    This is awful news but I'll withhold final judgment until we learn what happened. I assume he'll be suspended though.

    Pepys' diaries were interesting because it was exciting times and the U.K. was on top of the world. You can't help it if the Frogs are playing so poorly that it's not so exciting this year although we're 3-4 and 43rd and our situation isn't quite as bad as Anne Frank's was.

    Week 8 DUSHEE (2018)

    Well, I read it every week. 43rd. Hmmm. Anne Frank's diary wasn't that sad because she didn't know what was going to ultimately happen to her. J

    Sad news in Waco as Sander and Reese lose to the evil Longhorns Sigsgaard and Scott 6-4, 0-6, 5-10 in the semis of the ITA Texas Regionals. But a chance for redemption will now occur as Bertus Kruger takes on Sigsgaard in singles - hopefully, Sigsgaard is tired out from the grueling doubles match.

    This is terribly sad for both parties involved. I hope it's not what it sounds like it is but if it is, I don't want him to play another down. If a young lady is involved, I hope she gets the hell away from him.

    The Music Thread

    On this day in history (from wiki)... Led Zeppelin II is the second album by the English rock band Led Zeppelin, released on 22 October 1969 in the United States and on 31 October 1969 in the United Kingdom by Atlantic Records. Recording sessions for the album took place at several locations in both the United Kingdom and North America from January to August 1969. The album's production was credited to the band's lead guitarist and songwriter Jimmy Page, and it also served as Led Zeppelin's first album to use Eddie Kramer as engineer. Led Zeppelin II exhibited the band's evolving musical style of blues-derived material and their guitar riff-based sound. It has been described as the band's heaviest album.[1] Led Zeppelin II was a commercial success, and was the band's first album to reach number one on charts in the UK and the US. In 1970, the album's cover designer David Juniper was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Recording Package. On 15 November 1999, the album was certified 12× Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for sales passing 12 million copies. Since its release, various writers and music critics have regularly cited Led Zeppelin II as one of the greatest and most influential albums of all time.[2]... In other events on this day, Oct 22 is also International Stuttering awareness Day.

    Week 8 DUSHEE (2018)

    I figure interest in this blog is niche at best, even when the Frogs are playing well. So I assume at this point, I'm just writing this for myself. But nonetheless, for this week's entry in the second saddest diary ever written (allowing that Anne Frank's is probably still a little sadder) ... Clemson reclaims the top spot in the rankings, but it really is just Clemson, Bama, and the rest of the field at this point. There is an almost 10-point gap between those two teams and 3rd ranked Michigan. The Sooners rose to the 4th spot in the rankings, due mostly to Ohio State and Penn State falling significantly. A team I'd like to focus on this week is USF, which if DUSHEE is any judge, may be the worst 7-0 team in the history of major college football. After beating the lowest-ranked DUSHEE team, UConn, by only a TD, DUSHEE now has Charlie Strong's Bulls ranked 94th. That "win" garnered USF a DUSHEE score of -31.40 for the week. When combined with playing the second easiest schedule in FBS ... USF's opponents are, on average, almost 2TDs worse than an average FBS team ... Georgia Tech (ranked 58th), Illinois (114), East Carolina (68), UMass (116), Tulsa (100), UConn (130) ... and only beating that ridiculously easy schedule by an average of 8-points, USF appears to be a paper tiger of the highest order. Things start getting a little tougher for the Bulls next week with @Houston (52), Tulane (95), @Cincinnati (36), @Temple (25), and UCF (30) ... the remaining 5 games include the 4 best teams in the American as rated by DUSHEE. (Although DUSHEE thinks UCF is extremely overrated too, just not as much as USF.) The only one of those 5 games where USF should be favored is the game at home against Tulane and DUSHEE expects the Bulls to be heavy underdogs for all of the other 4 (best chance of winning is 23% at Houston this week). DUSHEE gives USF an 0.05% chance of going undefeated through those 5 games. Frogs Because DUSHEE has OU still very highly rated and had little expectation that the Frogs would be competitive, the Frogs didn't really drop as much as you might think, falling four spots to 43rd. The Frogs week-to-week look like this now: Opp: @ SMU N OhSt @ Tex | ISU Ttech OU PD: 15.80 9.29 -8.50 | 6.00 5.40 -4.33 YD: 20.40 169.71 64.17 | 192.00 118.20 -150.83 Score: 11.51 14.34 -2.58 | 13.22 9.28 -10.13 So it was actually a pretty decent week in the moral victory department for the Frogs. While the performance against OU was judged the worst of the season, and the walloping that Purdue put on Ohio State really dropped the Frogs' comparative score against the Buckeyes a ton, the wins against SMU and Iowa State are looking solid at this point, and even the loss to Tech looks pretty decent with Tech's excellent play of late. As of this moment, only the Texas and Oklahoma games look like total turds. Believe it or not (I expect most will not), DUSHEE has the Frogs as favorites for 4 of the remaining 5 games: @Kansas +12 (67% chance Frogs win) Kansas St. +12.5 (72%) @West Virginia -7.5 (34%) @Baylor +0.5 (51%) Oklahoma St. +4 (56%) As of now, the Frogs have played the 4th toughest schedule in FBS, according to DUSHEE. Although, that will take a hit this week as the Frogs play ... Frogs Next Opponent (Kansas) Playing Kansas is generally the salve that calms troubled football teams, but God knows that has rarely been the case for the Frogs. After showing some signs early in the season that the Jayhawks might have improved a little this season (ignoring Nichols St., as DUSHEE does), Kansas has returned to form of late, and seems to be in turmoil after dumping Meachem. Hopefully, the Frogs take care of business as they did last year. As mentioned above, DUSHEE has the Frogs as 12-point favorites on the road. Opp: @ CMU Rut @ Bay | OkSt @ WVU @ Ttech PD: 12.33 25.57 -25.40 | -16.80 -4.25 -29.40 YD: 18.67 148.71 -154.00 | -194.40 -205.00 -207.00 Score: 9.12 24.19 -24.33 | -20.54 -12.68 -29.54 So after looking like a reasonable football team against two other really bad teams (CMU and Rutgers), Kansas has returned to form in conference play, getting pounded by everybody by at least 3 TDs.

    TCU Tennis 2018-19

    Other than Cam losing, it's good news for the Frogs so far on this busy Sunday. Bertus Kruger beat Longhorn Chih Chi Huang 6-3, 7-5 at the ITA Texas Regionals in Waco and has advanced to the quarters where he will face another Longhorn - Harrison Scott. Ali Gray beat Longhorn recruit Leighton Allen 6-3, 7-6 (7-5) in the qualies at the first Waco Futures tourney and has advanced to the 3rd round where he will play Jonathan Chang (ATP #1393). If he wins that, he'll be into the main draw. And Alex Rybakov has just started against Ortega-Olmedo at the Vegas Challenger and it's 2-3 in the first set. 2-4. Ouch. As soon as I start following the match, Rybo goes down a break. 3-4. Alex is ranked #525 - Ortega-Olmedo is #315. 4-all! Even on serve! Rybo has earned $11,315 this season; clearly his best year ever. Is it enough to go pro full-time? Probably not. 5-4! Alex has 63 current ATP points. 5-all. The Spaniard holds. 6-5! One more game and Alexandrovich will take the set. 6-all. Into the breaker for the first set. Aw mman. 6-7. Alex loses the first set. 2-all in the 2nd. 2-3. Rybo goes down a break. 3-3. Alex breaks back and it's even. 4-5. (sigh) Rybo falls 6-7, 4-6 and goes out early in a Challenger yet again. De ja vu. (I think he should be playing and winning Futures).

    East side construction

    Halfway through the season with the east side of Amon Carter a construction zone. Has anyone seen any sign that there is any work actually being done?
  25. I parked at St. Stephen's Church for the OU game. There were few people using that location, just three of us on the ride over. I'd say the line to board for return trip after the game was a tenth of the lines for Travis and Paschal. The bus was a van like used at Travis, ride was comfortable and quick both ways, as we didn't have traffic on that route after we crossed University. Parking costs $20 which I was told would go to support the church's missionary and children's programs. Could be worth it if you are in a hurry after the game and want to avoid a long line. If you want to try to avoid that fee, the weather is good and you don't mind a short walk, there is a lot in the arm of Forest Park just downhill from the church. I think I will be parking and riding from Travis for the final two games this season.

    It's 2018 College Pick'em Time!

    As mentioned above, DUSHEE was our big winner this week with one point shy of a perfect score! I'm sure Mean Joe was also disappointed in his squad's finish, so we're all in good company (save Newf, who is a secret Alabama-Birmingham fan). Speaking of, Newf made it to second place this week and if it hadn't been for Cinci blowing their chance in OT, a lot of other pickers in our game would have been in a better place with him. Mercenary Librarian comes in third with a bold pick of Miss. State against LSU, luckily only giving the Bulldogs one point. Interestingly, with the DUSH's near-perfect score, it means there was betting AGAINST the Frogs happening there. As it happens, the majority of pickers this week picked OU. The allure of the prize package for our game's ultimate winner is highly motivational, I'm sure, and a key factor in this behavior. The Frog pickers mainly placed the team at the very bottom of the list. (I'd like to recognize TexansDad37 for standing in solidarity with me by placing our team at #10. Riff Ram, brother!) Hopefully, TCU won't be on anymore ballots this season and we won't have this dilemma again. Overall, with his big win in week 8, defending champion DUSHEE has taken the lead in our game! PD has been knocked off her lofty perch to second place and gofrogs152 is not far behind in third place. Only 14 points separate the five top positions. Keep playing, Frog Fans! We're getting into the stretch.

    Outstanding work! The Mean Green confounded all of us this week, except for Newfoundland. You rocked it, dude! 👏🏻
