TCU football notes: Frogs to address player development during bye week practices

Without a bowl game, TCU is missing out on a month of practices.

One big question has been answered for the TCU football team: there will be no bowl game this holiday season.

With that, there will be no extra month of practice.

So, as coach Gary Patterson said Saturday after TCU’s 33-31 loss to Kansas Sate, the Horned Frogs’ Nov. 30 date with No. 4 Baylor will have to suffice as a bowl game.

“Our No. 1 goal is to give our seniors the best possible season we can have,” Patterson said Monday. “We have two weeks to win one more ball game. We have Baylor at the end of the season for senior night or senior day, whichever one it may be.”

The game will kick off at 2:30 or 7 p.m. and air on ABC, ESPN or ESPN2.

TCU will use some of the practice time during the next two weeks on player development.

“For the younger guys, it’s about getting going,” Patterson said. “We’ve got to make up for not having those extra practices and all the things that need to be done as far as getting in the weight room.”

White’s status

Junior wide receiver Cam White will not play against Baylor. White said in a tweet last week that his career was over because of a concussion, but Patterson would not comment on the player’s career status.

White was injured before the Texas game on Oct. 26 but saw action against West Virginia and Iowa State. He has 18 catches for 172 yards on the season.
