TCU’s Jalen Reagor on Why Guerilla Training Will Make Him the Draft’s Best WR | Bleacher Report

Reagor’s training hasn’t suffered.

“You go back to what you’ve learned from when you were a kid in your high school days, when you’d try to get an extra pump for picture day,” Reagor tells B/R. “You do your pushups, your situps, and everything else takes care of itself.”

He typically rips through 70 at a time.

This draft is loaded at wide receiver. It has a chance to be one of the best in a generation. Yet Reagor does not hesitate: He says he will be the best.

”I feel like I’m the most reliable, the most versatile—I can do it all,” he says. “I’m not one-dimensional. People get caught up in the hype, and that’s life. I’ve always been the guy that’s flown under the radar, throughout high school, college and everything. It’s crazy how no matter how under the radar people try to make me, I always come out on the better end of it. I don’t see why that should change now.”

My proposal to end the faking injury issue in college football | Saturday Down South

Patterson has been outspoken about this issue.

How do we enforce that? The same way an official monitors so that an injured player exits the game. And if a team violates this rule and officials don’t catch it until after the game? Suspend that player for the first half of the following game. Again, it’s on the team to know the rules. Violate them and they’ll be without a key player for a significant chunk of a game.

And yes, it is an issue. Teams do it to deceive because nothing suggests they can’t. But it’s ridiculous. It kills momentum for the offense in a way that officials simply haven’t caught up to yet. It’s a loophole. A glitch. Faking injuries goes against the strategy that the game is supposed to utilize. I don’t want to say flopping is the only reason certain Americans don’t like soccer, but it definitely isn’t helping the sport gain traction in the U.S.

West Feliciana Names Hudson Fuller New Football Coach | WBRZ

The former TCU GA has a new gig.

West Feliciana has found its new football coach amid the COVID-19 shutdowns. Former Catholic offensive coordinator Hudson Fuller was named the new Saints head coach on Friday. The 30-year-old Fuller has been the Bears’ offensive coordinator for the past three seasons resulting in three Division I select title games.

A 2008 University High graduate, Fuller has extensive experience at the college ranks. After graduating from U-High, Fuller moved to TCU as a graduate assistant. He also worked as an offensive quality control assistant at LSU from 2014-15 and an offensive analyst at TCU for two seasons. Fuller oversaw all aspects of the offense, including game plans and play-calling at Catholic.

TCU’s going to online-only courses this summer. How that affects football, athletics. | The Star-Telegram

It shouldn’t be an issue when it comes to eligibility.

With TCU announcing its plans for an online-only summer course load amid the coronavirus pandemic, most students won’t be on campus until early August. That would seem to suggest that student-athletes wouldn’t be allowed back on campus until early August as well.

However, TCU athletic director Jeremiah Donati said that isn’t necessarily the case, describing the two as “mutually exclusive.”

TCU had to make a decision on the summer courses to allow professors and faculty enough time to prepare and formulate a plan for the curriculum. That doesn’t necessarily mean students won’t be allowed back on campus at some point in the summer, if it’s deemed safe for them to return.

TCU is delaying its debut season for this sport amid the coronavirus pandemic | The Star-Telegram

It’s a smart decision for TCU, albeit disappointing for the program.

TCU is delaying its women’s triathlon debut by a year amid the coronavirus pandemic, the school’s athletic director Jeremiah Donati said.

“While we remain excited and committed to bringing women’s triathlon to TCU, for financial and practical considerations, we have decided to delay our first competitive season by one year until fall of 2022,” Donati told the Star-Telegram.

The pandemic has created uncertain financial futures for colleges. The NCAA canceled March Madness and its spring sport championships, which lowered its revenue distribution to conferences and schools from $600 million to $275 million.
