TCU Showgirls cry foul over Texas Tech "Watergate" treatment | Fort Worth Star Telegram

I highly doubt anything comes of this, but we'll keep an eye on it. Let's all just be glad the Tech fans won't come back until we thump them in football again this fall.

Early during TCU’s baseball three-game series against Texas Tech in Fort Worth over the weekend, several of the TCU female dancers complained that the Red Raider players were doing unflattering things towards the dance team, like throwing water and dirt at them.

TCU basketball coach Jamie Dixon hiring top recruiters for staff | Fort Worth Star Telegram

Patrick and Miller are huge, huge hires, and the potential hiring of Louisiana Tech's Corey Barker means this staff could have the potential to bring in a major class right away.

David Patrick and Ryan Miller, hired in April, come to TCU with reptuations as strong recruiters. Patrick is credited with bringing national freshman of the year Ben Simmons to LSU last year, and Miller helped UNLV land the No. 5 rated class in 2014, which included Rashad Vaughn, and the No. 11 class last year with potential first-round pick Stephen Zimmerman.

Tech hoops assistant Corey Barker leaving for TCU | The News Star

Baker has some solid ties to the Houston area, and should be able to open up that recruiting ground a bit for TCU, despite the Frogs missing out on Texas assistant coach Jai Lucas.

"We enjoyed him very much as a person on our staff. Upbeat, hardworking and he really had the players best interest in mind," Tech coach Eric Konkol told The News-Star on Monday. "Anytime you hire good people they're going to have great opportunities down the road. Our job now is just to continue to look for that next person that can fill that role and do a great job."

What NFL experts are saying about Redskins' selection of TCU receiver Josh Doctson | Dallas Morning News

It's crazy when someone is the #22 pick in the NFL Draft, and experts are still calling him a "steal." It just goes to show what people think about Doc these days. Glad people are catching on.

Mel Kiper, ESPN.com: "Josh Doctson is the top wide receiver in the draft for me, and the Redskins got him at No. 22. An absolute steal."
