Fans exploded at Schollmaier Arena when TCU wide receiver Quentin Johnston hit a long ball in the first quarter of the College Football National Championship Playoff against the Georgia Bulldogs in Inglewood, California.
Unfortunately for the Horned Frogs, the team lost to the Bulldogs 65-7. The defeat ended their hopes of winning the national title for the first time since 1938.
“TCU hasn’t been a famous school for a long time, and this one could mean everything to our school,” said TCU student and member of the Dutch association Brady Raboin.
According to him, Rabuan joined the Dutch because he likes to spin the crowd.
A Cinderella Story ended on January 9th for TCU Horned Frogs.
“We have established ourselves as the program to compete with some of the best teams in college football. We still have a bright future ahead of us – maybe not as impressive as winning the American football playoffs, ”said Raboin.
He sees the TCU Horned Frogs as a strong team in the coming years.
At The Poop Deck Bar and Grill, Bert Adams, a 1963 TCU graduate and owner of a bar-restaurant at 3505 Bluebonnet Circle near the school, said the team was nervous.
“I’ve never seen them play like that,” he said at halftime as TCU were down 38–7. “This is a second half team, but it has a lot to overcome. I’m proud of them no matter what. A whole year has passed.”
Randy Champ, TCU Class of ’79, a retiree living in Altus, Oklahoma, stopped by The Poop Deck to watch a game.
“They make a lot of mistakes,” he said before the break. “They haven’t played like this all season, but Georgia has experience, and at least it shows so far.”
