Dwight Smith Video

After reading SWW's post and hearing the hype, I had to finally look at some highlights of this guy. I don't know if this has been posted already but here is one. He is #22 in red. Check out the stiff arm at 0:54 and the speed at 2:18. Crazy sick.

TCU-SMU on ESPN- Friday, September 24th

The SMU-Tech game being moved to September 5th has indeed shifted the TCU-SMU game. It will now be played Friday, September 24th and will be broadcast on ESPN, according to...ESPN. This now means that the Frogs' 4th OOC game, whoever it ends up being against, will most likely be on September 11th.

Frogs vs. Oral Roberts tonight

The 12-2, 4th-ranked Horned Frogs hit the road tonight, heading up to Tulsa to take on Oral Roberts at 6:30 this evening. Temperatures are expected to drop into the 40s as the Frogs try to make up some ground in the overall series with ORU, which the Golden Eagles currently lead 25-14.

No word yet on who will be starting for the Frogs tonight, although Greg Holle has been handling the midweek duties so far this year. If he can continue to pitch like he did against UTA last week (7 K's, just 2 hits in 5 innings), he'll give the Frogs a 4th solid starter and will bode well for their upcoming midweek games against A&M, Baylor and OU.

SMU-Tech rescheduled; could affect TCU-SMU

SMU's season opener against Texas Tech has been moved from it's original date of September 4th to Sunday, September 5th to accommodate a national TV broadcast on ESPN. This could affect the Frogs' schedule, as they are scheduled to play at SMU the following week. The word on the street was that the TCU-SMU game might be moved to Thursday or Friday night to be on one of the ESPN networks, but that would now mean an extra-short week for the Ponies.
