  1. Yeah, more or less. It wasn't certain but Holiday seemed very likely to flip over the past week and apparently Gray has an uncle who is best friends with Samples at SMU. The uncle connection and plus the fact that SMU puts up big numbers on offense and their top 2 WR's are graduating while our offense was stuck in the mud most of last season makes the flip to SMU not that surprising. The kid has two years to prove himself, why not go somewhere where he can be the man and has a good veteran QB to throw him the ball. Gray apparently still has to graduate in May to qualify though. On the bright side, TCU signed two top 75 players for the first time in history and probably has by far the best O-line class they've signed since I've been following recruiting. We also got two stud 4* DTs in Patrick Jenkins and Jaquaze Sorrells. Sorrells signed with S. Carolina last year but didn't qualify. He apparently is now qualified and can show up in January. Between those two guys, we got the #253 player (#25 DT) from the 2020 class and the #157 (#14 DT) from the 2019 class. Makes up a little for the 4* freshman from Ohio who got homesick this fall and went back to Ohio mid-semester.
  2. Ouch. I would kick my kid in the bunghole if he turned down an offer from Yale.
  3. There are a ton of places in the W. 7th area near the new arena about a mile to a mile and a half from the arena. Fred's, Rodeo Goat, La Familia, Chimy's, The Cork & Pig, Eddie V's and a bunch of other bars and restaurants. Freds is solid for burgers and CFS.
  4. The perfect number of teams for a conference is 9. 4 home and away games every year. 10 and 8 are a problem because of the uneven home/away schedules from year to year. Plus, 9 gives you 4 OOC games so you can play your one tune up/body bag game and 3 hopefully competitive games against teams from other parts of the country. 14 team conferences are an abomination.
  5. Quality, not quantity. One 3* last year out of 27 recruits. Two 4*s for '18 out of 22 commits but one already transferred to a Texas school. Three 3*s out of 23 total for '17. None for '16. And you guys supposed hired Riley at least in part because he had Texas recruiting connections.
  6. Yeah, he ain't power walking, heel to toe. He's running on the ball of his foot and his toes. But, it is what it is. Just a tough way to lose after the euphoria in the stands after such an incredible effort. A real kick in the nuts if there ever was one. Anyway, Duggan is a baller and he's only going to get better. It's just tough breaking into a league like the Big 12 as a freshman. We only started one senior on defense too. There is hope for the future.
  7. Arkansas and Nebraska both need to come over to the Big 12 to become relevant again. Losing their Texas presence has made both programs models of mediocrity.
  8. Taken by the TCU radio team sideline reporter immediately after the play. I watched it 10 times on my DVR when I got home and I don't see how they overrule the guy running down the line right behind the play. We still should've scored but geez between that, the Hunt hand catch and the false start saving them from an interception that would've iced the game, I'm not sure how I survived this one. Great game but mentally and physically exhausting just being in the stands.
  9. I wonder if Tech knew about this prior to the hire?
  10. Losing to KU isn't the end of the world, TCU and UT have both done it recently. In fact, KU in Lawrence has always kind of given TCU problems. Anyway, KU is much improved this season. The only real ass kicking they've taken was by TCU and that was a revenge game after they beat us last season. Gary usually wins revenge games.
  11. Running with the Bleacher Creatures was one of the highlights of my son's life as a kid. It was a sad day when he first got too old to want me to run with him and then old enough to think it wasn't cool anymore.
  12. Mac is right and it's not often that I say that. What the heck is UT doing with Dan's stuff and with an award named in his honor? I mean, it's nice that they did this but it just seems a little out of place given his devotion to TCU.
  13. New burrito joint next to Dutch's opened this week. https://www.star-telegram.com/article236507933.html https://www.tcu360.com/2019/10/dutchs-burrito-bar-opens-doors-this-week/
  14. I was just reminded that the not-KFC TCU message board has a very nice game day information forum. The people on thefroghorn.com are the friendlier more sane TCU fans so be nice. There is a ton of information on here for visitors coming to the game or even people just visiting Fort Worth in general. Some of it may be a few years old but still fairly accurate. http://www.thefroghorn.com/forum/12-gameday-information-forum/
  15. The shuttle keeps running during the game. You don't have to wait until after the game to catch it. If you leave at the beginning of the 4th quarter, there is is a good chance one will be waiting for you. I think they run about 4 buses to and from Doxology. I know I've seen at least 3 lined up in the parking lot.
