TCU vs. Oklahoma State 2012: Analyzing 'an ugly, ugly game'

The TCU Horned Frogs dropped their second straight game but unlike last week's triple overtime game against Texas Tech, Saturday's game wasn't even close.

TCU jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead before allowing 36 unanswered to Oklahoma State with the Horned Frogs' offense going 2-for-14 on third down. As one might expect, the fine gentlemen over at Frogs O' War weren't too ecstatic about the results when they took another look at the game for some good old fashioned postgame analysis.

Contributor Hawkeyed Frog called the Big-12 battle "an ugly, ugly game" and one that was "very reminiscent of the Iowa State game" from earlier in the year. Hawkeyed Frog did believe that the game could have went much differently though if the Horned Frogs were able to get it going early:

"TCU failed to capitalize on its early success. Two possessions in Okie State territory on each side of the Olabode interception of Lunt resulted in no points, as the Frogs went backwards after recovering a fumble on a kickoff return. Think the game turns out differently if TCU's lead was 21-0 or 20-0? Absolutely."

Jamie Plunkett went on to say that the Horned Frogs' offense was "the worst thing I've seen on a football field since I watched the Cowboys game last week."

Ouch. If you haven't heard enough, pay a visit to Frogs O' War for some more dedicated coverage of the Horned Frogs.
