  1. Paul Gonzales has been named to the American Football Coaches Association 35 under 35 list. He will be able to participate in a one-day training program with the other outstanding young coaches on the list. https://www.afca.com/afca-announced-2020-35-under-35-participants/
  2. Sewo Olonilua will play in the National Football League Players Association's all star game next month.
  3. The Scoop reports Jeff Tedford is stepping down at Fresno State due to health issues.
  4. I never met Wes outside of the internet, but he seemed like a really good guy. Fair and honest. His operation of KFC was a great boon to Frog fans until better forums came forth. His passing is sad news.
  5. Jonathan Song, Ross Blackrock, Jeff Gladney, Trevon Moehrig and Garrett Wallow first team all conference. https://big12sports.com/news/2019/12/4/2019-all-big-12-football-awards-announced.aspx
  6. WR recruit Danny Gray was first team all conference, after 877 yards on 54 catches in 9 games for Blinn JC.
  7. I don't think Cole Bunce was introduced with the seniors Saturday. He should have a redshirt season to use, if he did not play in more than 4 games this year. He could be back to compete with Griffin Kell for the kicking job.
  8. More common sense, this from Dr. Judith Curry on the eve of yet another international climate conference: https://judithcurry.com/2019/12/02/madrid/#more-25458
  9. I'd say first thing is Coach Patterson needs to have his medical and training staffs conduct a thorough review of all injuries the past two years to determine if there was any way of preventing them. We may need changes to the training regimen or the practice drills, but we will never have a successful season if half the team is crippled in August. Not just Cumbie, none of the offensive coaches produced much this season. Don't think Reagor has ever considered being more than a three-year college player. I'm sure Blacklock will ask for the NFL evaluation. My guess is he will be projected 3rd-4th round and he will come back, but who knows. No question immediate help is needed on the offensive line. Maybe cornerback if some injured guys don't recover, maybe defensive end but I think Mathis and Ellison should be pretty good next year. Maybe outside receiver if we don't get any more out of Barkley and Hunt than this year.
  10. Bad coaching and bad playing, all around pathetic. Everyone needs to be replaced except Barber, Duggan and Wells. Coaches better hit tha junior colleges for immediate help.
  11. I suspect Duggan was told not to run so he wouldn’t gat hurt when we don’t have anyone to replace him.
  12. A rare dose of common sense. Green activist/writer says we're not all gonna die: https://www.forbes.com/sites/michaelshellenberger/2019/11/25/why-everything-they-say-about-climate-change-is-wrong/#59105e8412d6
  13. I'm pretty sure that's true because I think it's possible to come back from the transfer portal if they change their mind. But most of them will want to sign fairly quickly so they can do spring training with their new team, so the ships should be open before the second signing day in February.. And, our coaches are probably going to want to save a couple of scholarships for transfers in the spring or summer anyway.
  14. Lamar has fired Mike Schultz, one year after he took them to the FCS playoff for the first time: https://www.beaumontenterprise.com/sports/hs/article/Mike-Schultz-fired-as-Lamar-University-football-14862095.php He has some other Frogs on his staff, Kevin Brown, Adrian Madise and Eric Buchanan.
  15. Love it that TCU is finally getting a top OL class. IMO the OL has been consistently starved in recruiting and that has held back the program. Next year's line is going to have to be patched together and we could really use another JUCO or graduate who can play right away. But in 2-3 years (upper class years for Barlow, Foster and Duggan) we should be able to match the top power schools up front.
  16. No surprise Collins is leaving. I expect him to go back to Penn for an MBA from Wharton. Too bad injuries prevented him from really getting established here, but I think he is going to have a very successful life. I hope Baldwin will stay as a backup to Duggan.
  17. It's a nailbiter every week. Doggy appears to be a good passer, but not as good a runner as all the other Big 12 teams have. That's very much to our advantage. If the Frogs don't give the ball away we should win.
  18. I would really rather not have West Virginia going for a bowl game with a two-game winning streak next week.
  19. An article every recruit thinking of Austin should read: https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/ncaafb/coaching-was-the-difference-in-texas’-loss-to-iowa-state/ar-BBX0QrE
  20. Thomas Armstrong hasn't played due to injury. They have been using his number 29 when someone has to change numbers to avoid duplicating another player's number, usually on special teams.
  21. Exactly. Most teams will start Aug. 30 but we don't open until Sept. 5. Only one bye during the rest of the season.
  22. How embarrassing for the people who have been trashing Song on various internet forums for the past three years.
  23. I watched the Tech game video last night, and I think our offensive line had its best game since Purdue. Tech was blitzing all day but usually they only got through by bringing more rushers than we had blockers. And the running backs had some creases to use. Quazzell White played right guard and did well. Coach Patterson said yesterday he thinks Austin Myers will be back for OU. Andy Coker played the fourth quarter at right tackle, he did well except for a foolish holding penalty when the play was going the other way. Don't know if David Bolisomi was hurt or what. The defensive line also was improved, but had trouble tackling the QB when they got to him. That could be big trouble this week. Colt Ellison seems to be an upgrade at defensive end.
  24. Not looking for a big crowd for WVU, but it's not an a.m. game. Kickoff now set at 3:15.
