Ex-Boyfriend serenaded at Wedding

I don't know what to say that already hasn't been said on this subject, but let the jokes start flowing.

GP Speaks, you listen

Just in case you don't get The Mtn, which I'm sure is a majority of you because they can't seem to get the darn thing even on Fort Worth's cable, they recently caught up with Coach Patterson to see how the summer is going for the Frogs.

Taking Inventory: Quarterbacks

As was the case a year ago, starting quarterback is thankfully not a question-mark for the Frogs as they head into the 2010 season.

That is, of course, because 5th-year senior Andy Dalton is already the school's all-time leading passer, and is tied for the school record for wins by a quarterback with Sammy Baugh. He completed 61.6% of his pass attempts for 2,756 yards last year to go along with 23 touchdowns (against just 8 interceptions), ranking 8th in the nation in passing efficiency. He also ran for 512 yards and three scores.

But even when you've got a Heisman candidate atop the depth chart behind center, you've always got to keep an eye on the future. And if starting quarterback is not a major question mark, then #2 quarterback definitely is. Just as they were going into spring practice, sophomore Yogi Gallegos and redshirt freshman Casey Pachall are the most likely to earn the job of Dalton's understudy. Pachall, who was a 4-star recruit coming out of Brownwood, has already been anointed as the heir apparent by many fans, but neither of these guys has claimed that job in the eyes of the coaching staff, at least publicly. Also returning is redshirt freshman Rick Settle, a walk-on who had a very successfull high school career in Kansas.

There are two true freshman at quarterback this year- Matt Brown and Sam Carter. Brown, who was a very highly thought-of high school quarterback at Allen, was committed to Arizona (his parents' alma mater) until just before Signing Day. Carter, who attended three different high schools, may also end up playing a number of different positions at TCU. He's currently listed at QB, but at 6'2", 205 and with exceptional athleticism, he could also play RB, WR or safety.
