These two TCU QBs will share first-team reps when fall camp opens Thursday | The Star-Telegram

Michael Collins has been really good, and that has just served to help Shawn Robinson get better.

“We will alternate days in fall camp with Shawn and Michael getting reps with the ones and the twos until we feel one guy has separated himself and then give him the one reps,” TCU co-offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie told The Ruden Report last month.

That falls in line with what Patterson has said throughout the offseason – the quarterback position is still up for grabs.

TCU had a video offer that was really cool. Not awkward, no matter what Dallas says.

TCU went in an interesting direction: Its offer letter is actually a video of (somewhat awkward?) Gary Patterson telling recruits why they should suit up for the Horned Frogs. Not sure what to think here.

It would be awesome to see Max a little louder in recruiting, but you have to love his attitude in helping guys find the best fit for them. It speaks highly of his character.

Duggan has said many times that he’s not one to necessarily reach out to perspective recruits but he’s not afraid to answer questions when asked. Duggan was tasked to answer plenty of recruiting questions on Friday with 2019 targets Josh Foster, Darwin Barlow, Tamauzia Brown and Peyton Powell on campus.

“I talked to the Newton kids and Peyton Powell; I was a person for them to come to and ask questions,” he said. “I told them what I thought about it and how I got there. I even talked to a couple of quarterbacks that were there that asked me some questions about recruiting. That’s the biggest thing; I want to get kids to the best spot that fits them.”

It’s the salsa!

Former TCU star Matt Carpenter had a monster July at the plate for the St. Louis Cardinals.

He clubbed 11 homers during the month, which was the most in all of baseball. He now has 26 homeruns this season, which trails Nolan Arenado of the Rockies (28) for the most long balls in the majors.

On Thursday, the former TCU star was given his first National League Player-of-the-Month award.
