How TCU's Boykin went from afterthought to Heisman contender

FORT WORTH, Texas - Trevone Boykin never wanted to be anything but a quarterback. Pop Warner. Junior high. High school. The inclination was ever-rigid. All that time, Boykin was quick enough and fast enough to play receiver or running back or defensive back and was quick to let childhood friends and teammates like Gary Owens know it. In between trash talk about how his hands were...

Quarterbacks in the spotlight for TCU, WVU matchup

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) Most improved is a label that certainly fit quarterbacks Clint Trickett of West Virginia and Trevone Boykin of TCU.

Yet, he's not sure where to start on how the 10th-ranked Horned Frogs turned into the nation's most improved offense in points scored and yards. ''People play better, your quarterback plays better,'' Patterson said this...

Can QB experience crack Big 12's title drought?

Good riddance, learner's permits. So long, peach fuzz. The Big 12 has been a quarterback-driven league for the past decade, but last year's fresh-faced crop may have a more grizzled look this time around. At least I hope so.  16-7? 20-10? 20-17?   The league that staked its claim as college football's home for fast-paced offense took a bit of a siesta last year, but it wasn't surprising...

Fields Of (And In) Trouble For TCU

It is easy to say that TCU’s football program has not succeeded in the Big 12 because the league offers a level of competition not found in the Horned Frogs’ previous home, the Mountain West Conference. (The school joined the Big East, of course, but never played a game in that league.) To an extent, that statement is true, but it doesn’t tell the whole story. TCU players have...
