    I watched a bit of the Houston vs. LA game.  It was pretty entertaining and I though both QB's looked pretty good.  The WR's were making some plays too.  PJ Walker the Houston QB and Nick Holley his WR out of Kent State connected on some great plays.  Nick Holley has a little bit of Edelman in him and Walker looked like he can play in the NFL. 


    PJ walker had another great game on Sunday. Pretty sure he spent time in the Colts camp. I remember him at Temple, hell of an Athlete.

    One thing this thread has reminded me about is that I shouldn't ever go to game in Waco again.  We've lost the two I've been to.  2011 in the RGIII game where Casey made his first start and led a comeback that fell just short and then the 61-58 game.  Both games were entertaining as hell but the drive home afterward pretty much sucked.  One thing I can tell you though is that Frog fans were incredibly loud at both games.  Other than the Alamo Bowl comeback against Oregon, I have never seen TCU fans as manic as they were at those games.  It was incredible. 


    I was at both of those games as well. The 2006 game too (which was fun). 
     

    The 2011 game I wasn’t as upset. I think we were all still a little hungover from the Rose bowl and had a lot of new faces. RGMe played his face off and I remember thinking “well Baylor just wanted it a little more”. 
     

    the 2014 game. Ugh. There isn’t much that hasn’t been said. Gut punch. But I agree. Frog fans were LOUD. Took a buddy of mine who wasn’t a frog fan just liked football and he still hates Baylor because of that game.

    Thanks, I didn't pay much attention to the announcers in either game, and had Seattle/DC completely muted early so that I could catch the TCU radio wrap up and CJD post game interview.

     

    My gut feeling was that San Antonio filled the Alamodome with more people for AAF than Houston put in the seats at Cougar High. I appreciate you digging up the numbers to confirm that.

     

    As I suspected, the XFL likely won't hold my interest. It is more entertaining to me than the NFL, but it is not close to the AAF's level, and light years away from NCAA.


    I don’t think attendance matters as much as eyeballs on the TV. It might be lean for a few years. Hence why McMahon being so well capitalized makes the difference. 
     

    The USFL in the 80s was very viable until Trump and a few other owners got too big for their britches and tried to make the season in the fall.

    I am not claiming tit for tat. They are all guilty in my eyes. I want to end the state. Just pointing out glass houses. Rush is AM radio BTW, not FM.

     

    All Tyrant's should be hanged. All politicians are Tyrants. So in my estimation all politicians should be hanged. Every, last, one of them. Except mayyyybe Rand Paul. Maybe.

    He appeared to have no answer last night. That was concerning body language to me, but I am still a good distance back from the ledge... for now. I feel he is a great coach and he can still turn it around, but not so sure that it can be done this year.

     

    At the halfway point in conference play, we are still well ahead of our preseason projection (last place in B12). I think our early conference wins gave me more hope and artificially inflated my expectations for this year.

     

    Now we seem to be regressing towards the mean and where we should be. It makes for a hard pill to swallow and requires reassessing what my expectations for this season should be.

     

    I will continue to watch, follow and cheer them on, but I am going to have to adjust my personal expectations to no wins for any game left on the schedule, just to save myself further heartbreak. And if we do manage to pull a win somewhere down the line, it will make it feel even better.

     

    I agree, I just feel like "projected last" in the big 12 in his 4th season is concerning to begin with. We can  blame talent, etc. But all of this coupled with the UCLA crap from the off season.  Does he really want to be here? I was going back and looking at his coaching record. He hasn't won more than 1 game in the NCAA tourney in over 10 years... Maybe we're overrating him a bit?

    I'm going to be really interested to see what attendance is like across the league.  As I recall, several of the AAF teams last year had trouble drawing decent crowds.  I'll probably make it out to a game at The Temple, if only just to see it configured for football.  I'll definitely watch games on TV.

     

    I really do think that McMahon learned from his mistakes 20 years ago. From all accounts he is well capitalized and they have good coaches in place.

    Well, heck, I was way off.

     

    Rhule made $4.1 million this season as Baylor's coach. The Panthers paid a $6 million buyout to hire their new head coach, league sources told Schefter.

    Well I think Baylor gets that money.

     

    The coach gets that money when they get fired.

    Incoming grad transfer QB:  Logan Burnett from Mississippi State.

     

    Originally from Pelham, AL, he was a walk-on at MSU and played in 5 games in his time in Starkville - though none of it was significant playing time.  So he's not being brought in to compete for the starting job, but rather add some seniority and depth to the QB room.

     

    According to his tweet, he'll be pursuing an MBA at TCU.

    Uh oh.

    So with Luper's departure to become OC at Missouri and Chris Thomsen leaving to become assistant head coach/OL coach at Florida State, we now have two openings on our offensive staff.

     

    Anyone in particular on your wish list?

     

    I'd like to see another Malcolm Kelly type come coach RB's... A young guy who had D1 playing experience and can recruit.

     

    As far as O-Line. Anyone not named Anderson.
