    Well, I'm not going to criticize Jamie unless and until something is announced. But if he does go, it's no holds barred and I'm gonna sic Boston Frog on him...

    It was my great-grand-dad that helped make that decision. Both Addison and Randolph Clark had died and the school was, in addition to the administrators, sort of being "run" by the "Brethren" (i.e., the group of DOC pastors that were (mostly) located in Texas and were interested in the school - Spindletop had happened in 1901 but as yet had not created a bunch of super-wealthy alumni). They (the Brethren) gathered in Waco and put out word to other Texas towns and cities that they would solicit bids from whomever wanted them and then they gathered again to discuss the options and eventually recommended the acceptance of the Ft. Worth offer. He wrote about it in his autobiography and I have no idea whether he exaggerated his role on the committee, but it's been family lore that he was part of the group that decided on the Ft. Worth move.

    And the Frogs beat #8 A&M 4-3 with the 7-6, 6-7, 6-3 clincher by senior Alex Rybakov on Court 1!!!! We won the doubles point with W's by Rybo/Gray and Stalder/Kruger and then we won 3 singles matches, with Fomba and Jong providing the first 2 W's and Rybo providing the deciding one. This is a HUGE W for us - A&M only has 1 loss in the SEC, they were ranked #8, which might help us move up and we've now won 4 straight 4-3 matches against them and 6 straight matches overall! A tremendous W!

    A few observations from this evening's open practice: -Delton was not suited up, so Rogers was running with the 1s and Duggan with the 2s. Matthew Downing also got some reps. A number of people in the stands remarked at how big Rogers looked - he's really filled out, and I think he might have even grown an inch. He threw some really pretty balls (including a really great back-shoulder throw to Barber that resulted in an equally impressive catch for a TD) and looked to be more mobile than what we'd seen in the bowl game. Duggan is really, really quick. -DeMauryon Holmes was running alongside Garrett Wallow with the 1s on defense while Ben & Montrel Wilson weren't suited out. He has gotten much bigger, and looked natural playing LB. -Sewo was the only scholarship RB suited up. He had a few good runs and a long gain on a swing pass. Most of the RB reps went to #34 - the roster tells me that's Deryl Reynolds, a walk-on listed at WR that played at Alamo Heights and then transferred here from Colorado School of Mines. -Catch of the day was probably Artayvious Lynn going up to high-point a 50/50 ball on a deep pass from Rogers, and he had several catches on a variety of routes. Al'Dontrae Davis also had some impressive snags, and Ni'Jeel Meeking had a great catch & run on a slant from Duggan. -Vernon Scott made an insanely athletic INT to spoil a potential TD pass that got the fans in attendance pretty excited. -Ochaun Mathis looked huge, and was running with the 1s opposite Parker Workman. Adam Plant is HUGE. -Starting OL appeared to be, left to right - McKinney, Iwagwu, McMillon, Quazzel White and David Bolisomi. Esteban Aliva stuck out to me as an OL that's gotten bigger since last year. -Song and Bunce both made FGs from 45+...but both missed from closer. -Overall, I'd say the defense looked further along - not that suprising. As discussed previously, TONS of guys were sitting out. Many appeared to be doing so as a precaution, but Izaih Filikitonga had a boot on one foot and was using one of those scooter things.

    Singles victories by Rybakov, Stalder and Gray give the Frogs a 4-1 win! That's 8 wins in a row to improve to 13-3 on the year.

    It is completely reasonable to expect occasional hitting funks and occasional bad outings from pitchers, even on "championship level" teams. We have evidence this team can hit. They've scored 6 or more runs in 21 of 35 games the season. They've gotten double-digit hits in 20 games. They are going though a funk. We have seen very little evidence that this team can pitch, outside of Lodolo (and maybe King and Perez). There is no funk ... this is what the team has to work with. And when a team can't pitch, it is going to lose games during hitting funks.

    Texas beat OU today to outright clinch the Big 12, but Tech upset Baylor 4-3 in Lubbock, so the final Big 12 standings are as follows: Texas - 5-0; 22-2 TCU - 3-2; 19-5 Baylor - 3-2; 20-4 Tech - 2-3; 15-10 Oklahoma - 1-4; 14-9 Oklahoma State - 1-4; 14-10 The Frogs therefore finished in a tie for 2nd - the usual tie-break is H2H, so I assume that we're still gonna be seeded 3rd. And OU beat OSU 2 weeks ago, so I assume that we'll play the Cowboys as the 6th seed in the first round of the Big 12 tourney, and if we win, would get a re-match against Baylor, who will have a 1st-round bye. Unless there's a different tie-break in tennis...

    I should've also mentioned Sean Wymer among the strong starts - while he's 0-0 through two starts for Class A Lansing (Blue Jays), he's gone at least 6 innings in both, carries a 3.65 ERA and has 9 K's against just 3 BB.

    A few guys off to good starts: -Kevin Cron is hitting 9-for-32 (.281) through 8 games for Triple-A Reno (D'Backs), with 3 doubles, 2 HR and 11 RBI -Brian Howard is 1-0 with a 0.90 ERA through 2 starts for Double-A Midland (A's) -Jerrick Suiter is hitting 9-for-27 (.333) through 7 games for Double-A Altoona (Pirates) -Taylor Featherston is hitting 15-for-35 (.429) with 3 doubles, 1 HR and 8 RBI through 9 games for Double-A Northwest Arkansas (Royals) -Luken Baker is hitting 9-for-29 (.310) with 3 doubles and 6 RBI through 9 games for Advanced-A Palm Beach (Cardinals) -Evan Skoug is hitting 6-for-18 (.333) with a double and triple - and, more importantly, more walks than strikeouts - through 6 games for Class A Kannapolis (White Sox)

    Cameron Norrie is now in Houston where he is the 3rd seed in the only ATP-sanctioned clay court event in the U.S. this year. He's scheduled to play #372 Janko Tipsarevic tomorrow at 12:00 noon (CDT). This will be an early chance for Cam to play on clay in advance of the clay season this Spring leading up to the French Open at Roland Garros next month. He's slipped a bit since his good performance at Acapulco and is now ranked #55. The Frogs will next play Oklahoma on Friday in Norman at 6:00 p.m. (CDT). We really need to get W's over the Oklahoma schools to finish out the regular season in order to earn the #3 seed in the Big12 tourney and to enhance our chances to climb into the Top 8 for potential super-regional hosting purposes (if we advance that far in the NCAA's) CTR currently projects TCU to move up to #8 after beating A&M 4-3, but if we sweep the Okies, that means we'll be projected to move up to #7. The reason for this is that the ITA will expand to include a team's top 10 W's and further W's over Top 26 teams will help that. OU stands at 14-7 on the season, which is a good but not outstanding record. Losing Coach Roddick to UCF 2 years ago and losing Andrew Harris and Alex Ghilea to graduation last year has caused the Sooners to slip a little since their peak about 5 years ago when they made the Finals at the NCAA's and later won the individual doubles championship. But they are still a very good team - they have W's over ACU, Wichita State, Creighton, Omaha, Drake, Cornell, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tulsa, Florida State, Memphis, Charlotte, USF and Oklahoma State and their L's are to Notre Dame, Michigan, Mississippi State, A&M, North Carolina, Baylor and Tech. Basically, they've followed form - beating who they were supposed to and losing to higher ranked teams. They are, however, coming off an upset loss to Tech (4-3) and are 1-2 in Big12 play (like us). They are led by #33 Spencer Papa (Edmond) and #57 Jake Van Emburgh (Florida) and Ferran Calvo (Spain), Mason Beiler (Florida), Jochen Bertsch (Germany) and Max Stewart (England) usually play singles as well. They also have Alex Bakshi (Tbilisi, Georgia; former Aggie)(who teams with Papa) and Stefano Tsorotiotis (Illinois)(who teams with Bertsch) in doubles. Nick Crowell is their coach - he's a Longhorn from Amarillo who spent 13 years at Florida State as an assistant. We should be favored, but it's not a gimme.

    I think this team is one 2017 Janczak away from being a contender. A pitching rotation of Lodolo, old Janczak, and Williamson; with King, Mihlbauer and Eissler in relief; with Perez to close is pretty stout. You can string together a Tuesday staff from Green, Notary, Brown, Caughlin and Righetti, whoever is throwing well at the moment. This is the best offensive team Schloss has had and should provide support. But old Janczak is the key.

    Before we get away from this season, I just want to document my thanks to Alex Robinson and JD Miller for their years of service to our men's basketball program and wish them all the good luck in their future careers, whatever they may pursue. I came to my basketball fandom late, but I'm hooked and these guys were a large part of capturing my attention. For the ladies, Jordan Moore, Jaycee Bradley, Amy Okonkwo, Dakota Vann, y'all made it fun to follow your team! You #PlayedLikeGirls and kept fighting. Good luck to you as you follow your dreams!

    He's in 2nd place for most MLB hits for a Frog and is 110 hits behind Jim Busby for most. Carpenter is also 2nd behind Busby for games played (1026 vs. 1352) and is first in 2B (266), HR (134), R (656), RBI (487), BB (581), and Ks (827). He also tops all former Frogs with over 200 plate appearances in BA (.274), OBP (.376), and SLG (.469) Which will tie him for 2nd most MLB wins all-time for a Frog with Tex Carleton. He needs 35 more wins to pass Pete Donohue for 1st. Nine more passes Carleton for 2nd all-time for a Frog. Arrieta's got a lock on 1st place with 1214. https://www.baseball-reference.com/schools/index.cgi?key_school=9bdcf2c4 From a statistical viewpoint, there is no question that Carpenter is the best MLB hitter TCU has ever produced. Probably a tossup between Arrieta and Carleton for the best pitcher TCU's ever produced ...

Action commences on Friday this week with Tech at Oklahoma State and OU at Baylor. On Saturday, TCU hosts Texas and on Sunday, it'll be OU at Tech and OSU at Baylor. Federer beat Isner in the Miami final - Houston will be next and Cam Norrie is already entered there.

    Remember though that throughout our wander through the wilderness, those 3rd and 4th tier bowls were largely the only bowls available to us. I think the minor bowls serve as a little reminder of the path we've taken and we should embrace them. Hell, the Frogs (and Boise) made the Poinsettia Bowl a Tier 1 bowl in 2008 ...

    Really happy for these guys. They’ve had a rough season with injuries, transfers, and being very short handed as a result of that. I’m glad they’re at least getting a trip to NY out of it. They deserve it.

    Took my ut friend Friday night. Orange tears flowed. Last night I took my grandson that I thought was a Frog fan, but found out today he wore a Whoren shirt under his regular shirt. Got to meet the dapper Turk and lovely Mrs. Turk. Not a pretty game. Today I took my ut friend again. About drowned in the car on the way home from crocodile orange tears. It was a good weekend.

    Headlines from tonight's win over Sam Houston: -Alex Robinson broke the TCU single-season record for assists. He now holds the school single-game, single-season and career records in that department. With 659 for his career, he's now 10 away from passing Kirk Hinrich of Kansas for #4 in Big 12 history. -JD Miller played in his 137th career game, breaking the school record previously held by Brandon Parrish. -Kevin Samuel passed Kurt Thomas' 1993-94 season with with 70th block, which now puts him at #4 on the TCU single-season list. He needs 5 to pass Derrick Davenport's 2000-01 season for #3, and 9 to pass Damion Walker and crack the career top 10 list...as a freshman! -Desmond Bane passed the 1,200-point mark for his career. At 1,206, he needs 221 to pass Gary Turner and crack the career top 10 list. He also hit his 150th career three-pointer, so he needs 11 to pass Junior Blount to crack the top 10 on that career list.

    Yeah no kidding. In the end, I really hope there is no bad blood. I think it’s clear he wanted the job and the opportunity to move back home. I get TCU not wanting to negotiate on the buyout, but if UCLA really wanted him, then $8 million should have been no issue.

    -Cashner has had mixed results in his first two starts for the Orioles. He was shelled by the Yankees on Opening Day in The Bronx, then scattered 4 hits across 6 scorless innings against the Blue Jays in his second. He's 1-1 with a 5.40 ERA, with his next scheduled start slated for next Monday against Oakland. -Arrieta picked up a W in his first start of the year, giving up 1 run in 6 IP against the Braves. He's 1-0 with a 1.50 ERA, with his next start scheduled to come Saturday afternoon against Minnesota. -Carpenter was 1-for-5 tonight with a double in the Cardinals' extra-inning win over Pittsburgh. Through five games, he's hitting 4-for-21 (.192) with 1 HR and 2 RBI. -Riley Ferrell remains on the 10-day DL for the Marlins.

    Opening Day start for a Frog! Cashner takes the bump for the Orioles tomorrow, at Yankee Stadium, at noon CT on ESPN. Arrieta's first scheduled start of the year for the Phillies is on Sunday against the Braves. It'll be on ESPN at 6:00pm CT.
