With their running game, they might not need to throw a single pass. 350 yards against Ole Miss.

I don't know when I'll ever sleep again.
I watched the first half and the first half of the third quarter, and I was thoroughly unimpressed. Kansas ran all over them when I watched, their RBs averaged 4.1 yards per carry. I thought TCU's defense was going to be its strong point, but if Kansas can do that I would expect to be able to do at least the same.
Their passing was efficient and high percentage but it was mostly dink and dunk and I think our defense can handle their offense. Their QB is accurate but not a great athlete and does not have a particularly strong arm from what I could tell.
And remember, this was all against Kansas in the least impressive home atmosphere in the Big 12 at the moment.
At the very least I am not sold on them, and certainly not as #16 in the country.
TU scares me less than they did beforehand now; however, they still might be a problem...
(1) they have this really good habit of playing just above the level of their competition
(2) they are small but really fast--not a great match-up for us on that one
(3) ugly, stupid uniforms, but that's what you get with purple and black and that number font
(4) probably better than us, if not significantly so, but not insurmountably so
I still think they're odds on favorite to beat us in Ft. Worth, but it should be a good game. 30%-40% chance against them.
