How Texas’ collegiate baseball teams fared this week: TCU, DBU remain undefeated in conference play | Dallas Morning News

The Frogs are the class of Texas so far... but they’ll have to prove it against Tech and UT down the road.

TCU carried a six-game winning streak into its series in Norman. The Frogs scored multiple runs in four innings Thursday, and a 7-0 start was enough to help fight off a late offensive outburst from Oklahoma. TCU poured it on the Sooners on Friday, scoring eight in the first two innings and 17 altogether. Every starter recorded a hit, and, for safe measure, Austin Krob gave up just one run in seven innings. After going down 3-0 Saturday, the Frogs used two big innings to mount a comeback. A three-run 4th tied the game until TCU put up four in the 7th. The four runs came off a combined three home runs. TCU has now won nine straight. A big-time showdown is on deck for the No. 10 Horned Frogs as they travel to face No. 8 Texas Tech.

Standout player: Gene Wood (7-16, 2 HRs, 7 RBIs, 6 runs) during the week.

TCU basketball loses another player to the NCAA transfer portal this offseason | The Star-Telegram

LeDee was getting PT and was contributing, but if you saw the things his parents were saying on social media, this isn’t surprising. I bet he drops down a level and starts.

LeDee is the fourth player to enter the portal from last year’s opening-day roster along with Diante Smith (South Alabama), Mickey Pearson and Owen Aschieris. LeDee is the biggest contributor from that group.

LeDee averaged 5.8 points and 3.9 rebounds per game last season, playing in 23 games including one start. His most memorable moment came when he hit the game-winning shot against Oklahoma State in an 81-78 victory on Feb. 3 in Fort Worth.

Making the Heisman case for (and against) TCU QB Max Duggan in 2021 | Dallas Morning News

If Max is a Heisman contender, the Frogs are going to the playoffs. Right?

Final Verdict

If Duggan wants a chance to win the Heisman, he is going to have to beat Big 12 teams that the Frogs typically don’t, such as Oklahoma. While it is thrilling to beat Texas and Baylor, that is old news. We know he can do that. However, if he can put up a strong performance against the Sooners, he can prove his ability to hang with the big dogs.

Former TCU football player turns himself in on family violence charge in Dallas | The Star-Telegram

I really hate this... Jeff Gladney is a guy that spoke with the media often, and he had such a bright future with the Vikings. I hope there is accountability, healing, and help. Just a terrible situation for everyone.

Former TCU cornerback Jeff Gladney turned himself in to Dallas County Jail and posted bail on a family violence charge.

Gladney is facing a third-degree felony family violence assault charge, stemming from an altercation on Friday, and posted a $10,000 bond after his arrest.

Gladney’s NFL team, the Minnesota Vikings, issued a statement, saying: “We are aware of Jeff’s arrest and are gathering additional information. We take this matter very seriously, as the reported allegations are extremely disturbing. At this time we will have no further comment.”
