Jim Swink, who as a swift, lanky East Texas teen-ager helped the Horned Frogs win the Southwest Conference championship in 1955, died Wednesday at his home in Rusk. He was 78.

Greetings from College Football Playoff Debate Central. I’m on the road in Texas all this week reporting from Baylor and TCU for FOX Sports 1. I’ll be at both of their games Saturday and then at the Gaylord Texan for the committee’s big bracket unveil Sunday.
