TCU keeps it close but upset bid falls short at Kansas | The Star-Telegram

Ughhhhhhh....

Alex Robinson finished with nine assists, passing coach Jamie Dixon for seventh place on TCU all-time list. Kenrich Williams moved into fifth place on TCU’s rebounding list, going ahead of Mickey McCarty.

TCU is 1-4 against top 10 teams this season. The Horned Frogs haven’t won a road game against a ranked opponent since 1998.

Kansas is now 16-2 all-time against TCU, and is a perfect 7-0 inside Allen Fieldhouse.

Hold serve at home and you’re in. I think.

It’s not like Northwestern or anything, but the Horned Frogs appear to be on their way to their first NCAA tournament appearance since 1998. Jamie Dixon, I salute you. TCU has its outstanding offense to thank. Not even the loss of point guard Jaylen Fisher to a knee injury has been able to slow down a Horned Frogs attack that takes care of the ball and hits its (relatively infrequent) 3s.

Former TCU lineman offers measured, impassioned defense of program | The Star-Telegram

Jeff is a great representative of TCU, on and off the field.

“Is he tough? Yep. Know what else is tough? Life. You don’t get a 2nd or 3rd rep like you do at practice,” Olson said. “I’m sad that a player felt he was harassed or pressured to play. I’m MORE sad that he received misguided advice to file a lawsuit, as well as seeing the insults hurled at the player by fans. Kolby’s a great dude that I’ve had the pleasure of speaking with a bunch of times.”

Olson said he has a hard time believing Listenbee “was harassed by the staff.”

“But what if he was? I’m not speaking specifically of TCU, another school, or even this exact situation,” he wrote. “Imagine voicing your issues and being torn down by hundreds of keyboard warriors.”

Lawsuit against TCU reads more like a case with football | The Star-Telegram

Wow... Mac has drawn a hard line in the sand, and it might not be on the side you think.

Here’s an idea: If you don’t like it, just don’t play.

Other than the continual need to push for safety regarding concussions, football is fine.

Welcome to life: Grow up, shut up, make a play, don’t be selfish, don’t be too dumb, or sit on the bench and support your team. Or don’t play.

“What people see on the sidelines, they can take what they want from that,” Johnson said. “But when you’re in the program and you live it, you know it. They look at coach Patterson on the sidelines and they see him losing it, but I played for junior high coaches who did the same thing. I played for high school coaches who did the same thing. When I was with (the Cincinnati) Bengals, they did the same thing.”

Today is still a huge day, even if the number of players signing is relatively small. But if they get a couple of guys on their wish list... wow.
