"It was a really good game up at OU" said Barrett. "We really woke up in the second half and almost pulled it off."
"With the second half against SMU and the second half against OU, we're getting close" he said. "There won't be too many teams putting many points on our defense; they're nasty."
Barrett went on to explain that even though TCU has come up on the short end of the stick in three of their five games, he's not hitting the panic button just yet.
"If we can get it together on offense, we're going to be great" said the Dallas Skyline star. "Boykin is only a sophomore and our D is still young; I still think we're going to do some great things."
"We're 2-3 but we've played some really tough teams and the games were close" he said. "We're going to do some dominant stuff in the rest of the schedule but we've played LSU, at Texas Tech and at OU; Those are tough games."
"Since Connor's going, I'll be there for sure" said Barrett. "I text him once in a blue moon to see how his season is going but to think of an offensive line with Connor, me, Austin(Schlottman) and Frank Kee, that would be something right there."
While the offensive line has taken a beating in the court of public opinion, Barrett says he still thinks the current o-line can get the job done for TCU.
"I think those guys can turn it around" he said. "They're good enough to get it going."
"When I get there, I'm just going to work hard and of course I'll be ready to play if they need me" he said. "I just want to come in and compete and if it works out that I play early, I'll be ready to do my part."
With his commitment to TCU as solid as ever, the #23 OT in the country says most teams have backed off out of respect for his decision.
"They've backed off because they respect that I'm all TCU" he said. "It's slowed way down and I'm really glad to be where I'm at."
