    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!

    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.

    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.

    The Sun Bowl was the game that made me pay attention to TCU. (Of course, meeting the future Mrs. Turk sealed the deal.) There was a USC grad at the office that, in the lead up to the game, was the personification of hubris. There was a casual Frog fan in the office (a Baylor grad - those were the days of innocence...) and USC-boy just LOVED to tell our resident TCU fan how USC was going to mop up the field with the Frogs. That was a fun Monday.

    Once McCuin signs this evening, we will have 22 signed with Barlow likely to sign in February. Brown may or may not sign now or later. He has some unspecified issue and is no longer on the Newton team. Apparently, it's not grades. Technically the limit is 25 but we have some kids who will enroll early and count against the 2018 class which will allow us to sign a few more kids. I think they're looking at getting a grad transfer at QB and maybe at DE as well. Then, they may fill in with some off the radar type JUCO kids like they did with Demercado last year and Mike Epley a couple of years ago or some high school kids that qualify late. Paul Dawson and Matt Pryor are other examples of guys who signed way after the signing deadline and turned into players. There have some misses like Ezra Tuaua and Pettis-Wilson too but overall our staff does a good job of beating the bushes and finding guys who can eventually contribute.

    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

    Remember that Dixon got the job at Pitt when his mentor, Ben Howland, was hired by UCLA. He took the Bruins to three consecutive Final Fours, but was fired in 2013 immediately after winning a conference title. Dixon knows he has a good thing going here. And him publicly turning down UCLA will only help cement the growing status that TCU is already establishing among recruits.

    Those of you that watched the North Shore/Duncanville game know that wasn't a case where a pedestrian game stumbled into a memorable ending. That was a great game from start to (unbelievable) finish. Five new Frogs earned state championship rings in their final high school seasons this fall: Wyatt Harris, Colt Ellison, Josh Foster, Marcus Williams and Zach Marcheselli. Hopefully, Darwin Barlow and Taumazia Brown will sign on the dotted line in February to make it seven!

    Not 2019 baseball, but thought it was interesting that Feltman was listed as one of five most important players to lead the Red Sox to their next title, along with Mookie, Benintendi, Devers and prospect Jay Groome: https://www.pitcherlist.com/dynasty-days-of-christmas-5-golden-rings-red-sox/

    He's not really a small guy. 6'2" is plenty tall for a college QB. He may look a little skinny right now but he played football, basketball, baseball and ran track in high school. Once he gets in a college S&C program, he's going to get a lot more solid. He's also a really athletic kid. Probably the most athletic QB we've ever signed. The Nike camps have something called a SPARQ rating to measure athleticism. It includes a 40, an agility shuttle, a vertical and something called the power throw. https://www.freelapusa.com/what-is-the-nike-sparq-combine/ Duggan's SPARQ was the highest of any dual threat QB and better than a lot of WR's and RB's. Here are the top 100 ranked kids from all the Nike camps and Duggan, the white kid from Iowa, is 21st overall. He ran a 4.58 electronically timed 40 and a 4.1 shuttle. He also ran a 21.65 200M as a junior. He may not be a shifty as Boykin was but his 40 is much faster than what Boykin ran before the draft. https://www.theopening.com/national-leaderboard As for his passing ability, Jeremy Clark says that Duggan and Boykin have the strongest arms he has seen of any kid TCU has signed since he started covering the team. Here is the 247 scouting report from their national evaluator. I'm really excited about Duggan. He and Rogers are going to get all the reps this spring because Collins will still be recovering from surgery and if Rogers isn't 100% by the fall, I would not be surprised if Duggan starts.

    Both of Mikel Barkley's parents are in the military so he flew to Okinawa to be with them when he signed yesterday.

    The finals at Lake Nona between Rybo and Brandon Holt have finally started. They were milling about for nearly an hour trying to dry one end of the court before they could start (it apparently rained there last night). Alex has started strong and has taken a 3-love lead in the first set. It's being streamed live on the usta site. 3-1. Holt holds and wins his first game. Rybo is wearing the school colors (purple and black - sorry PD). 4-1. It must be VERY humid there because they've both worked up quite a sweat already. 4-2. Holt playing much better. 5-2! Alex holds at love. Holt is Tracy Austin's son - he's 20 and won the Claremont Futures tourney in September (ATP#734). 6-2! Rybakovsky holds and takes the first set with ease! 1-love in the 2nd set. Alex has changed shirts and is now wearing a grey shirt with the frog logo on the front. 1-all. Holt holds and this set may be tougher than the first. Holt last played a pro tourney at the Tiburon Challenger - losing to Tommy Paul in the 2nd round. 2-1. Alex hits a beautiful passing shot to take the game. 3-1!! Holt has adopted a much riskier strategy of coming to net on every point. He led 30-love, but Rybo took aim and won 4 straight points. 4-1. Alexandrovich holds again. 5-1! Another break and this one looks over. 6-1!! Alex takes the title! He won two Futures tourneys over the summer, took the Summer ITA's in doubles with Max Kurzban, won the Battle in the Bay tourney and now the USTA Blizzard! If he could just do better in the Challengers, it'd be a fantastic year. He'll get one more chance at the Orlando Challenger next week and he won't have to go through qualies. He's also on the U.S. National College team!
