TCU HC Gary Patterson was named the Walter Camp Foundation's 2014 Coach of the Year.

This is Patterson's fourth postseason award, following the Associated Press, Big 12 and Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year trophies. It's been quite an off-season -- he's also reached agreement with the school on a new contract. Patterson, of course, led TCU to an 11-1 record one year after going 4-8. TCU finished No. 6 in the final College Football Playoff standings.

NFL.com named TCU redshirt junior QB Trevone Boykin as the No. 1 2015 Heisman contender

"He made huge strides this season under the tutelage of new co-coordinators Doug Meacham and Sonny Cumbie," wrote Mike Huguenin. "If he makes the same kind of strides next season, monster numbers await. And he put up some eye-catching numbers as it was this season, throwing for 3,714 yards and 30 TDs and running for 642 yards and eight more scores. Hmmm -- what about 4,000 yards and 35 or so TDs through the air next season, along with 750 rushing yards and at least 10 TDs? He finished fourth in the Heisman voting this season and probably will be the highest finisher to return to school." Boykin is followed in the rankings, in order, by Ohio State QB J.T. Barrett, Mississippi St. QB Dak Prescott, USC QB Cody Kessler and Michigan State QB Connor Cook.

TCU senior CB Kevin White accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Ready for some Kevin White-on-Kevin White crime during Senior Bowl week? Scouts certainly are, and West Virginia's White is one of several stud receiving prospects TCU's White will be tasked with covering in practice and the game. TCU's Kevin White (5-foot-10, 174 pounds) is graded by CBS as a Rds. 4-5 prospect.

TCU HC Gary Patterson was named the Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year.

It's the second time Patterson has won the award. "I’d like to thank the Football Writers Association of America," Patterson said in a statement released by the FWAA Monday afternoon. "I’m very honored and humbled to be a part of such a great award and the man it represents." The only other coaches to win the award at twice are Nick Saban, Lou Holtz, Darrell Royal, John McKay and Johnny Majors, while Woody Hayes and Joe Paterno took home the trophy three times.

TCU redshirt junior WR Josh Doctson "has the height and catching radius that jumps off the film," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"Doctson has been both a reliable target as well as the main playmaker with three multi-touchdown games this year. Still only a junior, Docton has the height and catching radius that jumps off the film with long-striding speed to create separation in his routes and after the catch," Brugler wrote. On the season, The 6-foot-4, 190-pound Doctson has 59 receptions for 959 yards and nine touchdowns. Assuming he returns for his senior season, Brugler thinks Doctson "will enter next season as one of the top senior prospects at the position."

TCU and Ole Miss will play in the Peach Bowl on Dec. 31.

Both teams use a number of non-seniors who will soon be prospects, but are not yet discussed on the national radar. Few quarterbacks have developed more than Trevone Boykin since last season, as he now wins inside and outside of structure. TCU linebacker Paul Dawson might be a top three prospect at the position, but does not receive enough attention.

TCU finished No. 6 in the final College Football Playoff standings.

Jeff Long, the Selection Committee Chair, said Baylor was moved ahead of TCU due to the Bears' heads-up win earlier in the season. In the end, it didn't matter, as the committee spurned both Big 12 candidates in favor of Ohio State. The Horned Frogs -- as well as various sects of the media -- are a bit miffed that the school dropped from No. 3 to No. 6 in the final poll after they annihilated Iowa State 55-3 on Saturday. "To control our destiny, we needed to be undefeated," TCU HC Gary Patterson said after the standings were announced. Patterson did express surprise at his school's drop from No. 3 to 6.

Dec 7 - 2:34 PM

TCU redshirt junior QB Trevone Boykin completed 30 of 41 attempts for 460 yards, four touchdowns and one interception in the school's 55-3 win over Iowa State.

Boykin added another 44 yards on the ground and caught a touchdown on a 55 yard grab and go. Boykin's lone interception was on a lofted pass in the endzone, but he continued to display the development he has shown all season. The excellent athlete is winning inside of structure and obviously has the athleticism and arm to win outside of it.
Dec 6 - 3:40 PM

TCU junior RB B.J. Catalon is unlikely to play in the school's game against Iowa State.

"B.J., we’re still going to be very cautious with," head coach Gary Patterson said. Catalon has been out since the end of the West Virginia game after taking a hit on the play just before the winning field goal. TCU has a real shot to make the CFB Playoff if one of the top four teams lose.
Dec 5 - 9:42 AM

TCU redshirt senior S Sam Carter accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Carter, a former quarterback who switched positions after finding himself stuck behind Andy Dalton and Casey Pachall, has worked on his new craft enough to put himself in a position to be drafted. The 6-foot-1, 215-pounder is ranked by CBS Sports as the No. 351 overall prospect, just outside of Round 7 territory. A big postseason could help Carter get his named called in the spring.
Dec 3 - 6:05 PM

TCU junior RB B.J. Catalon did not travel to Thursday's game against Texas.

We are guessing Catalon is still dealing with an upper body injury suffered in early November. Aaron Green received 16 carries in the game. TCU faces Iowa State next, but they are making a strong case for the CFB playoff.
Nov 28 - 11:25 AM

TCU redshirt junior QB Trevone Boykin completed 20 of 34 attempts for 233 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the school's 48-10 win over Texas.

He added another 50 yards and a touchdown on the ground. Boykin is one of the most improved passers in the country this season, showing an ability to win inside and outside of structure as well as having a vertical arm. Now, those traits do not show up on a consistent basis, so until they do Boykin is merely a developmental type prospect.
Nov 28 - 9:17 AM

TCU junior RB Aaron Green had 19 carries for 128 yards and two touchdowns on Saturday.

That marks back-to-back nice starts for Green, who's rolling in place of B.J. Catalon (upper-body). He ran up the middle for a nice 24-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter, showcasing the acceleration and burst that scouts like from the runner. Green is a San Antonio native and transferred to TCU because Ameer Abdullah was blocking his path for running glory. Once Catalon returns, TCU is expected to split carries between the two backs.
Nov 15 - 8:32 PM

TCU redshirt junior QB Trevone Boykin completed 26-of-36 passes for 330 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Saturday's 34-30 win over Kansas.

The Horned Frogs struggled with a frisky Jayhawk team, but managed to escape with a win. Boykin was coming off of one of the more athletic displays by a quarterback with his 219-yard passing/123-yard rushing effort against Kansas State last week, but he was relatively quiet on Saturday. He hit a 27-yard touchdown pass three minutes into the game, but did not put it in the endzone again. Kansas held him to just two yards rushing. Boykin is as athletic as any quarterback in the country, but he's still in the process of refining his pocket passing.
Nov 15 - 8:20 PM

In the latest playoff rankings, TCU joined Mississippi State, Oregon and Florida State as part of the so-called "First Four."

Perhaps more surprising than TCU joining the grouping was that Oregon jumped over Florida State to move into second in the rankings. Alabama and Arizona State were ranked just outside of the playoff clump. Baylor, who has already beaten TCU, followed Arizona State. Should the Big-12 end in a conference tie between TCU and Baylor at the end of the season, it's possible that TCU makes the playoff while Baylor does not.
