    Oops, let me try that again: I don't know where Dixon learned to coach but we need get him an couple highly regarded, defensive experts as assistants and it needs to happen now. This team dares to go out on the floor every game and play defense like that? Or should I say "not play defense like that?" Look, I'm sure they are trying really, really hard but maybe TJ's guys just don't have the drive to win for JD and it's time to move on. I mean, this team can't defend, can't shoot, misses too many free throws, haircuts are terrible, some of their names are hard to pronounce, they appear to be good kids that go to class - Seriously, that's not what this program needs to win. The worst part? I took time out of my day yesterday to occasionally check the score of the game while walking around the FWSSR. If I'm going to make that kind of effort to be a fan, this team needs to go out and win for me. EVERY. DAMN. TIME. It is time to call the Dixon Experiment the failure that it is. As a frog fan I expect, no, I demand, that we would have won a national championship by now. What are we paying for? Also, so the whole football +4 thing is ridiculous. I deserve the best seats in the stadium because I cheer harder than some donor that all he did was pay for the stadium. He probably doesn't even try to enter the Boot Scooting Boogie contest every week and I damn sure know he doesn't chase down the T shirt pickle shooter dude. I have an entire wardrobe of ill fitting pickle shirts. Give me my seats. And no more day games when it is hot. Patterson should know better than to schedule 2pm games when it's hot. What's wrong with that guy? Truly, what has he ever done for me? I ain't got no rings on my fingers. And dont get get me started on Schloss. Pathetic that we haven't even come close to winning a championship yet. That's all I'm going to say about that. Otherwise I might burn my season ticket. This may may seem overly critical but this is what TCU needs to start thinking about. We have done nothing as a program since CDC left. Nothing. No conference championships. No tourney championships. We haven't even gotten into the NCAA tourney in any sport since Jeremy Donuthole, or whatever his name is, took over. Im seriously reconsidering renewing my season ticket. I'm just not being personally rewarded enough for all the effort I put into this. These coaches, and definitely these players, are personally letting me down.

    My step son (SS) picked up an $8,500 engagement ring on Monday and is going to pop the question this weekend. Big party on Saturday. On to the good stuff..... IMO, I don't think Bimbo plans (planned) on visiting H&R Block at all (yes, she's that dumb) but that idea may have changed on Tuesday. SS works for his father (Mr. X) and Mr X pays all his employees in cash. Only one of Mr.X's 11-12 emplyoyees gets a 1099 and it's not SS. Mr. X makes a hefty 6 digits a year with his plumbing business. He does plumbing for new hotels and new fast food restaurants all over Texas. The last 8-10 years Mr.X has become quite fond the devils candy and partying at titty bars. Mr.X drops large sums of cash in G-strings and even more cash goes up his nose. As this new lifstyle took off Mr.X forgot to file taxes the last few years (I'd guess 3-4). It seems that the IRS audited one of the contractors that Mr.X does plumbing for and then the IRS looked into Mr.X. Last Tuesday, the IRS froze Mr'X's bank acct, the "new" Mrs.X was also on the acct too so the IRS froze the bank acct that Mrs.X shares with her 86 year old father. I don't know if the IRS will be looking into Mr.X's employees or not but SS is shaking in his boots. Stay tuned Below is a picture from inside the shop living quarters. It's 3 rooms and the shop has 3 bays plus a porte cochere. I'll give SS credit, he is doing the plumbing on the shop and he ran all the vents out of the groung or they're hidden around the structure. The A/C unit is up under the porte cochere so it can't be seen from satellite. By doing this he hopes he will only be taxed on a shop and not living quarters. We'll see how that works out

    It's hard to remember because we have come so far so fast but we are very few years removed from 1 win conference records. Let's give it a little time. I think it's safer to say we are over achieving this quickly into the Dixon Show rather than under achieving. Just think what it's going to be like when he has 4-5 of his own recruiting classes and time to grow them up? Patience. The payoff is coming.

    Updated after the win over West Virginia: Kenrich Williams: Current career rebounds: 763 (PASSED Dennis Davis, now #9 all-time) -Needs 20 to pass Kurt Thomas for #8 -Needs 21 to pass H.E. Kirchner for #7 -Needs 28 to pass Dick O'Neal for #6 -Needs 33 to pass Mickey McCarty for #5 ...Needs 204 to break Reggie Smith's school record -At his current season average of 9.6 per game, he'd need 22 games to reach that mark - with just 11 regular season games remaining. But that average has been dragged down by a few low-minute games (Texas Southern, Tennessee Tech) - and the Frogs should play at least a few postseason games. Current career points: 977 -Needs 23 to become the 35th member of TCU's 1,000-point club Current career steals: 125 - (#7 all-time) -Needs 1 to own #7 outright -Needs 5 to pass Darrell Browder for #6 -Needs 9 to pass Ryan Carroll for #5 -Needs 13 to pass Malcolm Johnson for #4 -Needs 31 to pass Corey Santee for #3 -Needs 39 to pass Mike Jones for #2 -Needs 44 to break Kyan Anderson's school record -Oddly enough, Kenrich has been without a steal in three straight games - at his new/current season average of 2.1 per game, he'd need 21 games to reach that mark (11 regular season games left) Current season total rebounds: 183 -Needs 129 to pass Ronny Stevenson's 1957 season -At his current season average of 9.6 per game, he'd need 14 games to reach that mark (11 regular season games left). Current season total steals: 40 -Needs 19 to pass John Lewis '89 for #10 all-time -Needs 20 to pass Alex Robinson '17 for #9 -Needs 22 to pass Junior Blount '02 for #8 -Needs 24 to pass Tony Edmond '90 & Malique Trent '16 for #6 Vladimir Brodziansky: Current career blocks: 152 (4th all-time) -Needs 15 to pass Kurt Thomas for #3 -Needs 19 to pass Derrick Davenport for #2 -Needs 20 to break James Penny's school record -At his current season average of 1.9 per game, he needs 11 games to reach that mark (11 regular season games left) Current career points: 1,175 -Needs 252 to pass Gary Turner for #10 all-time -At his current average of 15.4 per game, he needs 17 games to reach that mark (11 regular season games left) Current season total blocks: 36 -Needs 12 to pass Craig Sibley '89 & Marlon Dumont '02 for sole possession of #10 all-time -Needs 14 to pass Karvair Shepherd '14 for #9 -Needs 26 to pass Alvardo Parker '07 for #8 Alex Robinson: Current career assists: 334 -Needs 6 to pass Thomas McTyer & MIke Jones for sole possession of 10th place all-time -Needs 20 to pass Jamie Dixon for #9 -Needs 44 to pass Hank Thorns for #8 -Needs 81 to pass Tony Edmond for #7 ...Needs 242 to break Corey Santee's school record

    Am I the only one annoyed at the constant mention that TCU was 0-11 against ranked teams in the Scholl? I mean, yeah, I guess that's technically right, but I have a hard time pretending that that's not the same building as the DMC. Mostly because...it's the same building. I mean, we beat Kansas there. Minor nitpick. I thought the guys played a great game, they played through the press really well, didn't seem overwhelmed by it at all. Lots of open dunks and open corner threes as a result. Only negative that really stood out to me was Vlad going 0-6 for 3. I get it, in the flow of the game those shots made sense for the most part, but I feel like that shot is something you go with like once or twice a game just to keep it in the back of your opponents' heads. And the end of the game, man, what a cluster. I went and looked at the play-by-play, starting with a minute left in the game down by 8 WVU fouled TCU SEVEN times. And not only that but they countered a lot of those fouls with attempted 2-point drives to the lane. Took 15 minutes to finish the game, and that 5th foul by Carter with 4 seconds left down by nine, I mean, you just should just be embarrassed as a team at that point. Give it a rest. Really took the shine off the win, and it led to the weird situation where security had started clearing out the student section so they wouldn't charge the floor, but then they ended up doing it anyway, only a bunch of people had left by then, so it ended up looking like the Kansas game, except we actually had a lot of fans at this game so it shouldn't have looked as empty as it did.

    The key to our success on offense is going to be rebuilding the offensive line with only one starter returning. Jeremy Clark had some really positive reports from the about McKinney's work ethic and leadership so far. If that translates to on the field performance, then one problem is solved. An offensive line with these starters might not be too shabby. T McKinney G Iwuagu (started most games in '17) C Hollins G Trey Elliott (had a handful of starts in '16) T Niang (played quite a bit as true frosh and last year as a soph) Austin Myers could push to start at both tackle positions or they could even slide him over to guard if we want to put our absolute best 5 on the field at all times. However, we have 3 seniors at guard in Elliott, McDermott-Vai (former d-lineman) Gaynor (juco who redshirted last year). Plus, Wes Harris and Quazzy White are 2 RFr who could see playing time at guard. So, in theory, we have good depth at guard although even though no one but Iwuagu has a lot of starting experience. The 3 candidates to start at OT probably put us in good shape there but if you move Myers to guard, you have zero experience behind the starters. Same at center, Hollins is the presumed favorite but he didn't play that much last year as a RFr. Hunter Harris (Wes's brother) is the only other center on the roster and he has zero collegiate experience. My guess is that they may try to make a center out of one of the senior guards, either Elliott or Gaynor, for depth purposes or maybe even to step in and start. If we put together a good offensive line and are able to run the ball, I think we have the WR's to make Robinson look good. I also think we run the QB a lot more with Robinson than we did with Kenny. If we make them pay attention to the QB as a running threat, it will help open up the passing game and free up the RB's. We're going to see a lot more read option and RPO's with Robinson. That fits Muehlstein's game better as well so that if the back up has to come in, we will still have a running threat and won't have to change the offense.

    Despite being poleaxed by UT over the weekend, the Lady Frogs inched up a little in the ESPN Bracketology. They are now the 1st team 'on the bubble', at the the top of the '1st 4 Out' list. Their current projected record is 20-9/11-7. if they can accomplish that, and get at least 1 win in the conference tourney, that MIGHT be enough to get them in the Dance.

    Let's not go all Baylor on this. Ragging on someone suing your school without knowing the facts yourself is a bad look. Kolby is bitter, Gary is an ass sometimes. Hopefully this thing goes away soon but let's not make it worse by treating it like Baylor fans treated the girls who sued their school.

    The details are coming in slowly but the Bimbo made a $50,000 loan to a friend (30 day loan). The loan was secured with a race horse, three Razor 4 wheelers and a 16 year old pick up truck. Yeti sales and loan sharking, her future looks bright!

    Were you listening to our radio guys? John Denton said CJD wasn't even moving his jaw when he got thrown out. I would have thought it had something to do with the foul called on ARob when the KSU guy scraped his arm and made it bleed while the ball went OOB. Robinson was trying to get the ref to see what happened and mayabe Jamie was trying to back him up, but Denton said he wasn't saying anything. The first foul was when Jamie and one of the refs were going back and forth about a call or non-call and the guy calls the T and, according to Estridge, says, "You cannot swear and you cannot insinuate we are cheating. Not another word." Then, Jamie tries to shake the guy's hand, like he's sorry and whatever and the ref refuses and the head official comes over and tells CJD, "that's enough". Badly called game, IMO. RSK might disagree.
