(Heesoo Yang/Staff Photographer) printIn 2018, TCU football saw a downhill season get worse with a 27-26 loss to Kansas in Lawrence to give the Jayhawks their first conference win.That was not the case for the Frogs on Saturday.Behind 337 yards rushing as a team and four touchdowns from quarterback Max Duggan, TCU throttled Kansas 59-23 to hand the Jayhawks their 12th-straight loss, dating back to October 2019.“After two weeks off, you never know how you’re going to act,” head coach Gary Patterson said. “[You] have to go on the road. We didn’t play well on the road last time. [I] wasn’t happy that we gave up 23 points, but it is what it is. [We] had some guys do some really good things.”TCU had five players with over 30 yards rushing on the day. True freshman Zach Evans led the way, putting together his first-ever 100-yard game on just 12 carries.Redshirt freshman Darwin Barlow and Duggan came in right behind Evans, combining for 144 yards and putting up one score on the ground each.Though Duggan completed just three passes on the day, he made each of them count. The young signal caller threw touchdowns of 46, 26, and 24 yards, two of which went to tight end Pro Wells.“First of all, I want to shout out my o-line, which played phenomenal tonight,” Duggan said. “I think all the success was behind them for everything tonight.”Wells finished with a career-high 70 yards.Duggan’s third touchdown pass went to tight end Carter Ware, who scored for the first time in his four-year career at TCU. After missing the West Virginia game with an injury, receiver Derius Davis made his presence known again in the return game. Late in the first quarter, Kansas shanked a punt and Davis took advantage, taking it 37 yards to the house to put TCU up 24-0.The junior now has three career punt return touchdowns, two of which have come this year, tying him for second all-time in TCU history.“You know, don’t let up. Don’t let them try and come back, keep up their hope,” Duggan said of TCU’s early mentality. “So we had to keep focusing, keep working on ourselves and our game plan.”Late in the first half, Kansas would replace starting quarterback Jalon Daniels with Miles Kendrick, who scored two touchdowns on his first four drives.Any momentum Kendrick gained for the Jayhawks was brought to a halt at the beginning of the fourth quarter. TCU cornerback C.J. Ceasar took his first-career interception 30 yards for a touchdown to give the Frogs a 32-point lead.The TCU defense was not done with Kendrick, though. Three drives later, defensive end Ochaun Mathis stripped the junior quarterback deep in Kansas territory, leading to a recovery by linebacker Dee Winters in the end zone to extend the TCU advantage even further.Led by linebacker Garrett Wallow, the Frogs racked up 12 tackles for a loss and four sacks in a lock down defensive performance.Wallow was all over the field, posting a game-high 10 tackles, a tackle for a loss, a pass breakup, and a quarterback hit.“This win was very big for us as a team,” Wallow said. “We came out like, ‘We need this win, and whatever it takes, we’re willing to get it done.’”The win brings TCU back to .500 at 4-4, likely locking up their spot in a bowl game this winter. They will wrap up their season next week at home against Oklahoma State. Kickoff is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 5 at a time TBA.

During her five-minute questioning period of Castro, Love questioned the secretary on the expected default rate of people gain homeownership as a result of recent housing policy changes enacted by HUD or FHA and on what he expected would happen to surrounding homes in neighborhoods where defaults occur.Castro did not have much to say regarding how the agencies planned to sustain homeownership, however. The majority of his answers to Love’s questions involved praising the work of HUD and FHA.Love presented a map that showed distressed residential areas from 2008 to 2012 to illustrate her point that she did not believe the recent housing policy changes were helping Americans achieve the goal of not only attaining homeownership but maintaining it once they are in the homes.”[T]he people who run these (distressed) areas have the same political view as you do,” Love said. “In the words of the president during the State of Union address, if it’s not working, it’s time to do something different. We need to do everything we can by not just worrying about just one family, but worrying about as many people as possible.”While Love began her questioning period by acknowledging that the questions Castro had been asked that day were “really hard” – Love’s questioning occurred within the final 15 minutes of a marathon four-hour long hearing – she quickly moved into asking the secretary about the expected default rate of people who gained homeownership as a result of lowering the insurance premiums.”We have a default rate of less than 10 percent,” Castro said. “It’s improved over the last couple of years. We also have seen serious delinquencies, which refer to 90 day delinquencies, drop by 27 percent since 2013 because 2013 and 2014 have been some of the strongest on the books.”In response to Love’s question about what happens when the loans go into default, Castro said, “That’s a great question. There’s a long process before that happens. In fact, I think to the credit of FHA, and in part to the committee, we have improved our loss mitigation process. We work with folks through housing counseling and through other measures to try and avoid default.”When Love turned her questioning toward what happens to value of homes in the areas where homes default and what happens to the people who have “gotten into their homes responsibly” when someone around them defaults. After Castro said he disagreed with the premise of the question, Love repeated her question as to the effect of defaults on surrounding home values.”I think the answer to that is that varies,” Castro said. “Sometimes those homes are sold, and somebody new moves in, so you have a variety of experiences out there in terms of what happens in that circumstance.”Love pointed out those effects by drawing from an economic review by the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta: “Given that foreclosure properties generally sell at a discount, the natural question arises as to whether these distressed properties in turn put downward sale prices, pressure on neighborhood properties resulting in negative externalities.” She also quoted former HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan, Castro’s predecessor: “Foreclosed and vacant homes have a debilitating effect on neighborhoods and often lead to blighted neighborhoods, decay, and reduced property values.” Love discussed the importance of looking beyond what is “seen” and stating that the issue goes beyond just simply getting people into homes.”What I’m trying to say is, this is not just a fiscal issue for me,” said Love, a former mayor in Utah who began her first Congressional term in January. “This is a moral issue. . . What do you say to the people who have gotten into homes responsibly, and all of a sudden, because of so many different foreclosures around that area, realize their neighborhoods are going into decay and they’ve lost the value in their home? What do you say to those people?”Castro responded with a plug for FHA.”I’d say first of all, if they’re in that neighborhood, chances are that those responsible homebuyers were through FHA, because we’ve been doing our work,” Castro said.Love wasn’t convinced that the secretary was seeing the bigger picture, however. She pointed out in her response that she knew Castro, a former mayor like herself, had seen the devastating effect that foreclosures have on neighborhoods, and how those communities turn into something “less than desirable” compared to what those families and individuals wanted when they moved into those communities.”This is about bringing people from the lowest common denominator up,” Love said.
