There was a formula for smaller school success- find a great coach and do what it takes to keep him. The NCAA rules regulating recruiting and limits on player transfers meant that a school with superior coaching (scouting talent as well as scheming) could punch above its weight. This formula worked for KSU (Snyder) as well as TCU (Patterson).
This has all changed. NIL means that, not only can players get paid, but college football is the only pro football league without a salary cap to limit competition for players. The transfer portal means players can move freely.
This is why Texas and OU are leaving the B12. For Texas, it came to an existential decision- embrace this new competitive environment and really go for it, or not.
Want to know TCU’s future prospects? First, tell me how competitive in NIL compensation they are.
But…it was targeting. This kind of play is what the rule is for. It’s about removing this kind of contact from the game. This is why there are booth reviews. It’s not supposed to be like wrestling, where anything goes if the ref is distracted.
The PI probably should have been defensive holding, just like the grab that pulled Worthy back on the route that was intercepted by TCU.
Picking up the holding flag was … inexplicable.

Cockroaches. They can get up and beat you, screwing your year up, but they can’t take care of business enough in other games to make it worth you treating it like a big game, too.
