How good you think TCU is?

The first Lobo Media luncheon of 2008. We bring you some audio.

Wouldn't you anticipate they are good? 4 of 5 starting O-linemen, QB is back, the RB that was injured last year and has been named all-conference he is back 2 of their 3 wide receivers are back,. 2 DL are back, all their linebackers are back, and 3 of their 4 secondary are back, don't you think they are going to be very good…

 That was Coach Rocky Long talking about the TCU Horned Frogs as the Lobos will be taking on TCU this Saturday in the season opener. How good is TCU? Very good if you ask Coach Long, and anyone else out there… the key to TCU's game. Speed kills!

 Coach Long says, "TCU has a fertile recruiting ground in the DFW Metroplex area and could easily field an entire team from within that area. "I'm surprised when TCU has someone on their roster that isn't from Texas," said Long.

 Since TCU has joined the MWC the Lobos haven't beaten the frogs in 3 attempts. Including last year's 37-0 thumping of the Lobos in Ft. Worth. Coach Long said, "We show them clips of last year's game as we prepare them for this year. We don't sit them down and watch the whole thing though." Coach Long went on to add that, we have around 20 guy playing on Saturday that didn't play against TCU last year."

 The onus for this game falls on our boys in the trenches… The Hitmen! According to Coach Long, "We have really good skill at the wide receiver position, they are young, but they are good, they can do good things but Porterie has to be able to throw. We have just as good as running backs as anyone else in the league, and Donovan is one of the 2 best quarterbacks in the league, but he can't show that if they (Hitmen) can't keep the defenders off of him."
