I'm not angry about the departure at all. We just won an SEC game by 48 points, something Texas fans said would NEVER happen, let alone this year.
I struggle to define how good TCU is to be honest. They actually play defense and run the ball so games are close by nature. All that said they can pass when needed and generally are a quality team.
You can't gauge a single thing by last night. That was a rivalry game and was played in a downpour.
TCU has been markedly better than TAMU for the past decade. How they match up this year is debateable.
TAMU beating ARK means really nothing. ARK lost two OOC games versus spares and now 1-4. This is the worst ARK has played probably since they joined the SEC.
TAMU actually has gotten UPGRADED QB/WR play out of Manziel/Evans. That has been the difference for them this year. The coachign change also looks to be a big plus; (especially IN RECRUITING). All that said they've played as terrible a schedule as Texas Tech. Not their fault that ARK is this bad (or that LaTech got postponed), but they are all the same. They've played 1 top 50 team thus far and lost.
I will give you this. No one expected the SEC to be this soft this year. All the Big 12 schools face an actually tougher schedule. Only 3 top 20 teams on the schedule. They should make a very solid bowl game as the 3rd place finisher in the SEC West and finish ranked in the top 25.
