I think we've found a kicker.

So who would have guessed a FG would be the clincher with two minutes to go?
I don't believe we could have opened worse than we did, but still won. That is a good position to be in.

Coaches will have LOTS to address, including lining players up on D on OUR side

Don't you just love the three-man rush? Let's give the other team all kinds of time to throw so we can let them back in the game.

Protection assignments were terrible directly impacting two turnovers and getting Shane hit. I expect a tougher SMU team in a month from now. TCU might not benefit from a delayed SMU date.

Good to win but it was ugly. Between the bad pass pro and having a fumble and blindside block penalty take two TDs off the board it could have been much easier but a W is a W.

For once our kicking game caused no ulcers. Well, maybe punting did.

If our LBs continue to not fill the gaps, then Stevie Wonder would be able to run through those lanes.

So except for not being strong against the pass or run, I agree, 3 man front is here to stay.

Naggar's 16 yard punt was not helpful, but our Aussie punter dropped both of his inside the 20.

I am pleased to have a placekicker that can placekick.
