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.

ESPN GameDay at TCU

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

ESPN GameDay finally decided it was time to highlight the TCU Horned Frogs, the team playing the best all around football in the NCAA. Nationally the Frogs are ranked 4th in every poll including the BCS. Friend of The HornedBlog, Bob Goode, took some pix the day before the game as ESPN The Roadies were setting up their traveling city.

See the full post, with more pix, more about Bob Goode, and mentions of TCU’s first two national championships, at The TCU Horned Blog.

TCU Rescinds Henson’s Degree

Posted by KilgoreTroutIII

BREAKING NEWS: TCU has rescinded the degree previously presented to Robert Henson, former All-MWC linebacker now on the Washington Redskins roster. The university cited Mr. Henson’s series of 52 Twitter postings following the Redskins’ “game” against the Rams Sunday as reported in this front page story in the Washington Post.

“TCU has been embarrassed too much by Mr. Henson’s behavior,” said Associate Chancellor Ben Downtoolong. “We can understand a lack of forethought by his tweeting disrespectfully to the fans who indirectly pay his salary — a salary which is already in excess of anyone on the TCU staff with the exception of the volleyball coach and all other coaches in our athletic department.

Take Two

Posted by SuckaFish

Everybody and their mother has a mediocre blog by now. We’re better than that. We’ve created a network of six mediocre blogs. SWAGLESS will be the hub and will run its own content and posts from the other five. So what the hell are they? Who knows what will happen but for now SWAGLESS is where we’ll make obnoxious comments about the worlds of sports and entertainment. Here’s a quick rundown of the others:

Surrounded by ‘Skins: I’m a Cowboys fan living outside Washington, DC. I’ll post about the ‘Boys, mock the ‘Skins and their fans, and anything else happening in the league.

Route 1 to Lot 1: It’s all about the Maryland Terrapins. Everything from how much weight the Fridge has lost since last season to how much weight the Fridge will gain this season.

Natinals Natin: Counting down the years till Strasburg saves us all.

Stop Throwing Hats: Following the Washington Capitals, the two-time MVP, and the whiny bastards on every other team in the league.

The TCU Horned Blog: Perhaps the only blog based on the east coast covering TCU sports.
