TCU Vs. Kansas 2012: TCU Fans Saw Both Good And Bad In The Kansas Win

TCU won its first-ever Big 12 game on Saturday, defeating the Kansas Jayhawks 20-6. The game wasn't the prettiest victory that TCU has had in the last several seasons, and fans of the No. 16 Horned Frogs saw both good and bad in the performance. First, the good:

TCU moved the ball at will, gobbling the Jayhawks up on the ground and in the air and they stymied the Kansas rushing game. Two of Casey's fumbles were flukey- being hit while throwing and a snap that flew through his legs, so there's no serious cause for alarm in the long term. TCU clamped down on the TCU passing game in the second half, and though Crist did have some success downfield he completed less than 50% of his passes and we'll take that every day. The defense also did a good job in bending, but not breaking- keeping Kansas out of the end zone all game, and we won on the road.

Now for the bad:

The third fumble was all on Casey (Pachall), though the defense didn't break, it did bend more than we like to see- the defense got gashed by the Kansas running game early (Weis may have outsmarted himself by going away from it in the second half, or Patterson may have just given him looks that he didn't like the looks of running into- I'll check the tape) and we missed a short field goal. Worst of all, Waymon James looked like he may have hurt his knee at the end of the game, so we'll be left worrying about that for the next few days at least.

The Frogs will be hosting the Virginia Cavaliers on Saturday, Sept. 22 in their next outing. The Cavaliers come into the game at 2-1, having lost to Georgia Tech on Saturday, 56-20.
