TCU, which entered the sport because the No. 17 group within the nation, fell out of the rankings.
Now, one participant is fed up.
“I suppose you’ll be able to say it’s a wake-up name,” junior linebacker Johnny Hodges stated on Tuesday, per ESPN. “I don’t know the way shedding within the nationwide championship by 60 isn’t a wake-up name. Proper now we’re positively the laughingstock of school soccer.”
The Horned Frogs might barely make a cease towards Colorado on Saturday, surrendering 565 whole yards and a Colorado file of 510 passing yards to quarterback Shedeur Sanders, head coach Deion Sanders’ son.
Hodges, final season’s Large 12 Defensive Newcomer of the Yr, made it clear that the poor effort was on the gamers, although, and never on defensive coordinator Joe Gillespie.
“Having 22 missed tackles, having who is aware of what number of missed assignments, making our defensive coordinator look terrible, simply making his protection appear like it’s a childhood children’ protection and him getting all this slack … So if it’s not a wake-up name, then I don’t know what it’s.”
“It’s very, very upsetting that our defensive coordinator has to take all this slack when he did nothing however inform us precisely what was going to occur and put us in conditions in observe that mocked the sport and we weren’t capable of take what he advised us and convey it on the sphere on Saturday,” he continued.
It was a surprising begin to the season for the Horned Frogs, who went 13-2 within the common season earlier than falling to the Bulldogs within the championship recreation.
Colorado jumped from unranked to No. 22 within the ballot.
