FWST: Patterson says TCU defense not as experienced as it may seem

BY CARLOS MENDEZ cmendez@star-telegram.com

TCU coach Gary Patterson said his defense is not as seasoned as it might seem.

“It’s not an experienced group,” Patterson said after practice Tuesday. “That’s what you guys keep saying it is. It’s a bunch of guys that played. These guys are freshmen and sophomores. We have five seniors out there. We’ve got about seven juniors. Everybody else is freshmen and sophomores.”

TCU returns seven defensive starters, plus four others lost to injury last season: defensive end James McFarland, linebacker Sammy Douglas, safety Kenny Iloka and cornerback Ranthony Texada.

McFarland, defensive end Josh Carraway, defensive tackle Aaron Curry and safety Denzel Johnson are senior starters.
