    I would love to see TCU schedule a game with Appalachian State.  They are a very good game and a good win against them would be a plus.


    I know App State's been putting good teams on the field for a while now - and I'd enjoy watching us play them - but perception wise, I don't think a win over them would move the needle for us in the eyes of the pollsters.    

  2. I don't think that going from playing a UAPB/Grambling to a UNT/Middle Tennessee would make any difference in regard to SOS or pollster perception.  We either go undefeated or we don't.  Maaaaybe playing all road games against Michigans/UCLAs would buy us some slack if we finished 11-1, but I doubt it.

  3. Our current 11:



    Dylan Thomas


    A few memorable 11s:



    Max Knake



    Ranthony Texada



    Skye Dawson



    Marcus Jackson



    Drew Coleman



    Sonny Gibbs



    Brandon Parrish



    November 12, 2011: Josh Boyce snatches a would-be interception to score the game-winning two-point conversion on the Smurf Turf


    ...and a few bonus 11s:



    Danny White



    JJ Barea in his first run with the Mavs



    Bengie Molina

    Nothing about that in this release. It does say they are playing Steve Trout-coached Texas State the day after the Texas football game. Figure I can stay over to see that.


    Weird - I swear it was in there earlier.  Maybe they had to pull it from the release for some reason?  

  5. Our current 12s:



    Jeff Gladney 



    Derius Davis


    A few memorable 12s:



    Leon Clay



    Chad Huffman (baseball mode)



    Kouat Noi



    Taylor Featherston



    Riley Ferrell



    Nick Lodolo



    November 3, 2012: Josh Boyce snags a two-point conversion pass juuuuuust before it hits the turf to pull out a double-OT win in Morgantown


    ...and a few bonus 12s:



    Roger Staubach



    Derek Harper






    What do Faksa?

  6. -Arrieta's battle against the bone spur in his elbow is now over - he's set to have season-ending surgery later this month.  His 2019 ends with at 8-8 with a 4.66 ERA.  If you're wondering, Jake will turn 34 next March and has three years left on his deal with the Phils at $20 million per.  


    -Stefan Crichton was called back up by the Diamondbacks - he gave up a run in 2 IP against the Giants on Thursday, and is now sporting a 3.88 in 18.2 total IP across his several stints in the Bigs this year.


    -Tyler Alexander, on the other hand, was sent back down to Triple-A Toledo by the Tigers after going 0-3 with a 6.59 ERA in five Big League starts.


    -Cashner, at least for now, has transitioned into a bullpen role for the Red Sox.  He earned his first career save earlier this week against Cleveland, and is now 10-7 with a 4.76 ERA for the year.


    -Carpenter is currently mired in a 1-for-17 slump for the Cardinals, who hold a half-game lead over the Cubs in the NL Central.  He's now hitting .214 for the year with 10 HR, 32 RBI and a .681 OPS.


    -Alex Young has now taken an L in his last three starts for the D'Backs.  He's now 4-3 and has seen his ERA quickly jump from 2.51 to 3.98.  His next scheduled start is Tuesday night against the Rockies.


    -Holaday went 0-2 against the Rockies on Friday, which dipped his season average down to .298

  7. -Kevin Cron has 6 HR in his last 10 games for Triple-A Reno (D'Backs), including a three-HR game earlier this week.  For the year, he's hitting .327 with 38 HR, 98 RBI and a 1.273 OPS in 71 total games in the minors.  My guess is he'll be a September call-up to end the year with the big club and start 2020 as a full-time Big Leaguer.


    -Taylor Featherston has been promoted to Triple-A Omaha by the Royals' organization


    -Brian Howard, after three rough starts at Triple-A Las Vegas, has been sent back down to Double-A Midland by the A's organization


    -Brandon Finnegan is now 1-0 with a 5.25 ERA through 9 relief appearances for Double-A Chattanooga (Reds)


    -Luken Baker is 13-for-34 (.382) across his last 10 games for Advanced-A Palm Beach (Cardinals).  He's now hitting .236 with 7 HR, 45 RBI and a .688 OPS for the year.


    -Sean Wymer has picked up W's in his last two starts for Class A Lansing (Blue Jays) to improve to 7-11 on the year and bring his ERA down to 5.75


    -Johnny Rizer has hit safely in 9 of his last 10 for Class A Delmarva (Orioles), where he's now hitting .303 with 1 HR and 13 RBI in 22 games since his promotion


    -Brandon Williamson is sporting a 1.64 ERA and 17 K's in 11 IP across 7 total appearances for Short-Season A Everett (Mariners)


    -Josh Watson has 7 hits in his last 5 games for Short-Season A Vermont (A's), where he's now hitting .259 with 1 HR, 6 RBI and a .764 OPS in 15 games since being sent down from Advanced A.


    -Jake Guenther has hit safely in 9 of his last 10 for Rookie League Princeton (Rays), where he's now hitting .331 with 2 HR, 20 RBI and an .866 OPS


    -Jared Janczak is now 1-0 with a 2.77 ERA with 18 K's in 13 IP in 13 relief appearances for the Indian's Arizona League team.

    Hey random question and my apologies if this has been discussed somewhere else.  Was curious about Tate Martell's waiver being approved but Matthew Baldwin's being denied.  On the surface I would assume their circumstances are similar and they transfered after Justin Fields transferred in.  But maybe there's a nuance I'm not aware of that explains the different outcomes?? 


    Seems to me their situations were identical.  No justifiable reason for different rulings.

  9. I'm not good at embedding tweets, but there were a few nuggets from Jeremy Clark this morning.  Sounds like:


    -The QB race may be, as many have already speculated, down to Delton & Duggan.


    -Montrel Wilson is done with football.  


    -Dee Winters and La'Kendrick Van Zandt may be stepping up to fill the void at LB


    EDIT: Ha, looks like @angelosfrog beat me to most of this info.

    Didn't mean to say or imply you did. I was talking more generally about what we're all hearing and reading. Sorry for any confusion.


    I've seen a lot of stuff in the media & on social media about Trump's connect to Epstein.

    No "conservatives" were involved in the making of Epstein's world network, it appears.


    I didn't say that at all.  My post was, I thought pretty clearly, discussing that both parties have connections to the guy.

    It is almost impossible to sneak into a prison and murder someone. At the same time I believe that there was plenty of motive. I do not put it past anyone who would proudly and publicly lead nations into war, resulting in countless deaths of their own countrymen and those abroad, to secretly kill one truly evil person who might destroy their hold on power.


    I just thought it was funny how some people seemed so certain the other party had the guy murdered to cover something up, when they both nominated someone in 2016 with an uncomfortable connection to the creep.
