  1. I apologize for missing yesterday - that storm was a doozy in our 'hood. Our current 82: Jason D'Armore, a walk-on WR from New Jersey A few memorable 82s: Josh Boyce, in one of the many moments that made him one of the most clutch players in the history of this program. Bryan Engram Charlie Reid We ran out of fireworks ...and a few bonus 82s: Jason Witten Blade Runner hit theaters June 25, 1982
  2. Our current 84 is Dominic Dnunzio, a walk-on TE from Cleveland. I can't find a photo of him. A few memorable 84s: Dominic Merka after returning a blocked punt for a TD against West Virginia Cody McCarty - taken from us way too soon Michael DePriest scored an 84-yard TD on a reception from Jeff Ballard against Iowa State in the Houston Bowl on New Year's Eve, 2005 ...and a few bonus 84s: Jay Novacek April 26, 1984: Moody Madness. The Mavs beat the Sonics in a decisive Game 5 of their first-round playoff series at Moody Coliseum. An indoor tennis tournament had been book at Reunion Arena, forcing them to play at SMU. The game was on pay-per-view!
  3. The new XFL held a try-out event in Arlington yesterday. A few familiar names among those participating: -Trevone Boykin -Foster Sawyer -Tayo Fabuluje -Nick Orr -Paul Dawson -Jawuan Johnson
  4. Yeah, you never know what's going on at home, how much progress they've made on acquiriing a degree, what level of connect they feel to the program, etc. And take it with a grain of salt - I'd heard that like 3rd-hand at best.
  5. Catcher update: -Humphreys just tweeted out that he's staying for his senior year! -Word is Isola is leaning toward signing with the Twins
  6. I saw on twitter last night that Ranthony Texada had an interception in his second CFL preseason game.
  7. Our current 85: Christian Williams - I thought he was a senior last year, but I guess he got a redshirt? A few memorable 85s: Jeremy Kerley Sonny Campbell Ladarius Brown Not the most fondly remembered season in TCU history, but the 1985 cover of Dave Campbell's Texas Football was pretty great ...and a few bonus 85s: Kevin Williams in a fantastic photo of a great moment from a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. New Coke was put on the market in April of 1985 Back to the Future hit theaters July 3, 1985 NES was released in the US in October of 1985
  8. That photo with Wacker is really something. Unbelievable, you might even say.
  9. We're gonna be a matchup nightmare for some teams...and vice/versa.
  10. I'm keeping an eye on this one. He definitely has the potential to come back, have a solid senior season and boost his draft status considerably. On the other hand, I'd heard rumors during the season that he may have been unhappy. Could be that he takes advantage of this opportunity.
  11. As of today, we are two-thirds of the way through the offseason.
  12. Our current 86: Jack Heathcott, a walk-on WR from Memphis A few memorable 86s: Kelly Blackwell Shae Reagan Corey Fuller, right after a TD reception on an end-around pass from Brandon Carter in OT against West Virginia in 2012 Trevone Boykin threw for a school-record 86 TD passes in his career at TCU I believe this photo is from a different play in the same game, but Aaron Green scored on an 86-yard TD run on the first play from scrimmage against Kansas State in 2015. Oh, what a night that was. ...and a bonus 86: It was published the previous year, but Lonesome Dove won the 1986 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction 5'7" Dallas native Spud Webb won the Slam Dunk Contest during the NBA All Star Game festivities at Reunion Arena in 1986
  13. Jacob Meador tweeted out this morning thanking the Mariners organization for drafting him...but also announcing that he'll be pitching at TCU!
  14. ...and then 4 picks later, Janczak was selected by the Indians at #940 overall.
  15. Jacob Meador, our RHP commit from Burleson Centennial, was just selected by the Mariners in the 31st round, #936 overall.
  16. I'd heard Malcolm Kelly has been spending a good amount of energy trying to get Omar back to Fort Worth.
  17. Alex Isola was just selected by the Twins in the 29th round, #869 overall.
  18. Zach Humphreys was just selected by the Brewers in the 26th round, #793 overall.
  19. Watson selected by the A's. 15th round, #464 overall.
  20. They're back at it today. As of Pick #390 overall in the 13th round, no more Frogs or Frog commits have come off the board since Guenther.
  21. Our current 87: Travontae Hights A few memorable 87s: Stephen Shipley Jamie Dixon in his playing days, helping lead the Frogs to the 1987 SWC title October 29, 1987: Andrew Gregory Dalton is born ...and a few bonus 87s: OMG yes, put it straight into my veins Raising Arizona hit theaters on March 6, 1987
  22. Guenther was just selected by Tampa Bay in the 7th round, #218 overall. $200k slot money.
  23. Johnny Rizer is off the board, going with the 1st pick of the 7th round (#198 overall). $235k estimated slot money, although sometimes seniors get less than slot.
  24. Through the end of the 4th round, no more Frogs or Frog commits off the board. The main HS guys to keep an eye on are Riley Cornelio (RHP from Colorado), Kurtis Byrne (C from St. Louis) and Jacob Meador (RHP from Burleson). Cornelio was ranked 86th in the final pre-draft rankings. Being picked 86th would've brought with it $700k in slot bonus money. As of the current pick (#140, early 5th round), slot money is now under $400k. Obviously we'd like to hold on to many of our current juniors, too. Another year of Guenther, in particular, would be great.
  25. Ranthony Texada registered 4 tackles for Ottawa in his CFL preseason debut. If Denzel Johnson played, he did not show up in the box score.
