    I'm a weather geek and I know Newf is, too. There's some severe weather heading for DFW and all over the Midwest right now. I enjoy following a storm chaser named David Drummond. He's also a great photographer. This is the site he streams on. Enlarge the map a little and then click on the red dot closest to San Angelo. It's nastiest down there right now. Fascinating.

    I wondered about you this morning when I read that your governor had issued an emergency warning thingy. I hope your kids get at least a little bit of snow for playing.

    No deaths or illness has been reported to date, according to an excellent source that I follow, TruthAboutPetFood.com. And, that new information about salmonella was just added a couple of days ago, so they're still working at the FDA to keep us safe. 😉

    Coaching Carousel Thread 2018

    Wish I had a subscription to The Athletic just for this article...(It's 50% off right now if anyone else is interested.) ‘Where’s Dan?’: The story of Alabama football’s rampant coaching staff turnover A blowout national championship loss to Clemson may not have been the biggest shock Nick Saban got last week. Four days later in Tuscaloosa, Alabama was about to have its regular morning football staff meeting when Saban noticed someone was missing. “Hey, where’s Dan?” Saban asked staffers, according to people with knowledge of the meeting, in reference to Dan Enos, the Tide’s quarterbacks coach who had just been promoted to become Alabama’s new offensive coordinator. The offensive coordinator vacancy had been created by Mike Locksley leaving to become the head coach at Maryland. Much of the staff was on the road recruiting, but Saban and Enos were supposed to interview offensive line coaching candidates to replace Brent Key, who had taken a job at his alma mater Georgia Tech after three years with the Crimson Tide. “Where’s Dan?” Enos had done a terrific job as the Alabama quarterbacks coach in his first season in the... https://theathletic.com/773433/2019/01/17/alabama-football-coaching-staff-turnover-nick-saban-dan-enos-tosh-lupoi/

    Coaching Carousel Thread 2018

    Posted Monday, November 19, 2018 I figured we should get this started. I'll move the various bits that have already been posted in other threads to this one so that everything's all in one place and easily accessible. Everyone start posting your theories, rumors, and confirmations in here now, please. Thank goodness we know CGP's not going anywhere now. lol --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Posted November 12 Petrino got dumped by Louisville, along with some of his relatives. [This is one of the most poorly-edited articles I've read. "Son-in-laws"? Really? They need @Boston Frog at this paper.] Tipsheet: Petrino family gets rich while tanking Louisville football Well, it was lucrative while it lasted for Bobby Petrino and his various relatives at Louisville. Petrino earned a shade under $4 million per year as the head football coach. His son Nick Petrino and his son-in-laws L.D. Scott and Ryan Beard were on the payroll as assistant coaches -- at a combined cost of $650,000 per year. And what the school get for all of this money? A 2-8 record this season, with lopsided losses to Syracuse (54-23), Georgia Tech (66-31), Alabama (51-14) and Clemson (77-16). With players looking to transfer and recruits decommitting, Louisville became a rapidly sinking ship. So the Petrinos, Scott and Beard all got the short haircut over the weekend. That news broke Sunday morning while Petrino's coaching show was airing in Louisville. That was a bit awkward. Petrino will collect a $14 million buyout from the school. Given his past character issues and Louisville's stunning collapse on his family's watch, he may not get another head coaching job. Then again, it's not like Petrino and Co. will be hurting financially. https://www.stltoday.com/sports/columns/jeff-gordon/tipsheet-petrino-family-gets-rich-while-tanking-louisville-football/article_de35716a-3ede-511d-b517-bb8eed42d0e7.html?src=rss

    AMES, Iowa -- Iowa State rehired Tom Manning as its offensive coordinator on Friday. Manning, who spent last season on the staff of the Indianapolis Colts, is returning to Ames to run the Cyclones offense under fourth-year coach Matt Campbell. http://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/25795974/iowa-state-cyclones-rehires-tom-manning-offensive-coordinator

    The FDA issued a big pet food recall in November due to high levels of Vitamin D (can cause kidney disease and be potentially fatal), but now they've added the additional cause of salmonella being present in one of the brands. Be sure your dog's food isn't on the list. If you find your food on the list, stop feeding it immediately, but don't throw it out. Contact your vet right away for an exam and call the food's manufacturer for instructions on how to destroy the product. (Don't throw it out for wildlife to eat, either.) Be sure to wash your hands after each time you handle your pet's food regardless of whether or not it is on a list of recalled pet foods. The list of recalled dry dog food products provided to the FDA include: Sunshine Mills, Inc.

    The thing that makes that decision so stupid is that most of the land that burns in those cataclysmic wildfires in CA is federally managed, not state managed. But, as you say 🖕🏻.

    This article is voicing what a few of us have said about poor Jaylen and his need to perhaps just get away from where he's had so much adversity. However, the last line I hope he will take to heart and consider he could stick around two more years gaining experience at Div 1 level and be with a program who has stuck with him throughout his injuries. Hopefully, he does stay in class until the end of the semester and as he continues the rehab on his knee, his outlook will change. Good article by John Henry. Dixon said this week that Fisher was “devastated” by the recurrence of complications. That emotional state alone might explain his decision. He simply wants to get away from what circumstance has made a living hell. He also might have come to the conclusion that his best option is to get completely healthy and try his hand at pro basketball overseas. If he indeed stays around this semester, the door will surely stay open for him. All things being even, a change of mind would be his best option. https://www.pressboxdfw.com/the-chronicles-of-jaylen-fisher/

    " But given the nature of Rogers’ injuries over the past two seasons, I’ve got a bad feeling about the chances of him getting on the field, much less staying there." 😭

    I don't know...Just based on CJD's comments, I think Jaylen may be depressed. I mean, who wouldn't be with his situation? He's got such great talent, but he's been on the bench for most of his career here. Maybe he just feels like he needs to get away from TCU for his own mental health. I don't think it sounds like there's any bad feelings between him and the program at all. Our athletes get the very best of medical care Ft Worth has to offer. And, if it can't be had in FW, TCU will get what they need elsewhere. I really do think the poor kid is just dealing with his career possibly being over, bless his heart.

    “After talking with Jaylen, it’s been determined that he will not play this season or in the future at TCU,” Jamie Dixon explained. “We want to thank Jaylen for all his contributions to the program and wish him all the best in the future.” Fisher will remain on campus at TCU, taking classes in the spring and receiving medical treatment on the knee. Though he was on the bench against Baylor and traveled with the team to Kansas, he was noticeably absent in Oklahoma and at home for the game against West Virginia. Afterward, Coach Dixon spoke on why. “It’s hard. You practice your whole life for these opportunities and you just see it. I’ve seen it before, but I’ve never seen it to this extent. You’ve got to understand how much time and effort they put into it, and how important it is. It’s taken away from you and it’s hard. You just feel for them.” The Frogs will honor Fisher’s scholarship should he choose to complete his degree at TCU. It is expected, however, that he will enter his name into the transfer portal and explore other opportunities to keep playing. Dixon said earlier this week that the junior would qualify for a medical redshirt, meaning he would have two years of eligibility remaining after sitting out a year due to transfer rules. https://www.frogsowar.com/2019/1/17/18186648/tcu-pg-jaylen-fisher-out-for-the-season-leaving-basketball-program

    UPDATE: Contrary to earlier reports, Kansas State will not interfere in Alex Delton’s transfer to TCU. He appears to be on track to be on campus for the spring semester. Additionally, OU has relented and will allow Austin Kendall to head to WVU. https://www.frogsowar.com/2019/1/16/18185851/kansas-state-attempting-to-block-alex-delton-transfer?utm_campaign=frogsowar&utm_content=chorus&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter
