Outmatched? Reactions pour in on TCU's early struggles against No. 1 Georgia
The TCU Horned Frogs have found themselves in a major hole at halftime of the National Championship game.
TCU trails No. 1 Georgia 38-7 at halftime after a rough first few quarters. The Bulldogs are dominating in every facet of the game. The Bulldogs have almost 250 more total yards, 14 more 1st downs, and over 8 more minutes of possession.
The Horned Frogs’ 3-3-5 defense has no answer for the Bulldogs offense, either. Georgia has scored on every drive so far and will receive the ball after the halftime break.

If TCU even thought about playing defense this wouldn’t be going over. These guys can’t stop a nose bleed.

See, this is what ticks me off. I knew @TCUFootball was the inferior team — but I went with the Cinderella pick. A loss is cool, especially to a powerhouse like @GeorgiaFootball. But to get your ass kicked shows me ya never belonged in the game to begin with.#Damn!

Twitter users are having their fun, but we all know TCU is a 2nd half team. Let’s see if the Frogs have a miracle second-half comeback in them.
