HFF Tomlinson’s ‘Surreal’ Day for Career, Family

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

Sunday was a very special day for TCU Horned Frog Forever LaDainian Tomlinson and his wife LaTorsha. And for … LaBaby? The San Diego Chargers running back moved past Thurman Thomas and Franco Harris on the NFL all-time rushing list, running his total to 12,145 yards.

Better yet, he passed Marcus Allen to now rank behind only Jerry Rice and Emmett Smith on the all-time touchdown list. He’s at 146. And counting.

Best of all, however, was the message LT received before the game. Rick Gosselin of the Dallas Morning News tells the story.

ESPN, Nation Impressed With TCU Football, Fans

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

Even before TCU’s number four ranked football team dominated Utah Saturday night, ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit was impressed. Especially with  TCU’s fans.

After finishing the broadcast of GameDay before a rabid TCU fan base, Herbstreit said the energy from the fans was “as good as we’ve had.,” according to Richard Durrett at espndallas.com.

Durrett provides a good view of how the fans reacted to having ESPN on campus for several days. And he has several nice video clips, including a profile of All American Jerry Hughes, who shows how he utilizes his former-running-back speed to dominate at defensive end.

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

Clemson Favored by 3? Bet the Farm!

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

“Honey, I know you were planning on retiring to the farm eventually, but we might have a much bigger one by then, because I just bet it on the football game Saturday.

“The oddsmakers in Vegas have favored Clemson by three points over our Horned Frogs. The RPI ratings have TCU at number 6 and Clemson at 42. Now how does that translate into a 3-point victory for Clemson?”
