    That's tough news to break to a kid. Probably best done over dinner at Pappadeaux.

    "Good" game, Frogs (for some values of "good"). See you in 2020!

    This is it, men (and women, and non-gender binaries). It's all come down to a battle with Baylor in order to maintain our slim chances at a Wednesday night football game in a baseball stadium on the day after Christmas. But this isn't just any ol' football game in a baseball stadium on the day after Christmas, it's a football game in a baseball stadium on the day after Christmas in which 6-win teams will be celebrating the world's most iconic cheese-based cracker. Down seasons like this are few and far between, so who knows if we'll ever again have a reason to purchase a Hane's Beefy Tee with this beauty of a logo on it: But seriously, some projections have Oklahoma State vs. USC playing for the Cheez. After this giant curd of a season, it'd be pretty tasty to rattle off wins against Baylor and Oklahoma State, then get a Sun Bowl redux. And I'm dead serious about a t-shirt. I really, really want a reason to buy one. Go Frogs. Go to hell, Baylor.

    It looks like Griffin Kell (K) out of Arlington may have signed his PWO offer to TCU (still waiting on confirmation). Would be a nice cherry on top if true. Having a kicker who can make 50 yard FGs with little effort is a nice asset to have. Update: confirmed

    Then there was the weird fish-frog hybrid SuperFrog that us GenXers had while in school. Apparently when a hybrid fish-frog mates with a lady Easter bunny, the offspring is remarkably human. Evolution is a funny thing ...

    Haha wedding went great! It was picture perfect and a great party afterwards. Curretly in Cabo at the JW Marriott (sidebar- nicest hotel I’ve ever been to. Hands down). For a quick 3 night honeymoon. Then back to the grind.

    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.

    So just in case any of you are up at 7:00 this Sunday morning, click the link below and enter bib number 6149 in the search field at the top of the page. That should give you real time updates as to ol’ Newbomb’s progress and projected finish time in the Cowtown Half Marathon. Hoping to break my PR of 1:53:27, set back in 2005. https://track.rtrt.me/e/RRS-COWTOWN-2019#/tracker

    I rewatched the 2 plays that Justin Rodgers had in the Cheese It Bowl. I want to take back my previous comments. He really did a good job on a limited amount to review. First play: he had a defensive player bounce off of him and he ran to about the line of scrimmage. His running wasn't horrible. IMHO, it seemed that he might have previously had another gear of speed that wasn't there when he took off. Think his running was adequate and could improve with time. Second play: completes a little pass off to the side. Foot work looked good. Coaches could have called a safe play and just called a hand off to the RB. But coaches trusted him to throw the ball in a tough bowl game in the 4th quarter. Both plays were supposed to be passing plays. This causes me to think he is ready. Furthermore, IIRC he wasn't even cleared to play until Nov? I remember seeing an article from the startlegram to something of this nature. Kid has a monster arm which seems pretty accurate. If he could get an oline that can give him time and keep him standing upright he could be slinging the rock all over the field.

    December is usually a slow time for tennis because the top pros are all taking the month off and there just aren't very many tourneys scheduled. And college tennis is also basically over for the fall and won't start up again until the Spring when dual match team competition ramps up. So, here are the year-end ATP rankings for the multitudinous former, current and future Frogs that we follow: Cam Norrie - #91 in singles and #199 in doubles. This is huge because the Top 100 get automatic main draw berths in all the Slams. Alex Rybakov - #535 in singles. A good year, but not that good for Alex means he'll be back playing for the Frogs in the Spring. Nick Chappell - #677 in singles and #649 in doubles. Nick was flirting with the 1000's and bounced back nicely this year. His career will continue. Gerardo Lopez Villasenor - #746 in singles and #1261 in doubles. The Mexican Davis Cupper had a good year although not playing all that much. Trevor Johnson - #938 in singles and #697 in doubles. After graduating, Trevor did fairly well and looks to better in 2019. Jenson Brooksby - #1234 in singles. The Kalamazoo winner has a very bright future. Reese Stalder - #1276 in singles. Reese got his first ATP points and is probably thinking about a full-time pro career (in his usual laid back way). Alastair Gray - NR. Ali's injuries prevented him from playing many tourneys and he lost all his ATP points. Bertus Kruger - NR. Like Ali, Bertus just didn't play enough due to injury and his points have also rolled off. Juan Martin - NR. Juan is an enigma because he hasn't played any pro tourneys and sat out last Spring for the Frogs. Maybe he'll play this Spring. Eduardo Roldan - NR. Also not ranked due to inactivity, but we'll need him this Spring. Sander Jong - NR. Highly ranked as a junior, he just didn't play enough pro (Futures) tourneys to earn points. Max Kurzban - NR. Similarly, he's done well in college, but hasn't broken through in the pros as yet. Jacob Fearnley - NR in singles; #1481 in doubles. Another future Frog with a bright future. It's kind of amazing that we have 14 players that we follow - quite a bit more than most schools. That, plus the fact that TCU has won 3 straight Big12 championships shows that we're definitely a "tennis school."

    I really don't want to play A&M in the Texas Bowl. I"m sure GP would have a good game plan for their offense but I'm not sure we would be able to score on them. The last thing I want to do is end the season with a loss to A&M that we won't be able to avenge for who knows how long. OSU would be a much better matchup for A&M if a Big 12 team has to play them. OSU's explosive offense would probably give the Aggies fits.

    On the morning of 10-27 Tech was looking good: 5-2, "#26" in the AP poll with wins over then #15 OSU and in-state rivals TCU and UH. Needed just one more win for bowl eligibility Meanwhile we were at our low- 3-5 at the end of that day after an upset loss to KU. Over the last five weeks, TT finished up 0-5 and missed out on a bowl and their coach loses his job. Over our last four weeks we went 3-1 and sneaked into a bowl and now have some momentum heading into next season. What a difference a month makes.

    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.

    Former OU WR Malcom Kelly is the new WR coach. The dude was an All-American at OU and a 2nd round draft pick of the Redskins. He's been at A&M Commerce as a GA and then at UH for 2 seasons. Seems like a home run hire. https://247sports.com/college/tcu/Article/Sources-TCU-to-hire-Malcolm-Kelly-as-outside-WR-coach-129482907/

    Took my kiddo out to the match this afternoon - we had a good time, watched Fomba and Jong come back to win in doubles and then Reese Stalder in singles. Sat in front of an older gentleman...turns out, it was Tut Bartzen!

    Joe Scarborough tweeted the usual "Georgia was disappointed that they didn't make the playoffs and didn't care about the game" excuse, to which I replied: "In 2014, TCU went from #3 to #6 in the playoff rankings in the last week of the regular season. They responded by prison-raping Ole Miss in the Peach Bowl 42-3. So why is it that SEC teams are so emotionally fragile and non-SEC teams DON'T MAKE EXCUSES???"

    We had only been living back in the states for about a year and didn't get a lot of TCU games on TV then. My then 4-year old Tyler comes in and says "Mom, TCU is on TV." Watched the rest of the game then. Got back into following TCU football more closely after that. Tyler was really proud he told me the game was on.

    Just to follow up on yesterday's point on the ITA rankings for the fall, following is a list of the current Top 20 players in singles. Obviously, the fall rankings have to be taken with a grain of salt because most players would rather try their hands at earning money on the pro circuits and don't even enter the purely college tourneys (that don't pay anything). But here are Rybo's competitors as of now: 1. Petros Chrysochos - Wake Forest (he's won virtually every major tourney and is the leader by a mile) 2. Jan Zielinski - Georgia 3. J.J. Wolf - Ohio State (best known for the Patrick Kypson spitting incident) 4. Christian Sigsgaard - Texas (up from #54 in the pre-season) 5. Thomas Laurent - Oregon 6. Nicolas Moreno de Alboran - UCSB 7. Paul Jubb - South Carolina 8. Daniel Cukierman - USC 9. Oliver Crawford - Florida 10. Alex Brown - Illinois (last year's Nemesis for the Frogs; the Illini lost Hiltzik and Vukic) 11. Nuno Borges - Mississippi State (usually Top 5; he'll likely move upwards) 12. David Volfson - Cornell (up from NR in the pre-season) 13. Kyle Seelig - Ohio State 14. Alex Rybakov - TCU 15. Emil Reinberg - Georgia 16. Alex Lebedev - Notre Dame 17. Will Little - Baylor 18. Yuya Ito - Texas 19. Laurens Verboven - USC 20. Axel Geller - Stanford
