#1630846 Ty Barrett's mom reads Killer Frogs

Posted by PhormerPhrog on 31 January 2014 - 04:49 PM

I was leaving the office when a woman grabbed my shirt (TCU polo) and asked if I went there. I said yes and she said said her son just committed to play there. Turns out it's Ty's mom. We smalled talked for a minute and she said there was a brief rough spot but she got him on track and they are looking forward to being Frogs. She told me about Coach P's visit the other day and went on to say she reads KFC. She wanted me to tell y'all that the last couple weeks has been hard to read but she also told Ty he made a lot of people mad. Very sweet woman and I look forward to talking to her again.

I know we want to speak our minds here but just be mindful that players and their families do read this. No matter what the truth is about Fields I'm sure his family didn't appreciate some of the things that have been said the last couple days. Save the personality assassinations for hanging with your buddies.

#1560109 My God Some of You Are Ridiculous

Posted by Frogs On A Plane on 28 October 2013 - 04:59 PM

1. GP isn't leaving after this year just because things got tough.  He has told us all along that it was going to take time.  It would be a chicken [Craig James] move to leave when things got tough, and he isn't a chicken [Craig James] man.


2.  The last 2 years some pretty ridiculous things have happened that has sabotaged both seasons.  You can say the drug bust was his fault and he should have been watching their every move, blah blah blah.  The man can't watch damn near 100 18-21 year old kids 24 hours a day.  The injury casualties have also been way worse than most schools ever have to deal with.  Yes, every team has to deal with injuries. Not many have had to deal with what we have the last 2 years.  It is what it is, and he has to play with who he has.  But let's not pretend that between the two, it hasn't impacted both seasons TREMENDOUSLY.


3.  In the last 2 years, I believe we have had TWO games total that we legitimately weren't in the 4th quarter with almost all of them being a 1 possession game.  K-State last year, and UT this year.  I may be wrong on that, but I am pretty sure that is correct.  It's not like we are Baylor from a few years ago and people are just beating the brakes off of us.  We are a lot closer to being a good team, then we are to being the TCU of a few decades ago and just getting monkey stomped every game.  Mind sound homerish, but I truly believe that.  We are an OC and some growing up/recruiting on the OL of being right back in the thick of this Big 12 hunt year in and year out.  We obviously need to find an OC for next year, but a guy can come in and do wonders for an offense in the offseason (see LSU).


4. It literally doesn't matter who Gary throws out there on defense.  Year after year after year.  Between all the injuries and suspensions and players leaving the last 2 years, we have had the best defense in the league both years.  I believe it was the best in the league last year, and I believe it is the best in the Big 12 this year, but the offensive woes this year have obviously hurt the numbers.  Our offense has literally spotted the other team 7-14 points EVERY game.  You hardly ever see an offense drive the field for us and get six.  All we need to get right back to where we were is an OC and somebody to step up/recruits on the OL.


In other words, sack up and stopped acting like the damn world is coming to an end.  So we have had 2 pedestrian seasons in a row.  It happens, teams and programs can rebound.  If any of you expected us to come in and win the Big 12 every year without any bumps along the road, then put down the crack pipe.  Just show up to the games when you can and support the team.  Give the man a little time to fix this Boat, he hasn't really been dealing with ideal situations the last 2 years. So the man says some stuff in his pressers in the heat of the moment that you don't agree with.  Tough Boat, the guy hasn't changed since came to TCU and more than likely never will.  When GP stops wanting perfection, that means he has checked out.  If 5 years from now we are in the same boat, then I will be the first in line crying like a bunch of damn women with the rest of you.  Until that happens, quit acting like a bunch of hens clucking on The View and give the man a little credit and time to fix this.

#1558259 Paschall comments on team character

Posted by More Frogs the Better on 27 October 2013 - 12:53 AM

I just don't know if I could ever listen to a lesson on character from Casey Paschall.


Big time cheap shot right there.  Casey Pachall has come to play and given everything he had on the field every single time he put on the TCU uniform.  He's had some troubles but giving a damn, competing hard, and doing his best to win haven't been any of those problems.  When it comes to playing football, this team could use a lot more guys with the character of Casey Pachall.

Being a head coach means that you sometimes need to make hard decisions and I think its time you started making some with your offensive coaching staff. You don't have co-offensive coordinators, you have a clown corps.


We've spent too much money on the football program to start sliding back now.

Well, internet friends, I've reached one of those life mileposts.  Retired.  Spent 32 years, 4 months at the head of an OR bed, squeezing a bag, and never lost a patient.  Well, except for the one organ harvest case, and that still gives me the willies.  Never had a lawsuit, never even a deposition, so I managed to avoid the legal beagles.  Now I can spend more time here, or maybe coming to tailgates during baseball season.  I'm still trying to get my head around this new status, but I think it's going to be easy enough.  That is all.

#1504822 Gather 'round men...

Posted by Coach on 29 August 2013 - 06:27 AM

Time to grow up.  Didn't speak up a lot last season--felt you had plenty on your plate just dealin' with the personnel losses we had and headin' into a new conference--and you handled the pressure better than most expected.


But you better grow up quick--because I'll promise you those LSU boys are lookin' to come to Dallas and run roughshod over you.  They're gonna come into that stadium believin' they can bully you and push you around.  Let 'em believe that all they want--you keep in mind the one thing everybody in the country knows-- we’ve had to work harder, sweat and bleed more than any other team in the nation to get where we are.   When game time gets close, you remember who you are and who you play for.  We're the Horned Frogs of TCU and we've come from the ashes of a team left for dead not too long ago.  You're the newest in a line of men who've come here to put on that purple and make a statement.  And this is your time--right here, right now, to show the whole college football world that you and this team are for real.


There's been a lot of talk from everybody from the talkin' heads on tv to the LSU fans on this board about how we haven't seen speed like theirs, size like theirs, nobody like so-an-so, and a bunch of other horseshit we've heard a hundred times before.  But talk is cheap.  Few who have what it really takes talk--they just do it.  We’ve been here before—with each new conference, in every challenge, we’ve been told we don’t have what it takes.  We’re  STILL playin’ against the whole stinkin’ college football world includin’ the networks, the pollsters, and the cigar-chompin’ power brokers.  And it’s your job to take every doubt and every negative comment and turn ‘em inside and let  ‘em eat on ya ‘til you’re sick of it.  Think about ‘em often and then remember how far you’ve had to come—the sacrifices you’ve had to make--then you’ll know what to do.   Yeah--we haven't met a team like LSU--but they sure as hell haven't met the Horned Frogs, either.  Let's make it a meetin' they never forget!


You’ve won millions of fans by bein’ the little school from Fort Worth that had the balls to get up and smash the big boys in the mouth.   That’s both our legacy and our destiny—to prove that we belong, that we’ve always belonged and that college football is about more than how many fans your stadium seats or how many alumni your school has—that winning doesn’t only come to those with the most money or the biggest television contract, but those who work the hardest, who sacrifice the most, and who dedicate themselves to excellence regardless of how high the deck seems stacked against them. Last season proved you to be such men.  And now it's time to show the world what the Horned Frogs can do when we're fully loaded.  RISE UP HORNED FROGS!  PREPARE FOR BATTLE!  ON TO ARLINGTON!  ON TO VICTORY!

#1567388 So proud of my son

Posted by Frog97 on 05 November 2013 - 07:43 AM

He's in Kindergarten and was told to wear college gear yesterday and today to school. Monday, he wears a TCU shirt and today, my wife, a UT grad (apparently they give these out on Halloween) made him wear a Texas jacket.

He said, unprompted I might add, "Don't worry, Dad, I'll take it off when I get to school." Love my son!

#1561744 GMFP--What Steel Knows

Posted by steelfrog on 30 October 2013 - 01:48 PM

Here's the Deal-io, folks.  There's a lot of wild, uninformed, sort of ignorant talk going on here.  Yeah, we're not happy with the results we're seeing.  Nobody is.


Here's the deal though.  You all see GP screaming at games.  And from that you conclude that he is distant, and some have even described abusive behavior (at least, that's what they speculate about).


Nothing could be further from the truth.  GP is proud of his players just as a parent would be.  He knows, unlike you, all of their warts and their strengths.  He has been known to brag on their extracurricular activities and interests, gushing like a proud parent.  He is INVESTED in the team in a way that none of you ever will be.  His wife is invested in the team and the program.


GP has said many times that recruiting isn't about the ones you hit on, it's the ones you give a scholarship to that you miss on.  That's where this team is.  Look at the Rose Bowl team--what were there, 26 seniors on that team?  That lends continuity, promotes team play etc.  Look at this team the last couple years--tons of premature departures, for various reasons.  this destroys team unity, and most importantly makes playing as a TEAM very difficult.  Especially among the units for whom teamwork is most important, Offensive Line and QB/WR.


GMFP hasn't changed overnight and hasn't gotten dumb.  He has had 2 situations combine into the perfect storm--a step up in competition, and, more importantly, a rough patch of recruiting where he has "missed" on as many as 30 recruits, or more.


Time and a lot of GMFP sweat will solve this problem.  Of this Steel has no doubt.


That is all.
