; who are done after a one-win season, but it could be big for TCU, who is going to play Oklahoma next weekend for the Big 12 championship. If Bowlsby and the conference deem it necessary, there could be Horned Frog players that are suspended for that game against the Sooners.

TCU signed HC Gary Patterson to a contract extension through the 2024 season.

It's been a very, very nice Thanksgiving weekend for Patterson, who had just led TCU to a berth in the Big 12 Championship Game against Oklahoma next weekend courtesy of a 45-22 win over Baylor on Friday when the extension was announced. His previous contract had been set to expire following the 2022 season. Monetary terms attached to the new deal have not yet been disclosed.
Nov 24 - 4:25 PM

TCU redshirt senior RB Kyle Hicks rushed for 11 yards and a touchdown on 10 carries in Friday's 45-22 win over Baylor.

Hicks did punch the ball in from four yards out to give the Horned Frogs their first points of the game with 9:02 remaining in the first quarter, but he was otherwise a complete non-factor on Friday. Sewo Olonilua ultimately led the team in rushing with 71 yards and a score on 10 carries. We were hopeful that Hicks would make a strong statement as TCU's clear-cut No. 1 option at running back following the loss of Darius Anderson to a right foot injury, but following a respectable 81-yard performance against Texas Tech last weekend, he failed to impress on Friday. A committee approach could be coming in the Big 12 Championship Game next weekend.
Nov 24 - 4:21 PM

TCU redshirt senior QB Kenny Hill completed 26-of-36 passes for 325 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for an additional score in Friday's 45-22 win over Baylor.

Hill missed TCU's win over Texas Tech last weekend due to a concussion, but he looked no worse for the wear in Friday's victory. Indeed, this showing was one of his sharpest of the year as a passer. The 6-foot-1, 205-pound redshirt senior finishes the regular season having thrown for 2,604 yards with a 19/5 TD/INT ratio. He'll lead the Horned Frogs into a rematch with Oklahoma in the Big 12 Championship Game next weekend. The Sooners came away with a 38-20 win in the initial match-up between the two teams a couple of weekends ago.
Nov 24 - 3:59 PM

TCU freshman QB Shawn Robinson (undisclosed) will not be available in Friday's game against Baylor.

Kenny Hill is back from the concussion that forced Robinson into starting action against Texas Tech last weekend, so the true freshman's absence on Friday does not figure to have an impact on this Black Friday showdown with the Bears unless Hill is forced out injured again. Grayison Muehlstein will work as No. 2 QB for the Horned Frogs in this one.
Nov 24 - 12:14 PM

TCU redshirt senior QB Kenny Hill (concussion) is warming up with the first team in advance of Friday's game against Baylor.

Hill sat out last Saturday's win over Texas Tech while on the mend from a concussion. He looks to be good to go against the Bears barring a late setback. Shawn Robinson, who started in his place versus the Red Raiders, is not expected to be available to back Hill on Friday due to an undisclosed injury. Should Hill be forced out, Grayson Muehistein would come on in his place.
Nov 24 - 11:58 AM

TCU freshman QB Shawn Robinson (undisclosed) is questionable for Friday's game against Baylor.

Robinson started in place of Kenny Hill (concussion) in Saturday's win over Texas Tech, but was dinged up in the victory. The Horned Frogs are hopeful that Hill will be able to start versus Baylor, which would push the true freshman back to his traditional backup role regardless of health. We should receive some clarity as to the TCU quarterbacking situation in the leadup to this Black Friday kickoff. If neither can play, it would force third-stringer Grayson Muehlstein into the fire.
