    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

    Only 3 matches left. Both teams need to win 2 of them for the W. Gray 7-6, 3-6, 0-0; Kruger 7-5, 4-6, 0-0; Jong 5-4 in his 2nd set breaker after losing his first set. Sander takes his breaker 9-7 and he's on to a 3rd set too! So it's all even - TCU 2 MSU 2, with 3 matches remaining and all starting their 3rd and deciding sets. Gray 0-0; Kruger 1-1; Jong 0-0. Gray 1-0; Kruger 2-1; Jong 0-1. Yes!! Ali wins at no-ad and it's 2-0 (up a break)!; Bertus 2-1; Sander 0-1. Yes! Sander takes it at no-ad! 1-all; Gray 2-love; Kruger 3-1 (up a break). Gray broken at no-ad 2-1; Kruger loses at no-ad 3-2; Jong loses at no-ad 1-2. Gray 3-2; Kruger 4-2; Jong 2-all. Sander breaks at love and goes up a break 3-2!! YES!!! Alastair breaks at no-ad and goes up 4-2!! We're up a break in all 3 matches!! Do you believe in miracles??!! YES!! Sander holds at no ad!! 4-2!! Gray 4-2!; Kruger 5-2! We only need 2 of these... Texas wins 4-0. The Longhorns would be next... Bertus Kruger WINS!! It's TCU 3 MSU 2!! 7-6, 4-6, 6-2! Gray 5-2! Jong 4-2! Gray 5-2; Jong 4-3. Gray 5-3; Jong 4-3. We just need 1 of em to win. C'mon - this has been a looong match. Sander holds at no-ad. Both matches at 5-3, with TCU leading both. Sander was at no-ad and match point but loses, so it's 5-4. Alastair is stuck on 15-all - injury??!! Line call argument??!! The Man from Twickenham clinched it 7-6, 3-6, 6-3 and it's ON TO ORLANDO as the Frogs win 4-2 over Mississippi State!!!!

    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 it's on to the 3rd set between Norrie and Millman in Rome! 0-1 as Millman holds. 1-2. 2-all. Cam gets the break at love and takes a 3-2 lead! 4-2! All Cam needs now is to serve it out. 4-3. 5-3. 5-4. Now all Cam needs is to hold one more time to advance. Cam evens the all-time series with Millman with a 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 win to advance to the 2nd round of the main draw at Rome!

    The reason Mississippi State is higher ranked and is favored at home against TCU on Saturday is because they are 19-3, they won the SEC tournament championship and their overall record is just more impressive despite the fact that we beat them in Chicago (4-1) and Tempe in an exhibition. Their W's include Wichita State, Arizona, Miami, USF, Tech, Tulane, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Vanderbilt, Kentucky, South Carolina, Alabama, Auburn, Tennessee, Georgia, Arkansas, Mississippi, A&M, LSU, Vanderbilt (again), South Carolina (again), Tennessee (again), Alabama State and South Alabama. They've won 14 in a row. They haven't lost a point yet in the NCAA's. Their only L's are to TCU, Baylor and Florida (which was on 3/10). They are undefeated (12-0) at home in Starkville. They are 8-3 against the Top 25 and 12-0 against teams ranked 26-50. Nuno Borges is the #1 ranked singles player in the country (just passing J.J. Wolf on the last week of the season) and is seeded #1 Slam Tennis says that their schedule strength is the #1 in the country. Borges and Strahinja Rakic are the #3 doubles team in the country. They just don't lose much - they are clearly a legit contender for the national championship. Their usual singles line-up is #1 Borges (Portugal), #61 Giovanni Oradini (Italy), Rakic (Serbia), Niclas Braun (Germany), Trevor Foshey (Florida) and Florian Broska (Germany) and their doubles line-up is #3 Borges/Rakic, #32 Braun/Oradini and Foshey/Gregor Ramskogler (Austria). Most of them were the top junior players in their respective countries. Their head coach is Matt Roberts, in his 5th season (7th overall at MSU; 9th overall as a coach), who has turned the Bulldogs into a national power, winning their first SEC title since 1996 last year and making the quarters at the NCAA's since 1998 as well. Roberts played at Arkansas (2003-06) and also coached at Arkansas-Little Rock and Michigan State. Obviously, he's known for his recruiting. Nonetheless, Slam Tennis only rates them as a 55% favorite, the closest of all the supers. This is probably because of the H2H record. Back in February, they took the doubles point when Borges/Rakic beat Rybo/Gray 7-6 (7-5) and Foshey/Ramskogler beat Fomba/Jong 6-2, but then we jumped all over them in singles, getting W's from Jong over Broska, Fomba over Foshey, Kruger over Braun and Stalder over Rakic. Rybo and Borges were 6-6 in the 3rd and Gray and Oradini had also split sets and were at 2-3 when play ended. Like us, the Bulldogs are not a good indoors team and that might have been the difference (they lost to Baylor the next day), but their recap says that their problem was that they were serving poorly and we weren't. I expect we'll lose the doubles point, but if we can win that, our chances seem good. If not, we really need the same kind of performance from the bottom of the line-up that we got in Chicago and it sure would be nice if #4 Alex could beat #1 Nuno. Roditi says that it will be an "absolute war." Can we beat them yet again? In Starkville where they haven't lost all season?

    Really great article by John Henry about ex-TCU DE Chad McCarty and his run for FW school board Place 2. After he graduated TCU with his master's degree in education administration, he worked his way up to become principal at his former HS, Eastern Hills. After four years working there, he quit to begin a business with two other school administrators serving the kids he saw were falling through the cracks. They are providing work-for-pay for at-risk students while they learn a trade and earn a diploma through the group's automotive repair business. These kids have responsibilities as wage earners in their homes and many were skipping school to work in legitimate jobs, or finding other ways to make money illegally. AutoDuco, an automotive maintenance and repair shop in Mansfield, is designed to have four high school age apprentices assigned to each technician. While they’re learning a trade and income, they’re also working on their high school diploma through an internet-based home-school program. The school district did offer a similar program, but not for the kids most vulnerable. That is, those not eligible for the programs because of attendance or behavioral issues. “We try to hire young people that are having a tough time getting a foothold in society,” McCarty said. “We were tired, myself and my business partners … we got tired of kicking out the same kids. All of them had the same answers as to why they were doing things: ‘We need to find a way to make some money.’” If you live on the east side of FW and can vote in the Place 2 school board election, perhaps you should consider our Frog candidate. CGP would vote for him: “I would definitely back him,” said Patterson, who doesn’t live within Place 2’s east-side boundaries. “I like honest people. He’s an honest person who works hard. He believes in kids. For me, those three things are all of the qualities that would be great for someone running for school board.” https://www.pressboxdfw.com/tcu-ex-mccarty-now-trying-to-force-school-board-turnover/

    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.

    Yep, we move to 12-3, with our 7th W in a row w/ a 6-0 sweep of LMU. Roditi went back to the usual line-up in both doubles and singles and the guys played well with quick W's across the board (Fomba was the only player who did not finish out a W). If you count our 3-0 record at Tempe and our (almost) W over USF, we're "really" 16-3, with multiple ranked W's. Next up, though, is a really tough home match against Columbia, who's in the Top 10 on Wednesday. Jerry Lopez won the doubles final at Cancun and, with Jorge Brian Panta, took home the championship trophy with a 7-6 (11-9), 4-6, (10-8) W over Reis da Silva and Yamacita today. This is the 2nd all-time pro doubles championship for Jerry and will definitely help him in the ITF World doubles rankings. Congrats to Jerry - this is a fantastic result for him!

    In front of a raucous sell-out crowd in Acapulco, an energized Nick Kyrgios just beat Rafa Nadal 3-6, 7-6, 7-6 in a 3:00 hour+ epic match which sets up a quarters match against Wavro (Stan Wawrinka) for the right to face the winner of the Norrie/MackieMack match in the semis. The Acapulco tourney is really kind of a big deal because next week is Indian Wells (er, the BNP Paribas tourney) where all the top pros will be. I'm not sure if Cam is highly ranked enough to qualify for the main draw, but I'm betting that if he isn't (and beating someone like Kyrgios/Wavro in the semis would be a huge attention-getter), that Facundo will convince him to try to qualify for it. If Indian Wells fans are as into it as the Acapulco fans are, it'll be quite an event. One other thing - Cam just passed the $1,000,000 mark in career earnings after making the 2nd round in Rio. He's just the 4th Scottish player to ever do it; I'm pretty sure he's the first Frog.

    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.

    In glorious fashion, the Fighting Frogs from lil ole TCU walloped the mighty Bulldogs of Mississippi State today at Midtown! I got there on time but the Frogs barely made it for the national anthem (I do not own a cellphone and never have). We lost the doubles point in a breaker which we should have won and things looked bad early on. But then, we proceeded to absolutely dominate the singles on every single court and it was lots of fun watching the multitudinous Bulldog fans shut up and the "Hail What Hail State" chant grew ever quieter with every passing minute. At one point, SID Mark Cohen ran onto the court to block a Nuno Borges shot (oh wait, that didn't actually happen but I swear I saw something similar recently). I was dialed in watching Rybo v. Borges and they were both playing very well - Borges is a streaky Tsitsipas-like player who double faults twice in a row and then reels off amazing shot after amazing shot. But Rybo played like Cam Norrie and was incredibly steady throughout. We quickly won all 6 straight first sets. In the end, Rybo's match didn't matter because Stalder won easily first, then Jong won, then Kruger won and then Fomba was up 5-2 and looked like he was going to win, but blew his lead and got taken to a breaker. Meanwhile, Rybo won his first set 7-6 and Borges, the Arthur Ashe award winner of the Leadership and Sportsmanship award last year, tried to bad call Rybo on a ball that was clearly in and boos erupted and the ump overruled him and Rybo won. The 2nd set then went to a breaker as well, but just as Rybo was about to win, Fomba stormed back to win his breaker and that was that. 4-1, with ease. We're 5-2, we just beat #2 and Carolina (who beat Baylor) is next tomorrow morning. I was mortified to learn from the program that SMU has won this thang twice and Baylor once. That's gotta change.

    All-time, Mississippi State leads TCU 3-2 in the historic series - the Frogs won the first two meetings but the Bulldogs have won the last 3 straight. Not counting Tempe, the last time we faced them was in 2012 and MSU got the win 4-1 in Starkville. At neutral sites, TCU leads 2-1. MSU is 6-0 and is effectively the #2 team in the nation, but they, like us, are not necessarily good on indoor courts. Their 6 W's are over Wichita State, Arizona, Miami, USF, Tech and Tulane. Tech gave them the toughest match and only lost 4-2. Borges is ranked 5th in singles; Foshey, Oradini and Braun are also ranked. They are undefeated on the doubles point all year. For the Frogs, Rybakov, Gray and Kruger are also ranked. The match is scheduled for 9:00 a.m. - if all goes well, I'll be there and I'm not gonna bring a tablet or phone, so I'll do a re-cap tomorrow night.

    And we're back! Rybo has evened his set at 3-all; Gray 2-4; Stalder 2-3; Kruger 3-all; Fomba 3-2; Jong 2-3. Well, now they're showing Rybo down 1-4; Gray 2-4; Stalder 2-3; Kruger 3-all; Fomba 3-2; and Jong 2-3. And Roditi is saying we'll start at 5:00 p.m. Thanks MSU scorer for giving me false hope! Now they've truly re-started. Rybo 1-5; Gray 3-4; Stalder 3-4; Kruger 3-all; Fomba 3-all; Jong 2-4. We've dug a huge hole in singles and need to change the mo. Rybo falls 1-6; Gray 3-4; Stalder 3-4; Kruger 3-4; Fomba 4-3; Jong 2-5. Not looking good - the rain delay seems to have energized them and not us. Rybo broken in game 1 of his 2nd; Gray 5-4!; Stalder falls 3-6; Kruger 4-all; Fomba 4-3; Jong falls 2-6. We've lost 3 first sets in singles. C'mon guys! Ohio State and Virginia have advanced. Only 12 teams remain. Texas and UNC have taken their doubles points. Rybo 0-2 in his 2nd; Gray 5-all; Stalder 0-1 in his 2nd; Kruger 4-5; Fomba 4-5; Jong 1-0 in his 2nd. Rybakov 1-2 in his 2nd; Gray 6-5; Stalder 0-2 in his 2nd; Kruger 5-all; Fomba 5-all; Jong 1-all in his 2nd. In theory, we're still in this, but... Rybo 1-3 in his 2nd (he lost yet another no-ad); Gray into a breaker at 6-all; Stalder 1-2 in his 2nd; Kruger takes it 7-5!!; Fomba 5-all; Jong 2-1 in his 2nd. We have a chance!! Gray takes his breaker 7-6! Fomba takes his first set 7-5!! We've now won 3 first sets!! All 2nd sets now. Rybo 3-4; Gray 0-0; Stalder 2-3; Kruger 0-1; Fomba 0-0; Jong 3-2. Rybakov 4-5; Gray 0-1; Stalder 2-4; Kruger 1-2; Fomba 1-0; Jong 4-2. Rybo falls 1-6, 4-6 and it's TCU 1 MSU 1. Gray 1-all; Stalder 2-5; Kruger 2-all; Fomba 1-all; Jong 4-3. Stalder falls 3-6, 2-6 and it's TCU 1 MSU 2. Gray 1-2; Kruger 2-all; Fomba 2-1; Jong 4-3. Gray 2-all (he wins at no-ad); Kruger 3-2; Fomba 2-all; Jong 5-4 (he wins at no-ad). We need 3 of these 4, but we won 3 of the first sets. Gray 2-3; Kruger 3-4; Fomba 3-2; Jong 5-all. Gray 2-4 (sigh); Kruger 3-4; Fomba 4-2; Jong 6-5. Gray 2-5; Kruger 4-all; Fomba 5-2; Jong into a breaker at 6-all. Kruger falls 4-6 and he's on to a 3rd set. Gray 3-5; Fomba 5-3; Jong 3-all in his breaker. Fomba takes his match 7-5, 6-3 and it's TCU 2 MSU 2!!

    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.

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 ...

    Texas leads Rice 5-1 in the most-watched tennis match in quite awhile down in Austin... Bearing in mind the presumption of innocence and the fact that Center's lawyer says that he will plead not guilty when arraigned in Boston tomorrow, I've read the indictment and the affidavit and it doesn't look good for Center at all. He's accused of taking a $100,000 bribe for facilitating the admission of a California applicant in 2015 by pretending that the student was a tennis player and offering him a partial scholarship (for books) for both admission and a spot on the roster. This apparently worked and the student was admiitted and granted a scholarship, which he quickly renounced although he continued as a student (which was apparently the subterfuge all along). The prosecutors have a cooperating witness, they have the name of the briber and the go-between, they have Center on tape (twice), including a 10/18 meeting at which Center admitted that he had done it and would do it again, saying that he was paid "in the nineties." The discrepancy is that Center then donated $10,000 to UT's new tennis center; which was then being fundraised for by AD Patterson, whom UT fans hate because he was incompetent and couldn't raise money like CDC (that's from surlyhorns of course). Apparently, Center took the money in cash in a parking lot, and (gee, this just gets more and more disgusting)... Center makes $235,000 a year - $100,000 (or just $90,000) is a nice hefty raise from that. He was arrested at 6:00 a.m. by 8 federal marshals (armed according to Center's lawyer) and he appeared in an Austin court for an initial appearance at about noon (with a mob of Austin reporters...) The TCU ties are that Center, of course, used to coach the Frogs, taking over from Tut but then turning his coat two years later to go to Austin. It was 19 years ago, that's in the distant past. More recently, of course, is that CDC is the guy who put him on administrative leave and will have to hire the replacement (if guilty). The interim is Bruce Berque and that's the 3rd TCU tie - Berque was the fairly well regarded head coach at Michigan, who got fired when a new AD was hired several years ago, which then caused the then-Wolverine recruits to de-commit and look elsewhere. One of those Michigan recruits, of course, was Cam Norrie, who Roditi then convinced to come to TCU. berque then got an assistant job at Texas, where he has advanced to associate head coach and now interim head coach. Berque's a good coach and the team, with the new facility (complete with pool), now exists so I don't really expect a big drop-off while this gets adjudicated. We swept Rice though and the Longhorns didn't and I think Ohio State will take them on Thursday too. Final Texas 5 Rice 2.

    Once again, because they're indoors, only 5 matches are possible, so Sander Jong will have to wait (he won yesterday and the official score against Rice was 7-0.) Early on, it's Rybakov 1-all; Gray 1-all; Kruger 0-0; Stalder 2-1; Fomba 1-0. Rybo 2-1; Gray 1-all; Kruger still scoreless(?); Stalder 2-1; Fomba 2-0. Rybo 4-3; Gray 2-1; Kruger 3-1; Stalder 3-2; Fomba 4-0! Alex 4-3; Ali 3-2; Bert 4-1; Widow 3-2; Luc 5-1. Rybo 4-all; Big Al 5-2; Bertus 5-1; Widow 5-2; Luc 5-1. The Red Widow strikes first w/ a 6-2 first set W over Mayo(naise)! Alex 5-4; Ali 5-2; Bert 5-2; Luc 5-2. Gray wins 6-3! Fomba wins 6-2! Rybakov 5-all; Kruger 5-3.

    I like the idea of no cel phones but I also appreciate having one since I like road trips. I can't count on my car breaking down 10ft from an emergency phone on a hwy in the middle of no where more than once. But on the notion of road trips, I nominate Jared to travel to more events and give in depth reports from being there. Much better than reciting scores from online. I don't even mind waiting for the event to finish and him to get to a computer to upload the report.
