#1899726 TCU's NSD Event recap

Posted by TCURiggs on 04 February 2015 - 09:01 PM

I'll give it a go, but feel free to add on to it:


The big news is that Coach Bump is hanging it up. This wasn't mentioned until all of the coaches had spoken, then GP brought it up as he took the mic. He said that Bumpas would hate that he was doing it, but he wanted to recognize and thank him. The 600 or so in attendance then gave Bump and his wife a standing ovation. Neat moment. GP said he'll probably be able to lure him back in occasionally to break down some film by offering him some trout fishing trips. He also wrapped it up pretty quickly, as he said he didn't want to piss off a 65 year-old man that still does squats and power cleans. He said that two DL rushed bumpas for some horseplay the other day, and they both ended up on the ground.


Our coaching staff is greatness. Every coach took a turn speaking, some went longer than others, but it was very apparent how much they like each other. Not only because they talked about it, but also because it showed. Awesome group. It's obvious why we hear so many good things about them on the recruiting trail... lots of character. All of them got good laughs from the crowd, but Sharp probably had the most mic time. He admittedly had a few glasses of wine beforehand and had some good stories... he gets a lot of speeding tickets.


Coach Cross announced that he and his wife are expecting their first child, and he claims to be the best golfer of the bunch. 


Coach Loop left his truck running at the airport for two days as he was in a hurry to catch a flight for a recruiting trip. He may be the second best golfer. He also sat outside Sam Awolope's house for 4 hours making sure UT's staff didn't show up... trying to keep them out.


Big Meach accidentally left his rental car running for two hours while visiting with Turpin, which led them to running out of gas by the Zoo on University Dr. He said he begged Turpin to commit, because if he didn't everyone would tell him it was his fault for leaving them stranded.


Coach Burns is apparently called "The Closer" according to Coach Loop.


Cumbie said he was nervous at last year's event and said "you try being a Red Raider surrounded by a room full of Horned Frogs."


Coach Anderson is just a really well-spoken, genuine guy. You can tell why he's such a good recruiter. 


Everyone knows about GP. He was his usual self, talking about how he's not satisfied (and won't ever be) and how we need to keep doing things the right way. There may have been a few references/jokes (not as much by GP) about that school 90 miles South of here, and GP talked about learning how to be a winner. He is who he is, which we all know, and I'm glad he's at the helm. He's greatness, and he has put together a great staff.


As for the recruits, we've heard a lot about them. He mentioned that Deshawn Raymond has already put on 9 lbs after only being here for a few weeks, since he finally has some good meals to eat (not a great home life).


Joe Broadnax is a Chucky Hunter clone. He's not very tall, but he's strong as hell and gets after it... typical TCU guy.


Montrel Wilson is a Safety as of now, but he's big enough that he may move to LB like Jonathan Anderson.


Semaj Thomas is also big enough that he could end up as a DE, and Bryson Henderson may end up big enough to play inside.


GP mentioned that a couple of the guys (Tre Heights, Tony James, and maybe one or two more) may need some time in the weight room, but they're great athletes.


He seemed really high on Niko Small... he's faster than people think, aggressive as hell (they may need to tone him down) and he's about a 1,500 SAT guy. 


Jozie Milton's small HS had a leg press machine that could "only" hold 800 or 900 lbs, so he'd tell other kids to jump on there. Coaches said he just kept telling kids to hop on and kept pressing. Smart kid as well.


Gladney and Julius Lewis are blazing fast... 10.5 or 10.6 100m guys, and Lewis will hit.


Cordel Iwuagwu is apparently African royalty. His Dad is a Prince and Mom is a Princess, and he's meaner than hell. 


Sam and Big Dave are very high-ceiling OTs. Both are very long and have a lot of potential.


Arico Evans may end up being a bigger, faster Hackett.


Austin and Stewart are just good, solid recruits. Austin is big and strong, and Stewart is polished and can probably play inside or outside.


Tipa has a fantastic motor, and GP said he may end up being "a huge guy." Sharp was joking about Tipa's last name, and mentioned that he was Big V's cousin, so he said they're just going to call him "Skinny G" for now.


Freeze and Dunham both run very well, and both are on campus now. The staff is hoping both can help the team this season. I mentioned what GP said about Raymond gaining weight, so he said he could see him ending up at S if that keeps up. 


I now have tired-head. Feel free to add.

#1961794 An Aggie's Reaction to Last Night

Posted by harleyspoon on 09 June 2015 - 08:47 AM

Aggie here.  Don't post here often, but visit occasionally when there is any news.  Took my ten year-old son to the game last night which was the only one of the three games that we attended.  Sat in reserved seating very close to the adjacent TCU section.....right across the aisle.   Outside and inside the stadium, the TCU fans both old and young were nothing but cordial to us.  We enjoyed the stadium and the atmosphere and appreciated your hospitality.  I also thought your stadium staff did a good job of handling the big crowd and the way they interacted with us.   My ten year old was also very complimentary of the experience.   The vast majority of other Aggies that I spoke to shared my sentiments.


You have a solid team that I believe deserved to win the game last night.  Ump was very inconsistent....but equally inconsistent in my opinion.  Good luck in Omaha.

I reached into my TCU shirt drawer to grab my Big 12 Baseball Champions shirt to wear as I work from home today (Tropical Storm Bill), and I accidentally grabbed my Big 12 Football Champions shirt by mistake. So annoying

#1891761 Update on Micah Ahern - Good news.

Posted by PhormerPhrog on 24 January 2015 - 07:01 PM

Post on fb about an hour ago. Continue to pray for the little guy. He's got the courage of a lion and the heart of a champion. Sounds like he's just about to kick cancer's [Rod Gilmore].


We got the results of Micah's bone marrow aspirates and urine yesterday. His urine was completely normal! 

His bone marrow aspirates and biopsies were also completely normal. There was no evidence of any cancer cells at all!

So what does this mean? It means that we willcontinue with treatment as planned. He will complete his last two rounds of antibodies over the next two months. At that time we will do scans and bone marrows once again. If he stays clear of all disease then the doctors will officially say he is cancer free. 

With neuroblastoma it is common for nb cells to hide in the body, especially the bone marrow. That is why the doctors wait for two consecutive negative results before declaring a patient cancer free.

We are so grateful for the great results. It is a burden lifted. Thank you all for praying so much for Micah and for each of us.


Sweet Micah with Grace!

#1787904 Gather 'round men...

Posted by Coach on 10 October 2014 - 05:18 AM

Goin' to Waco tomorrow.  Big game, big crowd, big viewing audience--it's a national stage.  It's what you've worked your whole life for.  What most of us would give our left nut for.


Last week was no fluke.  You can't overcome some of the play we had by accident--you have it in you to be the greatest team we've seen 'round here in decades.  We know it--now it's time to prove it to the rest of the college football world.


You know what it's taken to get here.  You know the journey--two years of hard work and hard play with little to show for it--but the payoff is finally here.  Your chance to show the world what you've known in your heart all along--we're not upstarts, we're champions.


Just remember--a true champion doesn't care what anyone else says or does--he doesn't need ESPN or Sports Illustrated or the talkin' bobble heads blabbin' about his teams' chances.  He knows the hard work, the sweat, blood and pain that he's endured and knows that sacrifice has prepared him for exactly where he is.  And ultimately, when the time comes, he takes care of business.  First week to last, kickoff to the final gun of each and every game--he doesn't play up or down to the competition, but plays within himself to the very best of his abilities.


It's gonna be a circus in Waco.  Soak it all in before kickoff--because it's where you belong and it's where we spent 16 long, hard, years to get.  Remember all those who came before you that made the same sacrifices, gave their all, and never had the stage you're stepping onto this week.  Then, when time comes to line up for the kickoff, block it all out.  Focus all your energy and concentration on doing what you know has to be done for 60 minutes.


Time to build some momentum, men.  Gird your loins and prepare for battle!  The Frogs are comin' to Waco and aren't takin' any prisoners.  The rest of the stikin' college football world is about to find out just how special this team is!

#1905298 My son's first baseball game

Posted by TxFrog1999 on 15 February 2015 - 08:11 PM

A few of you were following us on Twitter this afternoon during the baseball game and have already seen this, but as a proud papa I thought I'd post a picture that summarizes the experience my 4yo son, Ian, had today at his first baseball game, not just at Lupton, but his first game ever:




The fans in front of us had a son about my daughter's age (9-11) and had the ball you see above from earlier in the day. When my son noticed it and asked about it the other boy gave it to him, noting he had several more at home from other TCU games—my son is currently curled up in bed with that ball. Following the game Ian lined up and ran the bases commenting afterwards that it was "so cool," and that this was "the best day ever!"


I love how baseball brings fathers and sons together. Glad the Boys of Summer are back. 


Woo Frogs!

I think we should hold all threads like these until teams are eliminated. Let's respect the baseball gods; they have been pretty kind to us this year.

#1890983 Chris Del Conte

Posted by FrogRunner91 on 23 January 2015 - 06:32 PM

A buddy of mine works for a major Univ. of Arizona booster ( personal wealth at $200m+). He was in town recently and visited CDC who gave him a tour of our facilities. Here's a few of his takeaways:
- said we have the finest football facilities he'd ever seen (pro or college)
- was blown away by the baseball stadium
- said a major group of boosters was devastated when CDC took this job because they really wanted him back in Tucson as the AD
- called CDC the best money-raiser he'd ever met
- asked CDC if he'd consider leaving and CDC asked why he would do that. He's got great coaches who have his back, a great school admin who have his back and an alumni base that is just lining up to fund every program on campus
- said CDC doesn't think we've even scratched the surface of our potential. All we've done is upgrade the facilities, now we can start actually concentrating on the on-field product

My buddy's boss said he walked away thinking we've got the perfect storm brewing in FW - the best AD in the country, the best coaches in the country and the best facilities he's ever seen.

Damn, I love CDC & GMFP.

All I can say is f%#k them, I hate them, and nothing, absolutely nothing was sweeter than watching them choke that game away over the last ten minutes. It made me smile, it made me laugh, it made me fire off text messages to all my friends on new years day and say "how freaking awesome was it to see those [Rod Gilmore]<#loes blow that game."

I never liked them, but this year set that permenatly in stone, I will go to my grave hating them, throw Tech, Aggie, and UT all together, and I hate Baylor with 1000% more passion, I despise them with everything I have.

All the s%#t they talked about us, the PR firm and how they totally tore down the confrence and made a mockery of our round-robin confrence play to the nation, how they tried to rewrite the rules book to favor themselves, how their jerk off coach was a complete assh^*e to the the commissioner of the big 12 when he was presented the big 12 co-championship trophy on a national stage, how his bi%<h [Rod Gilmore] whined and cried and said "Merica" when he had the chance to get in front of the camera and make his case. How their dumb a%% AD went on the radio and tried to spread all of his propaganda.

Head to head, but only when it dose not involve West Virginia, the bulls^%t dancing when they kickoff the ball, they way they teach their DB's to interfere with the reciver and dare the ref to call it. The fact that they are one of the most penalized teams in the country. The freaking Baylor line?????? Are you freaking kidding me??? The Baylor line?????

How they talked s^*t all game to Michigan State despite the fact they were blown out by UCF last year. The fact that they play nobody, absolutely nobody in non confrence, and that is 100% by design, than they turn around and try and justify it.

I Fuc^%ng hate them, and pretty sure everyone else in this thread dose as well. To that guy the other day that tried to extend the olive branch in a thread, dude, your no TCU fan, and if you claim to be, wake the f%^k up. Baylor, is the freaking enemy, there is no peace, there is no olive branch, there is no similarity between the two schools. They are everything I never want to be, they are everything I hope TCU never becomes.

So just in case I did not make it crystal clear in my post, just in case there is the slightest bit of uncertainty, let me make it 100% clear for myself, and for every true TCU fan.

F#%k Baylor, and #BaylorTears.............

DeShawn Raymond: Are you implying that you are also planning to commit to play for the Horned Frogs?

Shyheim Carter: You will soon find out
