BOULDER, Colo. — Ten months into Sonny Dykes’ tenure, we had some ideas of how the new era of TCU football might play out.

One game into the 2022 season, we’ve been provided some additional clarity.

As expected, Dykes was aggressive, going for it on fourth down twice, including from midfield early in the game.

We were promised multiple quarterbacks, but it was clearly Chandler Morris’ game until an injury knocked him out late in the third quarter.

Several true freshmen saw the field, including then 17-year-old Damonic Williams. He started at nose tackle and looked like a veteran by the second half. Wide receiver Jordan Hudson recorded his first career catch and defensive end Michael Ibukin-Okeyode had his first tackle.

There were plenty of positives to take away from the Horned Frogs’ 38-13 victory, but as Max Duggan said after the game, there’s plenty to work on, too.
