If someone asks you to cover a song from the '60s for the soundtrack of the X-Files movie, you should probably realize it's not going to turn out well
If you're not a paid subscriber to one of the TCU recruiting websites, you're actually not missing out on much right now. Despite a third consecutive conference championship, a sparkling new stadium being built and an imminent move to the Big 12, the Frogs do not have a whole lot of recruiting steam going currently.
Arlington High's Sammy Douglas is the only player currently committed to TCU, making him (for now) the entirety of the Frogs' 2013 recruiting class. There was a time when TCU fans would be thrilled to have a player with the explosive athleticism and pure ball-hawking instincts as Douglas committed this early in the game, but times (and expectations) have changed in Fort Worth.
While GP and his staff are temporarily stuck on 1, the other programs around the state have made a bit more progress on their 2013 classes. Texas and A&M both have 13 players committed, Tech has 5, Baylor 4 and even SMU has 2. At this time last year, TCU already had 4 players committed to being part of the 2012 class.
So, Spit Blood readers, how worried are you about this situation? Are you amongst those who think that the sky is falling and that this is a reason to be legitimately worried about the future of TCU football, or are you patient and confident that Coach Patterson and his staff are superior talent evaluators and will sign another outstanding class next February?
