I am sure they are talking contingencies. It would be silly not to.
Meanwhile, Byrne said in a Facebook Live appearance, “I’m not saying fake news or anything like that because I think the media is really got an important job they’re trying to do the very best they can.”
Finebaum simply shrugs.
“The easiest thing in the world is to call Greg Byrne or Mike Bohn and say Paul Finebaum said on ESPN that you aren’t playing,” Finebaum told Lee Shirvanian and me on “The Opening Kickoff on WNSP-FM 105.5 on Thursday. “(They say,) ‘No, we intend to play.’ That’s easy to do. Whether any of it means anything or not is a bigger question.
Although he hasn’t visited TCU for an official visit, Bolticoff has some familiarity with the Frogs’ program after attending a summer camp last year. Also, his current offensive line coach at Rose Hill is former Frog offensive lineman Blaize Foltz, who was also a former player at Rose Hill. There is no doubt Foltz has told Bolticoff plenty about the Frogs’ program the past couple of seasons.
Sources have told HFB that the TCU offer was very intriguing to Bolticoff and it was a school he had wanted to receive an offer from; even prior to receiving an offer from Kansas State.
If the Frogs land Bolticoff, they will land one of the top players from the state of Kansas. The 6-foot-5, 265-pounder is ranked as the No. 4 overall player in the state and top offensive lineman prospect. He is rated as the No. 57 offensive tackle in the nation.

According to the USA Today coaches salary database, Patterson was paid just over $4.9 million last year. That figure was four among Big 12 head coaches.

Also, the Star-Telegram noted, offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Sonny Cumbie, defensive coordinator/linebackers coach Chad Glasgow, offensive line coach Jarrett Anderson and defensive line coach Dan Sharp did the same.
“I am extremely proud that our coaches stepped up and made these voluntary pay cuts,” Donati told the newspaper in a texted statement. “They truly understand the environment we, and so many others, are in. It really shows their commitment to TCU.”
The Colonial will be the first major event in sports to return to action.
Henry received an invite to this year’s tournament and is scheduled to make his 19th straight start at the Charles Schwab Challenge. The TCU product and Fort Worth resident has played in every event since his debut in 2002.
Henry’s best finish is a T22 in 2009. He finished tied for 27th last year, one of six tournaments in which he made the cut out of 22 starts last season.
Henry will take the label of leader in consecutive active starts from 2006 champion Tim Herron, who is not expected to receive an invite. (Players who won the event before 2000 received a lifetime exemption while winners from the 2000 tournament and on receive a five-year exemption.)
