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

    SEC loses to Memphis, Georgia State, North Carolina and Wyoming, but they mean more and play an extra non-conference game and all and are way better than your conference. If this was the Pac-12, ESPN would be talking about breaking up the conference...

    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

    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!

    I'm looking forward to this game. I am feeling optimistic about this year so far, and I think this game is winnable 65-70% of the time. I am looking at two areas to help decide the game TCU's D line vs their O line. If successful, that can put their QB on his heels most of the game and close down their pass game. The second part will be the Purdue tight end. I don't worry about one guy beating TCU, as in their all star receiver, but when someone like a tight end steps up and we have no answer. (and with TEs we rarely do)

    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.

    In the biggest conference realignment move in the last few years, Connecticut is apparently leaving the AAC and returning to the Big East. The purported reason is because they disliked the new AAC TV deal because it eliminated their ability to sell their 3rd tier rights to SNY, which, for them, was a big deal because of the strength of their women's and men's basketball program (and instead relegated all of that to ESPN+). But it's also because their football program has been losing fans and money since they got relegated out of the P5 in the last conference realignment. The state built and owns a brand new football stadium, but it's 30 miles or so away from campus and because they've been horrible the past few years, the students don't go to the games (against AAC teams they don't really know) and they've been losing money hand over fist. Going back to the Big East means that their basketball (and other sports) will be back in a league that they know (Georgetown, St. Johns, Providence, Seton Hall etc...) - football apparently will stay in the AAC for 1 year and then either go indy, be moved back down to FCS or join the MAC or C-USA (doubtful). Money-wise, they'll lose the reported $7 million per year that the AAC just negotiated, but they'll have the Big East's Fox deal ($3-4 million) plus whatever they will get for their 3rd tier stuff. When they left the Big East with the other football members, they lost the Big East name, but got to keep the exit fees from all the other departing schools (including TCU) - now that that's all been received and amortized, there is no remaining value there. Back when TCU was in the wilderness, I resented the fact that UConn could start a FBS program and immediately move into the BCS ranks without any years of dues-paying while TCU had spent over 100 years in the top level and then be relegated out of it. But now, I kind of feel sorry for them - their closeness to Storrs and ESPN didn't really pay off for them as they had hoped and expected. As a Hoya fan, I'm happy to have them back in the Big East. This is kind of a prestige blow to the AAC which has been pushing the "P6" argument - losing their only flagship state school and arguably most recognizable name (because of their nattys in basketball) surely won't help. UConn has been to a BCS/NY6 bowl and now they're dying (or at least being relegated severely).

    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 ...

    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.
