TCU knows the feeling of another Omaha disappointment | The Star-Telegram

Sure, we want to win it all one of these trips. Of course, we do. But... at the end of the day, getting there is an amazing accomplishment, and it’s been an incredible run. Let’s hope we get to go back, and soon.

“You never know if you’ll get to be back because it’s that hard,” Schlossnagle said. “To have been here four years in a row is an incredible accomplishment, but we truly never take it for granted.

“I hope that our Fort Worth community and fans don’t take it for granted. It’s really tough.”

Schlossnagle shouldn’t have to remind anyone here of that, not as long as the Cowboys and Rangers are around.

Screw that guy.

"I thought our at-bats were significantly better today than they were the last time we faced him,'' TCU coach Jim Schlossnagle said. "But the chances that we did get, he made pitches.

Highlights of TCU 4-Star Quarterback Pledge Justin Rogers at Pylon 7v7 Nationals | Scout.com

Justin Rogers is DOMINATING the summer circuit.

The TCU Horned Frogs pledge, who is the No. 104 overall prospect in the 2018 Scout 300, led his 7v7 team -- Bootleggers, who are all from Louisiana -- to a 2-1 pool-play record. That led to a Final Four appearance in Sunday's final day of the tournament.

Rogers is the No. 1 quarterback in Louisiana and No. 12 QB nationally.

Rogers picked TCU over a slew of offers from across the country, including Arkansas, Baylor, Georgia, Louisville, LSU, Miami, Mississippi State, Missouri, Ole Miss, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, and Texas Tech, among others.
