    The continuing saga of Baylor Athletics

    http://www.theonion.com/article/mom-finds-disturbing-reading-material-teenage-sons-56110 OMAHA, NE—Saying she felt disgusted and saddened by the shocking discovery, local woman Beth Loomis told reporters Thursday that she was deeply disturbed after finding recruitment reading material from the Baylor University football team in her teenage son’s bedroom. “I was taking the sheets off Ryan’s bed for washing, and I happened to notice some of these vile images just sitting there tucked underneath his pillow,”

    With injuries left and right, and having to play the top teams in conference on the road, a co-championship in an absolutely stacked league is a very solid achievement.

    The Sports Dump

    This week I'm in Bangkok. I went out Sunday morning looking for breakfast and in an eating joint window saw a sign advertising "USA Cowboy Tacos." Okay, I'm fool enough to try it...so I ordered the tacos and waited to be disappointed. I was not disappointed. These were head-and-shoulders above anything Taco Bell ever produced, and would be worthy of at least a "B" grade in San Antonio or El Paso. I'm tellin' ya, these are some good tacos, right here in SE Asia. https://www.sunrisetacos.com/

    The Sports Dump

    Was at a sci-fi/fantasy/cosplay convention this weekend (Jewel Staite is a bit bitchy, but Neelix (Ethan Phillips) as well as Faun/Pale Man/Silver Surfer/Abe Sabien (Doug Jones) were both fun). Anyway, the local girls roller derby team had a table and I got to mentioning I used to go to roller derby games back in the 60s when it was on those inclined tracks in sweaty, old, wooden sportatoriums. I almost didn't get away. They wanted to hear about the old days. I now have links to their home page, their facebook page, and have a printout of their schedule. Haven't been so surrounded by so many healthy young women wanting to listen to me for, uh, well just about forever!

    Don Meredith, Dallas Cowboys Quarterback once said : “Coach Tom Landry is such a perfectionist that if he was married to Raquel Welch, he would expect her to cook.” "Last year we couldn't win at home and we were losing on the road My failure as a coach was that I couldn't think of anyplace else to play.”- Harry Neale, professional hockey coach "Blind people come to the ballpark just to listen to him pitch."- Reggie Jackson commenting on Tom Seaver. "I'm working as hard as I can to get my life and my cash to run out at the same time. If I can just die after lunch Tuesday, everything will be perfect."- Doug Sanders, professional golfer "All the fat guys watch me and say to their wives, 'See, there's a fat guy doing okay. Bring me another beer.'"- Mickey Lolich, Detroit Tigers pitcher "When it's third and ten, you can have the milk drinkers; I'll take the whiskey drinkers every time."- Max McGee, Green Bay Packers receiver "I found out that it's not good to talk about my troubles. Eighty percent of the people who hear them don't care and the other twenty percent are glad I'm having them."- Tommy LaSorda , L A Dodgers manager "My knees look like they lost a knife fight with a midget."- E.J. Holub, Kansas City Chiefs linebacker regarding his 12 knee operations "My theory is that if you buy an ice-cream cone and make it hit your mouth, you can learn to play tennis. If you stick it on your forehead, your chances aren't as good.” - Vic Braden, tennis instructor "When they operated, I told them to add in a Koufax fastball. They did, but unfortunately it was Mrs. Koufax's."- Tommy John , N.Y. Yankees, recalling his 1974 arm surgery "I don't know. I only played there for nine years."- Walt Garrison, Dallas Cowboys fullback when asked if Tom Landry ever smiles. "We were tipping off our plays. Whenever we broke from the huddle, three backs were laughing and one was pale as a ghost.” - John Breen, Houston Oilers "The film looks suspiciously like the game itself."- Bum Phillips, New Orleans Saints, after viewing a lopsided loss to the Atlanta Falcons. When I'm on the road, my greatest ambition is to get a standing boo."- Al Hrabosky, major league relief pitcher "I have discovered in 20 years of moving around the ball park that the knowledge of the game is usually in inverse proportion to the price of the seats."- Bill Veeck, Chicago White Sox owner. “Because if it didn't work out, I didn't want to blow the whole day."- Paul Horning, Green Bay Packers running back on why his marriage ceremony was before noon. "I have a lifetime contract. That means I can't be fired during the third quarter if we're ahead and moving the ball."- Lou Holtz , Arkansas football coach "I won't know until my barber tells me on Monday."- Knute Rockne, when asked why Notre Dame had lost a game "I tell him "Attaway to hit, George."- Jim Frey, K.C. Royals manager when asked what advice he gives George Brett on hitting.

    YESSS!!! Rybakov takes the breaker and the Frogs advance to the Elite 8!! We're 22-4, we've won 17 straight!!! (And OU is currently leading Ohio State). It's 3-2 OU leading and it's all coming down to Papa v. Torp and Harris v. Wolf in their 3rd sets. OU trails 4-2 in both currently. They just announced that, for the first time ever, the NCAA tennis finals (on Tuesday) will be covered live on ESPNU! It sure would be nice if TCU could be one of the teams participating! Torp up 5-4 over Papa; Harris-Wolf at 4-4. Torp wins and it's 3-3. Wolf leads 5-4 - even on serve.

    Very good read about Jalen Reagor.

    Unfortunately for Jalen and Kenedy the Indians finished fifth overall. They ran their fastest times of the year in the 4x100 and 4x200 relays, but they just did not have enough to match up in a loaded 5A relay field. PA Memorial set a Conference Record in the 4x100 and a National Record in the 4x200. LSU recruit Kary Vincent also won the 200M in a state's best 20.7 and Manvel won the overall Boys' State Title. Congrats on the efforts for Jalen and Kenedy and to wrapping up their high school careers. Enjoy your time off before coming to campus and please, please, please catch the ball next year.

    TCU Tennis - 2016-17

    The Frogs won the doubles point easily. Singles is now starting. For some reason (I think it's because we're heavily favored), Norrie is not playing and Gianni Mancini is playing instead. Everyone has moved up one spot - let's hope Cam isn't injured. He did play doubles though (and Rybakov didn't). There's no real need to list the scores. All but Gianni Mancini (2-3) are leading huge. We've now won 5 of 6 first sets - only Mancini lost his. Rybo wins 6-1, 6-0 and it's 2-0. Stalder wins 6-2, 6-1 and it's 3-0. It's a race between Nunez, Lopez and Johnson to see who can clinch it. Nunez wins 6-1, 6-1 and the Frogs beat Jackson State 4-0 and advance to the Round of 32.

    Very good read about Jalen Reagor.

    Congrats to Jalen for winning the 2017 UIL 5A Boys Long Jump Title at the State Meet this morning. He did not come close to setting the record which was his goal, but Jalen shook off a slow start and hit his two longest jumps to win the competition. Reagor and fellow future Frog Kennedy Snell have two races later today in the 4X100 and 4x200 relays. You might have seen the article in yesterday's FWST that covered how Reagor and Snell bypassed graduating early so that they could take one final run at winning a state track title for Waxahachie. http://www.star-telegram.com/sports/college/big-12/texas-christian-university/article149983092.html#navlink=SecList That is going to be tough as Manvel projects to win the 5A Boys title, but as someone much smarter than me said there is a reason why you run the races, play the game, etc.......

    -Arrieta struck out 7 Phillies in 6 innings of work in his last start, picking up the W to improve to 4-1 and ticking his ERA down slightly from 4.66 to 4.63. On the season, he has 41 K's to just 9 BB. His next start is Monday night against the Rockies in Denver. -Cashner continues to pitch fairly well for the Rangers - he's gone 6 innings in his last two starts, though he took a loss and a no-decision. He's now 0-3, but his ERA is 2.63 -Carpenter is on fire, hitting 9-for-26 (.347) over the past 7 games - and he's homered in three straight. He's now hitting .264 for the season, with 7 HR & 20 RBI. -Still no timetable for Finnegan's return as he deals with shoulder issues.

    I don't think our pitching is bad or sub-par. I do think it is taxed on depth right now with our best pitcher being injured. Then we have another starter who has just come back from injury and is trying to work back into form and is only back up to a high of 4 innings in a game at the moment. Leading up to this weekend, we were 11th nationally in strike out to walk ratio, 8th in strikeouts per 9 innings, and 16th in hits allowed per 9 innings. You don't have a bad pitching staff with those kind of numbers, even if your pitchers had some patches of meltdown innings. Tech is a really good team, and they have their offense clicking. This weekend they had their first top-tier conference test, at home, against us with one of our hands tied behind our back (no Janczak). They lost one, and were losing the next one (with their ace pitcher on the mound) when the traits of their ballpark were neutralized (rain and no wind to give balls a free ride). Then they got a break and got to play their normal baseball, which allowed them to come back to win the remainder of the suspended game off a fly ball that would have died out the day before. Then they pasted us after our emotional pitcher got behind too far for us to come back. I don't know if we have the potential to make a deep post-season run or not. I do know that the talent level won't be the issue that prevents us from doing that. Instead, if we are stymied, it will be because of depth. I also know that worse teams than this one have won National Championships in Omaha. Enjoy the ride for whatever it is and might turn out to be, because by mid-July, you won't have anything to watch at all. The B12 Standings after this weekend: TCU 12-6, 31-11 overall, ↓2 TTU 11-7 (1 game behind), 36-12 overall, ↑2 WVU 10-8 (2 games behind), 25-17 overall, ↓2 OU 8-7 (2.5 games behind), 30-16 overall, ↑2 UT 9-8* (2.5 games behind), 30-16 overall, ↑2 KU 9-9 (3 games behind), 22-22 overall, ↑1 BU 8-10 (4 games behind), 27-17 overall, ↓1 OSU 6-11*, (5.5 games behind), 23-18 overall, ↓2 KSU 4-11, (6.5 games behind), 24-20 overall, ↑3 (*UT and OSU only played 2 games out of their series because of weather/field conditions; UT swept OSU 2-0.)
