    In last year’s TCU preview, I proclaimed that my numbers were being too pessimistic, that after an unlucky 2015, Gary Patterson’s Horned Frogs were a top-15 squad and dark horse Big 12 contender. I was convinced of this despite the loss of star quarterback Trevone Boykin, receiver Josh Doctson, and three all-conference linemen.
