  1. Tarleton State is moving up to Division I LINK to the Star-Telegram story They'll be in the WAC (!!!) for all sports but football, in which they plan to be an FSC independent. They've already announced a road football game against A&M in 2025, and the article said they're in talks to play the Frogs in Fort Worth in 2021. I wouldn't be surprised to see them pop up semi-regularly on our non-conference basketball schedule and be a regular Tuesday night visitor to Lupton in the future.
  2. I'm guessing the plan is to redshirt Pearson and Todd?
  3. A few quick updates after the win over ULaLa: -The Frogs, collectively, set a new school record by hitting 18 three-pointers last night. -Samuel passed Craig Sibley on the all-time blocks list - he's now #7, and needs 17 to pass Karviar Shepherd for #6 -Bane passed the 1,300-point mark for his career, and is now 123 points away from passing Gary Turner for #10 on the all-time scoring list -The victory puts Dixon two away from reaching 400 for his career, and was the 70th for him at TCU. With one more, he'll tie Matty Bell for #8 on the TCU coaching wins list.
  4. Fuller looked 1,000% better tonight than he did in the opener. Really liking the steady improvement we're seeing from Nembhard, too.
  5. So do they drive, like, really nice minivans?
  6. Hey Jared - what are Cam's chances to qualify for the Olympics next year?
  7. FSU is certainly higher-profile, but Norvell has ties to Arkansas (the state, not necessarily the University), so that might factor into the equation for him. Drinkwitz is interesting - certainly a rising star, but not yet with the skins on the wall that U of A might want/need in this hiring cycle.
  8. Indeed. During the game on Saturday, they played the songs for each branch of the armed forces and asked veterans of them to stand up. Hard to imagine the ways in which my life would be different if it weren't for the service of the men & women I saw standing around me. I hope that any criticism I have for American foreign policy is never confused with a lack of deep gratitude for those who have served. It's a debt I'll never be able to repay. Thank you.
  9. Here's what I'm hearing from Razorback fans in regard to their priority: 1) Somehow convince Malzahn to leave Auburn and come "home" 2) Norvell. I think #1 is a longshot. While Malzahn is perpetually on the hot seat at Auburn, I find it hard to imagine them letting him walk away to an in-division rival. #2 is a much safer bet, unless Norvell gets offered a lot more money by a higher-profiled program. I think he'd be a good fit in Fayetteville, but then again, I thought Morris would be so who knows.
  10. Gotta get a W this weekend. Good thing the road teams have dominated this series as of late.
  11. Apparently Donald Trump Jr has written a new book. In one section, he writes the following about his thoughts while driving past Arlington National Cemetary: "as we drove past the rows of white grave markers, in the gravity of the moment, I had a deep sense of the importance of the presidency and a love of our country ... In that moment, I also thought of all the attacks we'd already suffered as a family, and about all the sacrifices we'd have to make to help my father succeed" ...so there's that.
  12. Real quick update after last night's season-opener: -Bane passed Junior Blount and Marcus Shropshire on the career three pointers made list, is now #9 all-time and needs 16 to pass Malcolm Johnson for #8. -Samuel passed Damion Walker and Marlon Dumont on the career blocks list, is now tied with Dennis Davis for #8 all-time and needs 5 to pass Craig Sibley for #7
  13. There has not (nor will there be, I'm guessing) any official announcement on Duggan's status. Some people have assumed, based on what they've seen on video and in photos, that he broke a finger in his throwing hand. If that's the case, it'd be really hard for him to go.
  14. Is he gone from the team already, or is he planning to leave at the end of the season?
  15. The Frogs have 31 regular-season games and would be guaranteed at least 1 postseason game in the Big 12 tournament. If he's healthy, in 32 games he'd need to average 19.8 per game to reach Browder. Obviously, more games would create more opportunities and drive that required average down.
  16. Here's what I'm tracking as we begin the new season: Desmond Bane: Current career points: 1,253 -Needs 174 to pass Gary Turner for #10 all-time -Needs 251 to pass Lee Nailon for #9 -Needs 256 to pass Ryan Carroll for #8 -Needs 260 to pass Kurt Thomas for #7 ...needs 634 to break Darrell Browder's school record Current career steals: 85 -Needs 39 to pass Jeff Jacobs for #10 all-time -Needs 41 to pass Brent Hackett for #9 -Needs 45 to pass Darrell Browder for #8 -Needs 49 to pass Ryan Carroll for #7 ...needs 84 to break Kyan Anderson's school record Current career 3-pointers made: 157 -Needs 4 to pass Junior Blount for #10 all-time -Needs 5 to pass Marcus Shropshire for #9 -Needs 21 to pass Malcolm Johnson for #8 -Needs 26 to pass Jeff Jacos for #7 ...needs 87 to break Corey Santee's school record Kevin Samuel: Current career blocks: 77 -Needs 2 to pass Damion Walker for #10 all-time -Needs 4 to pass Marlon Dumont for #9 -Needs 5 to pass Dennis Davis for #8 -Needs 9 to pass Craig Sibley for #7 ...needs 95 to break James Penny's school record
  17. An update after the OSU game: Jalen Reagor has now passed Reggie Harrell for #9 on the all-time receptions list -He now has 137 career receptions, so he needs 8 to tie KaVontae Turpin for #8 all-time -He now has 2,091 career receiving yards, so he needs 20 to tie Cory Rodgers for #9 all-time -He now has 21 career TD receptions, so he needs 1 to tie Josh Boyce for #2 and 8 to tie Josh Doctson's school record Darius Anderson now has: -2,265 career rushing yards, so he needs 337 to tie Matthew Tucker for #10 all-time -670 rushing yards this year, so he needs 408 to tie Ed Wesley's 2010 season for #10 on the single-season list -18 career rushing touchdowns, so he needs 3 to tie Andre Davis & Ed Wesley for #10 all-time -7 career 100-yard games, so he needs 1 more to tie Mike Lutrell for #10 all-time Max Duggan now has -12 TD passes this year, so he needs 5 to tie Kenny Hill's 2016 season for #10 on the single-season list. -1,405 passing yards this year, so he needs 989 to tie Jeff Ballard's 2006 season for #10 on the single-season list.
  18. How were our Big 12 bunkmates ranked?
  19. Interesting how fake news can work - I've found myself in recent weeks, even as an outspoken critic of our moron president, siding with Republicans when they criticized the impeachment process for being conducted behind closed doors and with only one party participating. Turns out, it's all being done according to the rules...the rules they set back in 2015! Not only that, there've been Republicans in the room the entire time, asking questions of the witnesses.
  20. Kenny Hustle had 16 points and 6 boards last night in the Pelicans' loss to the Warriors. Through 4 games in Year 2, his per-game averages are 7.5 points, 5.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 1.5 steals in 24.5 minutes. He's shooting 43.5% from the field and 38.5% from beyond the arc.
  21. One of the things I loved seeing last week was Duggan capitalizing on the shorter routes - 5 to 7 yard slants, curls and outs. It really helped us avoid as many 3rd & longs as we've faced most of the year, and got a few guys (Lynn, Stephens, Hunt) more involved than they've typically been.
  22. I wouldn't be surprised to see Diante Smith start to take minutes away from Grayer, and PJ Fuller from Nembhard as the season goes on. I also suspect we'll see Barlow's minutes fluctuate from game to game depending on the size of the team we're facing.
  23. The lens of victory certainly changed how I view those uniforms. I thought it was funny to hear UT fans chide them. C'mon, folks, your team wears puke orange EVERY GAME.
  24. I was only there for part of it, and was having to pay more attention to my rowdy youngster than the action on the field - but from what I could tell, this was the starting lineup: C: Humphreys 1B: Gene Wood (Sr transfer from Alabama) 2B: Bobby Goodloe SS: Tommy Sacco (Juco transfer) 3B: Conner Shepherd RF: Phillip Sikes (Juco transfer) CF: Sam Thompson (Freshman) LF: Porter Brown DH: Austin Henry The pitchers I saw on the hill were Jacob Meador (freshman), Johnny Ray (Juco transfer) and Jacob Speaker (freshman). I left before he took the mound, but saw a tweet that indicated that Harrison Beethe (Juco transfer) came in throwing gas. It was 6-3 Texas State when I left, which was probably about the end of the 6th. Pretty good crowd out there, by the way.
  25. There's a thread over on the other board about the "secret scrimmage" against Washington. Apparently the Frogs won, with Bane leading the way by scoring 26. That's two "wins" vs. pretty good opponents in the preseason. Looking forward to seeing this team in action.
