At Big 12 media days in July, TCU’s Gary Patterson spoke extensively about the difficulty he experienced last season with his right knee, which was replaced surgically a few days after the Horned Frogs bowl game.

According to Patterson, his knee problems trickled down to the team because he could not coach the same way, limiting his mobility in practice and sapping his energy. If you’ve watched Patterson closely over the years — his intensity is a huge part of what makes him so effective — it’s a theory that made some sense. 

Now the real Patterson is back. And so are the real Horned Frogs, who were college football’s biggest winners on Saturday afternoon. 

TCU’s 28-7 victory at Arkansas was huge for the program, not just because it was a road win against an SEC team but because it looks like the Horned Frogs have a Gary Patterson-style defense again. 

After falling off significantly last season, the Horned Frogs looked vintage in Fayetteville, holding Arkansas to 267 yards. They were particularly impressive against the run, limiting the potent Razorbacks’ attack to 129 yards on 31 attempts.
