    Current Frogs in Summer Baseball

    I believe most of these leagues have wrapped up for the summer. I'll get around to a full recap of our guys, but I did just see that Zach Humphrey's was awarded the "Platinum Glove" award for catchers in the Cape Cod League for his defensive work behind the plate. Considering the level of competition in that league, this is a great honor for Zach!
  3. I was living in an apartment building in Dallas at the time. I ran out my front door, screaming down the hallway and ran into some fellow TCU grads (that I didn't know) who were doing the same thing.

    Why Cole Novak didn't play last year

    Sixth Street is worse than the last time you went there. I know, I know...

    FROGS in the NFL 2018

    I concur that Texada is the real deal, but point of clarification - he redshirted in 2013, his first year on campus
  7. What a great photo, and what a great day in the history of TCU football. Those that weren't there just wouldn't understand the raw energy in the stadium that night. Beyond Ryan Christian, a few other memorable Frog 18s: Quentily Harmon Nick Orr Preston Morrison Sammy Baugh threw 18 TD passes while leading the Frogs to the 1935 national title. ...and a bonus 18: "Everyday Eddie" Guardado

    Too early to start a 2018 Football thread?

    I've seen several outlets reporting this information recently. Are they aware we start three safeties? Or is GP just being very coy about the weak safety spot?
  10. A few memorable Frog 19s: Matt Schobel Michael DePriest Patrick Batteaux Frank Horak Luken Baker Davey O'Brien threw for 19 touchdown passes in 1938 on his way to winning the Heisman Trophy and leading the Frogs to a national title ...and a bonus 19:
  11. A few memorable Frog 20s: Deante Gray Nick Sanders Jack Spikes Greg Walls Dennis Nutt Preston Guillory Chase Ortiz sacked Case Keenum late in the 4th quarter of the 2007 Texas Bowl, helping stop a Houston drive that threatened the Frogs' narrow lead. This was the last of his 20.5 career sacks at TCU.

    I'm still trying to figure out what our depth chart looks like at safety. With the news that Onyemaobi is spending more time at CB, is Moerhig stepping into the #2 spot behind Niko Small at FS? If I'm understanding the various reports correctly, it sounds like Gaines is the starter at SS, with Issahaku and Van Zandt behind him. ...which brings us to WS. With no mention of Markell Simmons at FS, has he moved over to WS? Is Vernon Scott in the mix there?
  16. A few memorable Frog 22s: Aaron Green. "ARE YOU KIDDIN' ME?!?!" Darrell Lester I.B. Hale Logo Tevaseu Chudi Chinweze ("Chinweze Fo-Sheezy!") LT scored a TCU record 22 rushing touchdowns his senior year. ...and a bonus 22: I know there'd already been an Emmitt post this morning. But really, is one post enough for a Hall of Famer that won three championships, an MVP, a Super Bowl MVP, Rookie of the Year, was selected All-Pro 5 times, selected to the Pro Bowl 8 times, led the league in rushing and rushing touchdowns 4 times apiece and has rushed for the more yards and touchdowns than anyone else who has ever played in the NFL? Nah - in fact, here's a few more:
  17. It was great to see the Frogs on the cover - but like most years they've done so (other than 2012), they got scared of the sales numbers that would've come from a TCU-only cover. It shoulda been GP with Bo Schobel that year. 2019, though. That might be our year again.

    I feel really good about the tackle spots. Between Niang, Myers and McKinney, it sounds like we've got three starting-caliber guys. Iwuagwu is, I believe, pretty underrated and should be solid at LG. C and RG are the mystery spots. It sounds like Hollins may be the guy at C - he's young and inexperienced. Seems like I keep hearing different things about RG - Elliott, McDermott Vai, Wes Harris, Chris Gaynor. I lump OL in with QB - we really won't know what we've got until we see them in action. I find it interesting that some seem to equate an unknown at TCU with a weakness. I think we've earned more of the benefit of doubt than that.

    Roster Updates - 2018

    Yeah, but I usually have a lot of patience with the guys we bring in as athletes. And, to be fair, the amount of information coming out of practice is pretty small. Who knows, he could be killing it!

    Roster Updates - 2018

    True - but Quentily Harmon and Skye Dawson both started with #'s in the 30s before becoming major contributors in the teens. Maybe Nijeel Meeking will follow suit!

    Roster Updates - 2018

    Not sure this even warrants a post - but Ryan McGee, the walk-on safety who had switched from #33 to #34...has switched back to #33.
  23. While Swink is still the apex 23, there have been quite a few memorable ones through the years: Marvin Godbolt on one of the worst covers DCTF has ever had Aaron Brown Mike Lutrell BJ Catalon Alex Young Jamie Dixon Kenneth Davis, seen here with Jim Wacker on one of the best covers DCTF ever had, ended his TCU career with 23 rushing touchdowns - before going on to wear #23 for the Buffalo Bills ...and a bonus 23:
  24. That was one of my favorite all-time TCU games to have attended. Such a gritty, hard-fought win over an extremely tough opponent. Will never regret my last-minute decision to fly out for it. Beyond Turner, a few other memorable Frog 24s: Darrell Browder Mike Jones Josh Elander Mike Settle Trevorris Johnson Greg McCoy races to a 99-yard kickoff return touchdown as part of TCU's 56-9 dismantling of UNLV at home in November of 2011. This was TCU's final game as members of the Mountain West, and their 24th consecutive conference victory on their way out the door with their 3rd straight conference title. ...and one bonus 24 that keeps it with the Frogs!
