    There's been some chatter in the 'NBA Opinions' thread about the Frogs playing in this year's summer league - but I figured they warranted their own thread for those that want to know how they're doing and don't want to sort through free agency drama and whatnot. In addition to Vlad and Kenny Hustle, fellow Frog Garlon Green is also getting a shot in this year's Vegas Summer League with the New Orleans Pelicans after playing in Europe for several years. All three start their summer league seasons on Friday: -Garlon Green/Pelicans vs. Raprots - 2:30pm CT on ESPN-U -Vladimir Brodziansky/Cavs vs. Wizards - 8:00pm CT on NBA TV -Kenrich Williams/Nuggets vs. T'Wolves - 10:00pm CT on NBA TV Full schedule here.

    It doesn't really concern me how Baylor is destroyed and ceases to exist as a university, just as long as I get to pee on the wreckage.

    Unfortunately, The Trevor is losing to Peniston (not sure how it's pronounced), a Brit who plays for Memphis 2-6, 2-5 and seems likely to fall, but the Red Widow currently is upsetting the Cav Altamirano 6-3, 1-0, which would qualify for a major upset if he could win. Trevor falls to Peniston 2-6, 2-6, but Reese is now up 6-3, 2-0 on Altamirano. 3-0! Reese goes up 2 breaks! Welcome to the ATP rankings Mr. Stalder! 4-0! The Red Widow is rolling! 5-1. Wow! Playing the best tennis of his life, Reese Stalder blasts his way (3 and 1) into the quarters at Wichita! That's 5 straight match W's and 10 straight set W's!! Not sure who he plays next, but Vuks and Andy Harris are still in it. This is the tourney that the Camster won just 3 years ago. Could Reese duplicate that feat and add to the list of Frog winners this summer? I just looked it up - a chance for Frog revenge as Reese will face Peniston tomorrow.

    Final appearance for the Schobel brothers/cousins in the countdown ... No picture found for Keith Flowers wearing #64 for the 1952 Dallas Texans, but here is one wearing #64 (I think) for the Frogs ...

    I'm gonna go ahead and go off the deep end here: I'm starting to think that the win-at-all-costs mentality was a symptom, not the underlying problem. The underlying problem may be a Baptist thing, or at least a certain sect of Baptist thing. It's not hard for me to believe that when a religion declares that a wife should "...submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband..." ( check out section XVIII - The Family at http://www.sbc.net/bfm2000/bfm2000.asp ), that some members of that religion will develop an attitude that females are lesser than males. And it's not a giant leap from there to conclude, either consciously or subconsciously, that females' interests are less important than males'. Or that when a woman is raped, her immediate well-being and legal due process are secondary to church doctrine and public image ( https://www.christianpost.com/news/paige-patterson-fired-lies-rape-victim-break-her-down-board-trustees-chair-southwestern-baptist-theological-seminary-224603/ ). This isn't just an Art Briles thing. It isn't just a Baylor thing. It's a Southern Baptist thing. And it's been going on for a LONG time ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Cowper_Brann ). And yes, I know that Baylor and the Southern Baptist Convention broke ties awhile back. But that doesn't mean that the attitudes and prejudices of powerful people at Baylor aren't still influenced by other powerful Baptists. Okay, that was a refreshing little swim. I'll climb up out of the deep end now...

    I'm at the Sanford Mainers vs. Valley Blue Sox game. All three Horned Frogs are in the starting lineup for Sanford. Rizer hitting third, solo HR to right his first time up.

    YESSS!! The Red Widow upset Strode 7-6 (7-5), 6-2 and has won a round in a main draw of an ATP tourney and will now be ranked for the first time ever! He's won 8 straight sets and 4 straight matches and both he and The Trevor will be in the Round of 16 tomorrow in Wichita. Stalder will play ex-Virginia Cavalier Collin Altamirano and Trevor will play Brit Ryan Peniston (both scheduled for 10:30 a.m.).

    -Arrieta took a no-decision in his last start - giving up 2 earned runs on 4 hits and 2 walks in 5 IP against the Nationals. He's now 5-6 on the year with a 3.54 ERA. His 61 K's against 29 BBs for the year for a ration of 2.10:1 - well short of what he was producing in his prime seasons with the Cubs. Next scheduled start is Saturday afternoon in Pittsburgh. -Carpenter has stayed hot recently. He's 13-for-34 (.382) over the last 10 games - including 7 extra-base hits and 8 drawn walks. He's now batting .255 for the year with 15 HR, 36 RBI and an .861 OPS. -Cashner has now registered a no-decision in three straight starts, although he's shaved a half-point off of his ERA by giving up just 4 runs in 16 total IP in that span. He remains 2-8 on the year with a 4.48 ERA. Next scheduled start is Thursday night in Minneapolis. -Holaday collected three base hits and drove in a run over the past week. His average for the season stays level since the last update - .179 - and he has 7 total RBI on the year.

    The Wimbledon draw was announced and Cam Norrie will be playing Aljaz Bedene (pronounced Bed-a-nay), a Slovenian who is ranked #71 and has won 5 Futures titles and 14 Challenger titles in his career. Bedene was naturalized as a U.K. citizen and played as such from 2011 to 2014, but he now plays again as a Slovenian (and has received a lot of criticism for changing nationalities). He's good on grass (and Cam isn't yet) so I'd say this is not a good draw and Bedene will be favored heavily. Last year, in Cam's first Wimbledon, he lost to Jo-Wilfred Tsonga - hopefully, he'll do better this year. If, perchance, he advances, it'll probably be Pablo Carreno-Busta next and then Isner. Cam is now ranked #79 after making the quarters at Eastbourne. The match will be at 5:30 a.m. (CDT) on Monday morning.

    I don't think I can recall an athletic director saying it isn't fair to single out athletes for committing rape because lots of people at the school were raping people. That's pretty much what he said.

    I'm not sure when yesterday, but play was ultimately resumed and Rybo won his second straight title 6-1, 7-6 (8-6). The Buffalo and Rochester championships are now in TCU's hands and Rybo is off to Pittsburgh shooting for 3 in a row. Meanwhile, Reese Stalder is in Tulsa, where he has already won his first qualie 6-1, 6-1 over Piotr Lada and he'll face Isaiah Strode later today. Jerry Lopez will next play at Kelowna in Canada next week. Cam Norrie will be at Eastbourne this week and he's scheduled to play Daniel Brands, a 30-year old German vet (with 9 historic singles titles) with an ATP rank of #315. (Cam's up to #80 today).

    It was a tough night for the Horned Frogs and Sanford Mainers. Johnny Rizer's homer was the highlight. Rizer also made a nice running catch in center, but the Mainers fell to the defending champs and league-leading Blue Sox.

    I was, like, shocked when I first read the news that Alex was teaming with, of all things, an Aggie, in doubles! In Arconada's defense, though, he's now a former Aggie, having left the team after 4 years there last month and he's from Argentina, so he might not have known what an Aggie was when he first committed there. And, the Aggies did make the Final 4 this year, which is their best performance ever (although like horse racing, when you talk about "Lasix enhanced," this was "Kypson-enhanced") so Rybo does have the excuse that Jordi's a pretty good player. In any event, they lost in the first round, so it's not like we had to endure it for more than one round. And I checked the Aggie roster and there are no players from Portland although they may have a new recruit from there. Whatever. Alex walloped Souto 4 and 1 today in singles so he's now into the Round of 16 at Rochester. In Winston Salem, Reese Stalder lost 4 and 2 to Emil Reinberg, so no ATP points as yet for him. But Trevor Johnson "beat" Altamirano 4-2 (retired) and is also into the Round of 16 and TJ and Schneider advanced to the semis in doubles by beating Henry Craig and Miles Seeman 4 and 3. TJ will now face Craig again in singles tomorrow. I'm not sure about his doubles match-up. In Calgary, Gerardo Lopez Villasenor (aka Jerry Lopez) beat the Longhorn Harrison Scott 1-6, 6-3, 7-5 in a close 3-setter and has also advanced to the Round of 16, where he will now face Paul Oosterbaan. And, reversing his usual performance, Nick Chappell won his singles match and lost his doubles match - he beat Jack Davis 2 and 3 and will now face Steven Diez (a Canuck), but he and Shrop lost to Diez/Rodriguez 6-3, 3-6, 8-10 in doubles. So, Rybo, TJ, Jerry and Nick are all still alive in singles and TJ is still alive in doubles. Not a bad week so far.
