  1. I'm more interested in finding a solution than blaming someone. Our training and medical staffs should do a review of every injury suffered this past season, to determine if there was any way the injury could have been prevented. Maybe the answer is no, it's just bad luck, but this still would be a worthwhile exercise. Starting with baseball last year, our teams have been ruined by injuries.
  2. Glad to see Sewo is healthy. I'm beginning to think our team could have a heck of a running game.
  3. I'm pretty sure he has gone to the Field of Dreams. Frank and Brooks won a lot of games for the Orioles.
  4. It looks like we have 88 signed or on board, three over the 85 scholarship limit. Yet Patterson said at his signing day press conference we will not be up to 85 until next December. So there must be more than three currently on the roster who are leaving.
  5. Gladys Knight was good. Liked the Google ad paying tribute to veterans. Cannon played and didn't give up any sacks as far as I could see.
  6. I just received a mailer from the TCU Alumni Association, with information about their bus and train trip through the Canadian Rockies from Calgary to Vancouver. Looks like a nice vacation, if somewhat expensive. The kicker -- the trip is Sept. 22-28, covering two home football games. What were they thinking?
  7. It's Nebraska or TCU for LB Dylan Jordan. He says he'll announce today. https://www.omaha.com/huskers/football/recruiting/nebraska-tcu-make-final-two-for-olb-dylan-jordan-who/article_9885c780-07d8-525a-8607-c9ec8bd18e4e.html
  8. Thanks. I haven't been able to spot Collier or Banogu in the first half.
  9. Thanks for starting this up, Lyle. Just for fun, I noticed 247 has a list of the highest-rated recruits TCU has ever signed (at least since they started doing their ratings): 1. Tyson Thompson, 2000 5 stars (JUCO, then San Jose State) 2. Justin Rogers, 2018 4 stars (jury still out) 3. Ladarius Brown, 2011 4 stars (transfer) 4. Jalen Reagor, 2017 4 stars (superstar) 5. Devonte Fields, 2012 4 stars (transfer) 6. Sewo Olonilua, 2016 4 stars (star) 7. Isaiah Chambers, 2016 4 stars (transfer) 8. Omar Manning, 2017 4 stars (transfer) 9. Brandon Bowen, 2016 (jury still out) Kind of reinforces my belief that starsies don't mean anything.
  10. A couple of other articles about Blackshear's issues. He's seems to be a guy in need of, and really wanting, a fresh start: https://www.postandcourier.com/sports/south-carolina-s-shameik-blackshear-back-on-track-after-football/article_651785e8-2d1c-11e8-a195-67bddc050352.html https://southcarolina.rivals.com/news/after-being-saved-by-god-blackshear-ready-to-live-up-to-expectations
  11. Whoop! This is the number one guy I wanted in this class. If healthy, he should restore the pass rush we have become accustomed to, and could make a difference of two or three additional wins next season. Has had some off-field issues, but multiple sources have indicated he has turned his life around and really dedicated himself for the last couple of years.
  12. An article about Matthew Downing. Sounds like he will be a good guy to have on the team, even if he never plays a down: https://www.redandblack.com/gameday/matthew-downing-s-journey-to-becoming-georgia-s-third-string/article_c3aa9858-abce-11e8-b462-2f7025d0dca6.html
  13. Delton was academic all big 12, and a KSU team captain. Should bring some Frog Factor, at least.
  14. Welcome, Alex. If you can show you are better than what we have, I look forward to cheering for you in the fall. Still think the critical need is for an experienced defensive end.
