Check your ticket stub. Did you pay for admittance to a game TCU is hosting in Fort Worth against Texas Tech University?
Are you sure you’re at the right game?
With the score 17-10 TCU in the fourth quarter, either you’re in the wrong stadium, or you’ve been transported to an alternate dimension, wherein Big 12 teams play defense and Texas Tech and TCU both play offense with a 50/50 run/pass split. Tech Tech, averaging more than 600 yards a game, had 240.
With 51 seconds left in the third, a dropped snap by Tech punter Michael Barden gave the Horned Frogs possession on the Tech 15-yard line, and after Kenny Hill’s 10th interception of the year, Foster Sawyer is in a quarterback for TCU.
That’s a move that coach Gary Patterson alluded to on Tuesday, but it still prompts the question: Am I at the right game? Or am I on the right plane of reality?
A somewhat related note: As Trevorris Johnson gets in on second and goal from Tech’s 1-yard line to put TCU up 17-10, which only supports our quantum football reality theory, it’s as good a time as any to report that starting running back Kyle Hicks was in for three plays to start the third quarter after sustaining an injury on the Frogs’ first possession in the first quarter. He came out and hasn’t been back on the field since.
He has been used sparingly after coming back onto the field for TCU’s third possession of the game. He limped off favoring his left leg in the first.
