What Was That Purple Blur? And Where’s My Jock?

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

Jeremy Kerley confirmed his ticket to the NFL with this punt return for the TCU Horned Frogs in their 44-6 win over Colorado State Saturday. This clip doesn’t show it, but a lot of Rams were looking around for their jocks after they pulled their embarrassed butts off the turf.

Horned Frogs Rise to #11 AP; #10 Coaches Poll

Once again, the nation, including The New York Times is taking notice of the TCU Horned Frogs and other possible BCS busters:


….In fact, Houston, Texas Christian and Boise State are not going anywhere. For the first time in the Bowl Championship Series era, teams from outside the six so-called power conferences can be considered legitimate threats for the national title.

Urban Meyer Hates His Players, Has No Soul

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

Need any more reasons to not like Urban Meyer? Or obsessed football coaches in general? Meyer is straightforward in stating that his job and career are more important than the health and safety of his players and coaches.

In a New York Times article about Tim Tebow going to the hospital in an ambulance after a hard hit to the head during the game yesterday, his flulike symptoms during the week, and as many as 35 players being ill recently, here’s how concerned Meyer was. Not.

Meyer said earlier in the week there was no chance he would rest sick players.

“That’d be one of the major errors in coaching history to go do that, because you’d go lose,” he said. “No. Absolutely not. We’re going to bring everything and go as hard as we can. That gets you out of the profession, those kind of thoughts. You go as hard as you can.”

Nats Reach a Double-Triple With 100th Loss

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

For the second straight year the Natinals have lost more than 100 games, reaching the 100 mark Thursday and 101 Friday night to move within one of last year’s 102. They are only the fourth team in 25 years to accomplish the double-triple.

But have heart, struggling Nats fans. The Devil Rays lost 100 in 2001 and 106 in 2002. Six years later, after coming to Jesus and renaming themselves the Rays, they made it to the World Series in 2008.
