  1. Let’s get him now; let him finish the season where he is at, and go win us a handful of those championships https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/35198095/tcu-garrett-riley-wins-broyles-award-top-assistant
  2. Patterson talking about North Texas during today's TCU presser IMG_1435.MOV
  3. A former Texas Christian University wide receiver filed a lawsuit against the school and the Big 12 Conference, citing a pattern of abuse and harassment, according to a published report Thursday. Kolby Listenbee, who was hurt during his senior season in 2015, alleged that Horned Frogs head coach Gary Patterson and members of his staff "continuously pressured, humiliated, and harassed" him to return from the injury, the Star-Telegram of Fort Worth reported. A sixth-round draft choice of the Buffalo Bills in 2016, Listenbee claimed the harassment began shortly after his injury was diagnosed. In the suit, he said coaches wanted him back on the field quickly due to "their quest for a national football championship." Read more: https://a.msn.com/r/2/BBIAtb8?m=en-us
  4. There is no good time to bag on the fans if you are the head coach of a football team that just finished .500, with a losing record in the Big 12. It helps, though, when you have your own statue. Nonetheless, Gary Patterson selected just that time to charge forward and politely rip the thousands who wisely elected not to show up in the cold and the rain for TCU’s snore blowout home loss on Saturday to Kansas State. But, good news, TCU fans — the Horned Frogs are going to the Liberty Bowl to play Georgia. That should inspire them. After the loss to K-State, GP was understandably disgusted with a crowd that did not show up from start to finish ... kinda like his team. The announced attendance was the laughably inflated 42,746. Call it a major upset if 20,000 showed at Amon G. Carter Stadium on Saturday. And those people deserve medals for sitting in that muck to watch that boring game. “I was happy with the student section that was here. I wasn’t happy with the rest of it. Didn’t finish the deal. When we win championships we want TCU to be along but rain or shine, everybody’s got to be there. You’re all in or all out,” GP said. “I promise you, if we were in Manhattan, Kansas it would have been packed.” Start with the reality that there is less than absolutely nothing to do in Manhattan, Kan., and move to the fact that TCU is a private school with an enrollment of 10,000 located in a major metropolitan area. This transparent shot from the head coach at TCU fans is long overdue. It is also pointless. This is one hill not even GP can conquer. This is simply a numbers game. While the support has grown exponentially for TCU athletics, and specifically TCU football, since the school was dumped during the original creation of the Big 12, there are not enough alums and T-shirt fans to create a demand to consistently fill a 45,000-seat stadium. Especially when the team is average or bad. TCU attendance is the ultimate “It is what it is.” read more: http://www.star-telegram.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/the-big-mac-blog/article118889263.html
  5. Posted Today, 10:03 PM Congrats Coach! Wish you great success! Brad Hardcastle (@Brad_Hardcastle) tweeted at 11:06 PM on Sun, Nov 29, 2015: Looks like #TCU co-offensive coordinator Doug Meacham is taking the #UNT job, according to reports by @brettvito. Nothing official yet. Patterson's head coaching tree expands, never a bad thing when attracting new assistant coaches. Congrats to Coach Meach. http://www.killerfrogs.com/msgboard/index.php?/topic/196715-meacham-new-hc-at-unt/
  6. Meacham is not getting as much pub as Riley and Briles, probably because he is a little older (50). He played in college at Ok St. with current TCU asst coach Curtis Luper who is an outstanding recruiter. Perhaps we could lure the both of them? He's certainly a guy that deserves some consideration as he is from this area. 4. Doug Meacham, TCU co-offensive coordinator: The former Oklahoma State offensive lineman has been coaching since 1989, but is yet to get his first head coaching gig. That may change this winter, as he's raised his profile a bit at TCU. He took over a TCU offense that scored only 25.1 points per game in 2013 and immediately improved that number to 46.5 points per game in 2014. This year, the Frogs are scoring 44.3. In his one season at Houston, before joining TCU's staff, the Cougars scored 33.2 points per game. It's obvious that between his eight seasons on Mike Gundy's staff at Oklahoma State, and his years at Houston and TCU, Meacham has learned how to put together a potent offense, and he might be ready to branch out on his own at this point. read more: http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/eye-on-college-football/25382398/friday-five-the-best-coaching-candidates-nobodys-talking-about
  7. http://www.frogsowar.com/2013/1/20/3893222/frog-abroad-lets-play-the-university-of-north-texas In this article the writer call UNT a medium size public university. So even when someone 35 miles down the road from UNT is trying to campaign for it in a positive way even they make UNT smaller than it actually is. There are well over 125 public universities in USA and we are some where between 25th and 30th largest. (I have consistently heard 25th other places). So if you were in the top 20% of your graduating class would you call yourself an average student? If this is how a person that has taken a little time to research UNT as a football program thinks of UNT what do you think recruits think of UNT when they have barely heard of it?
  8. A decade ago, TCU was hardly the apple of the Big 12 eye; or any other major conference for that matter. The Horned Frogs had just posted an average attendance of less than 30,000, which ranked well below the likes of UTEP, New Mexico and Hawaii. TCU’s facilities didn’t measure up. And though a budding mid-major program at the time under Gary Patterson, the Horned Frogs were no juggernaut on the field yet, either. Today, however, TCU is the blueprint for those still in Group of 5 purgatory angling for Power 5 inclusion. And with prospective Big 12 expansion being perhaps the final train out of the Group of 5 station, the race is on among those schools to position themselves as strongly as possible should the moment of Big 12 expansion ever arrive. read more: http://espn.go.com/blog/big12/post/_/id/100904/the-race-is-on-among-group-of-5-schools-to-be-the-next-tcu
  9. Five years ago this week, college athletics lost its mind. Or at least it seemed that way in the moment. On June 10, 2010, Colorado left the Big 12 for the Pac-12 and Boise State joined the Mountain West. The next day, Nebraska officially accepted a Big Ten invitation. And all the while, the entire industry waited for one school, Texas, to decide whether it would follow through on a stunning development that would radically transform one conference, the Pac-10, while rendering another, the Big 12, extinct. Finally, on the morning of June 14, word came that Texas had decided at the 11th hour to stay put, halting the expected exodus of four other Big 12 schools. College sports' conference missile crisis ground to a halt, but the game of musical chairs it touched off would continue for several years. The industry has finally stabilized itself again only now. Today, 43 FBS schools -- 33.6 percent of the current membership -- compete in a different conference than they did five years ago. Along the way, one league (the WAC) died, while another (the former Big East) lost its name (it's now the American Athletic Conference) and its privileged postseason status. All 10 remaining conferences include at least one team they did not claim in 2010. Interestingly, Texas, the school once at the epicenter of realignment mania, is arguably no better or worse off today than it was five years ago. On the one hand, staying in the Big 12 allowed the school to launch the Longhorn Network, which, despite its distribution struggles, affords UT an average $15 million in annual revenue. Combined with its roughly $25 million share of Big 12 revenue, the 'Horns easily cash more TV and postseason money than any other school. On the other hand, Texas' athletic department, a picture of stability for the first decade of this century, has cast away its longtime athletic director (DeLoss Dodds), football coach (Mack Brown) and men's basketball coach (Rick Barnes) all since 2013. Not only have the 'Horns struggled on the field, they've seen three formerly downtrodden in-state programs -- TCU, Baylor and Texas A&M -- steal their thunder. And two of those, TCU (Big 12) and Texas A&M (SEC), have benefitted immeasurably by jumping to other conferences -- moves that saw their first seeds planted during that tumultuous week in June 2010.

  10. “I told them we’ve hit the bottom,” said Mason, in his seventh season as defensive coordinator until Jones resigned Monday citing personal issues. “You can’t get any lower than what happened last Saturday, so we’ve got nowhere to go but up." What a moron, they have PLENTY lower to go. Their starting QB against UNT is out for the season and the backup was injured too. They host A$M next Saturday, that could be 80-0. Follow that with TCU and at East Carolina. They have a LOT further to FALL this fall. http://collegesportsblog.dallasnews.com ... tact.html/

Euless Trinity's own Brandon Carter is the latest horned frog to have a run in with the law...Just one of the many issues he's had in his time at tcu...I think it's safe to say he will no longer be with their program http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/10828018/brandon-carter-tcu-horned-frogs-arrested-suspicion-marijuana
  12. Couldn't help it. I had to post this. FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) - Behind closed doors in stalls around its campus, Texas Christian University has a tissue issue. The school only provides one ply toilet paper in its dorms, classroom and office buildings. At least for now.This is a big thing, said student body president Cody Westphal. You know, TCU has this reputation for the highest quality everything whether it is education, technology, teachers, students whatever. I think the next obvious step would be to take the step of quality toilet paper! http://dfw.cbslocal.com/2014/01/22/tcu-students-demand-higher-quality-toilet-paper/
  13. This is a big loss for UTSA -- he's a good player. This is the 5th player that TCU has flipped. read more: http://collegesportsblog.dallasnews.com/2014/01/47643.html/
  14. After flipping Munday defensive end L.J. Collier from Texas Tech a couple of days ago, TCU convinced another defensive lineman to make a switch on Tuesday night. Evangel Christian (LA) defensive end Chris Bradley committed to Texas State in September. But after making a visit to Fort Worth last weekend, Bradley decided TCU was the place for him.

  15. Desmon White, a quarterback from DeSoto who committed to UNT earlier this month, has backed out of that pledge and now plans to sign with TCU. White confirmed his plans via text message this morning. “Just the competition of playing in the Big 12, and TCU has always been a school I wanted to attend,” White said of his reasoning for committing to TCU.

  16. Southern Methodist Univeraity’s support for selling beer at its big games on campus is the latest break in a long dry spell at most Texas schools. The University of North Texas at Denton and the University of Texas at Austin also are considering lifting bans on alcohol sales in the stands at football and basketball games. For now, only the University of Houston does so. The public and private universities considering the change say it could boost attendance and raise revenue. But several other Texas schools — including A&M, Baylor and Texas Christian University — remain opposed. Some cited the potential of underage drinking and rowdy, booze-stoked behavior. For SMU, its proposed expansion of alcohol sales — already permitted in the football stadium’s luxury suites — is backed by many student leaders, alumni and city officials. Bob Clark, a University Park council member, said he’s not worried about drinking-related problems. “I don’t expect it to change the character of the basketball or football games except add more fun to the atmosphere,” Clark said. “I have confidence the SMU fans and students would be responsible in their consumption.” Read more: http://www.dentonrc.com/local-news/local-news-headlines/20131015-unt-ut-consider-beer-sales-at-games-along-with-smu.ece
  17. Anyone going to the football game tomorrow night at TCU? UNT has 3 representatives: Andy Flusche(Muenster) and Trevor Melugin(Prosper) on the North and Darvin Kidsy(Ft. Bend Elkins) on the South. Will also be broadcast on Fox Sports SW alternate channel.
  18. “It's hard to smell the roses when you're trying to scale the mountain,” football coach Gary Patterson said of the TCU renaissance. But “someday I'll look back, know that was pretty special.” TCU's pride comes from more than just its new football prowess (one of only four schools to finish ranked in the top 15 the last four years) and its new stadium and its new conference. The Frogs are as proud of how they reached the Big 12 as they are that they reached the Big 12. TCU Magazine recently displayed a “Welcome to the Big 12” spread. It opened with this: “Not by backroom politics. Not by threat of litigation. Not even by woe-is-me bellyaching. “Nope, all it took was good old-fashioned planning, fundraising, building and a whole lot of winning to get TCU from Southwest Conference castoff, through five leagues in 17 years, to BCS credibility, and finally, into the Big 12.” Read more: http://newsok.com/big-12-football-tcu-proud-of-hard-work-it-took-to-get-new-stadium-new-conference/article/3692650#ixzz20tG6smNQ
  19. May 9, 2013 FORT WORTH – TCU’s women’s tennis team starts the NCAA Tennis Championships Saturday with a match against North Texas. The match will take place at Texas A&M’s Mitchell Tennis Center at 9 a.m. on Saturday. If the Horned Frogs win, they will play again Sunday at 1 p.m. against the winner of the Texas A&M-Southern match that will take place later on Saturday. The Horned Frogs are making their second consecutive appearance in the NCAA Championships and 15th in program history. TCU finished the 2013 regular season with a 17-6 overall record and 6-3 Big 12 mark. The Horned Frogs are No. 29 in the ITA rankings. TCU is represented twice in the ITA singles rankings. All-Big 12 sophomore Stefanie Tan sits at No. 44 in the rankings, which helped her earn a bid to the NCAA Tennis Championships singles competition later this month. Senior Olivia Smith ranks No. 122 in singles. Smith is part of two nationally-ranked doubles teams as the duo of Smith and Millie Nichols is No. 53 and the team of Smith and Tan is No. 79. The Horned Frogs also have the services of the Big 12 Champion at No. 3 singles at their disposal in Simona Parajova. The Slovakian sophomore leads TCU with a 22-9 overall record, including a 7-2 mark in Big 12 play. Scouting North Texas North Texas, No. 60 in the ITA team rankings, finished the regular season 18-5, an undefeated 7-0 in Sun Belt play and the victors at the Sun Belt Conference Championships. The Mean Green come into the NCAA Championships on a six-match winning streak and having prevailed in 11 of the past 12 matches. Seniors Valentina Starkova and Ilona Serchenko were named to the SBC All-Tournament Team, and Barbora Vykydalova was named the Most Outstanding Player at the Championships. Vykydalova comes into this weekend as UNT’s team leader in spring wins with 15 at the No. 2 singles position, and did not lose in the month of April. This is not the first time that TCU and North Texas have faced off this year, as the Horned Frogs earned a 4-2 victory in Denton back on Feb. 27. Saturday’s match will be the 35th all-time meeting between the two schools. No. 20 TCU 4, No. 47 North Texas 2 SINGLES No. 1 - #54 Stefanie Tan def.

Gabi Barbosa/Simona Parajova, 8-2 Scouting Texas A&M The host Aggies, the No. 3 seed in the NCAA Tennis Championships and in the ITA team rankings, come into the Championships with a 21-3 season record, including a 12-1 mark in their SEC debut season. The Aggies’ three losses have all come to teams in the top-10. TAMU is one of only two teams to have defeated the No. 1 Florida Gators in 2013. Texas A&M will have two entries into the NCAA Tennis Championships singles competition later this month in Cristina Sanchez-Quintanar and Nazari Urbina. Sanchez-Quintanar is ranked No. 4 in the ITA singles rankings and is 35-7 on the season for the Aggies. Urbina is ranked No. 52 in the nation, and brings a 17-7 mark to the table. TAMU also has Cristina Stancu ranked No. 68 on the singles chart. Stancu and Stefania Hristov will take part in the NCAA Tennis Championships doubles event, and are ranked as the No. 18 pairing in the country. A&M’s No. 2 doubles team, Sanchez-Quintanar and Wen Sun, is ranked at No. 49 in the nation. The Aggies and Horned Frogs have previously played on 42 occasions with TCU leading the all-time series 22-20. However, the Aggies have won the last three meetings, and TCU’s last victory came back in 2009 at the Mitchell Tennis Center. Scouting Southern The Lady Jaguars are the No. 4 seed in the regional and qualified for the NCAA Tennis Championships by virtue of winning the SWAC Championship over Alcorn State. Southern is making its fourth straight appearance at the NCAA Championships, and eighth in the last 12 years. SU is led by SWAC Player of the Year Demetria Woods, who went an undefeated 7-0 in conference play. The Lady Jaguars also boast the SWAC Freshman of the Year in Danielle Dixon. TCU and Southern have never faced each other in women’s tennis.
  20. FORT WORTH The TCU womens tennis team received a bid to the NCAA Championships for the second year in a row and 15th time in school history Tuesday. The Horned Frogs are a No. 2 seed in the four-team pod in College Station at Texas A&Ms Mitchell Tennis Center, and will take on North Texas on May 11 at 9 a.m. A win by TCU would set up a matchup with the winner of the match between No. 1 seed Texas A&M and No. 4 seed Southern. The host Aggies have the No. 3 national seed going into the championships. The second round matchup will take play May 12 at 1 p.m. We are excited to be in, TCU head coach Dave Borelli said. We are playing at a local site so it is a close trip. It will be an exciting chance to build upon what we have done this season. We have a tough opponent in the first round and we look forward to being in the Championships. TCU and North Texas competed against each other in the regular season in Denton. The Horned Frogs earned a 4-2 win at the Waranch Tennis Complex. TCU dropped the doubles point, but was able to claim victories at No. 1, No. 2, No. 4 and No. 5 singles to clinch the team win. Since we played UNT at their site it should be better for us at a neutral site, Borelli noted. However, they are a very good team and it was a close match the last time we played. Neither team is going to be caught off-guard. North Texas, ranked No. 58 in the ITA Rankings, come into the championships with an 18-5 regular season record which included a sweep of the Sun Belt regular season and conference championships. The Mean Green picked up two wins over ranked opponents with scalps of Arizona and Minnesota. Hosts Texas A&M comes into the NCAA Championships with a 21-3 overall record and a 12-1 record against SEC competition. The Aggies fell in the SEC Championships semifinals to overall No. 1 seed Florida. However, Texas A&M has claimed a win over the Gators this season. Texas A&M are one of the two or three best teams in the country, Borelli said. What coach (Howard) Joffe has been able to build in such a short time is incredible. They can be a formidable opponent, but our first concern is getting past North Texas. If we are able to do that we will look to formulate a plan for Texas A&M. Southern made the NCAA Championships as the SWAC Champions, earning a fourth consecutive conference title with a victory over Alcorn State. Individual fields for the NCAA singles and doubles championships will be announced Wednesday at 5 p.m. Read more: http://gofrogs.cstv.com/sports/w-tennis/spec-rel/043013aab.html
  21. I just got off the phone with Jermaine Antoine, the Louisiana cornerback who has been committed to UNT for a few weeks. I also talked with his head coach Trent Delahoussaye this afternoon. A few outlets are reporting that Antoine has flipped to TCU. Delahoussaye also told me that Antoine is flipping to TCU. Antoine told me that he wants to talk things through with his parents tonight. After a while one tends to get a feeling about the way things are going to go with players. I would be surprised if the Louisiana Class 2A all-state selection does not end up at TCU at this point. Delahoussaye pretty much told me that is the way this is going to go, especially in the wake of Justin Gaines leaving UNT’s staff.

  23. Why should we play North Texas, though?: North Texas is an interesting university to arrange a series with, because although we have played them a number of times in the past we've never shared a conference with the Mean Green. Although it wouldn't have the appeal to the alumni that games against Rice/SMU/Houston and the like, it does have a few perks to it, not the least of it being an easy road trip for fans if the frogs make the trip up to Denton. UNT is located quite near a number of regular high school football powerhouses, and being in the north Texas area is certainly good for business for the frogs as we try to put a cap on the southern Texas teams who try to come up to the metroplex and take our local talent. What else is nice about playing North Texas though is that we'd almost certainly beat them- always a great start when you're scheduling, but they also have the perk of being an actual FBS level school. I don't think any of us are particular fans of seeing the body bag FCS teams come in and get a beating and a paycheck, so playing teams like UNT is a best of both worlds situation. And to continue the discussion of last week- UNT is the best jazz school in the nation and their band is fantastic. They don't really do much marching, but just standing there and playing they can put on one heck of a show. A game that helps recruiting, gets us a likely win against an FBS level school and provides decent halftime entertainment? Sounds pretty good to me, so Let's Play UNT!
