Frog Facts


So, I received a copy of the TCU media guide yesterday, and after skimming through it, figured I'd share some facts for the upcoming season as well as some historical facts of the Frogs. Thanks for whoever put these stats together in order to make this much easier. The book is filled with all sorts of statistical goodies, so if you are interested in something, ask and I'll see if it's in there.

Returning/Lost Starters:
Total Returning/Lost  13/14
Offense                     6/6
Defense                     5/6
Specialist                   2/2

Offense Returning: WR Josh Boyce, WR Skye Dawson, OG Blaize Foltz, C James Fry, QB Casey Pachall, TB Matthew Tucker.
Defense Returning: LB Kenny Cain, DE Ross Forrest, DT David Johnson, DE Stansly Maponga, CB Jason Verrett

Before the 1930s, there was only one other decade that we had a losing record, the 1900s (23-34-6). Wow, we really sucked in the 70s and 80s. Drugs.

Answer: Tank Carder?

BuckNasty said...

cheater. too easy? k. Which QB had the most interceptions in a game and how many? (all time, not during patterson era.)

Tanner said...

How has the term Taint (Touchdown.After.INTerception = t.a.int.) not caught on?

VikingFrog said...

Tank Carder had a great TAINT under Gary Patterson

LOLfolding said...

Can someone explain some of the statistics that aren't intuitive?
- Why are "Score first" and "Opp score first" not inverse of each other?
- Same question for lead/trail at half.

That UT number needs to start turning. That's disgusting.

BuckNasty said...

Well, we have only lost 30 times under Gary.

I remember Andy Dalton throwing about 5 to Air Force his freshman year but I doubt that is the winner.

RicketyFrog said...

Don't know/care about the taint trivia...I'm just stunned we've played Baylor for 107 years and counting.

FrogHorn07 said...

We really only have a winning record against the Kansas schools? Over the next two decades this needs to change.

SnK said...

Are people really that unaware of the fact that we sucked prior to Fran for decades? No cares what our all time records look like. What have you done for me lately?

Sir Wesley Willis said...

SnK - 3/4 of our fanbase did not know TCU played football before 1997. It's true.

SnK said...

Touché.
