Texas Tech vs. TCU 2012: Frog fans rue missed opportunities

The Texas Tech Red Raiders prevailed over the TCU Horned Frogs in triple overtime, 56-53, in what may have been the craziest game in all of college football on Saturday. It was a gut-wrenching loss for Horned Frog fans, including those at SB Nation's TCU blog, Frogs O' War:

The reason TCU lost this game is because of missed opportunities. I counted three times that a TCU cornerback/Safety got both hands on the ball and didn't hang onto it, and two of those drives turned into Tech touchdowns. TCU drove into Tech territory again and again with consistency throughout the game, but when the field got short the Frogs got conservative (understandable given our red zone turnover issues) and ended up kicking field goals.

However, some chose to see the positives in the loss, and are encouraged by what taking a Top 25 team to triple overtime means for next year's version of the Frogs:

So Texas Tech is a top-half team in the Big 12, and TCU took 'em to three overtimes, playing sixteen true freshmen. This is good news for 2013. Imagine how this game would have gone if Nykiren Wellington or Ty Horn or Tanner Brock or Matt Anderson or Travoskey Garrett or D.J. Yendrey or Waymon James had been playing...
