TCU’s Nick Lodolo becomes latest example of why going to college can pay off | The Star-Telegram

Lodolo absolutely gambled, but it more than paid off for the ace.

On the flip side, going to college gives a teenager an opportunity to develop more on the field and experience college life off it, rather than endure lengthy bus rides in the minor leagues.

For Lodolo, the gamble of going to TCU has more than paid off.

He became the seventh overall pick by the Cincinnati Reds earlier this month, and signed a $5.4324 million deal on Tuesday, according to That’s more than $3.6 million than he would’ve gotten three years ago. Or, simply put, he essentially earned more than $1.2 million each year in college.


The DFW Sports Curse: Cowboys, Rangers, Mavs, Stars, and More | Sport DFW

Oh, do you want a kick in the groin, DFW sports fans? Then, boy, do I have the link for you.

Then in 2014, they suffered from the horribly officiated Baylor game that was their lone loss. Then the College Football Playoff Committee moved TCU to #3 in the rankings the week before their final rankings. TCU beat Iowa St. by 50+ points, and fell to #6 in the rankings, as they went to the Peach Bowl. To this day, I will argue with anyone that TCU was the best team in the country that year.

In 2015, the 2nd place Big 12 school (TCU) is supposed to go to the Sugar Bowl to play an SEC team (like Texas in 2018), but this did not happen due to the a College Football Playoff game being played there. Then in 2017, the same situation happened yet again. At least both seasons ended with epic Alamo Bowl comebacks!

81 Days Until Kansas Football: Way Too Early Predictions - First Four Conference Games | Rock Chalk Talk

Please let order restore itself in 2019.

@ TCU (36/34)

Kansas has unexpectedly given TCU all kinds of problems since the Frogs became members of the Big 12 (with the notable exception of the 2017 running clock game), even knocking them off last year in an admittedly flukey game in which David Beaty didn’t know a very important rule. The Frogs will be looking for a new quarterback, a battle which includes former K-State QB Alex Delton. However, TCU’s defense should still be stout enough for them to control most games, and it’s like that a team in KU’s position won’t be able to muster enough offense to hang for very long.TCU 41, Kansas 24
