  1. Roster change

    Jason Phillips is no longer listed on the football staff.
  2. TCU 2017-2018 Basketball

  3. The Worldwide Leader is BACK!!!!!!

    Has anyone mentioned that Rice has a no hitter? Just thought we should get that out there.
  4. Too early to start a 2018 Football thread?

    The thing I noticed most about Robinson in the Tech game is he carries the ball away from his body and is easily stripped of it. He's going to have to work on that.
  5. I'm hopeful that this is positive. I'm looking for fewer blocking penalties on returns, and maybe at least some effort to block kicks. http://www.star-telegram.com/sports/college/big-12/texas-christian-university/article203029374.html
  6. More fair catches on kickoffs, fewer blocks below waist, more chances for delay of game penalties: https://www.ncaa.com/news/football/article/2018-03-02/college-football-change-kickoff-rule-recommended
  7. The Coaching Carousel Thread

    That million makes CDC's departure a little less painful.

    According to The Scoop: Texas has signed Chris Del Conte to a 7-year contract that will pay him $1.3 million this year and rise to #1.57 million by the final year of the contract, with a $400,000 retention bonus in 2024. Texas will send TCU $1 million to buy out Del Conte's contract with the Frogs.
  9. Majority of college students now are female. Many young people would rather watch the game on their mobile device while on a chat site than sit with flesh-and-blood friends at the stadium. Middle class families being priced out of the market. I think TCU does a really good job with game day presentation, and the stadium experience is about as good as it can be. I'll go to the games as long as I can walk and climb steps, which may not be much longer.

    I think your analysis of the line is spot on, Angelo. A lot of work to be done this spring to find out who the best five are, and at least three backups. I think the raw material is there, but they may not be good until the latter part of the season. Same at quarterback, I expect some growing pains early but Robinson should be very good after a season of experience. Big question is what do we do if he gets hurt and Rogers doesn't heal completely for this season. If Collins doesn't show enough this spring, a number of graduate transfers are available. Whether we work out the problems on offense or not, the 2018 defense should be something to see.
  11. The Coaching Carousel Thread

    New Mexico has suspended their head coach for 30 days, evidently because they could not find any evidence he had covered up sex crimes by players. http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/22377565/new-mexico-suspends-bob-davie-cites-misconduct-found-investigation
  12. Signing Day thread

    One name I have not seen today is Tony St. Julien. Was considered by some to be the best running back in Louisiana, and reportedly it was between TCU and Mississippi State, with Arkansas making a late push. Can't find any news about him. Possibly he will go JUCO, I guess.

    The Scoop reports TCU has hired a new defensive analyst, Brian Hernandez of Mountain Pointe High School in Arizona. From the high school's website: Coach Hernandez returns to the Pride after spending the past two years as OC at Pima Community College. In 2013 he was WRs and CBs Coach for the State Champion Pride. Coach Hernandez played football at Mountain Pointe for Karl Kiefer and graduated in 2002. He then played football at the University of Utah. After Utah, Brian’s playing career continued through 2012 when he was injured playing for the Philadelphia Eagles. http://utahutes.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=2952
  14. Linebacker Jacoby Simpson has commited to TCU! 6-1, 225 3-star from Houston Lamar. Fills a big need with four senior linebackers. https://twitter.com/thejacoby47?lang=en http://www.hudl.com/profile/4473636/Jacoby-Simpson
  15. The Coaching Carousel Thread

    Diehards is reporting that Jeremy Modkins will be TCU's 10th assistant coach and will work with cornerbacks. ???? What about Jason Phillips, who has been stuck as a grad assistant? And what will Gonzales do? https://www.diehards.com/tcu/report-jeremy-modkins-promoted-tcus-10th-assistant-slot
