    That was a great game. Tyler can no longer get out of bed so we moved the 55 inch TV into his bedroom and watched it there. He managed to stay awake for the entire game which is quite a feat right now. He was swinging the foam "sword of defense" throughout the game. Think he might have been our lucky charm today.

    College football is back full time but instead of watching a game, I just spent two hours reading a 25 page thread about a bimbo who wins a lottery. I believe it was more entertaining than any game I've ever watched. I need to visit the General Board more often.

    So to expand on my "KF.c poster-as-product" rant, I realize that the monetization of browsing histories is a massive and pretty much irreversible trend. Google, Facebook, and most "free" sites use cookies and sell browsing history to advertisers. (Check out the "Adam Ruins Everything" episode entitled "Adam Ruins the Internet" for an informative discussion on this.) So when I log on to the Shagg or other free sites with ads, I understand why I keep seeing ads for Honda 2000i generators, Yeti ice chests, Swedish penis-enlargement pumps, and other things I've been browsing recently. I accept that loss of privacy without too much angst. But if my personal browsing history is going to benefit someone monetarily, then in return, that beneficiary should at least provide me a pleasant experience when I'm on their site. And that beneficiary had damned well better not take a high-handed, authoritarian tone toward me and treat me as if I am some kind of "subordinate." IMHO, THAT is what Scott and Wes missed and THAT'S why I don't go there anymore. In other words, you can screw me, but you gotta at least buy me a nice dinner first. But you know what? KF.c is doing just fine without me, so maybe they didn't miss anything after all. Of course, I'm doing just fine without KF.c, too.

    Roddog was certainly an irritant, but Scott banning loyal longtime (and kf.c dues paying) TCU fans for expressing opinions counter to his own while he (and wes) stood behind hate and nonsense spewing trolls who had nothing or little to do with TCU is the sole cause for me being here. Which I guess was part and parcel to the roddog problem, but he was a symptom, not the disease ...

    Things are looking up, with a long road to hoe. My brother and several friends have organized a work group that is going house to house (theirs), all working on one house at a time, pulling all flooring and cutting out the affected sheetrock. One house is done, and they are now on my brothers house, should be done tonight. The 17 year old is staying at a friends home, and the 2 younger boys are at their Aunt's house, nearby, who stayed dry. They couldn't get there until yesterday. Brother and Sil are staying at his Mil home, 4 blocks from his. They had time to get nearly everything upstairs, so stuff is not a problem. 3 vehicles, garage stuff (refrig, 4 wheeler, couch, lawn equipment) and the affected part of his house. Tools, trailer and the like will be fine. He thanks everyone for the good thoughts and prayers, and says they'll still need them in the coming weeks.

    It was clear that Hyman had it in for A&M when his family rooted for TCU in the 2010 Rose Bowl (even though he was still at South Carolina). Then, when he failed to bully the NCAA into forcing TCU to go to A&M for that baseball super-regional, it became even more clear that he hated A&M. But then, when he imposed a rule that third basemen transfers had to wear gigantic class rings and that forced Boomer to boot that grounder that caused the Aggies to lose the next super-regional, it was crystal clear that he and A&M weren't a good fit.

    Here is me and my friend from law school who went to Ark. We made an agreement to go to the home and home back when it was first announced in like 2011. He came to TCU last year so I had to hold up my part of the deal. That's the limo we rented and decked out with TCU flags for the game.

    I think it was gofrogs152 that put it perfectly in stating that there are a group of people over there that act like a bunch of junior high school kids that when one person starts in on someone then all of their buddies jump in on the bullying. Anyway, Roddog's bit was funny for a little while but then it just got old and repetitive really quick and it was just to the point where you had to put him on ignore. Feisty provides insight on recruiting targets and kids that are committed to the program and I think some of us, I know I have, have gone on drunken rants on the message boards and feel bad about it the next day. Overall the Frog Horn is a great place for normal minded TCU fans without having to watch your language even when making a donation to this site. Which was a real head scratcher on the other site. Pay money and don't post any swear words? Bullshit.

    TGBDS: Epic Randomness

    My 12 year old has never played a down of football. He's always played baseball and soccer and shown no interest in football. The 7th Grade Football coach asked my son if he'd consider kicking for the team. He started going to practice and all of a sudden started playing Quarterback and WR. They had their first game last night. He was the placekicker and wide receiver to start the game. He kicked well but never got the opportunity to kick field goals or extra points. They got down early 16-0. Then they put my son in at Quarterback. He led them to a 24 point comeback only to lose 24-26 on a failed 2 point conversion on a QB sneak and then a failed on side kick attempt.

    I think it's cool that we were on CBS and then two weeks later we're gonna be on ABC. And we'll probably be on Fox later this season. Quite a far cry from when the WAC-16 broke up and I thought that we'd never be on any kind of TV again, let alone nationally broadcast over-the-air networks. But we really really need to beat Oklahoma State to deserve this kind of coverage. And before that, we need to pulverize SMU and send them back to University Park with their tails between their legs.

    A sports media type from Houston just tweeted that he'd spoken with David Bailiff. Rice is en route home from Australia and will stay at TCU until they can go home to Houston. Hopefully there are opportunities for the FW community to pitch in to make these kids feel welcome.

    Last year, the Arkansas game told us all we needed to know about the 2016 Frogs - though we didn't know it at the time. I expect that this year's Arkansas game will tell us everything we need to know about the 2017 Frogs.

    Facebook Post from my brother to his son, today: Happy 16th Birthday to my son TannerXXX! We probably aren't going to celebrate with cake and candles today thanks to Harvey! Your Birthday car is in our driveway but it's underwater, so we will have to regroup on that as well. In light of our current situation and inability to hold to Birthday traditions, this will not be a normal Birthday. That's Ok cause you aren't a normal kid and that's a good thing! Your mom and I very proud of the young man you are becoming. We'll do the normal celebration when things are back to normal hopefully that's before you turn 17! Until then- A very merry unbirthday to you, To you, A very merry Unbirthday to you, To you, It's great to Drink to someone, And I guess that You will do, A very merry Unbirthday to you! - The Mad Hatter!!! Love you Tanner!

    TCU will host Rice's football team

    TCU invites Rice football to use facilities during Houston flooding Matt Jennings @MattAJennings Posted 3 hours ago TCU football is helping out another in-state program in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. The Horned Frogs will share their facilities with the Rice football team this week. “For us, it’s a no-brainer,” TCU coach Gary Patterson said. “We’ll work our schedule out where they can practice.” The Horned Frogs also offered similar sanctuary to Houston, Patterson said. Instead, the Cougars chose to go relocate in Austin. Patterson says he shares empathy for all of the Rice players and coaches. The Owls are coming off a 62-7 loss to Stanford Saturday night in Australia. “It must have been a tough feeling playing in Australia knowing everything you own might be gone,” Patterson said. “Those kids are worrying about their families but also their (living surroundings) back home.” The Owls weren’t in Houston when the storm made landfall. They are coming from Los Angeles as they return from their first game. The Owls will land in at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport on Monday at approximately 2 p.m. CT, according to a release from the school. The Frogs have an indoor practice facility as well as outdoor practice fields. Owls head coach David Bailiff said Baylor, SMU and UTEP also offered to host his team this week. Bailiff and TCU coach Gary Patterson are long-time friends. Bailiff joined Patterson’s staff during his second season in 2001 as the Horned Frogs’ assistant head coach and defensive line coach. He served as defensive coordinator in 2002-03 before getting his first shot as a college head coach in 2004 at Texas State. “David Bailiff worked here, but whether he did or didn’t, it wouldn’t matter,” Patterson said. “Whatever we can do to help Coach Bailiff. Rice’s campus is closed through Tuesday, but it isn’t clear how soon the team will return to Houston. Harvey has been downgraded to a tropical storm, but Houston and the surrounding areas are still dealing with flooding and major property damage. TCU hosts Jackson State in its season opener Saturday at 7 p.m. CT. Rice does not have a game this week. The Owls’ next game is at UTEP on Sept. 9.

    The last round of storms knocked out my power, but I have a charge in my tablet and wanted to reply to zebra's post. The two reservoirs releasing water are in Houston. It will just take time to get to downtown through buffalo bayou. Buffalo bayou is no where near Spring, so the effect on zebra's daughter should be very little to none. So don't let that aspect worry you. also the national media are rather clueless from what I saw earlier. 500year flood simply means .2% of happening. Local news explained it as they have no idea what happened here 500years ago. The national news is looking for ratings. while things are severe and can get worse, there have been few fatalities. The local govt and residents have been great about helping people. A lot of discomfort and loss of possessions, but hopefully most everyone should come through.
