Pachall would four of his six pass attempts in that game for 54 yards and a touchdown, also adding 22 rushing yards on five carries and a score.
While Dalton might have been the winningest quarterback in school history, Pachall has the ability to put up similar or better numbers if he does stay for two years as as starter.
He is not your prototypical pocket passers. Pachall pull it down and take off with more speed than Dalton brought to the position. He has great arm strength and the ability to thread the needle when needed. Pachall will force defenses to stay honest when he is either under center or from the shotgun position.
Pachall will being a whole new dynamic to the TCU offense, one that hasn't been seen for quite some time. You can not expect a first year starter to come in and duplicate what Dalton did for this football program. But there is absolutely no doubt that Pachall has the ability to bring his own style to the offense and make this team look much different offensively than it did last season.
He is going to have his first year problems and jitters when he's out on the field, but once he gets comfortable in the offense and with his teammates, this young man might be a hard one to stop.
