I simply can't say enough about Fungo Frog, ya'll. He's the one who, for several months, harassed me and finally convinced me to move my TCU content from my own site to Frogs O' War, and I'm so happy that I did.I'm excited that he's staying on as the main baseball contributor (because let's be real, he knows that program better than anyone else), and he'll still be around to s-talk you guys. You're awesome, Fungo, and best of luck in your professional and family endeavors.
Here are the morning links.
Kansas State’s trip to TCU last year could have easily been considered the season’s most dull game. There was little drama, and, other than a third-quarter touchdown run from Collin Klein, the Wildcats produced few highlights on their way to a 23-10 victory.
Kansas State tries to remain one of the Big 12′s hottest teams with its fourth straight win. TCU looks to keep its bowl hopes alive. A win would make the Frogs 5-6 with one game left against Baylor.
One month ago, a bowl destination was a distant thought for Kansas State. The Wildcats were just trying to keep their heads above water with a 2-4 record, winless in three Big 12 games.
One of the game’s most dynamic talents, McCutchen coasted to the National League Most Valuable Player award by a surprisingly wide margin Thursday after leading a baseball revival in Pittsburgh with his speed, power and defense.
Before he discusses his alma mater and his home state, Gary Patterson wants to make one thing clear: When he returns to Kansas State, the place where his college football career began as an unheralded linebacker, his primary objective is to help TCU inch one victory closer to bowl eligibility.
He had the arm of a god . . . and the legs of a flamingo. Sammy Baugh could throw a football through the earhole of a helmet, or near about, but when he peeled off his pads, his unglamorous gams visible to all, a teammate would be sure to say, “You’re not going to go downtown on those legs, are you?”
TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin will play a large role in the Horned Frogs’ game plan this week against Kansas State, even if he is not throwing passes.
