Life after Casey Pachall: TCU analysts react to loss of QB

While Casey Pachall could be back with TCU sometime in the future, Jamie Plunkett at Frogs O' War isn't waiting for a comeback.

And just like that, a promising collegiate career, and possible NFL stardom, came crashing to the ground, for now. I have my doubts that Casey will return to TCU in the spring, but I'm sure he will land somewhere. However, for now, TCU must move forward without its budding star, and the reigns of this team are firmly in the hands of redshirt freshman Trevone Boykin.

Plunkett wrote Boykin, who was 23-of-40 for 270 yards in his first start against Iowa State last week, will have some growing pains as he assumes Pachall's role, but he's optimistic for his future. Plunkett noted that former TCU quarterback Andy Dalton, who is now the Cincinnati Bengals' starter, threw more interceptions than touchdowns (11 to 10) in his first season.

The defense is even more important now, Plunkett wrote, but "at the rate they're playing right now, that doesn't exactly inspire confidence in me."
