    RIP Gunner

    According to posts on other boards, the Frog fan known online as Gunner or Purple Pain has passed away. He has been a fixture of the online Frog community for decades, and he will be missed.

    Oklahoma still has a ton of talent and I think they have to be the odds-on favorite. As to who they play in the championship game, West Virginia is a good choice if their quarterback stays healthy. No other team depends so much on one guy, if he is hurt they could fall a long way. TCU looks like the next best team, then there are four teams all bunched in the middle. Texas is always great in preseason, but they have to win some games before I believe in them.
  3. The lineup is looking a lot better than it did a month ago. Returning we have Josh Watson and Johnny Rizer in the outfield; Conner Shepherd, Adam Oviedo and Coby Boulware in the infield; and Zach Humphreys at catcher. We need another outfielder, a first baseman and a designated hitter. The prospects: Jordan Parker, see immediately above Colton Parrish, senior backup catcher who is hitting .286 in summer ball Nicholas Juaire, freshman catcher from Minnesota who hit .500 with 6 home runs. He could learn first base, DH, or if he is good enough defensively, could move Humphreys Porter Brown, outfielder from San Antonio Reagan, all state and Perfect Game Under 17 All Tournament. Good speed. Bryson Jackson, the freshman football receiver who wants to play both sports. Also good speed. Redshirt freshmen Brad Ski and R.J. Lan. I expect the coaches will try to sort out the three best hitters from this list, see if one can learn to play first, another goes to the outfield and the third is DH. Oh, and we should have at least a dozen first-rate pitchers.

    The continuing saga of Baylor Athletics

    So explain this to me: Guy is a starting lineman on Clemson's national championship team and then decides to transfer to … Baylor? https://baylorbears.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=912
  6. That JUCO running back is going to be pretty good.

    Amazing that Baker is playing already. I really thought that injury would have him out of action for a year.
  9. Kyle Winkler is returning to finish his TCU degree and will be a student coach this year. http://www.gofrogs.com/sports/m-basebl/spec-rel/071218aaa.html
  10. Dave Campbell's Texas Football has Daimarqua Foster as the Class 4A coverboy. 3,270 yards rushing and 46 touchdowns last year. The Decatur coach is quoted: "In 25 years, I can't think of a running back that I've coached against that I could say, hands down, is better than him. I can think of a bunch that are great. Maybe they're bigger, maybe they're faster, maybe they have a different combination of skills. But none that are better."

    I'm going to project Mckinney and Niang starting at tackle, with Myers backing up both sides. Iwuagwu starts at left guard, Hollins at center, right guard will be either Elliott or Wes Harris, with the other backing up both guards and center. That's seven players I think we can rely on. After that, someone is going to have to step up. Right now no one is apparent, but I would be most hopeful of McDermott Vai or Bolisomi. Toby Lettman, the big walkon from England, is no longer on the roster. If we have more than a couple of injuries, we're screwed. Fortunately, we have a good freshman class, but you don't want to be playing true freshmen on the offensive line.

    I doubt we see Flowers at cornerback after a four-year layoff. But with his speed he might help on kick returns or maybe as a gunner on coverage. He'll have to be on football scholarship, which means one must have opened up.

    It may have been posted before, but I came across this highlight tape of Jawuan Johnson: https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=Northern+Illinois+linebacker+highlights&view=detail&mid=D5BEAB178BE5FD7C1C56D5BEAB178BE5FD7C1C56&FORM=VIRE

    At this point it would not surprise me at all to see Watson come back.. He was drafted really late and could improve his position with a good year. I was surprised by Janczak, because I think he already has his degree.
