    The TCU Variety Thread

    Babysis DTF is moving into the dorms tomorrow! Apparently it is their largest Freshman class ever... She is living in a "triple" which is a converted lounge in Shirley.

    A few memorable Frog 26s: Mike Renfro Derrick Kindred Marvin White Keaton Jones Sean Wymer November 15, 2003 - #10 TCU beats up on Cincinnati, 43-10, to improve to 10-0. Anyone there that day remembers this game for one thing - the bags of Tostito's chips the Fiesta Bowl committee had placed in every seat of the stadium, being tossed around after every big play for the Frogs. It was Gary Patterson's 26th career win.

    The TCU Variety Thread

    I wasn't sure where to put this, but I was digging around a little on Linzy Cole (spurred on by his appearances in the Countdown thread) and found this old 2012 piece written for the mtn which features Cole, Bubba Thornton, and Jerry LeVias. A little bit about TCU history for those interested ... Forget Me Not: Linzy Cole Quietly Revolutionized TCU Football

    The legendary Linzy Cole wore #26 in 1972 for both the Oilers and the Bills. This card shows him clearly still in his Chicago Bears #25 (hint: you might see Linzy again tomorrow), but this is the only thing I can find of him referencing the Bills. Derrick Kindred Marvin White, 2007-08 Bengals According to baseball-reference, Chris Eddy wore #26 for the 1995 A's. This is obviously not him in an A's uniform, but YOU try to find one ... Yes, I've posted this pic of Lambert "L.D." "Little Dutch" Meyer before, but 26 is one of three numbers he apparently wore for the Tigers

    Sorry, I fell behind again ... 29 -- Friday Lyle Blackwood 28 -- Saturday Sun Bowl hero Basil Mitchell Wore #28 for the inaugural 1976 Seahawks No picture of Tony Jeffery wearing #28 for the 1988 Phoenix Cardinals ... Tex Carleton wore #28 for the 1940 Dodgers Gary Turner, drafted in 1966 by the Celtics, played a few games for the ABA Houston Mavericks ... 27 -- Sunday David Roach, 2009 Rams The photo caption says this is a 1998 photo of someone named Marcus Stanton but pro-football-reference.com says that there has been no Marcus Stanton to play professional football and that TCU's own Greg Evans wore #27 for the Native Americans that year. So I'm going to say this is him ... Brandon Finnegan Wore #27 for the 1962 Cardinals Scott Atchison's 5th and final appearance on the countdown ...

    Going back to the 1988 friendly USMNT played against Ecuador and the discrepency on wikipedia as to what stadium hosted it - I emailed the communications dept at US Soccer. They confirmed that the match was played at Herman Clark Stadium.
