Analysis: TCU

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Neal Brown and the Mountaineers passed up their win total from a year ago after running over the Horned Frogs 24-6 on Saturday. 

  1. Jarrett Doege’s decision-making – Doege has the decision-making of an elite quarterback. His offensive leadership was shown at full potential against TCU. I would compare him to a surgeon who carefully decides their next move before executing it. He does a great job of looking off receivers before hitting his open man downfield. Whether it’s a drag route across the middle or a curl right on the outside, he made all the right moves on Saturday. If he could become just a bit more skilled at hitting receivers in stride he’d be good to go. 
  2. Leddie Brown continues to dominate – The best thing about Brown is that he’s a downhill runner. When he is handed the ball, he finds the hole and explodes downfield. It takes a disciplined back to understand what their best quality is and use it to their advantage. His best qualities? He’s a physical, smart tailback. He doesn’t like to wait and he doesn’t dance around. What could make his performance even more impressive? Neal Brown doesn’t even think he was 100% healthy against TCU. Wow. 
  3. Defense continued to be outstanding! – What makes this defense so good? Aside from a fantastic defensive line, our secondary is putting on a show. Not only are these guys smothering receivers, they are coming up and making plays at the line of scrimmage. They’re everywhere! TCU hadn’t been held out of the end zone since 2016 against K-State. The Mountaineers hadn’t kept an offense out of the end zone since 2018. Tykee Smith was named the Big 12 defensive player of the week after recording nine tackles, a tackle for a loss, an interception and a pass breakup.
