UNT???? Oh yes, back to underfrog status.
The magazine ranks Texas as the state’s best team, stating “for the first time since Colt McCoy (2006-09), Texas is the undisputed top team in the state entering the season.”
A&M is ranked second followed by North Texas, Baylor, TCU, Houston, SMU, Texas Tech, Texas State, Texas-San Antonio, Texas-El Paso and Rice.
Texas Football picks Texas to finish second in the Big 12 behind Oklahoma with Iowa State third followed by Baylor, TCU, Oklahoma State, West Virginia, Texas Tech, Kansas State and Kansas.
Let the doubters doubt and the haters hate. That’s just what we want.
Other people are higher on TCU than I am. The Horned Frogs lost a lot of pieces on defense and replacing them will be difficult. I’m not sold on any of their quarterback options, either.
This game will follow a similar path as the last two in the series. While TCU loses a lot, Patterson always has a good defense and that shouldn’t change next season.
I’d be shocked if either team scored three touchdowns in this year’s matchup. I have Iowa State winning by single digits.
Someone is going to break away from the pack, right? Right?!
“TCU has one of the fullest quarterback rooms in the country and no clear-cut starter as we head into summer. Alex Delton is a grad transfer from Kansas State with incredible speed, but hasn’t shown us much with his arm. Justin Rogers is the most highly-touted of the players, but he still recovers from a high school knee injury that limited him to just three plays in TCU’s bowl game all last season. Michael Collins brings back the most experience in this offense, but he missed all of the spring due to injury. Max Duggan is a four-star, but also a true freshman that looked like one in the spring scrimmage. TCU still awaits word on whether Matthew Baldwin will be eligible immediately after transferring from Ohio State. I bet Delton gets to start the opener, but I think Rogers eventually wins the job.” – Billy Wessels,PurpleMenace.com
Young has been unbelievable since being called up, and Arizona decided not to risk his long-term health for the sake of chasing a moment.
But man, that would have been a hell of a moment.
“It was the right move for him because he’s never been beyond that, he’s been pushed into the starting role and his pitch count has been in that area and never really been beyond that,” Lovullo said. “Innings-wise, I know the pitch count has climbed, but we’ve moving back and forth in and out of the pen. For a variety of reasons, it was time.”
Young has worked primarily as a relief pitcher for Triple-A Reno over the last season-and-a-half. From Aug. 11, 2018 through June 22, 2019, Young came out of the bullpen 20 times in 28 appearances. In his eight starts over that span (all in May and June of this season), he broke 80 pitches only twice, when he threw 96 and 94 pitches on June 10 and 16, respectively.
