TCU came into the season shooting for a fifth straight trip to the College World Series. With a month left in the regular season, the Horned Frogs will be hard-pressed to even make the NCAA Tournament. The Frogs (19-17, 6-8) are fifth in the Big 12 and No. 86 in the RPI after losing three straight at Baylor over the weekend. They'll likely have to win the Big 12 Tournament to make an NCAA regional for the 14th time in 15 years. "No question about that," coach Jim Schlossnagle said Monday. "If we went on some crazy run, we might be able to do it. It's certainly headed toward a conference tournament situation." For the second straight year, TCU will finish the season without offensive star Luken Baker.
