Thanks but no thanks, Tennessee

From ESPN Dallas:

"TCU coach Gary Patterson has not had any contact with Tennessee officials and has no plans to meet with them, he said Wednesday night through the TCU media relations department."

Read the rest of the story HERE.

Word is Patterson wanted the Tennessee job, but was afraid of what might happen to him if he ever decided to leave Knoxville...I'm kidding of course, chalk up Tennessee (again) on the list of jobs deemed not worthy of leaving Fort Worth for by GP.

Good watchin'

Like what you see here?

Most of the time on highlight videos of defenders- especially defensive tackles- it's pretty tough to tell if the kid is really that good at all or not. I guess that's because to the untrained eye, linemen always just look like they're standing up and hugging each other. That's clearly not the case in TCU commit David Johnson's highlight tape above.

The best news? He's reported to have graduated HS early and will be at TCU for spring practice.

UT fans hate America and Jesus

As if you needed another reason to HATE UT, UT T-shirt fans have been linked to terrorism. Its just unAmerican.


Yes, ladies and gentlemen, that is Texas' one and only, Colt McCoy proposing to former Baylor track star, and all around hottie, Rachel Glandorf. I wonder if she knew what was coming when they showed up at the stadium alone, and Colt decided to take a casual stroll out to the 50 yard line?

Still Can't Talk About Football

But at least we are getting good press about our ladies. If I lived in Maryland, I would totally listen to these guys. The video is a little lame, but commentary is what matters.

On a side note. For those of you I didn't already tell. When I was driving back from Phoenix, still in a dazed dream like (nightmare like) state, I saw something that was just the icing on the cake. It slowly started to appear on the side of the road when I was about 2 hours outside of Phoenix on I-10. I saw what appeared to be an 18 wheeler on the side of the road. As I got a little closer I saw what appeared to be the TCU schedule on the back of the 18 wheeler. No, I said to myself, that can't be. Then as I got closer I realized it was our equipment truck broken down on the side of the road (see my post here on what it looks like). As if my pride had not not already been on an all time low, seeing the equipment truck broken down in the middle of nowhere was the final insult. And for those of you interested, the driver was not there. I guess he had already got a ride into town or something. If he had been there I would have helped him out, in return for a procombat jersey of course, and our running game which must have been hidden in there somewhere.
