Well, this sucks.
TCU wide receiver JD Spielman is done for the season with an injury, sources confirmed to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on Wednesday.
Spielman has been sidelined the past three games and will not return this season. He sustained what is believed to be a shoulder injury in the Kansas State game.
Spielman is the latest blow to the wide receiver corps. TCU has lost four wide receivers to the NCAA transfer portal, including Al’Dontre Davis, Te’Vailance Hunt, John Stephens Jr. and Dylan Thomas.
Brown has a ton of respect for GP and TCU.
On TCU’s offense: They’ve been very effective running the football. If you look at the stats for the last two games, they’ve run the ball very well. During their winning streak, that’s been key. Look at their quarterback, he’s very similar to Ehlinger..... he’s playing well for them right now. They got a running back by committee, some heavily recruited running backs in that room. At receiver, they got good speed.
On TCU’s defense: If you look at longevity, Gary (Patterson) has done it at an extremely high level for a long time. I’m not sure anybody in the last twenty years has played defense as well as TCU. If you look at it, the whole package. That’s a credit to him. It’s always a challenge. They have two safeties that are great players. No. 7 will be a high NFL Draft pick. The linebacker, Wallow, who feels like he’s been there a long time, he’s all over the field. He plays the game the right way. He’s physical, does a good job of reading and reacting.
This is very cool.
Lynne’ Cravens, Gallery Manager at The Art Galleries at TCU, says it was an idea developed by gallery staff to inspire creativity during this interesting year where face coverings, masks and shields have become part of our new normal.
“Especially being in Texas, we are so used to greeting each other with smiles and now that part of our non-verbal language is gone,” Cravens explains. “It’s about how can you still connect with people and show who you are in a way — not to liken it to a bumper sticker — but in a way to express yourself.”
Students, faculty, staff and alumni from across the TCU campus submitted their unique works of art to be featured in the gallery.’
The right thing to do.
