Horned Frogs gearing up for spring ball
By Jeff Caplan
Last season is so last season. TCU's trek for repeat BCS stardom begins on Tuesday with the start of spring workouts.
The defending Mountain West Champions, the team that broke through the BCS barrier and played in the Fiesta Bowl, the team that finished No. 6 in both national rankings with a 12-1 record hits the field for four practices next week (Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday).
The Frogs will play their annual spring game on April 10 at Amon G. Carter Stadium. But, coach Gary Patterson won't be done with the boys quite yet. He's scheduled three more practices after the spring game, wrapping up on April 15 and shutting things down until players report for fall camp in the sweltering heat of August.
