FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - The first thing TCU coach Gary Patterson told his team this offseason was to remember the 4-8 record from two seasons ago.
He didn't want the Horned Frogs acting like the team that was the Big 12 co-champion with 12 wins and so close to a playoff spot last fall. He then put them through a tough spring.
TCU wraps up spring practice Friday night, with quarterback Trevone Boykin wearing a cast on his left hand instead of being on the field.
Boykin, the Big 12 player of the year, had surgery last week. He broke a small bone in his non-throwing wrist midway through last season, but didn't miss any games and then went through most of spring practice as planned.
