TCU fans ranked as 5th happiest among college football supporters

An unexpected 8-1 season can cure a lot of ills.

If you don’t believe it, just ask TCU fans.

According to an ESPN fan index ranking the “happiest fans” in college football, TCU ranks fifth nationally and leads all Big 12 teams.

Among the items that are  consider include gauging the stability of the program’s head coach, the so-called “Panic Factor” of a fan base gauged on Twitter responses  and how the team has performed comparable to preseason expectations.

Here’s a listing of how the poll currently ranks Big 12  teams:

17. Kansas State

20. Iowa State

32. Oklahoma

The only programs ranking higher than the Horned  Frogs  are Georgia, Alabama, UCF and Notre Dame. And the only ones below winless Kansas is Kent State.
