Louisville Moving In On Nebraska Commit After Bo Pelini Was Fired

Photo: 247 Sports When a head football coach gets fired or leaves at the end of the season, other coaches around the country see that program’s recruits as fair game. That’s just the nature of college football. We saw it last year with Charlie Strong. Once he bolted for Texas, only a handful of the commitments from the 2014 class ended up signing with Louisville. Since Bo Pelini...

TCU Crushes Texas To Set Up An 11-1 Season, And It Feels Like 2011 Again

Remember the 2011 college football season? It was atypical in that it provided a regular-season rematch in the BCS National Championship Game (Alabama-LSU in the Superdome), but it was a rather normal season in this respect: The TCU Horned Frogs won a conference championship. This represented normal business for head coach Gary Patterson and the juggernaut he had formed in the Mountain...

Even in Big 12, TCU still fighting for spotlight

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) For years, TCU fought to punch their way in to the old Bowl Championship Series, having to win on the field and in the public debate over whether the Horned Frogs were worthy of such lofty status.

The past few years, the Thanksgiving night slate of college football games (usually two, sometimes only one) has not electrified the country, blessedly allowing Americans to spend more time with their loved ones (if they weren’t watching NFL games, of course).

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) Texas can spoil everything for TCU.
