The latest on TCU’s plans for Ohio State ex-QB Matthew Baldwin’s immediate eligibility | The Star-Telegram

Good for TCU Football for electing not to drag Ohio State through the mud (looking at you, Mizzou).

But, according to sources, TCU is not going to demean Ohio State the way Missouri has done to TCU in the Shawn Robinson waiver claim.

Robinson alleges mistreatment by the TCU coaching staff in his immediate eligibility claim filed by Missouri, something that TCU is contesting its grounds on.

TCU is defending its coaching staff in how they handle players, specifically when it comes to injuries.

The NCAA has yet to rule on Robinson’s case, according to sources.

For TCU, if the NCAA grants Baldwin the appeal, the school will be happy to add another quarterback to the starting job mix along with Alex Delton, Justin Rogers, Max Duggan and Mike Collins.

But TCU is not going to do at the expense of Ohio State.

Know Thy Opponent 2019: TCU Horned Frogs | Hammer and Rails

Some say, if you have two quarterbacks, you don’t have one quarterback. I say, if you have FOUR QUARTERBACKS, you will rule the world.

This should be a very interesting game because both teams will be relatively young in several areas. Both teams also signed big recruiting classes that were near the bottom of the national top 25 rankings, so you’re going to have a lot of young, talented freshmen all over the field. The obvious huge question mark is at quarterback. According to Frogs O’ War they list FOUR quarterbacks on the most recent depth chart. For a team that alternated quarterbacks for much of 2017 and at one point in 2012 we alternated three, even I think that is excessive.

Purdue’s defense gained a ton of experience last season and now has some actual depth that will push the starters. The Auburn disaster in the bowl game aside, the Purdue defense did relatively well for most of last year despite zero depth. It now has that, and it is high quality depth, too. Against an offense that struggled for most of last year and doesn’t have a quarterback yet I like that.

From troubled childhood to Rhodes Scholarship: How Caylin Moore learned how to ‘dream big’ | GMA

If you ever had the chance to speak with Caylin, you know what an awesome young man he is. Now, he’s an author and on the speaking circuit.

The founders of S.P.A.R.K. reach out to elementary school students and youth detention centers and share their stories.

”We will be a positive force in those kids’ lives,” Moore said. “We even got a grant for a couple thousand dollars to give to a teacher so she could purchase uniforms. We just wanted to use our platform in a positive way.”

Moore said he never imagined being where he is today.

”It seemed incredibly unrealistic at times, given the environment that I come from, so it was hard to imagine something like this,” he noted.

To children growing up in tough times, Moore’s message is to “hold onto hope, even when it’s difficult to do so.”
