Virginia Vs. TCU 2012: Frogs O' War Breaks Down the TCU Victory

In the wake of the Horned Frogs' 27-7 win over Virginia on Saturday, SB Nation TCU blog Frogs o' War found a few positives before crying havoc:

I'm glad TCU won. I'm glad TCU upped its third down conversions substantially. I'm glad Trey Boykin got more meaningful snaps, and I'm glad Olabode came back into the game after needing help up. (Any word on Jonathan Anderson?) I'm glad Joel Hasley has come to play.

But if TCU were a stock, I'd be selling, shorting, abandoning, cashing, etc. as fast as I could.

This team will be lucky even to make a bowl game this year. I say that carefully-- "this team" can still improve enough to be a better team, to be "that team" that wins 7 or 8 and is set up very well to contend for very big things next year. But this team isn't that team, and without some serious improvement-- and quickly-- this team is going to sink this season, beginning in two weeks.

Frogs o' War cited the continued fumbling as a concern, though they also praised the play of the defensive secondary and wide receiver Brandon Carter.

TCU returns to action Saturday in their annual showdown with SMU for the Iron Skillet.
