Following a brutal loss against Kansas State, TCU Football now finds themselves sitting at 3-3 at the halfway point of the season, with some of the top teams in the Big 12 still remaining on the schedule.
TCU Football has really struggled since their loss to SMU, as their loss to Kansas St. has dropped them to .500 on the season, and they have now lost three of their last four games. Needing just three wins in their last six games to make a bowl game, things are still not looking too good for the Horned Frogs.
With games at home against Texas, Baylor, and West Virginia, and Oklahoma, Oklahoma St., and Texas Tech on the road, TCU Football has an uphill battle ahead of them to become bowl eligible this season. The hope for the Horned Frogs is that they will be able to pull off road wins in Stillwater and Lubbock, and a home win against the Mountaineers. All three of those teams are currently below them in the Big 12 standings, as they have one more loss in the conference.
TCU’s offense has struggled mightily so far this season, as there have consistently been struggles ranging from bad offensive play calling to poor blocking to the wide receivers being incapable of catching a football.

If TCU does figure things out, they could become a dangerous team. They likely will not see action in a New Years Six, or even the Big 12 Championship, but if they got hot and finished winning five of their next six and pulling off some major upsets, they could possibly sneak into the Alamo Bowl so they can show off some more second half heroics.
Last season, after a brutal loss to Kansas, TCU Football rallied in a big way, as they went from 3-5 to win three of their last four to become bowl eligible. Currently the Horned Frogs are going to have to fight hard to get the three wins needed, but if anyone has learned something about teams coaching by Gary Patterson – they do not quit, and will keep fighting until the final whistle of the season, whether they win 12 games, or 4.
Fortunately for the Horned Frogs, it appears as if they have found their quarterback of the future in Max Duggan, even if they fail to make a bowl game with Duggan running the show, he should develop into the leader that the team has been searching for, and can lead the team for years to come, like Andy Dalton.

Even though the Horned Frogs have been tough to watch at times this season, they should be an interesting team to keep up with for the rest of the season, as they could potentially pull off some upsets as the season goes on, maybe starting this weekend in a home matchup against the Longhorns.
