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:
Big 12 Fan Happiness Index:
16. Oklahoma State
17. Kansas State
20. Iowa State
40. West Virginia
94. Texas Tech
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.
