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

    This is it, men (and women, and non-gender binaries). It's all come down to a battle with Baylor in order to maintain our slim chances at a Wednesday night football game in a baseball stadium on the day after Christmas. But this isn't just any ol' football game in a baseball stadium on the day after Christmas, it's a football game in a baseball stadium on the day after Christmas in which 6-win teams will be celebrating the world's most iconic cheese-based cracker. Down seasons like this are few and far between, so who knows if we'll ever again have a reason to purchase a Hane's Beefy Tee with this beauty of a logo on it: But seriously, some projections have Oklahoma State vs. USC playing for the Cheez. After this giant curd of a season, it'd be pretty tasty to rattle off wins against Baylor and Oklahoma State, then get a Sun Bowl redux. And I'm dead serious about a t-shirt. I really, really want a reason to buy one. Go Frogs. Go to hell, Baylor.

    Casey was such a gamer. Sad we never got to see him reach his full potential. But I’ll always remember him for that day on the Smurf Turf and his resilience to bounce back from mistakes and become a man. (I’m 30 minutes early for #4 day, but I need to go to bed and wanted to make sure he was first.)

    Perspective that probably only those in the over 40 set will appreciate .... all three of the major men's sports went to the post-season and yet all three fell well short of expectations. There was a long period in TCUs history when ANY post season in ANY sport was a rare occasion to be celebrated. While we've fallen a bit from peak Frogs a few years ago, things are still pretty good.

    Not as many imminently achievable milestones heading into this year as in seasons past, but here is what I'm keeping an eye on at least in the early goings of 2018: KeVontae Turpin: Current career receptions: 116 -Needs 10 to pass Stanley Washington for #10 all-time -Needs 19 to pass Richard Woodley for #9 ...would need 66 to break Kelly Blackwell's school record Current career receiving yards: 1,338 -Needs 475 to pass Reggie Harrell for #10 all-time -Needs 774 to pass Corey Rodgers for #9 ...would need 1,447 to break Josh Doctson's school record Current career receiving TDs: 10 -Needs 2 to tie Jeremy Kerley and Phillip Epps for #10 all-time -Needs 3 to tie Jimmy Young, LaTerance Dunbar and Kelly Blackwell for #7 all-time ...would need 20 to break Josh Doctson's school record (FYI - Jalen Reagor's 8 receiving TDs last year put him right on Turpin's heels in this category) Ben Banogu: Current career sacks: 11.5 -Needs 6 to pass Mat Boesen for #9 all-time -Needs 7 to pass Roosevelt Collins and Josh Carraway to own #7 outright -Needs 10 to pass Chase Ortiz for #6 ...would need 20 to break Aaron Schobel's school record

    We will win 3 of the next 4 and make a bowl. The offense will get better every week under Collins and we are going to light some teams up starting with K State. The Wildcats are last or next to last in the Big 12 in virtually every defensive stat. K State is last in conference in total yards given up, total rushing yards given up, yds per rush, sacks made, tackles for loss, and 3rd down conversion %. They are last in conference in total yards given up, yards per play, total rushing yards given up, yds per rush, sacks made, tackles for loss, and 3rd down conversion %. They are second worst in the league in yds per play, red zone defense and long scrimmage plays given up. The comeback will start this weekend and be led by our offense. We will then beat the Bears soundly in Waco, lose on the road to WVU and beat OSU at home after our defense has had some time to adjust to all of the injuries we've suffered. We will go to either the Cheez It Bowl (FKA the Cactus Bowl) at Chase Field in PHX a or the old reliable Armed Forces Bowl in FTW. Cheez It would be against the Pac-12 #7 team and AF Bowl would be an AAC team.

    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

    1. It was a backward pass (the word lateral does not exist in the rule book, even though it is a term widely used) from his own end zone. 2. The clock does not stop until the pass touches something. Might have been lucky they left a second on the clock. 3. On the free kick, the clock doesn’t start until touched. It the TCU player had recovered the kick while on the ground, the clock wouldn’t have gone to zero and they could have attempted a field goal. It wasnt reviewed to see if his knee was on the ground, but I don’t think it was. I think it was stupid of Kansas to squib it in the first place.

    Any of this is debatle, of course, so I'd love to hear your takes. My rooting interests are outlined with the following criteria in mind: Strength of TCU's schedule Strength of Big 12 Elimination of Notre Dame and Pac-12 from CFP contention Decrease odds of two teams from SEC, Big Ten, or ACC making the CFP TCU's position within the CFP rankings TCU's position within the Big 12 standings That said, here's a look at Week 1 games that could matter in the long run: Michigan @ Notre Dame: Pull for Michigan, as Notre Dame's schedule is setting up softer than usual and they'll certainly make the CFP with only 1 loss. Notre Dame's schedule is tougher than most with tests from Stanford, @ Virginia Tech, Florida State, and @ USC. But all of those are winnable if they have a solid team. Meanwhile Michigan's season includes Wisconsin, @ Michigan State, Penn State, and @ Ohio State. I like their chances to lose 2-3 of those. Washington vs. Auburn (Atlanta): This one is tough. A Washington win almost certainly sets them up to make the CFP if they win the Pac-12. Auburn has to play @ Georgia and @ Alabama, but they're a real threat to be a 2nd SEC team even if they drop one of those. As much as it pains me to say, pull for Auburn because I have a strong feeling we could be looking at an end-of-season comparison of the Pac-12 and Big 12 champions for the 4th spot in the CFP. LSU vs. Miami (Arlington): This one is also tough. Miami's ACC schedule sets up nicely, as they'll only face Florida State and @ Virginia Tech. Meanwhile LSU draws Georgia from the East this season, plus the usual West challenges of Alabama and @ Auburn. In the end, pull for Miami in order to weaken the SEC narrative. Though this is the one I'm most torn about. Alabama vs. Louisville (Orlando): I believe they have 0% chance to win, but pull for Louisville because if Alabama doesn't win the SEC, the CFP will certainly find a way to justify them getting in as a 2nd SEC team given they just won the CFP under the same circumstance. Virginia Tech @ Florida State: Pull for Virginia Tech because Florida State is a contender to be a second ACC team if their only loss is a close one to Clemson and they have a late season win @ Notre Dame on their resume. San Diego State @ Stanford: Pull for San Diego State, as Stanford has a shot at winning the Pac-12 and a G5 loss on their resume could mean the Pac-12 is left out of the CFP. Oregon State @ Ohio State: Pull for Ohio State, chaos, and injuries. I'd love to see their young QB struggle, getting the fanbase anxious and perhaps have them rotating or trotting out someone new out come JerryWorld time. SMU @ North Texas: Pull for SMU to keep them from weighing down our SOS. Pull for Big 12 teams to win all of their OOC games, improve our strength of schedule, and prime the Big 12 CCG winner to get a CFP bid: Texas @ Maryland FAU @ Oklahoma South Dakota State @ Iowa State Texas Tech vs. Ole Miss (Houston) West Virginia vs. Tennessee (Charlotte)

    Well I must say today was a great day despite the Frog loss. @DirtyThirdFrog was kind enough to invite us to hang out at his tailgate before the game and had fun meeting him and his buddies on the bachelor party weekend. Such a nice guy. Got to see my old roommate @Endless Purple and sit with him during the game just like old times. First time I had seen him in 25 years and it was awesome! Also got to see another roommate, someone I've known since high school and a former employee who now works in Dallas. I also had tacos, Whataburger, and Risky's BBQ. I am officially exhausted. But what a couple of days!

    This year's season schedule has been released and a new school year has started, so that means it's time for a new TCU Tennis thread! Thanks to all who participate in this thread because it makes this forum and this thread the best place to follow Frog tennis news on the web. Last year was successful, but it would have been more successful if we had been able to beat the Fighting Illini - our new Nemesis - who we lost to in both the regular season and in the NCAA's in the Round of 16. But TCU did win its 3rd consecutive Big12 regular season championship and will be defending our back-to-back-to-back record this year. The season was especially impressive because we were Norrie-less, as Cam (the #1 rated player in 2017) departed to be a full-time pro and made the most impressive debut for any college player in the pros in decades by storming all the way to ATP #66 (a CH) in less than a year. We had also lost Jerry Lopez, a Davis Cupper for Mexico, who has been having success on the Futures tour. Cam, Jerry and Nick Chappell have now been joined on the pro tour by departing seniors Trevor Johnson and Guillermo Nunez, who got some clutch W's for the Frogs over the past 4 years. But we've got some talent coming back; including Alex Rybakov (who recently confirmed that he has more "work to do" in college), Alastair Gray (who will be returning from injury), Reese Stalder (who earned his first ever ATP points this summer), Bertus Kruger (also returning from an injury), Eduardo Roldan, Max Kurzban (who, with Rybo, won the ITA Summer Championships in doubles) and Alex McNeel. In addition, there might be Juan Martin as a wild card (who redshirted last year) and Sander Jong (an incoming freshman). And, we'll be watching Jenson Brooksby too, who is a recruit for 2019 and just won at Kalamazoo and made his U.S. Open debut. TCU is definitely a "tennis school" with lots of interesting things happening for former Frogs, current Frogs and future Frogs. This year, our first event will be the Atlantic Tire Championships in Cary, North Carolina between 9/8 and 9/15. (Boston Frog will be disappointed to hear that we are not going to Newport this year to play on the grass at the Hall of Fame like we've done for two years - his detailed in-person write-ups will always be remembered for their stellar quality and thorough comprehensiveness). Some of the team will also play at the Midland Invitational (9/14-9/16) like we did last year. Then, it's off to California for the Laguna Niguel Futures tourney from 9/15 to 9/23 for most of the team and then the Battle in the Bay Classic in San Francisco against some top west-coast teams like last year. Much of the team will then compete in the Los Cab Futures tourney in Fountain Valley between 9/22 and 9/30. The ITA All-American Championships in Tulsa will be from 9/29-10/7 - Rybo and Kurzban have already automatically qualified because of their ITA Summer Championship. But Rybo may miss that (like last year) because the Stockton ATP Challenger will be played simultaneously. From 10/6-10/14, the annual Houston Futures tourney will be played and many Frogs will compete there. But Rybo may be at the Fairfield Challenger that week instead of Houston. The ITA Texas Regionals will be in Waco on 10/19-10/22 and the Las Vegas Open will be the week after that (last year, Cam and Facundo hosted a bunch of Frogs). Futures tourneys in Waco and Birmingham and Challengers in Charlottesville and Knoxville follow and Futures tourneys in Niceville and Norman and Challengers in Champaign and Houston after that. They might be interrupted if anyone qualifies for the ITA Nationals between 11/8 and 11/11. Then, something called the "Hidden Duel" will be held in Cancun and the team will get a short Mexican trip for whatever that is. All in, a busy fall. But, perhaps, the Spring season is more important. The Frogs will open up 1/18 at Tulsa, and then will host Loyola Marymount at home on 1/26. Then, the ITA Kickoff will be at Ft. Worth and TCU will host either Oklahoma State or Arizona State (and will advance if we win). Then, home matches against Wichita State and Florida on 2/8 and 2/10 followed by the ITA Indoor Nationals in CHICAGO(!!!) if we win our regional (which we haven't the last two years (thanks to Utah State and San Diego)). Then, we're at Tulane and at USF on 2/24 and 2/26 and we'll next host Rice and, uh, Illinois on 3/2 and 3/3. We'll visit UTA in Arlington and Tennessee in Knoxville before returning home for a 5-match home stand against Pepperdine, Loyola Marymount, Columbia, Arizona State and SMU throughout March. Big 12 play then starts on 3/29 at Baylor, we then host Tech on 3/31, Texas on 4/6, A&M on 4/8 and we close out the regular season at OU on 4/12 and OSU on 4/14. The Big12 Championships will be in Kansas City starting 4/18 and the NCAA's, with the new regional super-regional and finals (at Lake Nona) following that if we qualify (we better!). It looks like a tough slate, with multiple ranked teams. We'll certainly miss TJ and Guillermo but we've still got some talent. Hopefully, we'll win the NCAA's.

    Jerry Lopez (o Gerardo Lopez Villasenor si prefiere espanol) won the first set in the finals in Cancun 6-1 over the Trojan and is looking good for his 2nd ever pro singles title. This tourney is a $15,000 ITF Futures tourney, so he wouldn't earn that much money, but at least it's not just a transition tourney. 2-1 in the 2nd set. 3-1. Up a break. 4-1! Jerry gets another break! (As Rafa beats Thiem at Roland Garros - Rafa's 12th French title). 5-1! After multiple deuces. 6-1! Jerry takes the title with a dominant 6-1, 6-1 W! He's worked his way up to an ATP #548 ranking and this should really help move him up further.

    Ok, so this is a bit of a vanity thread I guess, but it seems like it might be fun to share images of the trading cards I've collected over the past 9 years or so. There will be some names that will be obvious (for instance, LaDainian Tomlinson has nearly 7000 cards of his own) and there will be some that you may have to dig into the dusty files of your brain to remember. I'm going to try and post daily, but I can almost guarantee that won't be the norm. Additionally, I'll try and provide little tidbits of trivia about whatever card gets posted. My plan is to largely stick to cards featuring whatever sport is currently going, but with overlap and such, that might not be a definite thing. If you have a request, throw it out there. The only real rule about that is that it needs to be of someone that made it to the professional level in some capacity (minor league ball counts, AAF, independent leagues, foreign leagues, whatever). Hopefully this will be entertaining in some way for most of you. At any rate, it's my silly hobby and I'd just like to share it with somebody.

    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.

    On the morning of 10-27 Tech was looking good: 5-2, "#26" in the AP poll with wins over then #15 OSU and in-state rivals TCU and UH. Needed just one more win for bowl eligibility Meanwhile we were at our low- 3-5 at the end of that day after an upset loss to KU. Over the last five weeks, TT finished up 0-5 and missed out on a bowl and their coach loses his job. Over our last four weeks we went 3-1 and sneaked into a bowl and now have some momentum heading into next season. What a difference a month makes.

    That is disappointing. I sent a raven to the Citadel to get his QHS stats, and Archmaester Ch'Vyalthan replied that although he wouldn't go so far as to say Atanza was "the prince who was promised" or that R+L=AV, that he thought AV was probably the "greatest safety that ever was or will be."

Anyone there that day remembers this game for one thing - the bags of Tostito's chips the Fiesta Bowl committee had placed in every seat of the stadium, being tossed around after every big play for the Frogs. It was Gary Patterson's 26th career win.
