AUSTIN — “Let’s just try to beat TCU,” Brown told them. “And the more you win, the better it gets.”
TCU’s season has just been flat-out hard. The Horned Frogs started 4-0 before starting quarterback Casey Pachall was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, got suspended and then left school for treatment at an inpatient rehabilitation facility. After playing in BCS games after the 2009 and 2010 seasons, the Horned Frogs had to overcome that adversity as well as the tougher scheduled in the Big 12.
“With everything’s that happened to us, for this team to have fought back ...to be bowl eligible is truly an accomplishment,” coach Gary Patterson said.
