Caption This Contest

Whoever comes up with the best caption for this photo (according to me), will win 3 Spit Blood TCU Koozies which are already in production.

Here's the design:

This will be one side of the koozie with the other side simply having the web address in white. They are collapsible purple neoprene koozies. Frat.

Kerley OUT

Yeah, none of that this week.

Via Star-Telegram, Kerley will not be making the trip to Vegas. I'll take a brief pause while everyone lets out a collective F bomb....

Ok, I hope that helped. The good news is the team still scored 54 points in his absence this past week and Antoine Hicks filled in on Wild Frog plays and did a great job. In more good news, UNLV has a pretty poor pass defense, one of the worst in the country in fact, and Jimmy Luxury Tax Young will be more than happy to introduce himself. The bad news is not only is UNLV a better team than Wyoming, their offense is also far less anemic than a lot of the ones we've seen this season, so on the off chance that they catch our D off guard, the offense is going to have to step up and make some plays. Also, this also means we will have to use a new holder on field goals and PATs which may not sound like a big deal, but from what I understand the relationship between the kicker and the holder is very important from a trust standpoint and with Ross Evans having a few shaky performances this year, we need all the consistency we can get. Is Kerley's absence back breaking enough to cost us this game? No, and I'm all for him resting up and getting ready for Utah, but it's still a big loss and the team is going to have to adjust accordingly.
