TCU football assistant a candidate for New Mexico job, per report | The Star-Telegram

Losing Luper would be a big blow to recruiting, but this could be a great opportunity for him.

TCU co-offensive coordinator Curtis Luper has emerged as a candidate for the University of New Mexico job, according to a report in the Albuquerque Journal.

UNM has reached out to Luper to gauge his interest in the position, the report states. Luper could not be reached for comment by the Star-Telegram.

Arizona State defensive coordinator Danny Gonzales is another leading candidate, according to the report. Gonzales is a former UNM football player and assistant coach.

2020 NFL Draft: TCU’s Jalen Reagor torching secondaries near you | With the First Pick

I can’t wait to see Reagor at the next level.

Incredibly productive in both high school and college, Reagor will be a threat to watch, not only in the 2020 NFL Draft, but also throughout his NFL career. Looking to follow in his father’s footsteps, Reagor looks to hear his name called in the first two rounds of the draft, but do not be shocked to see him go in the first round as players with similar play styles like D.J. Moore and Marquise Brown have gone in the first round to the Carolina Panthers and Baltimore Ravens respectively.

Some of Reagor’s best fits in the NFL include the Green Bay Packers, San Francisco 49ers, and Philadelphia Eagles. Any team that could utilize a playmaker in space and down the sidelines would be an ideal landing spot, making him a tantalizing option on the other end of the famous Aaron Rodgers’ back shoulder sideline fades.

Former top 50-QB Justin Rogers is 100 percent ready to play | 247 Sports

The question is, how long will it be before he is up to game speed — and who will it be for? It’s worth any of the programs signing him at this point — schools like Maryland, Rutgers, and Tulane could get a high-level talent that they would have had zero shot at originally.

The first day Rogers entered the portal he heard from an avalanche of schools, including Arkansas, Rutgers, Utah, Tulane, Louisiana Tech. In the time since Northwestern, Purdue and many others have reached out. Maryland got in touch with Rogers last week.

Rogers remains an immense talent. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound quarterback has a great arm and can make all the requisite throws. TCU held off LSU, Texas A&M and many others the first time around in his recruitment.

The Bossier City, Louisiana native told 247Sports he’d like to make a decision by Christmas at the latest. Finals and TCU’s class schedule have prevented Rogers from taking visits, but he has plenty of knowledge of many of the schools under consideration from his first recruitment.

Carter Scores 25, No. 11 Texas A&M Women Beat TCU | NBC DFW

Pebley might finally have her tournament team, as they took a top program to the wire on the road Wednesday night.

Lauren Heard scored TCU’s final seven points in a 9-3 spurt that gave the Horned Frogs (7-1) a four-point lead with 5:48 left in the game and her 3-point just more than a minute later gave them their biggest lead of the game at 64-59. Wells hit two free throws and, after TCU’s Kianna Ray and Jones traded layups, Carter made a 3-pointer and then a layup to give the Aggies (8-1) a 68-66 lead with 32 seconds remaining. Jayde Woods answered with a layup before Carter split two defenders and hit a running floater over a third.

A look at why SMU and TCU aren’t playing in men’s basketball, with no indication the longstanding rivalry will return | The Dallas Morning News

It’s odd that TCU wasn’t interested in scheduling the Ponies, unless Kendric Davis is part of the reason why they didn’t want to play this year.

The only years the game was not played were 2003 and 2014. TCU has played SMU more than any opponent during that time, and SMU leads the series 106-87 -- a total of 193 games.

“They didn’t want to renew the contract,” Jankovich said. “So hopefully they will.”

Jankovich added that they’d want the rivalry to continue, but there’s no indication it’s a mutual desire.

A TCU basketball representative told The Dallas Morning News that Jankovich never reached out to TCU head coach Jamie Dixon to renew the contract. Furthermore, TCU’s spokesman said the school didn’t receive any word from SMU about renewing the contract until September, two months before the season started.

TCU declined an interview request, and athletic director Jeremiah Donati didn’t respond to multiple requests for comment.
