    I just re-checked, we did jump them. The site was about 10 minutes behind live. We sit at 62, they dropped to 64.

    That is scary. Winning is everything in some places, it seems. So, you're a parent of a kid at Mt. Vernon HS. What's your reaction to your school board approving this hire?

    Oh TCUDoc, be careful of that rabbit hole. I made the mistake of going down the card collecting hole back in 2010 and it has taken over my life. I mentioned totals in the countdown thread, but I'll throw a few stats on my collection your way. This is according to my massive Excel spreadsheet which probably has a few calculation errors in it by this point (it's 9 years old and 3.2MB) but at any rate: Total known cards: 26,157 Total cards I own: 14,118 Oldest "card" (not a traditional trading card, but still in the same family): 1910 Sweet Caporal Domino Discs #39 Louis Drucke (I have one) Oldest football card (similar to the thing above): 1938 Dixie Lids #1 Sammy Baugh (Have one of those too) Oldest Basketball card: 1972-73 Topps #208 Eugene Kennedy (yup) I actually have most of the cards you have listed above. I think I might start a thread just devoted to this subject. Maybe even try and do a card of the day (or card every so often). Lots of interesting ones to discuss.

    So everyone doesn't forget, the baseball team is not the only frog team in action today. Men's golf has round 2 of the NCAA championships today. Round 1 sucked finishing at +23 and tied for 24th place out of 30. The good news is that Baylor is 29th. Ok St is in first. With the start of the second round today, Ok St has jumped to a big lead over everyone else. Frogs don't start today until later this afternoon.

    We could potentially play 3 today. Or two plus. If we beat OSU, we are scheduled to play them again this evening, although I'm not sure how pushing the end of the Rapists-Frogs game to this morning will affect things.

    Good article about the situation in Forbes this morning. There will be outcry about this. It's actually already started. This pig is going to be coaching CHILDREN. While Mount Vernon doesn't look proud hiring Briles on a late Friday afternoon -- generally, when you release news you hope no one will notice -- its news release belies chest-thumping pride in having the Great Art Briles in its family. The school board voted unanimously to hire him. ... Boy, there's a lot to unpack in that statement, isn't there? What exactly were the "earnest conversations" about? And how is it a superintendent and school board determined a coach with a demonstrated history of choosing winning over anything, including the good conduct of his players, had the kind of life experience they want high schoolers to experience? Perhaps the answer comes in invoking former Baylor coach Grant Teaff in the press release[.] ... "The district administration includes a Title IX coordinator and regular professional development with Title IX training for staff and administrators." That portion of the news release is what we in the business like to call "butt-covering." If it turns out Briles again is in the middle of scandal, Mount Vernon can point to this release and say Grant Teaff and a bunch of other people said he was OK, and we have Title IX people, so, hey, we tried. https://www.forbes.com/sites/bobcook/2019/05/25/a-texas-high-school-inexplicably-decides-art-briles-is-fit-to-lead-young-football-players/?src=rss#58d42e145c77

    EP, I did some housekeeping this morning to keep everything about fArt here in this thread for easier reference. However, your quip about putting your original post in the aptly named "The Sports Dump" thread is noted.

    Our current 98: Adam Plant A few memorable 98s: Jerry Hughes Greg Townsend The Rose Bowl was GP's 98th career victory The previously-mentioned 1998 Sun Bowl -Another play I can't find a video or a photo of, but Reggie Harrell scored a 98-yard touchdown on a pass he caught from Brandon Hassell at Arizona in 2003. The Frogs won that game by the Ticket-friendly score of 13-10 on a Nick Browne field goal in overtime. It was John Mackovic's last game as Arizona's head coach. ...and a bonus 98: The Mavs' 1998 NBA Draft night haul - much maligned locally at the time.

    Nolan Warren's live RPI has them at 63, and we moved up to only 68. (Not sure how "live" it is, though. Was that before the win, or instantly after?)

    B9 Big Cal still on the mound. Chopper to 3rd, out at 1st. 1 away. Single to left center. Fly out to Watson in left center. 2 away. Fly out to Keefer! No means no more Waco Rapists killing cats in OKC! 5-2 Frogs, final!

    Well, it was 5-all when I left and then Nuno won 8 of the next 11 games and Alex ended up losing in the semis 5-7, 3-6. So this was the last match ever for nRybo as a student-athlete for the Frogs (although he'll remain a Frog forever). It was a great career for him - making the semis at the NCAA's, a 3-time All-American, leading the team to 4 Sweet 16's and 2 Elite 8's. With Norrie, he's probably one of the 2 best tennis players TCU has ever had and we've followed his whole career on TFH. Best of luck to Alex in the future! It'll be an all-SEC finals with Nuno facing Paul Jubb of South Carolina.

    I have one of these although this is just an image I pulled off the internet. My collection is in a state of disarray at the moment, but I keep track of what I have in a massive Excel spreadsheet. I might try and find a card for each day of the countdown if I remember. Fun fact: I am currently aware of 26,157 cards featuring former TCU folks. I have 14,118 in my collection.

    Our current 99: Soni Misi A few memorable Frog 99s: Jeremy Breedlove Chance McCarty Braylon "It's already been" Broughton Tevin Lawson KaVontae Turpin's 99-yard kickoff return for a TD against OU last year - I searched and searched and searched for a photo or video, but Quincy Butler had a 99-yard pick six against Southern Miss in 2004. If memory serves me correct, he didn't have a clear path to the endzone - he had to cut back several times and broke multiple tackles before finally finding paydirt. Play seemed like it took minutes. ...and a bonus 99: Tony Dorsett's NFL record 99-yard TD run on Monday Night Football in 1983

    Would be pretty sweet to eliminate them after what happened last year. Do we have to win the entire thing to make an Regional?

    Only fully works if the player's last name is "Jen", "Jenn", "Jenee", "Jenny", "Jenni" or similar, though.
