    Couldn't find a pro baseball thread, so here's this. Bryan Holiday to the Orioles' organization. https://www.fishstripes.com/2020/1/13/21063664/mlb-free-agency-bryan-holaday-orioles-signing-marlins-career

    After a couple of "maybe we aren't very good after all" games, nice to get a big win. Diante Smith the biggest positive, IMO after Bane of course. Played tough and game seemed to slow down a bit for him yesterday. Good defensive game and the run in the second half was nice to see because it didn't rely on the 3 pointer. Samuel played better after a couple of tough games. Might as well talk tourney. Think we are a long shot at this point, but still a shot. Nonconference schedule not doing us any favors- we didn't excel and many of the teams we played are at the bottom of their conference standings. USC, Winthrop and UC Irvine at or near the top of their respective conferences, but the rest are bottom feeders. Even Xavier is 1-4 in the Big East, although they have had a tough conference schedule so far. Nonconference schedule wise, a win at Arky would be huge. Will be tough, but right now any committee comparing nonconference schedules isn't going to find a lot they like about ours. A road P5 conference win would give us something for a committee to hang their hat on. But even if we lose Arky, still a shot if we get to 9 conference wins. 8-10 in Big 12 has been enough recently, but really worry that our nonconference schedule would be too big a negative. Maybe if a couple of those 8 included wins over KU, Baylor or WVU I guess. Hard to know because how others do obviously influences the bubble. But really don't think "8 is enough".

    This thread will really get going toward the end of spring training when team assignments start rolling in, but I saw something on the other board that caught my eye. According to the twitter feed of Bryan Smith, who covers the Cubs' minor league system, the Northsiders acquired Jerrick Suiter this offseason with the intention of converting him to a pitcher. This comes after he made two relief appearances late in the season last year for Double-A Altoona (Pirates), posting a 0.00 ERA in 1.2 total innings, tallying 1 strike out, giving up 1 hit and walking none. You may also remember that Jerrick was a two-way player his freshman season at TCU, making six appearances (and two starts) on the mound for the Frogs, going 0-1 with a 3.60 ERA.

    Mon Jan 13, 2020 7:40 am Monday’s 6-pack — Browns are going to hire Vikings OC Kevin Stefanski as their head coach. — Minnesota 75, Michigan 67— Wolverines are 0-4 in true road games. — Wichita St 89, UConn 86 2OT— Huskies were only 29-42 on foul line. — Purdue 71, Michigan State 42— Dismal performance by the Spartans. — Manhattan 81, Siena 69— Saints are 7-0 in Albany, 0-7 on the road. — Chiefs opened -9.5 over Tennessee; within an hour, it was bet down to 7.5 Quote of the Day: “I think you have to look at yourself in the mirror, and I think this team’s identity right now is to get in the playoffs and choke. It is what it is. This is just the hard truth.” Ravens’ CB Marlon Humphrey, talking about his own team. Monday’s quiz Who did the Steelers beat the one time Bill Cowher won a Super Bowl as a coach? Sunday’s quiz Last time a #6 conference seed won the Super Bowl was nine years ago, when the Packers won the Lombardi Trophy. Saturday’s quiz NCIS star Mark Harmon played QB for UCLA. Posted onJanuary 13, 2020 Leave a commenton Monday’s 6-pack, Quote, Quiz of the Day Monday’s List of 13: Looking at Hall of Fame NFL coaches…… 13) Pro Football Hall of Fame and CBS made a big production Saturday night out of surprising Bill Cowher on air, announcing that he’s been elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. It was emotional and it made for good TV. Then the same thing happened on FOX Sunday with Jimmy Johnson getting the good news. Cowher coached the Steelers for 15 years, going 149-90-1 in regular season, 12-9 in playoffs, winning two AFC titles, and also Super Bowl 40 (I’m not great with Roman numerals). Johnson went 80-64 in only nine years in the NFL, winning Super Bowl in consecutive years (1992-93). His win %age in Miami (.563) was actually better than it was in Dallas (.550), but he won his titles and made his name with the Cowboys. Johnson was 81-34-3 as a college coach at Oklahoma State, Miami, which is irrelevant to what we’re talking about today. 12) But the underlying question is this; are Cowher/Johnson deserving of this honor? I’m not saying they are or they aren’t, but we’re going to look into it a little right now. Here are four other NFL coaches, none of whom are in the Hall of Fame, who all won two Super Bowls (Johnson won two, Cowher won one): 11) Tom Coughlin: 170-150 in 20 years, won two Super Bowls with the Giants, but his best coaching was done in Jacksonville, where he led the expansion Jaguars to a 45-19 record in a stretch from 1996-99, Jacksonville’s 2nd thru 5th years in the NFL. Coughlin was 12-7 in playoff games. 10) Tom Flores: 97-87 in 12 years, nine years with the Raiders; 8-3 in playoff games. Flores won Super Bowls 15 and 18. He was in Seattle for three years after the Raiders- that didn’t go well (14-34). 9) George Seifert: Took over the powerhouse 49ers after Bill Walsh left, went 98-30 in eight years there, winning Super Bowls 24, 29. He was 10-5 in playoff games. Seifert coached Carolina for three years after that, going 16-32; no bueno. He also coached Cornell in the Ivy League for a couple years in the 70’s. Mike Shanahan: 170-138 in 20 years, 8-6 in playoff games, winning Super Bowls 32-33 in John Elway’s last two years as a player. Also worked as a head coach for Al Davis, Daniel Snyder; neither of those tenures went well, but he was 138-86 in his 14 years in Denver. I’m thinking that Coughlin and Shanahan will both eventually get in the Hall of Fame. 7) Chiefs 51, Texans 31— Houston led this game 24-0 with 10:58 left in 2nd quarter, then KC scored three TD’s in a span of 3:18; by halftime, the Chiefs led, 28-24. Chiefs went on to score TD’s on seven consecutive drives- they scored so much, the team ran out of fireworks that they shoot off after touchdowns. First six playoff games this year went under the total; this one didn’t. 6) Packers 28, Seahawks 23— Green Bay led 21-3 at half; Adams caught eight passes for 140 yards and two TD’s. Packers visit the 49ers in Santa Clara next Sunday. 5) Thursday night, Nashville Predators’ goalie Pekka Rinne scored a goal, the 15th time that has happened in he NHL, by 12 different goalies. It was the first time in six years an NHL goalie scored. Retired goalies Martin Brodeur scored three goals, Ron Hextall twice. 4) A guy in Hillsboro, OR bought a Boeing 727 passenger jetliner for $100,000, propped it up on two massive concrete pillars in the woods, and made it his home. Hillsboro is a suburb of Portland, and apparently, this guy is pretty rich. The pictures I saw online looked pretty nice. 3) According to one tax professional, a New York couple filing their tax return jointly with $5M in taxable income would save $394,931 in taxes by moving to Florida. 2) New Orleans coach Alvin Gentry says he wants his team to take 40 3’s a game; Pelicans’ last eight games went over the total- they’re lot of fun to watch. 1) Since 2010, nine NFL teams started a season 8-0; none of them won the Super Bowl that year; last 8-0 team to go on to win a Super Bowl? The ’09 Saints. This year’s 49ers are the ninth of those teams.

    I was just reading that the smoke is causing real problems for the players at the Australian tournament. One of the women's players said she couldn't believe the officials weren't making concessions for the smoke and breathing issues. In another article about the huge fires, it said the smoke is so pervasive that it's reached the stratosphere and gone all the way to South America and will soon go so far to make its way back to where it started, Australia. It's making for pretty sunsets, but that's the only positive thing about it.

    Bane passed the 1,500-point plateau on Saturday against the Pokes - and in the process also passed Lee Nailon and Ryan Carroll to land, temporarily, at #8 on the career scoring list. He needs 3 points tomorrow night in Morgantown to pass Kurt Thomas for #7.

    The Brits clinched a berth in the Final 8, along with Australia (who is undefeated), Serbia and Russia. So Cam will get at least one more match at the ATP Cup, but the opponent has yet to be determined as the last four spots are still being contested today. Alex Rybakov returns to action this week in Los Angeles at the first ITF tourney of the year in the U.S. Now ranked ATP#528, Rybo is scheduled to play Govind Nanda (ATP#531) tomorrow in the first round of the main draw (Round of 16). It should be an even match - we'll see if Alex has gotten better after his long layoff. (Alex just tweeted about the Nick Kyrgios match last night that had multiple drop shots, failed tweeners, underhand serves and monster forehands). I checked our team roster today and Tomas Jirousek is now officially listed as on the team, so it looks like he'll be added this month as anticipated (and may already be in Ft. Worth as Roditi tweeted that they're all back on the purple courts).

    Pretty proud of RJ for stepping up when Bane got in foul trouble, and for the team as a whole for overcoming an an attempt by the refs to gift the game to the Cyclones.

    About three weeks from pitchers & catchers reporting, Andrew Cashner remains a free agent. There's speculation out there mentioning him as an option with several teams, though, including the: Orioles and Marlins (both of which he's pitched for previously) as well as the Indians.

    Incoming transer: shooting guard Charles O'Bannon Jr, whose Dad & Uncle Ed anchored the UCLA resurgence in the mid-90s, is transferring from USC to TCU. As I understand it, he was a 5-star recruit coming out of high school (in Las Vegas), and will be immediately eligible for the Frogs next season.

    The #8 TCU Frogs moved to 2-0 today with an easy 4-0 sweep of the FAU Owls in the opening round of the Ft. Worth Regional of the ITA Kickoff. Tomorrow, at 2:00 p.m. (CST), we'll play the 5-0 Arizona Wildcats, who earlier prevailed over the Notre Dame Irish 4-2. The Frogs won the doubles point soundly, with a 6-2 W by our Brits (Gray/Fearnley) and a 6-2 win from Sander Jong and Tadeas Paroulek. And in singles, Jacob Fearnley started things out with a 6-3, 6-2 W; Luc Fomba won 6-3, 6-3, and Tomas Jirousek provided the clincher 6-2, 6-2 in his TCU debut. So it was freshmen and sophomores that carried the day, which is a good sign for the future and for our depth. Roditi was pleased with the depth but described Zona as a "fiery" team and they'll certainly be a tougher opponent. We should be favored, but nothing is a given. Across the country, Illinois was the only host that I saw that lost their opening rounder.
