Q&A with Schlossnagle

The 11th-ranked baseball team, less than two weeks from their February 19th season opener against Sam Houston State, held their annual Alumni Game this past weekend (although strangely, there wasn't a write up of it in the Star-Telegram or on gofrogs.com) There was some discussion of the game over on the Eastern Bloc, but if you value the opinion of the head coach more than the posters on that site, here is a Q&A with head coach Jim Schlossnagle.

Texas Tech: Cheaters

With most of the sports media caught up in the Super Bowl hoopla surrounding this guy's favorite team, everyone's favorite semi-legitimate college to the west decided it would be the perfect time to finally go public with the fact that they've been breaking the NCAA's recruiting rules. It doesn't look like they'll get in much trouble, and I guess they shouldn't really- I mean, wouldn't you take a few liberties with the rules if your job was to convince kids to move to Lubbock, TX?

Schieffer reps the Frogs

On the Super Bowl Sunday edition of "Face the Nation", which was broadcast from Miami, TCU alum Bob Schieffer reacted to criticism regarding broadcasting from the site of the game. As part of his explanation, he offered: "I don't even follow pro football that closely. My interest in the game starts and stops with my college team, the TCU Horned Frogs who, in case you missed it, had a pretty fair team last year."

New Face gets Frogs back in Win Column

Led by JUCO transfer guard Greg Hill's career-high 23 points (including seven three-pointers), the Frogs got back into the win column after having dropped their previous four by picking up just their second road victory of the year with a 65-51 win at Air Force. Tuffy Moss also added 18 points and 8 assistesseses.

If the words "road victory" look funny in the same sentence with "TCU", it's because this is definitely not an every day occurrence. In fact, with their first conference road win of the season, the Frogs have equaled a program record for road wins in a season in the MWC. That's right...this is the most they've ever won.
