  1. TCU’s offense is so bad, it’s going to force Gary Patterson to find a new coordinator

    By Mac Engel

    TCU fans desperately looking for something to celebrate after its Saturday loss to rival Baylor, know that your team will soon have a new offensive play-caller.

    There is no way TCU offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie will survive the offseason to return. One of the most important parts to being a successful college head coach is having a fall guy, and the 2019 TCU Horned Frogs and head coach Gary Patterson have but one candidate.

    To tie its game against Baylor and either win on a two-point conversion or send it to a fourth overtime, TCU had first and goal from the Baylor 1-yard line.

    “We were at the 1,” guard Cordel Iwaugwu said. “We have to get that. Ain’t no excuses.”

  2. While this is the thought of the message board, he just lost any chance of being a source for the program. Saying you have to have a fall guy is just irresponsible to put as a professional. This may be a new low.

    Certainly this is how a lot of people feel.

    So many what ifs in regulation ... Wells hangs on to the ball in the end zone. Sewo doesn't let a pass zip through his hands into the arms of a Baylor defender. A Patterson team actually stops a fake punt.

    Both defenses played very well.

    We should have stopped their fourth down play in 2OT.

    But that 3rd OT, inside the five twice with first and goal, have three Sewo runs into stacked fronts and then the dreaded corner throw that more times not fails. Then it unraveled. Sonny badly failed us and the team in that situation.

    I said a week ago that I believe one way or another we will have a new OC next season and I still feel that way.
  4. Will not give the author, or the Startlegram the click. I do wonder, though, just how many quotes and themes he picked up while reading the FFF?

    Rotten [ "illegitimate Baylor boy" ] probably couldn't write a thing without a lot of "help" from us...
  5. I’m just mad that Gary and his staff have produced a team so bad I find myself agreeing with a DB like Mac.
  6. I actually think that’s exactly what someone who has Mac’s job is supposed to do. I think the dude is a crap writer and most of what he puts out is garbage but how is he wrong here?
  7. Do. Not. Click. This. Dipsh@t. Please.
  8. First headline of mucks I have agreed with! I guess he does get his material from killerfrogs

  9. Great piece.

    The fade on second down was awesome.

  10. The fade on second down cost me a remote and a half hour of my life to patch and paint the damage I did to our wall with it.
  11. I have zero doubt he reads this board and wouldn’t be surprised if he’s posted before.

  15. Regrettably, the offense has become as predictable as a previously read novel....you know what is going to happen and

    the pending outcome. Woefully devoid of any enigma.
  16. As much as I hate muck's writing, he is fairly on target with much of this article.
    He points out some things that best summarize the problem with Cumbie's offense.

    "Even when TCU had the ball at the 1 yard line, Duggan was lined up in the shotgun. The ball was at the 1, but it's snapped 3 to 4 yards away from the line of scrimmage."

    Folks who love the new offenses sometimes miss this. Even on 3rd and 1, this is a bad idea.

    You put the backs in the back field and qb sneak with a push.
  17. Not saying for sure, but my guess is muck is being somewhat of a wordsmith there. He says fall guy, but the article is fairly pointing out problems that have been at the heart of the offensive troubles. And they continue. Call him a fall guy, call him not ready to be an OC, call him whatever. Just don't call him back for next year.
  18. They've definitely not given us any enigma this year. Results similar to plenty of enemas, though.

  19. I dont know what he said but the offense is so predictable that the outcome is negative even if the ball is dropped.

    It was so predictable Baylor linebackers were picking up the audibles called by the QB.

    When it went in OT I knew it was over as I knew Cumbie couldn't outcoach the competition OC. However some of that lies with the defense too. Got to make the other team kick field goals. Patterson's D didn't step up either except for the two point conversion which was big. I still think Patterson needs help on D too. Although I thought this was the best performance by the D all year long in regulation.
  20. " TCU had plenty of chances to win this game but could not because the offense was just that bad. Bad as in 67 total yards in the second half."

    So true.
