The Texas Christian University Horned Frogs are a football team that plays in the Mountain West Conference. This team is better known as TCU. Last season the Horned Frogs had a dream season. Many people do not realize it, but the Horned Frogs have had more success than most would suspect over the history of their playing college football.
The Horned Frogs have won two national titles over the years. This goes along with the 15 conference titles that they have won. Not only have they had great team efforts, but the Horned Frogs have put out great individual players over the years. They have had a Heisman Trophy Winner and 15 Consensus All-Americans.
The National Championships won by the team came many years ago. The 1930s represented the greatest decade of success that the University has ever seen. 1935 is when things all started.
The Horned Frogs were led by head coach Dutch Meyer. The Team was experiencing a top notch season and was on its way to win the national title. Unfortunately things took a turn for the worse as the season closed out. The Horned Frogs took on Stanford in the final game of the season. SMU was another one of the top teams in the nation and managed to beat the Horned Frogs. Stanford went on to beat SMU in the Rose Bowl แทงบอลufabet. This killed the hopes of SMU, but put the Horned Frogs in a great position. The Horned Frogs managed to win their Sugar Bowl game over LSU and claimed their first National Championship.
The Horned Frogs found a great amount of confidence following that and managed to continue to stay relevant. In 1938 the Horned Frogs turned things up again and made a run for another National Championship.
The team was still led by Dutch Meyer, but this season they managed to come out without any losses unlike the season in 1935. The team finished the season with another victory in the Sugar Bowl. The team finished the season as the top team according to the Associated Press poll.
The team has not had a tremendous amount of success since those championships, but they have had times when they had relative successes. The team was a part of the Southwest Conference for many years and managed to win the conference championship 9 times while in that conference. The team moved on to the WAC and Conference USA for a time and managed to win the conference championship in each of those conferences as well.
The most famous player to come out of TCU in recent years was LaDanian Tomlinson. Tomlinson was a great player while at TCU, but he has become an even more noteworthy player since leaving. He will go down as the greatest player to ever have played in the NFL from TCU. He may be the best running back to ever have played in the NFL.
Last year the Horned Frogs shocked the world with a high powered offense. Their speed and game plan were too much for almost every team they faced as they managed to post a 12-1 record last season. The Horned Frogs look to start things off strong again in 2010 and have hopes of reeling in an undefeated season.
