It’s too late to start a 2019 Football offseason thread.

Street & Smith's capsule about  our first opponent:

 

"There weren't a lot of positives in Cedric Thomas' first year as head coach at Arkansas-Pine Bluff (2-9, 1-6) but first-team All-SWAC selections Taeyler Porter (1,220 rushing yards, 9 TDs), Dejuan Miller (56 receptions, 801 yards, 6  TDs) and Jalen Steward (70 tackles, 16.0 tackles for loss, 7.0 sacks) give Thomas some playmakers to build around."

We win by 40

I picked up my copy of Dave Campbell's Texas Football today. Some things of note:

 

Best recruiting class of 2014 = TCU. The Frogs never win the recruiting ratings, but almost always are first in this magazine's review five years afterward.

College coach most trusted by 252 Texas high school coaches = Gary Patterson. (Least trusted = Jimbo Fisher)

Among 40 top coaches under 40 = Sonny Cumbie

Best receiver in Texas = Jalen Reagor

All-Texas first team offense = Reagor, Lucas Niang. Second team = Sewo Olonilua.

Best defensive lineman in Texas = Ross Blacklock

All Texas first team defense = Blacklock, Jeff Gladney. Second team = Corey Bethley, Garrett Wallow, Julius Lewis, Innis Gaines.

2018 class 4A player of the year = Daimarqua Foster. 3A player of the year = Darwin Barlow

2019 high school Super Team 1st team = James Sylvester.  3rd team = Tyler Bailey

 

Pretty good write-up on the Frogs by Shehan Jeyarajah. Of course, it's DCTF, so there is no proofreading. The depth chart shows a third of our players as "6-2, 220, Fr"

Isn’t a lot of DCTF submitted by the coaches?

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).

Now that Mississippi has sports betting, I had a chance to stop by Biloxi and place a bet on the Frogs to win it all.  It was interesting, and somewhat disappointing from a betting stand point.  The Frogs opened in January at the casino as 300 to 1 odds, but by late June were down to 75 to 1.  They were the only team with that big of a change/improvement to their odds.  Had I been earlier in the year, there would have been a significantly better payout.  Of course the Frogs would have to win it all for any payout.

 

Ok St and Iowa St both went from 200 to 1 in January to 300 to 1 now.  Baylor and Kansas St both went from 300 to 1 to now 500 to 1.

My outlook on the Frogs all comes down to QB play and of course FG kicking...

I had TCU at 175-1 odds ($100 to win $17,600) when we went from #3 to #6 after beating ISU by 52 points.    I was ready to jump off a bridge that  day.  All season long I looked at that ticket and I thought for sure I had a shot after the Iowa St blow out.   To this very day I call BULL SHIT!!!!

That absolutely sucks.  If play on the field counted, you would have had a nice chunk of change to play with.

Are gambling winnings taxed like income?

I won $21,000 in a blackjack tournament in Vegas in 2007.  They took taxes out ($3,200) before I got paid, that was my choice.  If I had won that wager above for $17,600, I would have asked to be paid $9,900 in cash and I would have made two wagers for $3,850 to win $3,500  on the same game played at least 24 hours later. One wager on the home team and one on the visitor would leave me minus $350.  I collect $7,350 plus $9,900 the day before and don't have to pay taxes since I didn't collect that total amount at one time in a 24 hour period.  Anything collected in cash over $10,000 within a 24 hr period must be reported to the IRS.

I don’t think this is your first rodeo.  😀

I'd have rolled it into scratch-off lottery tickets.

Good GP interview in Pressbox DFW by Matt Mosely.

 

A conversation with TCU coach Gary Patterson

https://www.pressboxdfw.com/a-conversation-with-tcu-coach-gary-patterson/

"...So really what Alex [Delton] was able to bring in here and do was he was a guy who was voted by his teammates as a team captain. Any time you find a guy that’s voted on by your own teammates…and you know I hold Kansas State’s program in high regard with Coach Snyder’s group. And he hasn’t proved me wrong as far as what kind of person he is, how he’s handling himself coming in. He hasn’t acted like, well I’m a grad transfer, this should be given to me. Really him and Shameik Blackshear, the defensive end from South Carolina that’s here. Both of them have been tremendous, they’ve been tremendous team people, work wise, they’ve been unbelievable work ethic. You couldn’t ask for a better two guys coming in at two positions that we need somebody to play very well."

Someone from The Athletic puts Gladney and Reagor on a list of athletic freaks. Pretty impressive weightroom numbers.
