EDSBS

I feel like the tens of people that read our site regularly likely also read EDSBS so you may have noticed that during the off season they have guest bloggers answer questions about their teams. Well, I talked to Spencer (the head honcho) about submitting something for spitblood and he gave me the go ahead so I filled out his questionnaire and sent it back. Might get posted. Probably won't. Regardless, if you're flipping through EDSBS in the next couple of weeks and see something that links to spitblood, hopefully others will see it and get our site a little exposure. Either way, it'll be good for some condescension in the comments section. If it gets posted I'll update this post and link it over.

#26 LaMarcus McDonald


The captain of the 2002 CUSA Championship team, LaMarcus dominated the 2002 season. In '02 alone he led the team with 118 tackles, 8.5 sacks, and 30 TFLs. The 120 yards lost on those 30 TFLs broke the school record which had previously been held by Aaron Schobel. LaMarcus is second all time in Yards Lost Tackling in a career with 236.

After his standout '02 season LaMarcus was honored by the conference as first-team All-CUSA and Defensive Player of the Year. He also was named second-team All-American by the AP, and first team All-American by College Football News. LaMarcus also received the Rogers Trophy in '02 which is awarded to the TCU MVP.

Up next:
This bayou native led the team in INTs and tackles during his senior year, but he is forever engraved in Frogdom for one play, and one play only.

TCU Basketball Lands Top Player From Michigan

TCU head men's basketball coach Jim Christian announced on Tuesday (June 17) that Detroit standout Kavon Rose (Detroit, Mich./Finney H.S.) has joined the Horned Frogs' program and will join the roster for the upcoming 2008-09 campaign.

"We're extremely excited about the signing of Kavon," said Christian. "He comes from a very strong high school program at Finney and is a very athletic, intelligent and versatile player. We believe that he is going to be a tremendous asset to our program and is a welcome addition to the roster...full article

Here is what ESPN had to say about him:
This smooth slashing scorer reminds some in the Detroit area of former UNLV guard Anderson Hunt, a Detroit native. Rose is a slightly undersized two guard that can flat out put the ball in the basket. He's best as a pick-your-lane slasher that gets to the rim on relentless attacks to the basket. He shoots a ton of free throws because you must foul him to stop him. His jumper from deep runs hot and cold, but when hot he can really be a handful to stop.

Rose put in a letter of intent to play at Oregon State, he was then released from the letter. He was then considering Colorado, Dayton, Western Michigan and Creighton. I don't know what Christian did to get him to sign a letter of intent to TCU, maybe the promise that he will start as a freshman and be the best player on the team.
