Can Sonny Dykes and TCU football repeat the success of last season?

Sonny Dykes

The TCU Horned Frogs took college football by storm last season, making a Cinderella run all the way to the College Football Playoff national championship game, before falling to Georgia.

Replacing talent like Quentin Johnston and Max Duggan is no easy task for any program, but has TCU reached the level where it can reload after losing NFL talent? Many around the nation are using the word “rebuild” when talking about the 2023 version of the Horned Frogs.

“We had a good nucleus of players (last year), but what made that group fun to coach was that we were better collectively than we were individually and that’s what makes a great team,” Dykes said. “It was a hell of a ride and something I’ll never forget, but at the same time we have to move forward. What happened last year is certainly not going to have any bearing on what’s going to happen this year. It’s a big challenge for us, I think we’ve got a lot of eyeballs on us (now).”

Head football coach Sonny Dykes addressed the rebuild questions and more recently at the Big 12 Media Days.
