  1. A few memorable 57s: TCU beat Syracuse, 28-27, in the Cotton Bowl on January 1, 1957. John Ruthstrom Zarnell Fitch in his playing days Cory Grant Davion Pierson I think this photo is from the right game (vs. West Virginia in 2015), but not the exact play - when Jaden Oberkrom kicked a school record 57-yard field goal right before halftime TreVontae Hights scored on a 57-yard TD reception from Michael Collins in last year's season opener against Southern
  2. In the high school section, yeah, a great deal of what you see comes from a questionnaire the coaches fill out. That's where you get some really comical heights/weights/40 times, etc. The college section is mostly the work of whatever writer DCTF contracts with to write each indidivual team preview. They take guidance from offical depth charts provided by the schools, but editorialize on them somewhat (though not nearly as much as, say, Phil Steele - who'll sometimes put a top recruit above even an entrenched returning starter).
  3. A few memorable 59s: Terrance Maiden Tayo Fabuluje TCU and Air Force played to a 0-0 tie in the Cotton Bowl on New Year's Day, 1959
  4. I'm in the middle of this one right now. While it centers on President Polk and the Mexican War, it really covers a pretty large contextual swath of American politics and foregin policy in the mid-1800s. Pretty entertaining read so far.
  5. Our current 61: Wil Houston A few memorable 61s: Marcus Cannon David Bobo November 18, 1961: TCU 6, #1 Texas 0 KaVontae Turpin scored on a 61-yard TD reception from Boykin as a true freshman against SMU in 2015 A few bonus 61s: Nate Newton Bill Hicks was born December 16, 1961

  7. Same clown car as four years ago, just different bumper stickers.
  8. I've been travelling and/or sick for a few days. Our current 65: Colson Altmann A few memorable 65s: Dick Lowe Brady Foltz The "Hurricane Game" against Stanford was a pretty memorable experience for any of the 10,000 or so of us that were actually in the stands that rainy, rainy day while the remnants of Hurricane Ike blew through Fort Worth. Despite the size, it was quite possibly the most vocal crowd I can remember at Amon G. this side of the 2009 Utah game. Anyway, it was GP's 65th win at TCU. Nick Browne, one of the last men's soccer players at TCU, also kicked 65 career field goals on the gridiron Baylor just could not handle Jalen Reagor on his 65-yard TD reception from The Muehl in last year's win in Pappadeauxville.
  9. Our current 69: Coy McMillon A few memorable 69s: Kelly Griffin Aviante Collins Stephen Culp W.C.

  11. The Marlins have placed Riley Ferrell on waivers. If no team picks him up (as a Rule 5 draftee, they couldn't option him to the minors), he'd go back to the Astros. MLBTradeRumors.com: Marlins place Rule 5 draftee Ferrell on outright waivers

  17. Our current 72: Kris Dike A few memorable 72s: Bob Lilly Jeff Millican Michael Toudouze Kyle Dooley Jalen Reagor's 72 receptions last year was the second-highest single-season total in school history ...and a few bonus 72s: Too Tall Jones The Cowboys beat the Dolphins, 24-3 in Super Bowl VI on January 16, 1972 Semi-Tough was published in 1972
