TCU football's explain to being tops in Texas rings some-more and some-more true

TCU football is entrance off another 11-win deteriorate (the second in 3 years), and TCU basketball faces usually a second loyal highway diversion of a deteriorate so distant Wednesday night in Austin.

Got to meditative about all that and more, and it’s in this week’s “Three Things we Think, Three Things we Know.”

Check it out each Wednesday.

(Here is what we suspicion and knew final week).

Never skip a internal story.

Three Things we Think

1. Travin Howard is going to go down as a biggest tackler in TCU history. But his power as a leading tackler in TCU story competence not final a year. Fellow linebacker Ty Summers is 72 tackles divided from a 343 Howard posted in a career that finished dual weeks ago with his second Alamo Bowl Defensive MVP award. Summers has played in 41 games during TCU. Howard reached his tackle sum in 38 games.

2. TCU is an underrated highway group in basketball. The Horned Frogs are 7-1 in their past 8 games on neutral courts and 2-0 in their past dual loyal highway games, during Iowa and Baylor. They have won each contest they have entered solely one underneath Jamie Dixon. That was final year’s Big 12 tournament, where they reached a semifinals for a initial time interjection to a win opposite Kansas during a Sprint Center in Kansas City, that itself has to arrange somewhere between neutral and loyal road.

3. Dixon’s idea of 10 turnovers a game, or less, for TCU, is flattering lofty. Anything underneath 10 has a possibility to lead a nation. But over a past 6 games, a series is 9.8 for a Frogs. That’s tighten to one of Dixon’s best outlines during Pitt. His 2014-15 patrol ranked 10th in a nation with 9.9 turnovers a game.

Three Things we Know

1. TCU was not distant from a 3-0 start in a Big 12. Seven some-more points would have finished it (two opposite Oklahoma, 5 opposite Kansas). That’s no some-more than 4 buckets for what dual weeks ago was a nation’s second-best sharpened team. The Frogs have given dipped to 14th in that category, from 52.7 percent to 50.5. With 4 some-more buckets, they lead a Big 12 and are on a 20-game winning streak.

2. Vladimir Brodziansky has a possibility to set a TCU propagandize record in only 3 years, though it will be close. The comparison from Prievidza, Slovakia, is fourth all-time in career blocks for a Frogs, 30 bashful of James Penny’s school-record 171. TCU will play 17 some-more games during a minimum, definition Brodziansky needs 1.8 blocks per diversion for 172. He’s during 1.7 per diversion now.

3. As a representation distance gets bigger, TCU’s explain to being a best college football module in Texas rings some-more true. Since 2001, TCU has 160 wins, 6 some-more than Texas in that time. The Longhorns can play a trump label with their Vince Young inhabitant championship. But nobody else is close. Houston and Texas Tech are subsequent during 129, afterwards AM during 123. Over a scarcely 20-year duration of games by a teams in Texas, it’s TCU and UT, afterwards everybody else
