    TCU Tennis 2018-19

    It looks like Cam will now certainly remain Scotland's top tennis player because Andy Murray gave a tearful press conference today saying that, even after hip surgery, he has way too much pain to continue playing and strongly hinted at retirement. 1-love in the 3rd as Cam doesn't get broken in the first game this time. YES! This time, Cam gets the early break and takes a 2-love lead! 3-love! Cam holds but had to save a break point to do so. 3-1. Struff's not giving up yet. 4-1. Cam holds at love. The women's match is finally over and The Tennis Channel is now switching live to Auckland! 4-2. 5-2! Yet another love hold! 5-3. Struff uncorks some powerful serves and holds easily. But all Norrie needs is to win one more service game. Cam may be choking - 2 straight DF's to go down love-30. He's never made an ATP final... But 4 straight winning points and Cam makes the finals at Auckland (to loud Kiwi cheers)!!!! Tennys Sandgren next. Can Cam do it!!

    There should now be a vote on whether those 49 get to remain on the Tarrant County Republican Party’s executive committee ...

    TCU Tennis 2018-19

    Based on the rankings, today's match against Mississippi State could well be the toughest of the year for the Frogs this Spring. The Bulldogs were also victorious yesterday against the Illini and blitzed to 5 singles W's as well. (And the Frogs' W was somewhat attenuated by the fact that Arizona State has some early season injuries and some of their players sat out our match - Roditi cautioned that their line-up will be different when we face them again in the ITA Kickoff in a few weeks). Our line-up was Rybo, Stalder, Fomba, Gray and Roldan (and Bertus Kruger would have played if the ASU team had been healthier). This indicates to me that Roditi is relying on Stalder (as a senior), that Fomba is probably better than advertised and that Gray either hasn't recovered fully from his leg injury or that his layoff hurt his development - it's still early though and you have to expect some sort of experimentation. Like yesterday, there won't be any live scores or streaming, so results will be announced on TCU's twitter page at some point (but I'm not going to be sitting around waiting for hours). Cam's ATP ranking is projected to go up to #68 if he loses tonight and far higher if he wins his first ever ATP tourney at home in Auckland. But Sandgren has been hot too and will be a tough out - he has the best stats of any player in this tourney (service W's, aces; straight set W's etc...) and he's ranked 63rd now and is projected to jump into the Top 50 regardless of whether he wins the title. All of Cam's friends in Auckland have apparently contacted him for tickets (as well as some "friends" he didn't know he had) - the Kiwi press has gone agog at the prospect of a local winning and it's really quite a story there. By contrast, in the U.K., Andy Murray's possible injury-forced retirement is getting far more attention - he's hoping to play until Wimbledon if he can make it that far. The match is scheduled for 7:30 (CST) and I'll still be at work - but it should be on the Tennis Channel so maybe someone else can report the happenings.

    https://ca.sports.yahoo.com/news/northwestern-fan-emily-harriott-shrieker-stay-quiet-basketball-games-221523084.html article about a Northwestern fan who has been asked to stop shrieking loudly at games. This paragraph stood out: Noisy, obnoxious fans are nothing new to college athletics. Mississippi State fans ring cowbells. TCU has fans who call themselves “Woo Birds” after Ric Flair’s iconic yell. But it’s fairly rare for a school to specifically call out a single fan.

    Finally! The results are in for the Frogs' first match of the year and TCU was victorious over the Sun Devils in Tempe with victories in singles by Alex Rybakov (6-2, 6-1), Reese Stalder (6-4, 7-6 (7-5)), Luc Fomba (6-4, 6-4) and Alastair Gray (6-4, 7-6 (7-4)) and a loss by Eduardo Roldan (5-7, 1-6 ). And in doubles Rybo and Gray won 6-3, Stalder and Kruger won 6-3 and Fomba and Sander Jong lost 4-6. This is a good result for the Frogs - because it wasn't billed as a dual match, I'm not sure if it'll count in the official standings and will be considered as an exhibition, but to open with a strong W over the #24 team is a positive development. Tomorrow, though, it's #3 Mississippi State and Nuno Borges.

    I disagree about not needing a QB. As of right now, our only healthy QB on the roster is a true freshman who just arrived in campus a week ago. In fact, Duggan will likely be running with the 1's in spring ball. I know Rogers took a couple snaps in the bowl game, but he's still not 100%. I think getting a transfer, even if it's not Hurts, is essential at the very least for depth. But I 100% agree we need a transfer DE. Not that I don't think our projected starters aren't capable, they're just very unproven and young. That a position we need experience/leadership.

    Norrie v. Fritz has started in Auckland in the quarter-finals and, so far, it's even on serve with Fritz leading 3-2. The Tennis Channel is covering this one and the Tsitsipas match in Sydney. 3-all. Cam is wearing orange and black. The Tennis Channel announcers are very pro-Fritz. 3-4. Norrie got a break point but couldn't convert. 4-all. Cam holds (barely). Fritz has a monster forehand. 4-5. Yet again, a break chance missed. 5-all. Still no breaks, but this match is not like an Isner match, with dominant serving. Very competitive. 5-6. 6-all. Into the breaker. Fritz led the tour in tiebreak W's last year and won 2 yesterday against Isner. Woo Hoo! Cam takes the breaker 7-3!! And now leads by a set over the guy the Tennis Channel (i.e., Jimmy Arias) thinks is the way better player. 1-0. Cam holds at love in the first game of set 2. 1-all. Norrie had 3 break points but Fritz got a big hold. 2-1. The Camster holds easily. 2-all. Arias has been ragging on Norrie all match but finally says something good... 3-2. Cam is fooling Fritz big time on virtually every serve. 3-all. 4-3. It's still really close, but Fritz's body language is defeatist. 5-3!!! Cam gets the first break of the entire match!!! One more hold and he's into the semis!! Yet again, Cam beats a player that hits better, serves better, is ranked much higher and the commentators think will win. 7-6 (7-3), 6-3!! He'll now face the winner between Carreno Busta and Struff for a berth in the Auckland finals!

    Sure! In a privatized form. Just don’t make me pay for it. Unless of course I want to utilize their services and see benefit.

    The FDA thing is a perfect example of how the free market works. Okay, so maybe a few people get hurt, get sick, or even (gasp) die. From some bad lettuce, or bell peppers or chicken or whatever. Guess what, the market will then respond accordingly and it will get fixed. This whole "if we just save 1 life" nonsense in order to give up individual liberties is what chaps my ass.

    Curling growing!... Jared Allen ...A four-time All Pro and five-time Pro Bowler, Allen is likely a Pro Football Hall of Fame candidate when he becomes eligible in 2021. But he has some major plans for 2022. Allen has Olympic aspirations in curling. His teammates are three former NFL players in quarterback Marc Bulger, linebacker Keith Bulluck and offensive tackle Michael Roos.

    I think that is one of those things that is easy to say with the privilege of living in a country that has a regulatory structure in place to warn business, doctors, and the people at large of unsafe conditions with their food supply. You may not have "needed" the FDA (and CDC) to caution your favorite restaurant not to put romaine lettuce in your salad over the last few months because much of the supply was tainted with E. coli, but you didn't really have to worry about the alternative because you live here.

    Noteboom, Pryor and Cannon are still in the playoffs. Maybe Howard too but I'm not sure what has happened with him and the Rams. IR, practice squad or cut?

    It appears as if Hurts is strongly considering us but Maryland may have the inside edge with the Bama OC Locksley going there. If he doesn't commit to Maryland on his visit there this weekend and we get him on campus next week, I think we'll probably get him. I just have a feeling that coming home to Texas and running a wide open Big 12 offense in a conference with suspect defenses will appeal to him.
