Ya, it's a bit sobering. TCU is good but not great this year. In game 2, that's the level we were at. That being said, I see no reason to think that CBB's pattern of improvement every week is not happening this year. If anything, I would say the growth has been accelerated. By game 2, we were good enough to soundly beat them for more than three quarters in their house. Our defense finally had success against a bad offensive match up for them, but they wore down late. This is game 4, and the players are much more accustomed to HUNH teams. What better way to improve than by going against three increasingly fast offenses in the first three games?
We also got an added bonus last weekend when our starters got some rest, both mentally and physically, and the coaches got to use a real game to work out some of the remaining kinks. Speaking of which, let's not forget that this is the first year CBB has returned both coordinators, and this is an upperclassmen heavy team. These guys all know what is expected of them, and they have the leadership on the team and the staff to keep focused. We've barely scratched the surface of what these boys can do.
X Factor/ Added bonus:
Nothing brings a team closer together than winning, especially when it's done in an exciting/epic fashion like what happened in weeks 1 and 2. I think we have a very good shot tomorrow.
Btw, TCU 33-3 in the 4th.
