Reagor not making first team is a fraud.

Wide receiver Jalen Reagor, who became the youngest player in school history to reach the 1,000-yard receiving mark, was named to the second team, along with right tackle Lucas Niang, cornerback Jeff Gladney and safety Ridwan Issahaku.

Reagor finished with 72 catches for 1,051 yards and nine touchdowns, as well as 161 rushing yards and two TDs in the ground game. But the Big 12’s receiving corps is loaded.

A pass rusher who can dance? Meet TCU commit Adam Plant Jr. | The Star-Telegram

Plant sounds like another great character on a team full of them.

TCU’s football team is boosting its pass rush and dance skills at the same time with the addition of defensive end Adam Plant Jr.

“I’m a great dancer, probably best on the team soon to come,” said Plant Jr., who cited Drake and Roddy Ricch as his favorite artists.

“I’m very sociable. I like to meet and get to know new people and build new friendships.”

That’s good news for TCU. The Frogs will have several new faces at defensive end in 2019, including Plant.

Drew Brees ‘begged’ to play at TCU, and they said no. He became the best QB from Texas | The Star-Telegram

Pat Sullivan might have stuck around... long enough to keep GP from taking over?

“My favorite thing about Brees: He begged to come to TCU, but (head coach Pat) Sullivan said, ‘I don’t need an option quarterback,’ ” said Fort Worth native and noted TCU and football historian Sir Dan Jenkins.

Brees had some good friends who knew Jenkins and they asked him put in a good word with Sullivan, who promptly shot it down.

“That was the response I got,” Jenkins said.

Imagine how Drew Brees as a Horned Frog could have altered the direction of that program.

TCU gets in the holiday spirit at the annual Christmas Tree Lighting celebration | TCU 360

One of the best things that TCU does annually.

This tradition brings thousands of TCU Horned Frogs and Fort Worth residents to campus.

“It’s the first year I’ve been since graduating, and I wanted to bring my daughter now that she’s old enough,” said Rebecca Joslin, TCU graduate. “We live in Fort Worth, so it’s the perfect event for our family.”

Visitors had the opportunity to write and send letters to Santa from TCU. SuperFrog Santa was also spotted taking pictures with visitors.

“I like seeing that everyone kind of acts like a kid for the night,” Boschini said. “I think it’s well worth the amount of money spent to bring people together.”

‘L.E.S.S. is more’: New TCU Alert messages to be more concise | TCU 360

Sounds like the Frogs are making getting information out to their students easier.

After the initial simplified alert, the TCU Alert system will send text messages, emails and phone calls with more information when it becomes available.

“I think it is really important that students know exactly what to do in a given situation, so a simplified system will help eliminate confusion for students,” said Kate Vukasin, a sophomore business student. “Everyone will know what to do with those three messages, so it should make the campus safer.”
