People are ao negative. I bet it sucks to go through life pointing out what everybody else is doing wrong!

That pic of Russell Wilson's soon to be ex wife reminded me of a certain moment in KFC history

Y'all are hilarious. Boykin goes 71% completion, 320 yds passing, 2 passing TDs, 29 rushing yds, 1 rushing TD, 0 turnovers, and you're going to fire up some "I still have concerns/why didn't Joeckel play more" thread? Yeesh. We would've killed for 3/4 of that production last year. Then, Joeckel comes in and goes 50%, although it was only 8 attempts, with a pick 6 and we're still looking for more of that? I think it's just time for some of you to realize that Boykin got most of the PT tonight for a reason... he's our best QB. Quit darning [2314ing] and support the guy.

You are more than welcome here! However, the rules must be followed.
You also will not be given the "benefit of the doubt" on here. You are essentially a guest. If you can't take the heat....then leave. But if you choose to attack our posters, students, coaches & University in general....it will not be tolerated. Debate without degrading comments towards TCU & it's fans, are welcomed. Anything else will not work. Might seem unfair, but that is how it is going to work around here.
I'm also asking our posters not to attack our visitors. If they break the rules, report them & we will take care of business.

The only part of the tweet that I understood at all.

I've been to both games this season and a bunch of games over my life. TCU has an awesome gameday atmosphere. We need to stop complaining about the fans in the seats. It is what it is. Frog Alley, the housing around TCU, tailgates in the north and west were all great. Tons of energy and people having a great time. The bars on university were hopping.The band, cheer squads, pre-game intros all awesome. There were a ton of people milling around in the concourse area and inside the club section. The only problem TCU has is that it doesn't have LSU size number of alums, but our alums are very potent. I went to the LSU home game during TCU's off week. They shared with me it takes approximately 180,000-195,000 fans to fill their 105,000 stadium. Shockingly, even SEC schools also enjoy the tailgating scene on the weekend with their friends and family. If we want a 45,000 stadium full plan on trying to get at least 65,000 people partying at the tailgates. TCU shows up in force at our bowl games, Jerry World games, home sports events, and NCAA playoffs. What we don't have in numbers, we have in potency. It's okay. We sound loud on tv (when we kickoff you hear the 'T-C-U.... FROGS!" and are welcoming to opposing fans to Fort Worth. There were so many Minnesota fans that were saying they were having an awesome time in Fort Worth and on our campus. That's a huge plus for attracting future fans to visit. All these complaints are wasted energy and not productive for athletics marketing and opposing coaches using your material as weapons for future recruits to sell against TCU. TCU is big time football in a big time football atmosphere. Instead of wasting this energy on complaining, my suggestion would be to purchase more tickets and load your cars and pack the stadium with more of your friends or buy seats that TCU athletics can donate to families in the community. I try to bring someone new to TCU every home game. Everyone I've brought always has a great time and walks away saying how impressed the game day atmosphere is. These are SEC and ACC alums. Long story short, it's easy to complain, instead please use this energy to figure out how many car fulls of fans you can bring to the next series of home and away games.

Ok amigos, I know several of you have been asking about any updates I may have on Bleed.
All friends and family have been notified and his condition is no secret.
As you all know, Bleed and his family (wife, 4 year old boy and 9 month old daughter) were enjoying the last day of a family vacation to Aspen. Bleed began to complain of a headache and symptoms you might see with food poisoning. As the symptoms got worse and worse, he eventually was able to let his wife know that he needed medical care.
It was quickly determined that he was having brain trauma and he was airlifted from Aspen to Denver. We've been told Bleed had a hemorrhagic stroke in his cerebellum. (Tcudoc can tell you a bit more about this, he's been a great help to me throughout this ordeal.) He had surgery shortly after arriving at the hospital in Denver to address the large blood clot he had in the back of his head. Extremely high blood pressure seems to be the main culprit here.
He is currently still in the critical care unit in Denver. He is not conscious and is on a ventilator. However, the swelling in his brain is going down as time progresses. The swelling needs to go down more before they can accurately tell us if the brain has sustained any damage.
Tcudoc, and the Docs up in Denver told us originally that 7-10 days was our window to see some kind of progress. Things were touch and go for a while there with no real progress, but recently the blood pressure has gone down and stabilized, the swelling is slowly going down and yesterday, on day 10, Bleed opened his eyes a few times.
It's going to be a long road to recovery, hopefully, and he'll need all the support/vibes/prayers he can get.
Like I said before, Bleed wouldn't want the sanctuary that is HASMSP to turn into some pity party. As long as I have known him he has always been the one to laugh the loudest and keep things positive when boatstorms arise. I've kept my spirits high by thinking about and telling funny Bleed stories and I literally have an endless supply of them.
I wanted to let you guys (and Q) know what was up, but for the most part I will not be posting updates and whatnot here. It's not fair to darn up this thread and bum people out, especially those that only know him as a screen name. I understand there may be some chatter or questions today, which our resident docs can probably answer, but after today just PM me if you are thinking of him and want to know of any updates.
Thanks again to everyone in the HASMSP crew that has been thinking about him and praying for him.

Geezer, what does a Qatarian richard taste like?
Sorry, PPD, I have absolutely no idea.
Perhaps you could find a user review on Angie's List to help you before you try it.
BTW, my visit was made a week in advance of a SecDef visit to accept the Emir's offer to base 10K American troops at Al Udeid Air Base--a multi-billion dollar facility the Qatari's built, paid for, and gave to the US to use at no cost for as long as we wanted to use it.
So, the only metaphoric physical contact would be the Qatari's kissing American arses.
And you, PPD, can kiss mine.

Check out some of the quotes in this article... I like this kid already:
“The biggest recruiting message I can give is more of a warning,” Wooten told 247Sports. “I would warn recruits that TCU is not going to be a place for just anyone looking for a free ride. If you’re selfish or mediocre then stay away. TCU football is only for those who have determination and have something to prove.”

Agreed. Let's pump the brakes on the Nomo comparison
Nomo was on another level here for a while. Like I almost feel like in 15-20 years they will be doing a 30 for 30 on Nomo. You've seen the story a million times but it never gets old; meteor fast rise to the top from virtual obscurity, the insane potential everyone around him at the time saw for even more brilliance, and of course the disappearance that no one around him at the time, could quite explain or put their finger on where the wheels fell off.
Foap will be interviewed in his family room with no less than 3 cats on his lap, oil painting renditions of their most famous advertisements on the wall behind him.
Swanson will be interviewed standing over a washer board at the Baytown Washer Invitational. He and the Mexican hosted the kickoff dinner the night before, which is tradition for the previous years Couples Champs. First course was Ron's famous Chicken Tortilla Soup. The dessert, Mexican Banana Flambe of course.
Riggs will be at the lake house, front poorch, rocking chair, no less than 8 Miller Lite's crushed during the 3 minute segment he does. Another 8 sit crushed at is feet 15 minutes later as the camera crew decides to shoot some "B-Roll/Filler Footage" of him looking off in the distance.
They'll ask a serious of questions to an empty chair, of course getting no response and we'll all know that they tried to interview Tron.
Bleed will show up 20 pages late for the interview and they will end up playing a voicemail he left for the producers of the show. It sounds disheveled and veers in and out of several topics. When you play it back on the dvr a second time you do hear that he mentions Nomo in there once. It's faint, but it's there.
PPD/Purple Overalls and I couldn't be reached for comment. Poco Bueno Fishing Tournament.

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.
