Consider TCU very thankful on this Thanksgiving day in Austin. The Horned Frogs came into DKR with a No. 5 ranking and Texas-sized chip on its shoulders. They took prayers throws from the much-improved Trevone Boykin, and its defense was as stellar as expected.

Ah, Thanksgiving. Family gathers around the kitchen to prepare food and the television to watch professional and college football. Super Bowl party meets Christmas. No wonder we call it Thanksgiving, as it’s the best of the aforementioned, but there’s no work the next day and no burden of Christmas shopping.
Although Texas has secured a positive outcome for this season by guaranteeing a .500 record in regular season play, bowl practices, and a bowl game while improving along the way, you get the sense that this team wants more. Beating a playoff contender at home, particularly one that has tried to lay equal claim as THE tough, defensive unit in the state, would be an enormous win for Strong’s rebuild regardless of the surrounding context.
The 2014 Texas football season has been a bittersweet transition from ‘culture shock’ to an apparent ‘culture change’ among Longhorn players. Thursday’s season finale against No. 5 TCU will speak volumes of how far the program has progressed under first-year coach Charlie Strong, but a couple of seniors spoke candidly Monday of the seismic shift within the burnt orange football culture.
