    TGBDS: Epic Randomness

    Some here may remember on the old cusa killerfrogs board a poster named Wilkie01. Louisville fan who would often get into it with Southern Miss fans, especially one named eagle in yune, as i recall. He apparently has passed away: https://csnbbs.com/thread-868616.html

    Delton really helps with developing the 2019 playbook this spring. You can keep things simple for Duggan while at the same time expanding the QB packages with the plays more tailored to Delton. Also will help the defense play against a mobile QB with experience.

    OK, with the 8 man rotation, is it better to have Noi starting or Nembhard? Nembhard starting- better defense, Noi scoring punch off the bench. Noi starting- best offensive five on the court to start, but no one to come off the bench that is a scoring threat. Minutes split ROS: Robinson, Bane- 35 minutes/game Miller- 30 minutes Samuel, Noi- 25 minutes Nembhard- 20 minutes Davis, Mayen- 15 minutes/game That's doable and should be productive. No room for injuries.

    https://www.star-telegram.com/sports/college/big-12/texas-christian-university/article224678135.html Doesn;t sound like hard feelings or anythinga nd some good quotes. Dixon says we have an 8 man rotation. I was super impressed by Mayen and in my minds he has gone from an afterthought to big upside guy in one game. 6-9" with three point ability. Tat'll work So the 8 man rotation is 2 seniors, 1 junior, two soph and 3 redshirt freshmen and one true frosh.

    Now I'm going to be real excited if/when he makes it here!

    I don't think Delton will be a savior but he definitely makes this team better. More QB depth/ competition; skillset that could be used in specific packages; experience in the Big 12 and leadership qualities all help the team. Had to get someone in by Friday so they could practice and with Hurts and the Buffalo QB looking at other options had to pull the trigger on someone who makes the team better and Delton definitely does that.

    I wanted Hurts of course, but after him, no one really excited me and I was always impressed with Delton's competitive spirit. He gives some depth and a change of pace option from Collins. Preparing for Collins and Delton could be difficult. And with Rodgers leaping over a tall building in a single bound and Duggan in the on deck circle, there is some potential for improved QB play one way or another. I do think this means they feel a lot better about Rodgers. I think if they thought he was out of the picture they would have gone for a pure passer.

    Why did he leave, again?
  11. https://ca.sports.yahoo.com/news/northwestern-fan-emily-harriott-shrieker-stay-quiet-basketball-games-221523084.html article about a Northwestern fan who has been asked to stop shrieking loudly at games. This paragraph stood out: Noisy, obnoxious fans are nothing new to college athletics. Mississippi State fans ring cowbells. TCU has fans who call themselves “Woo Birds” after Ric Flair’s iconic yell. But it’s fairly rare for a school to specifically call out a single fan.

    http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/25727847/jalen-hurts-transfer-where-alabama-qb-wind-up TCU Horned Frogs Why it makes sense for TCU: It wasn't long ago that TCU appeared to be overflowing in QB riches. But blue-chip commitment Justin Rogers tore up his leg during his senior year of high school, then 2018 Week 1 starter Shawn Robinson transferred in midseason. Rogers is still working his way back from drop-foot condition after redshirting last year, leaving the Horned Frogs otherwise with incoming freshman Max Duggan and former Ivy League transfer Mike Collins, who himself is coming back from injury, as the only other options. The Horned Frogs are good enough elsewhere to contend in the Big 12. With Hurts at quarterback, they could be serious challengers to Oklahoma and Texas in the conference title race. -- Trotter Why it makes sense for Hurts: Having grown up in Houston, this would make a lot of sense. He could get closer to home and enter a program he has a lot of familiarity with. It's safe to say TCU coach Gary Patterson and Hurts' father, a high school coach in the state, are acquainted from the recruiting trail. But it's the opportunity to start with Robinson gone, coupled with the style of offense TCU runs, that really gives the Horned Frogs a shot. They've had success with dual-threat quarterbacks before, and they aren't afraid to throw the ball downfield, which is something Hurts must show to NFL scouts. The only question is how Hurts would view the roster strength and the opportunity to be in contention in the Big 12. -- Scarborough

    Nemhard a positive but also turned the ball over too many times. Robinson was tired and frustrated. Samuel is very impressive. Noi has taken a step back. Tough matchup with no zone defense to employ. Syracuse D would shut down the Jayhawks.

    KU is playing awesome D on us. Would be nice having Fisher in this game to take the pressure off Robinson.

    That's the problem- that extra 1 is too much weight on his knee.

    Saw that. Right or wrong, the idea of him coming to TCU will make me significantly more optimistic about next season.

    Cheez-It Bowl ~ Frogs vs Cal ~ Wednesday Dec 26, 2018 8:00pm CT Phoenix, AZ

    Looking at his feed, it now just hit me that he was the one that got to (I hesitate to say "ran down") Johnson.

    The highlights were nice, but everytime I see the OL flop loop I watch it over and over laughing.

    Dixon seems to have confidence in Rembhard. Career has started slow but he had a good game last game and could be a blessing in disguise having Fisher out if he gets some confidence and a rhythm to his game.

    Well Saban is happy. Someone else had a worse night this week.

    Doesn't sound too promising that Fisher will be back soon: https://sportsday.dallasnews.com/college-sports/collegesports/2019/01/07/knee-issues-persist-jaylen-fisher-tcu-gears-top-25-dogfight-kansas Dixon said Monday that Fisher endured "significant swelling" in his right knee upon the team's return from the Diamond Head Classic in late December -- swelling that has not gone down through the first week of January. Fisher was forced to miss the Horned Frogs' Big 12 opener vs. Baylor on Saturday, a game which TCU won 85-81. "We took a couple days off [after the tournament] and then there was swelling the next day and then after the break the swelling had not gone down," Dixon said, "When I say 'significant swelling' it’s similar to what he had, but it hasn’t gone down now in a longer period of time. "We’re now at about 11 days since that previous game so that’s where we’re at now. But we knew it would be something that was coming and going."

    What books are you reading?

    This book was the selection for one book, one Nebraska this year. I haven't read it, but it chronicles a several generation family farm in York county as they navigate 21st century farming and the issues they face. The book has won several other awards. The governor each year will sign a proclamation with a ceremony acknowledging the selection. Pete Ricketts in Nebraska refused to sign this one because the author is a "political activist". I don't think the book itself is too controversial, but the author has been critical of Ricketts (and Trump) on social media. He also writes for Mother Jones sometimes. I have two minds. One is that the Governor should be able to pick and choose what books he endorses/ proclaims/ attaches his name to. On the other hand, I don't like the precedent that if you criticize the Governor, you might not get an award/acknowledgment or get an award stripped. We don't want to stifle people's opinions or have a political litmus test for awards and recognitions.
