The defending Rose Bowl champion TCU Horned Frogs are already looking to a lot of new faces to step up on offense, with only three starters returning. Arguably the most important new starter is quarterback Casey Pachall. The highly-touted in-state recruit has missed the past three Horned Frogs practices, including one scrimmage, with soreness in his throwing shoulder. Pachall underwent an MRI on the shoulder and head coach Gary Patterson told the Star-Telegram the results showed "nothing serious."

"We don't think it's a big deal," Patterson said after Wednesday's scrimmage.

The sophomore faces a difficult challenge in replacing four-year starter Andy Dalton. He has reportedly looked sharp in fall camp so far, so resting his throwing arm for a couple practices should not be a big deal if the MRI revealed nothing alarming to the staff.

"We don't think it's a big deal,"

Isn't this the same coach who blew his top at the team Doctor because a guy had a concussion? Or maybe concussions are no big deal? Or maybe I got my info wrong. Just wondering.

A close one. We need Casey to play. Hope his shoulder feels 100% come first game, this is Baylor's "Super Bowl" and our QBs first game as the starting QB.

Go Frogs!
