Does this make anyone else incredibly frustrated with last season or is it just me?
Wide receiver Jalen Reagor, running backs Sewo Olonilua and Darius Anderson, offensive linemen Cordel Iwuagwu and Lucas Niang, defensive tackle Ross Blacklock and cornerback Jeff Gladney are all headed to Indianapolis.
Reagor, Blacklock and Gladney have all been projected as possible first-round talents. Niang is another highly-touted player, although he’s recovering from hip surgery that cut short his senior season.
Anderson had an impressive showing at the Senior Bowl last month, boosting his stock. Iwuagwu has gained steamed in recent weeks as a possible Day 3 pick, as well as Olonilua.
With those seven receiving invites, TCU will have the most representatives of any Texas-based college. Baylor is next with six players followed by Texas (four), Texas A&M (four), Texas Tech (three), SMU (two) and North Texas (one).
ICYMI.. it’s happening!!
TCU will begin its spring practices later this month. Programs are allowed to have 15 practices, including the spring game. TCU’s spring game will not conclude its spring practices, though, as there will be a few afterward.
The spring game will be preceded by the school’s pro day on March 27, an event that typically draws a number of former players and NFL scouts. Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel and Indianapolis Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus were among those on hand at TCU’s pro day last season.
Don’t sleep on these ladies!!
Lauren Heard had 23 points and seven rebounds for TCU (17-4, 8-2), while Jayde Woods finished with 15 points and five assists.
KU led 24-17 after one quarter and stretched it to nine with a basket to start the second, but TCU outscored the Jayhawks 34-17 in the period to lead 51-38 at the half. The Horned Frogs stretched it to 17 points in the third quarter.
The Frogs are facing down the possibility of a six game losing streak while the Red Raiders have revenge on the mind.
In this instance, it will pit Texas Tech against a TCU squad who has claimed a victory over earlier in the year in Fort Worth.
And the Red Raiders (15-8, 6-4), on the wave of a thrilling triumph in Austin, would love nothing more than to make amends at 8 p.m. Monday against the reeling Horned Frogs (13-10, 4-6).
“It’s our first Big Monday game,” Beard said. “So, this is a different beast. We need to get back quickly, get some rest.
“And (Sunday), we need to have a great day of preparation. But there’s that fine line between saving the guy’s legs and trying to practice a little bit.”
The process of putting together a game plan should be a bit more enjoyable considering the Red Raiders are coming off the heels of the programs second straight win in Austin. Last season, Texas Tech snapped a 22-game losing streak when playing in the state’s capital.
But all those positive vibes will need to be erased as the Red Raiders look toward taking on a TCU squad in the midst of a five-game skid – the last victory being a 65-54 decision over Texas Tech back on Jan. 21.
