Frog History Thread

Recommended Posts

I couldn't think of a good place to put this and couldnt remember if we had a thread of this nature.  Maybe we could turn this into some ruminations about Horned Frog history. 

 

Melissa Triebwasser at Frogs o' War posted and elegy to the 1998 Sun Bowl, the game that Mark's the beginning of the Frog Renaissance weve enjoyed over the last 2 decades.  In the thread is a link to a youtube link to the entire game with Sean McDonough and Terry Donohue announcing.

USCs defensive line coach that day was current LSU coach Ed Orgeron.  

 

For all the damn buzz about Chris Claiborne, by far the better USC linebacker that day, was Zeke Moreno.  I was probably biased by how inconsequential Claiborne was in that game but i was surprised to see that he did go on to have an ok pro career, mostly with the Lions.

 

I forgot that Papadakis windbag got their final TD.

 

LRBW2XAPCotYHCGMFP's defense was so epic in that 4th quarter, stopping USCs gathering momentum dead in its tracks once they figured out how to stop the option.  And there was quite a bit of future NFL talent on that defense, more than I remembered. 

 

Landry Burdine made the tackle on the opening kickoff.

 

Why in the hell did we have Royce Huffman returning punts? I know he may be one of the best overall athletes TCU has ever had, but he was no punt returner.  Especially with that sophomore on the roster that year wearing #5...
