Nobody's going to blame TCU too much if they have a letdown game against Colorado State this week after knocking off Boise State in a game the Mountain West moved to Idaho to avoid just such a result. And that appears to be exactly what we have, with the Frogs leading 13-3 at the half.
And it's not like the box score tells a much different story. TCU's been outgained 179-158, Casey Paschall has completed less than 50 percent of his passes. About the only good number for the Frogs is their 126 yards rushing, including Antoine Hicks' two-yard dash for a touchdown. But the theme of the week seems to be surviving -- and if TCU does that, they'll win the Mountain West Conference before heading on to bigger things.
