I have a feeling Ridge will get that TCU offer soon.
Ridge Texada | CB | Frisco Centennial (2020) – Texada attended the Frogs’ skills camp on June 21st. If the name sounds familiar, it should. Texada is the last brother of the Texada family; his older brother is former Frog Ranthony and current Baylor corner Raleigh. Like his older brothers, Texada can move; he ran one of the fastest forty times with a 4.40. Texada isn’t the tallest but he makes up for it with pure ability. Someone will be getting an absolute steal here.
It’s doable, but it would certainly be considered a dream scenario.
Dream scenario: Start the season 6-0 and ranked inside the Top 15 heading into the showdown vs. Texas on Oct. 26 — The Horned Frogs could have a real opportunity in the national spotlight in Ft. Worth to end October if they can find a way to win five games as betting favorites and another at Iowa State before a bout with the Longhorns. This matchup would be significant since Texas hasn’t won on the road vs. TCU since 2013. Besides the contest vs. the Cyclones, keep an eye on the trip to Manhattan, Kansas to play the Wildcats on Oct. 19. The Horned Frogs will be coming out of their bye unbeaten with potentially a ton of pressure before the game vs. Texas the following week.
It seems like that Hail Mary was a long time ago, but it now stands as one of the more ho-hum plays of an incredible career — and it’s still early.
Let’s be honest: Nobody should be surprised by Reagor’s success thus far when considering his first career college touchdown catch -- a 38-yard halftime Hail Mary reception from then-TCU quarterback Kenny Hill against SMU. The touchdown put TCU ahead for good that afternoon after a tightly contested first half as TCU marched on to a 56-36 win.
Side note: Let’s hope SMU has worked on defending Hail Marys in the time since.
Lodolo has yet to allow a run in 4.1 innings of work across three starts so far.
Nick Lodolo, the Cincinnati Reds’ top pick in the 2019 MLB Draft, kept his ERA at 0.00 with two scoreless innings on Monday. The left-hander allowed one hit and no walks with three strikeouts in his third professional start. He’s up to 4.1 innings pitched this season.
Young is not slated to start against the Dodgers, but is still in play for a series against Colorado later this week.
Young gave up just one run in five-plus innings against the San Francisco Giants. Working without overpowering stuff, Young seemed to mix his pitches well and mostly avoid loud contact.
“He’s done everything he can possibly do to put his name in the ring and be a strong consideration for another start,” Lovullo said. “He did everything he was supposed to do.”
Lovullo said he was impressed with the way Young battled through a nine-pitch at-bat to get the Giants’ Donovan Solano to bounce out to second to lead off the bottom of the first inning.
“He was composed early in the game from the first batter,” Lovullo said. “Those are the things that stand out.”
