Boykin and TCU Offense Will Be Hard to Stop in 2015

The TCU offense has become a powerhouse in college football. Last season in its second game after just 21 minutes against Minnesota, it was quite clear the 2014 TCU offense was not the same one that scored 25 points per game in 2013.

With 9 minutes remaining in the second quarter, the Horned Frogs led by the score of 24-0. TCU scored only six more points the rest of the way to win 30-7 but one knew right away that things were different.

In its first four drives the TCU offense went 3 plays for one touchdown, six plays and a field goal, three plays and a touchdown and five plays and another touchdown.

Just as with Oregon, Baylor and other up-tempo offenses, TCU had suddenly started to make its opponents pay for mistakes and pay dearly.

At the end of last season, TCU was second nationally in scoring per game with 46.5 points, No. 5 in total offense averaging 533 yards a game and Trevone Boykin the TCU quarterback averaged 354 total yards per game all by himself.

Gary Patterson the TCU head coach hired two assistants in Sonny Cumbie and Doug Meacham  to install the no-huddle, up-tempo offense.

With weapons such as Boykin, Aaron Green and B.J. Catalon at running back and Kolby Listenbee and Josh Doctson at wide receiver, the TCU offense could only be slowed down, but never stopped.

The success came thanks to Boykin having a complete offseason to know he was the man under center so he could build his confidence and become more consistent.

The team’s offensive line, which had been hit previously with injuries, was finally healthy in 2014 and helped the offense become the prolific scoring machine it was.

Boykin now has a full year under his belt as the top quarterback, which gives him more confidence.

He and other upperclassman players on TCU have improved as the team leaders. Boykin was asked to work out in front of gurus from the NFL, but he stayed with his fellow players during the entire summer to make sure the workouts were being done to prepare for this season.

Those types of lessons are what Boykin hopes the younger players are able to pick up on and one day teach them to the newest players on the team.

TCU opens this season with Minnesota and the game will be tough, but odds are that Boykin and his offense will score and score often, making the hot summer workouts even more worth it.
