 Max Duggan, Texas Christian, Player News


  TCU football isn't going to have a quarterback controversy this offseason. As far as who's starting at least. We've already written at-length about the Chandler Morris situation with Oklahoma and its coach Lincoln Riley. But Max Duggan is QB1 for TCU. He's the unquestioned leader as coach Gary Patterson said Tuesday. "He's fantastic," Patterson said. "He is the leader over there. He and the offensive line have a great relationship and that's another key ingredient you look at with how they get along. They have a great relationship. He lives with a couple of them and that always helps with everything." What remains unknown is the strides Duggan has taken in the passing game.

Accuracy issues were apparent throughout his true freshman season in 2019 when he completed just 53.4% of his passes. Duggan improved in 2020, completing 60.8% of his passes, but was limited much of the spring and fall due to a previously unknown heart condition discovered through advanced COVID-19 tests. Duggan finished the season completing 146 of 240 passes for 1,795 yards with 10 touchdowns and four interceptions. He also had 526 yards rushing and 10 TDs. Patterson said he felt Duggan threw the "deep ball" well in the fall, but reiterated his longtime stance that quarterbacks are judged on Saturdays. "It depends on the day, like any quarterback," Patterson said. "At the end of the day, you only get evaluated by the success of it." - Fort Worth Star

  Junior Max Duggan has put together two impressive seasons at TCU. Taking over as QB1 his freshman year and continuing his leadership on the team in 2020 as a sophomore, Duggan has the potential to take the next step during his junior year. The thing that is intriguing about Duggan is not only his ability to see the field, but his legs. He is fast and doesn't let defenders pull him down easily. He led the team in rushing yards (713 gained, 526 net) and the next closest to him was Darwin Barlow with 444 (428 net). We could see some serious improvement from Duggan too with former TCU quarterback Kenny Hill moving into the role of quarterbacks coach. - Dallas Morning News

  TCU quarterback Max Duggan threw a go-ahead, 71-yard touchdown pass midway through the fourth quarter and ran for two more scores as the Horned Frogs held off No. 19 Oklahoma State 29-22 on Saturday. Duggan threw for 265 yards and ran for 104 to lead the Horned Frogs (5-4, 5-4 Big 12). Derius Davis caught the long TD pass in stride near the 25 with 7:56 left to give the Horned Frogs the lead. They stayed in front when Trevon Moehrig made a one-handed interception of a deflected pass in the end zone, and TCU had a fourth-down stop with 2:18 left after its own turnover. Oklahoma State (6-3, 5-3), with a makeup game remaining at Baylor, wasn't necessarily eliminated from making the Big 12 championship game in two weeks, but would need a lot of help to get there.

The Cowboys were trying to respond with a tying touchdown when Spencer Sanders' high pass deflected off the hands of 6-foot-7 Jelani Woods, and was grabbed by Moehrig in the back of the end zone. Duggan then fumbled when Amen Ogbongbemiga stripped the ball from him at the TCU 26. But Sanders was under extreme pressure and threw an incompletion on fourth down. Oklahoma State still had another shot after TCU failed to get a first down to run out the clock, but Sanders' desperation pass on the final play of the game fell incomplete in a crowd near the goal line. Tylan Wallace, the Oklahoma State senior playing in his hometown, had a 55-yard TD catch at the end of the third quarter to put the Cowboys up 22-21. He finished with seven catches for 92 yards. Sanders finished 16-of-31 passing for 248 yards. - TCU/AP College Football

  TCU coach Gary Patterson doesn't know how you can properly evaluate a football program this year. The coronavirus pandemic has made it near impossible to draw substantive conclusions. At TCU, for instance, starting quarterback Max Duggan missed most of fall camp after being diagnosed with a heart condition that required surgery. That came on the heels of spring football being disrupted by COVID. How much more would have Duggan developed with a full spring and fall camp going into his sophomore season? Maybe he'd have similar numbers - 124 of 201 passing for 1,370 yards with eight TDs and three interceptions - but maybe not.

"You just take him as one example of all the time that he missed where he couldn't be out on the field," Patterson said. "He couldn't lift, he couldn't run. He couldn't do anything because of the heart situation. So you just take that one example. Where would he be right now if he had spring ball and he had all those practices during fall camp and went through all of it? I mean, I don't think there's any way...I don't know how you do it." As Patterson said, Duggan is just one example. TCU has plenty more, starting with Patterson's coaching staff. - Fort Worth Star

  Max Duggan threw three touchdown passes while running 58 yards for another score, TCU piled up 337 yards rushing in all, and the Horned Frogs bludgeoned their way to a 59-23 victory over winless Kansas on Saturday night. Zach Evans ran for 100 yards on 12 carries, and Darwin Barlow added 83 yards rushing and a score, as the Horned Frogs (4-4, 4-4 Big 12) easily bounced back from a lopsided loss to West Virginia in which they failed to reach the end zone. TCU had no such trouble in this one.

Duggan threw two TD passes to Pro Wells and another to Carter Ware, and Derius Davis returned a punt for a score, as coach Gary Patterson's crew raced to a 38-12 halftime lead. They settled into a ground-and-pound approach from there, and a pick-six from C.J. Caesar II and fumble recovery for a score by Dee Winters put an exclamation mark on the win. The Jayhawks (0-8, 0-7) tried errant and unsuccessful Jalon Daniels and Thomas MacVittie before giving Miles Kendrick a shot at quarterback. The third-stringer provided a spark, completing 11 of 18 passes for 166 yards with two TD passes to freshman Luke Grimm, who'd had just nine catches without a score all season. Still, he hardly overcame a defense that allowed at least 52 points for the fourth straight game. - TCU/AP College Football

  Max Duggan and TCU went to the ground when they weren't able to do much through the air against Texas Tech. Duggan ran for 154 yards and three touchdowns, including a game-clinching 81-yarder late as the Horned Frogs snapped a five-game home losing streak with a 34-18 win Saturday. "They were not going to let us throw the ball very well, and so we had to be able to run it. So we took what they gave us," TCU coach Gary Patterson said. "We did enough to win."

Duggan, who finished 11-of-23 passing for 73 yards with an interception, had a 3-yard keeper for a score in the first half. He sprinted 48 yards for a touchdown in the final minute of the third quarter, then had the 81-yarder on his 19th and final carry with 1:42 left. "When a quarterback outruns the secondary, you know you have a guy that's very athletic," Patterson said. "I wasn't throwing the ball great, and I need to be better on that," Duggan said. "But, you know, the O-line receivers, everybody, stepped up being able to run the ball and being able to attack them that way." The Frogs (3-3, 3-3 Big 12) hadn't won at home since beating Texas on Oct. 26, 2019, and had lost their first three games at Amon G. Carter Stadium this season. The win also snapped a five-game streak in the series against Texas Tech (2-5, 1-5) in which the visiting team had won each time. - AP College Football

  Max Duggan wasn't going to let TCU blow a 30-point lead at Baylor on Saturday. The sophomore quarterback came through when it mattered most to preserve a 33-23 victory over the Bears in Waco. Duggan rushed for two first downs on the final drive, which allowed the Horned Frogs to run out the final 6 minutes, 24 seconds. Duggan deflected credit on the final drive to his teammates afterward. "That had a lot to do with our offensive line and our running backs. Our tight ends too," Duggan said of his first-down runs. "That was just middle drill that we work on every single day. I think it showed a lot that they've been working really really hard. "On the last drive, the running backs hit the hole hard, tight ends did great, receivers on the outside. It was everybody. It was a good last drive for us."

That drive mattered more than any stat line as far as winning or losing. Duggan carried his team to victory on a day he had less than 200 yards of total offense (138 passing yards, 25 rushing yards). Early in what became the last drive, Duggan rushed for 13 yards on a second-and-1 from the Baylor 48. Three plays later, with TCU facing a third-and-7 with more than 3 minutes, 30 seconds remaining, Duggan rushed for 10 yards and another first down. TCU needed one more first down after that to run out the clock and got it on a 7-yard run by Emari Demercado on a fourth-and-1 play from the Baylor 13. Duggan finished with 25 yards rushing on nine carries for the game, but those two carries for 23 yards on the final drive were pivotal. "Max did a good job," TCU coach Gary Patterson said. "I was proud of the offense on the last drive. You've got to get the ball and don't give it back to them. That's how you close a ball game. You don't give it back." - Fort Worth Star

  Asked about Duggan becoming a "star" in the Big 12, coach Gary Patterson said: "I don't know. He's really improved from last year on touch passes. A year ago, I used to say he needed before the ballgame to throw 10 really hard balls against a wall and get all the hard balls out of his system. Here in the first few games, he's had a couple touch passes for touchdowns that he's thrown that have been really good. He's just a true sophomore. "If we win enough ballgames, I'll leave it up for you guys to make him a star." - Fort Worth Star

  Max Duggan doesn't crumble under pressure. With a young and developing offensive line, last week proved tough for the Frogs to stop the Cyclones from getting to the TCU quarterbacks. Both the offensive line and Duggan showed improvement today against the rush. When the pocket was collapsing, Duggan didn't hesitate to make a play. His running ability has made him a true threat. Duggan went 20 for 30 with a 66% completion rate. He carried the ball 17 times for 79 yards. - Dallas Morning News

  Taye Barber called it an Aaron Rodgers play. That's exactly what TCU needed and quarterback Max Duggan delivered. Duggan checked into a QB draw at the perfect time - late in the game after Texas had taken its first lead and TCU had to respond - and proceeded to sprint 26 yards through the heart of Texas' defense and into the end zone. That score proved to be the difference in TCU's 33-31 victory over No. 9 Texas on Saturday afternoon at Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. "I saw him check the play and thought, 'You go do what you do Max,'" Barber said. "That's an Aaron Rodgers play. That's his favorite quarterback, so that's what I told him."

Said Duggan: "In that formation, we knew that check would've been good for us. We had a call in that formation and I saw an opening and I did a check and had room for it. We were just really excited to take the lead." TCU is now 7-2 against Texas since joining the Big 12 in 2012. This is a series that started back in 1897 with UT going 13-0-1 in the first 14 games. The Frogs won only seven games in the 41 meetings between the schools from 1956-2007. Saturday also marked the first time an unranked TCU team knocked off a top-10 team on the road since 2011 at Boise State. - Fort Worth Star

  TCU quarterback Max Duggan ran for the go-ahead score with 4 minutes left and the Horned Frogs' defense made it stand with a goal-line fumble recovery to stun No. 9 Texas 33-31 Saturday in a game that had 26 penalties and ended when TCU took a safety as time ran out. Texas looked primed for its second straight fourth-quarter comeback when Sam Ehlinger connected on a 52-yard pass to Keontay Ingram to put the Longohorns in scoring position. But Ingram fumbled on the TCU 1-yard-line with 2:32 to play. Darwin Barlow ran 9 yards to pick up a big first down for the Horned Frogs. Duggan then took a deep snap all the way to the back of the end zone to run out the final 6 seconds.

TCU (1-1, 1-1 Big 12) is now 7-2 against Texas since joining the Big 12 in 2012. The Texas loss delivers another blow to the Big 12's College Football Playoff hopes. The Longhorns (2-1, 1-1) and Oklahoma, who were the league's highest ranked teams, have now dropped early home games to unranked opponents. Duggan made his first start of the season after missing much of training camp while treating a previously undiagnosed heart condition. He passed for 231 yards and ran for 79 more and scored twice. His late 26-yard TD run caught the Texas defense by surprise as he had a clear path to the end zone. Ehlinger threw four touchdown passes on an otherwise difficult day for him. Ehlinger was just 17 of 36. - TCU/AP College Football

  TCU would've preferred to keep Max Duggan on the sidelines the entire game Saturday, coach Gary Patterson revealed on Monday. Duggan had a limited number of practice reps going into the game after being diagnosed with a heart condition that sidelined him for an extended time during training camp. He only returned to practice two weeks ago. That's why Patterson and the offensive coaching staff didn't play Duggan earlier in the season-opening 37-34 loss to Iowa State. Several fans questioned the decision as Duggan had a better day statistically than starter Matthew Downing. "Max had been out almost a month and a half," Patterson said on the Big 12 teleconference Monday.

"People need to understand the procedure he went through and what he had to do. In fact, on the final drive his hands were cramping up even playing a half to play at the level you have to play. "It wasn't a plan. We thought if Matthew Downing did good, we'd protect Max Duggan for one more ball game. He gets back to where he was - he'd be in full strength and condition to be able to play a full ball game. We made the decision at halftime to at least give him two series to see how it turned out. It turned out well, so he stayed in the ball game." Patterson reiterated his belief that injuries shouldn't be the reason players lose their position. "All indications are that'll be the way we do it [with Duggan starting]," Patterson said. - Oakland Tribune

  TCU likes to have options. Last season, Duggan was known for his running ability, which was not discovered until the middle of the season. Duggan showed Saturday that he still has the ability to run despite being out for a big chunk of the preseason due to a heart condition. He ran the ball 10 times during the second half. He also showed his ability to put the ball right in the pocket for the receivers. He went 16-19 in the passing game for 241 yards and 3 touchdowns. The quarterbacks were not the only ones in the game that were a threat in multiple aspects. Both Taye Barber and Emari Demercado had significant plays in positions they are not used to playing. Barber had 3 runs for 11 yards and Demercado had 5 receptions for 42 yards. - Dallas Morning News

  Max Duggan has been cleared to practice and is available to play when TCU opens its season against Iowa State on Saturday. Coach Gary Patterson provided the news during the Big 12 football coaches teleconference on Monday. That does not necessarily mean Duggan will start, though, as Patterson said Matthew Downing has been getting the majority of reps with the first-team. Third-stinger Stephon Brown also has a package in the offense. "Like I said last week, I thought we'd be at full-go. Max has been back for almost two weeks," Patterson said. "Downing is here...Stephon...we have all three." Patterson stopped short of declaring a starter. "I don't know who's going to start," he said. "Downing has been the guy since we've gone. He's slung the ball really well. Right now, we have three quarterbacks. All of them have a part of the package in the game plan and we'll go forward with it." Duggan had been sidelined much of training camp with a lifelong heart condition discovered through enhanced COVID-19 testing protocols. His medical condition was announced in mid-August and his return had no definitive timetable on it given the uncertainty surrounding his diagnosis. - Fort Worth Star

  TCU quarterback Max Duggan isn't sulking about a recent diagnosis that has sidelined him indefinitely. Instead, Duggan is focused on recovering and returning to the football field as soon as possible, his father Jim Duggan told the Star-Telegram on Sunday. "Max is obviously disappointed by the recent developments," Jim Duggan said. "But he's also the kind of kid who has been raised not to feel sorry for himself. He's staying positive. I'm sure when he's given the green light, he'll probably snap his chin strap a little tighter and go to work with a major chip on his shoulder."

Jim Duggan went on to say doctors discovered a heart abnormality on his son during an evaluation with an EKG (electrocardiogram). As TCU coach Gary Patterson said in announcing the news late last week, Jim Duggan reiterated that Max has likely had this condition his entire life and it was not COVID-19 related. "He's been treated for it and is now in the recovery phase," Jim said. "It just went undetected. We're glad that it was found and we had the opportunity to correct it." - Fort Worth Star

  TCU faces uncertainty at the quarterback position with the season opener against SMU just over three weeks away. Projected starter Max Duggan is sidelined with an undisclosed health condition, coach Gary Patterson said on a conference call with team beat reporters Thursday night. Duggan has not practiced much during fall camp and it doesn't sound promising for him to return soon. Duggan has had the undisclosed condition his entire life, Patterson said, but it wasn't discovered until recently with TCU ramping up its testing protocols amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"Because of all the things we had in place, Max has a condition that he's had his whole life and we caught it," Patterson said. "Right now he's in a good place and hopefully he'll be getting back some time during the season. "Right now we'll be going forward with the rest of the quarterbacks. It's a thing he was born with and I'm just glad we found it; I can say that." Patterson didn't venture into a possible timeline for Duggan's return. "I don't know, I'm not the doctor," he said. Duggan played in all 12 games last season, starting the final 10. He finished by going 181 for 339 passing for 2,077 yards with 15 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. He also rushed for 555 yards and six TDs. - Fort Worth Star

  2020 PRESEASON MAXWELL AWARD WATCH LIST: QB Max Duggan, TCU,...Duggan is one of just 15 sophomores nationally on the list. Duggan was honorable-mention Big 12 Offensive Freshman of the Year last season. He was also the Davey O'Brien Award National Quarterback of the Week after leading the Horned Frogs to a 37-27 victory over Texas. Additionally, he was on the 2019-20 Academic All-Big 12 Rookie Team. A native of Council Bluffs, Iowa, Duggan started the final 10 games last year and set TCU true freshman records with 2,077 yards passing and 15 touchdown passes. He placed second on the Horned Frogs with 555 yards rushing and six touchdowns. - TCU Football

  TCU coach Gary Patterson isn't worried about what NFL analysts thought about quarterback Max Duggan or the offensive struggles last season. The Horned Frogs' offense has been scrutinized in recent weeks as professional teams evaluated receiver Jalen Reagor. Reagor's limited production was written off by some NFL teams based on Duggan's play. "[Reagor] played with possibly one of the worst college football quarterbacks I've ever seen in my life," an NFC coordinator told NFL.com. Said another coordinator in the same report: "The Reagor kid is interesting because his quarterback play was so atrocious."

Patterson was aware of the criticisms during the NFL Draft last week, recalling: "I heard Kirk Herbstreit say that [Duggan] was terrible and the offense was terrible. It's easy to say that." The criticism is fair to an extent. TCU had the Big 12's second-worst pass offense and worst pass efficiency rating. Duggan completed only 53.4% of his passes, throwing for 2,077 yards with 15 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. On the flip side, Duggan was only a true freshman and played more than most expected. He flashed promising signs, too, such as his play in victories over Texas and Texas Tech. Just about every Big 12 coach, from Oklahoma's Lincoln Riley to Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy, had good things to say about Duggan throughout the season. "He's an impressive kid, man," Riley said last season. "He's athletic, an aggressive runner and he's got a really good guy [TCU offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie] coaching him, so you know he's going to get better quickly like he has." - Fort Worth Star

  Freshman Max Duggan led touchdown drives on all three of his first-half possessions as TCU scored on every first-half possessions on Saturday and was never threatened in a 51-14 victory over Kansas to open Big 12 play. TCU (3-1, 1-0) dominated in every area of the first half against Kansas (2-3, 0-2), which ended a 48-game road losing streak to Power 5 opponents earlier this season at Boston College. TCU was locked in from the opening kickoff, coming off a home loss to rival SMU a week ago that knocked the Horned Frogs out of the Top 25. The Horned Frogs had some extra motivation as well after losing last year at Kansas.

Duggan started for a second straight game but was replaced midway through the second quarter by graduate transfer Alex Delton with the Horned Frogs in full control at 28-0. Delton, who played last year at Kansas State, led TCU on two scoring drives to end the first half for a 38-0 lead. Duggan, who played all but one snap a week ago against SMU after sharing time the first two weeks, was in for the first two second-half drives before giving way to Delton. Delton led his first touchdown drive of the season in the second quarter and finished 10-for-15 passing for 186 yards. - TCU/AP College Football
