    Perspective that probably only those in the over 40 set will appreciate .... all three of the major men's sports went to the post-season and yet all three fell well short of expectations. There was a long period in TCUs history when ANY post season in ANY sport was a rare occasion to be celebrated. While we've fallen a bit from peak Frogs a few years ago, things are still pretty good.

    Jerry Lopez (o Gerardo Lopez Villasenor si prefiere espanol) won the first set in the finals in Cancun 6-1 over the Trojan and is looking good for his 2nd ever pro singles title. This tourney is a $15,000 ITF Futures tourney, so he wouldn't earn that much money, but at least it's not just a transition tourney. 2-1 in the 2nd set. 3-1. Up a break. 4-1! Jerry gets another break! (As Rafa beats Thiem at Roland Garros - Rafa's 12th French title). 5-1! After multiple deuces. 6-1! Jerry takes the title with a dominant 6-1, 6-1 W! He's worked his way up to an ATP #548 ranking and this should really help move him up further.

    Two Frogs are currently in action this morning. Eduardo Roldan is playing in the qualies at yet another tourney in Cancun - he's into the 3rd set against Luis Patino after winning the first set 6-4 and losing the 2nd set 3-6 and is currently leading 2-0 over Patino. Reese Stalder is playing Ponwith in Wichita and just lost the 1st set 4-6. Eduardo now up 4-3 (up a break) in his 3rd set; Reese is at 3-all in his 2nd. Eduardito 5-3; Widow 4-3 (barely). Roldan advances 6-4, 3-6, 6-3! Patino is ranked at ATP#574, so this is a very good W for Eduardo. Widow still at 4-3 on serve in his 2nd. Stalder 5-3! He gets a key break! Widow takes the 2nd set 6-3!! On to the 3rd and deciding set. 0-1. Ponwith serving first this set. I'm trying to get used to regular scoring with deuces and ads. (I suspect Widow is too). Strike that! It's not regular scoring - they're playing a pro-set tie-breaker. (First to 10 points wins - I think). Reese trailing 1-3. 2-3. 3-all. 4-all. 5-4! Reese takes his first lead in the breaker. 5-all. This is moving quickly. 5-7. (sigh). 5-8. Not looking good. 5-9. Quadruple match point. 6-9. Triple match point. Stalder falls 4-6, 6-3, 6-10. His doubles match will be later this afternoon.

    Our current 89 is a walk-on from Dallas named Hayden Fox. GoFrogs.com doesn't have a photo of him with the official roster, so I did a quick Google Images search: A few memorable 89s: Kyle Clifton Vincent Pryor O'Day Williams LT had an 89-yard TD run against UTEP in 2000, as part of a "disappointing" 305 yard day after having set the NCAA single-game record with 406 against the Miners in '99 -No photo that I could find, but Jimmy Oliver had an 89-yard TD reception from Max Knake in the win over Tech in 1994. ...and a few bonus 89s: August 23, 1989: Nolan Ryan's 5,000th strikeout November 9, 1989: The Berlin Wall starts to come down

    -Arrieta gave up 5 runs and 10 hits in 5 IP last time out, against the Dodgers in LA, to drop to 5-5 on the year. His ERA ticked up to 3.96. Next scheduled start is Wednesday afternoon against the Padres in San Diego. -Cashner gave up 6 runs in 5 IP last time out...but got the W against the Giants. He's now 6-2 on the year with a 5.04 ERA. Next scheduled start is Thursday evening against the Rangers out at The Temple. -Carpenter has a three-game hit streak going for the Cardinals, including a walk-off home run over the weekend against the Cubs. He's hitting .220 for the year with 8 HR and 20 RBI. -Holaday hit his first home run of the season over the weekend out in San Diego. In 4 games since the Marlins called him up, he's 1-for-9 with that 2-run HR. -Cron, who must be dizzy from the Diamondbacks' inability to make up their minds on him, is 4-for-14 (.286) in 9 big league games. All four of those hits are doubles. -Crichton is scoreless through his first 4 relief appearances for the D'Backs, with 3 K's, 1 hit and 0 BB across 2.2 total IP.

    Tadeas and Ondrej Styler won the doubles championship at Most this morning with a solid 7-5, 6-1 victory over Safranek/Satral! This is his 3rd ever ITF doubles championship - he won one last year in Turkey and one in Slovakia. He doesn't currently have an ATP doubles ranking (his career high is #766) but his ITF doubles ranking is #281 and because the ITF and the ATP last week agreed on a new system to award ATP points to ITF champs, this title should move him back into the ATP rankings. This is huge - to have a doubles specialist as a recruit scheduled to arrive in September is a very good sign for next year's Frog team.

    The final ITA singles and doubles rankings were released yesterday. The Top 10 singles players for 2018-2019 were: 1. Nuno Borges (Mississippi State - NCAA runner-up) 2. J.J. Wolf (Ohio State) 3. Paul Jubb (South Carolina - NCAA champ) 4. Alex Rybakov (TCU - semi-finalist) 5. Carl Soderlund (Virginia) 6. Christian Sigsgaard (Texas) 7. Oliver Crawford (Florida) 8. Yuya Ito (Texas) 9. Brandon Holt (USC) 10. Petros Chrysochos (Wake Forest) 33. Alastair Gray (TCU). Looking ahead to next year, Borges, Wolf, Rybo, Soderlund, Sigsgaard and Chrysochos were seniors and will be departing; Gray will need to move up in the rankings for TCU to be competitive amongst the elite players, but he'll probably be moving up to the #1 slot which will help facilitate that. In doubles, Gray and Rybo were 15th; Kruger and Stalder 31st.

    Norrie and Evans won their Round of 32 match this morning over Johnson/Kudla 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 (at Slams, they play best 3 of 5 even in doubles) and are now scheduled to play veterans Robin Haase (Netherlands) and Frederik Nielsen (Denmark) tomorrow in the Round of 16. It'd be better if he were still alive in singles, but this is better than nothing. Tadeas Paroulek is playing in an ITF tourney in Most (Czech Republic) and he won his first round over Zdenek Derkas (6-1, 6-2) today and will face Jan Satral in the Round of 16 tomorrow. He's also in the doubles; teaming with Ondrej Styler - all players mentioned are Czechs. "Most" means "bridge" in Czech and the town was named for having, well, the most bridges... They all act very bohemian there because it's in Bohemia. Tadeas' current ATP ranking is #643.

    Not trying to start any official prediction here as its still way early- but I'm procrastinating at work and was getting excited for football. Depending on QB play (which when is it never depending on it?) There is a VERY real chance we could be heading into the UT weekend sitting at 6-0. Ark. PB- Come on @ Purdue- could be tough, but weather shouldn't be an issue and we have an extra week to prep. I like our odds. SMU- We always play down. But this aint the year. KU- They don't beat us twice in a row, and its at home. @ ISU- First test of the year. They lost a few guys. I like us. @KSU- Always tough, but again. They aren't beating us. Also, the bye before this one helps too. Past that, our schedule gets dicey. But we could be in for a fun season. Again, assuming we get some decent QB play (my guess is Rogers). UT has a much tougher first 8 weeks, but they will likely be ranked. Especially if they can beat 1 of LSU or OU and win the rest. Anyway, I CAN'T wait!

    I was a pretty big card collector as a kid, starting in the late-80s and into the mid-90s. Almost entirely baseball, but several complete sets ... a Carlton Fisk rookie probably the crown jewel. I was a huge baseball nerd, reading every baseball book I could get my hands on. I destroyed countless trees playing simulated seasons on the generically named Computer Baseball game on my Commodore 64 and printing out the statistics onto my parents' dot matrix printer. When I was collecting, my mother revealed to me that she was a collector at a similar age, back in the mid-to-late 50's. Then she told me a tale that traumatized me to my soul. As a girl in Fort Worth in the 1950's, the Texas Rangers did not exist and so as kids west of the Mississippi did, she adopted a team. From what I understand, a lot of westerners adopted the Cardinals as the closest team, but my mom, a front-runner, adopted the Yankees. So she told me she would buy a pack of cards, open it, keep all the Yankees, and throw the rest in the trash. So I'm envisioning my yet-to-be mother, opening a pack of cards ... Bob Cerv, keep ... Stan Musial, trash ... Tom Sturdivant, keep ... Jackie Robinson, trash ... Bobby Shantz, keep ... Willie Mays, trash ... hundreds of 1987 dollars unwittingly sent to the landfill back in 1958. But despite this atrocity, at least my dear mother must have saved for me a treasure trove of Mantles, Berras, and Fords, right? Alas, no ... they were ultimately thrown into the same landfill, once puberty and boys came into the picture and she cast aside her childish things in pursuit of adulthood. So I swore to myself then that I would not do to my children what my mother did to me. And in my attic right this very minute sits thousands of baseball cards that I saved for my children ... who could not give two shits about professional baseball or the cards that I lovingly saved for them, not even knowing who they would be. Maybe, one day, my grandchildren will want them ...

    If (BIG if) Janczak's tournament performance is sustainable, that gives us a 3-man starting rotation (Lodolo, King, Janczak) you can kinda, sorta hang your hat on. Then we just have to hope they can go deep enough and get enough run support to hold on when the bullpen comes in ...
