Lincoln Riley against immediate eligibility for in-conference transfers like Chandler Morris at TCU | 247 Sports

We will have more on this topic today.

TCU head coach Gary Patterson said Monday that Oklahoma transfer quarterback Chandler Morris “still hasn’t been released” by the Sooners when asked if he could be eligible in 2021. Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley has now made it loud and clear how he feels about the situation, saying he doesn’t believe Morris should be immediately eligible for the Horned Frogs.

Lincoln Riley says his opposition to Chandler Morris’ immediate eligibility at TCU is about a core belief that you shouldn’t be able to transfer intraconference without any kind of penalty,” The Athletic’s Jason Kersey wrote in a tweet. “He said it’s bad for the game.”

Riley went on to say it’s “unhealthy for college football” to encourage in-conference transfers, according to Josh Callaway of USA Today’s Sooners Wire.

2021 Cowboys scouting report: TCU safety Trevon Moehrig

Moehrig playing professionally in DFW?

Processing: Moehrig has great instincts that are in large part due to his processing. He’s able to see everything and diagnose the play quickly enough to get in position and make a play. He was also the guy who made sure his teammates in the secondary got lined up properly and made the correct reads prior to the snap. Along with the high variance of coverages he played in, Moehrig should be able to adapt well to the mental side of the game.

Toughness: Dan Quinn may see some shades of Richard Sherman to Moehrig’s game, as the safety is always up in receivers’ faces after the play and letting them know just how good he is. That kind of mentality carries over to his play, as he thrives on physicality and being aggressive. It’s to a fault in run support, but teams still love that kind of attitude on the back end.

Intangibles: Moehrig was one of the leaders of this defense in 2020. On top of communicating things to his fellow defensive backs, he was a team captain. His attitude and tenacity positively affects the whole defense as well, and he served as the heart and soul for the unit.

Conclusion

TCU are going to be a tough team to beat this season, and likely going forward, such is the young talent on this roster who still have plenty of college soccer left to play. Credit goes to the entire TCU staff who have not only instilled a solid, clear style of play, but also recruited well and created a roster full of technically gifted players who are developed athletes too. They are a patient team in possession, who will continuously circle the ball and wait for the right opening, yet are still a dangerous attacking team, whose wealth of attacking talent on either flank allows them to get behind teams in these areas. Yet there are still areas that can be exploited, and if an opponent can make a few adjustments to make TCU’s build-up play less comfortable, whilst deal with their press, look to consistently break the lines during their own build-up, and seek to hurt them on transition, they’ll give themselves every chance of causing an upset.

Donors fund 60 medical students at TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine | Fort Worth Business Press

This is awesome.

A donor couple who wishes to remain anonymous has provided a generous gift to the second class of medical students at the TCU and UNTHSC School of Medicine in Fort Worth. The anonymous donors have funded tuition for the 2021-22 academic year for the entire class of 60 students at the School of Medicine in addition to previous anonymous gifts to the school, the medical school said in a news release.

This second class of students, who started medical school in July 2020, will have their second year paid for by the donors. The first class of students, who began medical school in July 2019, received a generous gift from Paul Dorman to fund their first year.

“On the heels of Mr. Dorman’s gift for the first class, this gift is truly transformational for these students,” said Founding Dean Stuart D. Flynn, M.D. “I am truly honored and humbled by this tremendous gift to our students that will have a momentous impact on their trajectory and future.”
