Beef and balance overcame a woeful lack of experience for Texas Christian's Horned Frogs. Constantly plagued by the mental failings of their youth, the Frogs compensated for their errors by sheer physical violence. Coach Abe Martin, a placid, optimistic man, shuffled his three platoons in and out of games casually, depended on a massive line to contain opponents' running. Gang-tackling is a TCU trademark. JACK SPIKES, called "The Big Panther" for his ability to go over, around or through enemy tacklers, is a very authoritative fullback; HUNTER ENIS, an unsung senior quarterback, passes wonderfully well, does an excellent job of directing the "assorted T" offense. DON FLOYD, a real All-America tackle, is strong, smart and fast enough to compensate for his few mistakes. SHERRILL HEADRICK, best of the fine linebackers, has wide range, good instinct. Team weakness, if any, is pass defense, a failing of youth.
