"Train Like LT" With Kimbo Slice

Dalton may face his former back-up


According to the Dallas Morning News, June Jones will start a true freshman at quarterback this fall. Never mind that Justin Willis already owns nearly every relevant school passing record, he is now apparently third-string behind Bo Levi Mitchell (who took over the reigns at Katy when Dalton graduated and was originally committed to Hawaii before Jones sold out) and Braden Smith (who, coincidentally, took over at Rockwall when former TCU QB Zak Eskridge graduated).

Right, this is what all those SMU donors and their blue-blooded Northern money wanted: an 18-year old kid being given the keys to one of the most complex offenses in the country. Ol' Junebug is a little more "Mad" than "Scientist" on this one.


Patterson's D + a child playing QB =

Arrieta leads US to victory


Former Frog Jake Arrieta pitched six scoreless innings and struck out seven as the US team throttled China 9-1. The game turned physical when China's catcher was knocked out of the game with a leg injury following a collision at home plate with the US's Matt LaPorta. China's pitching coach and reliever were later tossed after LaPorta was hit in the back of the head by a pitch in the 7th.

#8 Max Knake


TCU's all-time leader in most every passing category including: passing yards in a season, passing yards in a career, touchdowns in a season and touchdowns in a career. In 1994 Knake was named co-offensive player of the year in the SWC and his efforts helped earn the Frogs a share of the SWC title and their first bowl birth in 10 years.

Knake went on to have short stints in both the NFL and Arena Leagues.

Up next: A pro football hall of famer, and former Coors light spokesperson.
