    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

    Vanderbilt (who lost to TCU)* takes the championship. * “Vanderbilt (who lost to TCU)” is the correct usage for references to the Vanderbilt baseball team for the foreseeable future.

    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!

    The Frog Horn is like the Jedi Saga. The Frog Horn is not a power you have. It's not about lifting rocks. It's the energy between all things, a tension, a balance that binds the universe together. But the problem is that the greatest thread this board has known (the thread that shall not be named), was discovered in June 2018 and was deleted at the request of the OP, who then had to change his profile and go incognito. Now there is no balance.

    Into the 2nd set trailing... 2-0! The Camster gets the early break yet again! 3-0. 4-1. 5-1! Another break! This set is looking good! 5-2. Cam broken easily. (Ouch). The winner will get #3 seed Sasha Zverev, who has a bye this round. 6-2! Another break and Cam squares the match at 1-all. On to the 3rd! 4-3 in the 3rd. No breaks yet. 5-3!!! Cam gets the key break at a decisive time after falling behind 40-love!! Cam advances to face Zverev 5-7, 6-2, 6-3! An excellent finish after a disappointing 1st set! Zverev is ranked at ATP#7, has been in the Top 10 for several years, he won this tourney the last time it was in Montreal (2017), he's seeded 3rd and he beat Cam the one time they played at Acapulco. Cam was interviewed by the U.K. press and said that because Sasha prevailed last time, the pressure was all on [Zverev.] Yeah, right - I hope Cam makes a good showing but he will not be favored.

    Getting this thread back on track - from my point of view, the "chip" started in 1998 - total transformation of the program, and we continued to progress. There were phases, but each one got us closer to an elite level. There are too many to name, but my chipness reads as (defined as talented, overlooked, over-performed, or just nasty): Reggie Hunt (would absolutely light people up), Jason Goss, LT, Jason Phillips, Stephen Hodge, Tank, Robert Henson, Daryl Washington, David Hawthorne, George Layne, Batteaux, Doctson, Jeff Ballard, Dalton, Kerley, Jimmy Young, Bart Johnson, etc. I'm clearly leaving out way too many people, particularly OL and DL...but I think the point of it is going back to way beyond the Big 12 years and realizing we had some amazing players that were counted out because we weren't "big time". I love the message...let's get this season started.

    If (BIG if) Janczak's tournament performance is sustainable, that gives us a 3-man starting rotation (Lodolo, King, Janczak) you can kinda, sorta hang your hat on. Then we just have to hope they can go deep enough and get enough run support to hold on when the bullpen comes in ...

    The times for Thursday's matches have been announced - TCU v. The Evil Empire is scheduled to be the 2nd match of the day and is listed to start at 1:00 p.m. (CDT), following the Cavs v. the Deacs in an all-ACC quarter. Some annoying guy by the name of Chris Del Conte is already tweeting about it - man, that guy is really starting to get on my nerves. Who does he think he is??!! The Epitome of Evil is 26-3 on the season; 5-0 in the Big12 (not counting their L to Baylor in the tourney finals), 16-1 at home, 6-0 away (including at Ft. Worth) but only 4-2 on neutral courts. They really haven't ventured away from Austin all that much. They have W's over just about everyone, including Mississippi, SMU, Washington, Miami, UTSA, A&M-CC, North Carolina, Tulsa, Arkansas, Illinois, USC, Incarnate Word, Georgia, N.C. State, Rice, Ohio State, Columbia, Tech, Baylor, TCU, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma (again), Tennessee Tech, USF and Cal. Their only losses were to Ohio State (indoors at Chicago which they avenged in Austin albeit the Buckeyes were Wolf-less), USC (at home but they had beaten the Trojans in Chicago) and Baylor (at Lawrence in the Big 12 tourney but they had beaten the Bears in the regular season). They've only lost 1 point (to USF) in the entire NCAA tourney, cruising through Tennessee Tech like they were tissue paper, USF and Cal. They are extremely good and hot. We know them well - their stars are #7 Christian Sigsgaard (who shared the Big 12 Player of the Year honor with Rybo)(Denmark), #12 Yuya Ito (Japan), #80 Leonardo Telles (Brazil), #55 Harrison Scott (Canada), Colin Markes (Austin) and Rodrigo Banzer (Bolivia). Their doubles line-up is #5 Scott/Sigsgaard, Markes/Telles and Chih Chi Huang (Canada)/Ito. Their interim coach is Bruce Berque - scroll back to read how he got the job. When he was head coach at Michigan, he recruited the Camster but ruthlessly did not inform Cam about how frickin cold Michigan gets in the winter. They are the Big 12 regular season champs and won the Big 12 tourney last year. They're ranked and seeded #2 but have been #1 during the season. To beat them will take a Herculean effort and would be magical and soporific. With this morning's W, Cam Norrie has qualified for the main draw in Roma.

    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 ...

    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.

    Its early, but the Reds new manager, David Bell, has stated on record that Brandon Finnegan has "a spot on the team". Pretty interesting, could just be positive chatter, but I'm hopeful. Apparently his velocity is back too. Watch for the Reds to battle for the NL Central this year after 4 straight awful years. Lots of new faces and pieces.

    False All good guesses, but wrong. The foul for illegal batting is enforced from the end of the run, which is the B-4 yard line. The try will be replayed from the B-2 (half the distance from the goal line).

Next scheduled start is Friday night in Pittsburgh. -Carpenter is 2-for-12 in his first three games back from injury. He's now hitting .214 for the year. -Cron struck out in his only post-break at-bat so far. He's now hitting .204 in 25 total games for the D'Backs this year. -Holaday went 1-for-3 with a walk in his first post-break appearance for the Marlins, extending his hit streak to 7 and bumping his season average up to .313

    In other Cancun news, Nick Chappell surveyed past Karl Poling (Princeton), 5-7, 6-4, 6-2. Reese Stalder and Eduardo Roldan were also scheduled today to play in separate matches with their non-Frog partners. (The web scoreboard is unavailable. I suspect it's on the short bus ride from Cancun to the impressive Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza, which the Fractal Frog visited in the early 90s.) In results that I think none of us will endorse, our Czech signees, Tadeas and Tomas, were both bounced from singles in their tournament in Pardubice, Czech Republic, yesterday.

    All square now at a set apiece. On to the deciding 3rd set! 2-love! Alexandrovich gets the early break! 2-1. 3-2. Still up that break. 4-2! Whew! Alex holds at no-ad barely. 40-love for a 2nd break! Rybo breaks again at love!!! Looking great at 5-2!! He'll serve to advance to the Round of 16! If he wins, he'll next face the winner of A&M's Hady Habib and Illinois's Alex Brown, which has just started. Rybo serves it out at love and advances to the 3rd round! 3-6, 7-5, 6-2!! It's the first time since 2016 (Norrie) that a Frog has made it this far in the NCAA singles tourney.

    Broussard Named Assistant Coach FORT WORTH, Texas – TCU head men's basketball coach Jamie Dixon has hired Duane Broussard as an assistant coach. "Duane has a long history in college basketball and has been around a lot of talented players and coaches," said Dixon. "He's a person of high character and is well respected throughout the coaching profession. I'm really excited to have Duane and his family join us at TCU." Broussard just finished his sixth season as an assistant coach at UCLA under Steve Alford and was elevated to the role of associate head coach in Oct. 2017. In six seasons, he guided the Bruins to four NCAA Tournaments (2014, 2015, 2017, 2018) and three Sweet 16 appearances (2014, 2015, 2017). His work on the recruiting trail has seen the Bruins secure four incoming classes that have been ranked in the top five, nationally, over the past five years. https://gofrogs.com/news/2019/4/2/mens-basketball-broussard-named-assistant-coach.aspx

But he’s been given his chance and doing well." https://sportsday.dallasnews.com/college-sports/collegesports/2019/02/01/great-story-kenrich-williams-path-nba-generated-yet-another-wave-optimism-tcu
