    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.

    Ok, so this is a bit of a vanity thread I guess, but it seems like it might be fun to share images of the trading cards I've collected over the past 9 years or so. There will be some names that will be obvious (for instance, LaDainian Tomlinson has nearly 7000 cards of his own) and there will be some that you may have to dig into the dusty files of your brain to remember. I'm going to try and post daily, but I can almost guarantee that won't be the norm. Additionally, I'll try and provide little tidbits of trivia about whatever card gets posted. My plan is to largely stick to cards featuring whatever sport is currently going, but with overlap and such, that might not be a definite thing. If you have a request, throw it out there. The only real rule about that is that it needs to be of someone that made it to the professional level in some capacity (minor league ball counts, AAF, independent leagues, foreign leagues, whatever). Hopefully this will be entertaining in some way for most of you. At any rate, it's my silly hobby and I'd just like to share it with somebody.

    Our current 79: Esteban Avila A few memorable 79s: Nic Richmond Weldon "Scratch" Edwards Jaden Oberkrom kicked a school-record 79 field goals in his time at TCU, none bigger than the game-winner in Morgantown in 2014 Josh Doctson hauled in a school-record 79 receptions in 2015, including this rather momentous TD in the comeback against K-State LaDainian Tramayne Tomlinson was born June 23, 1979 ...and a few bonus 79s: Harvey Martin Erik Williams Alien hit theaters May 25, 1979 The video for "1979" Jason Isbell was born February 1, 1979

    Seeing as he is about the only person who referred to TCU-Baylor as the Revivalry, I support his move away from covering the Frogs.

    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 85: Christian Williams - I thought he was a senior last year, but I guess he got a redshirt? A few memorable 85s: Jeremy Kerley Sonny Campbell Ladarius Brown Not the most fondly remembered season in TCU history, but the 1985 cover of Dave Campbell's Texas Football was pretty great ...and a few bonus 85s: Kevin Williams in a fantastic photo of a great moment from a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. New Coke was put on the market in April of 1985 Back to the Future hit theaters July 3, 1985 NES was released in the US in October of 1985

    Gerardo Lopez Villasenor won his first-round match in Cancun. Eduardo Roldan played the top seed in Cancun and did not win. Ali Gray made the main draw at the Surbiton Challenger as a lucky loser, but lost his first-round match. No sign of Cam Norrie there.

    Marshall Newhouse signed with New Orleans. The guy has had a very under the radar lengthy NFL career. 72 starts over 8 full seasons in the league. https://whodatdish.com/2019/05/23/saints-add-three-including-t-marshall-newhouse-cut-three/

    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.

    Our current 92: Benedict Brafi A few memorable 92s: Chad McCarty Ray Burns November 7, 1992: Back when beating UT was still a big deal Deante Gray's 92-yard TD reception from Boykin against Tech in 2014 Michael Reeder hit 92% of his FG attempts in 1995 ...and a few bonus 92s: My man, DeShawn Stevenson

    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.

    Our current 94: Corey Bethley A few memorable 94s: Josh Carraway, on my second-favorite touchdown of his Robert Pollard Henry Niutei 1994 SWC Co-Champs! Jeff Gladney's 94-yard pick six in Baghdad in 2017 Josh Boyce's miracle 94-yard TD reception from Boykin to force OT against Hill Tech in 2012 ...and a few bonus 94s Kenny Rogers' perfect game at The Temple: July 29, 1994 January 2, 1994: The Cowboys grab a crucial Week 17 win in the Meadowlands to clinch home field advantage in the subsequent playoffs that will end with them winning their second consecutive Super Bowl. Emmitt Smith leads the way with 168 yards rushing and another 61 receiving...playing with a separated shoulder. Yeah

    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!

    Our current 99: Soni Misi A few memorable Frog 99s: Jeremy Breedlove Chance McCarty Braylon "It's already been" Broughton Tevin Lawson KaVontae Turpin's 99-yard kickoff return for a TD against OU last year - I searched and searched and searched for a photo or video, but Quincy Butler had a 99-yard pick six against Southern Miss in 2004. If memory serves me correct, he didn't have a clear path to the endzone - he had to cut back several times and broke multiple tackles before finally finding paydirt. Play seemed like it took minutes. ...and a bonus 99: Tony Dorsett's NFL record 99-yard TD run on Monday Night Football in 1983

    This one will decide it for the right to face Nuno Borges in the semis. C'mon Alex! 1-all. Blumberg serving first this time. Rybo desperately needs a break. And he gets it!! At no-ad after being down 15-40! 2-1!! 3-1! Katrina Adams just called us the Horn Dogs. 3-2. Sam Gore, a former Tarheel, is openly rooting for Blumberg as he calls the match. 4-2. Still up that key break. Nice lefty serving by Rybo. 5-2!! Alex grabs control of the match with yet another key break on a big-time forehand shot! Up 2 breaks, he'll serve for the semis! Rybo is on a roll! Great shots make it 30-love! 40-love! Quadruple match point! 40-15. Blumberg saves one. Alex Rybakov takes the match 6-4, 3-6, 6-2!! On to the semis! He earns a berth in an ATP event for doing it. And yes, he's an All-American. And the Big 12 Player of the Year. And the TCU Male Athlete of the Year. And the TCU Scholar-Athlete of the Year. But, uh, he has to play Nuno next.
