- Being removed from the Pete Dye Golf Club and asked never to return. From a golf course! Without raging drunks looking to escape their bleak lives for 4 hours a week and get blind drunk with the boys and sexually harass the cart girls, golf would not exist in this country. They WANT you to drink. Quite a feat, Holgorsen
- In 2008 while the OC at Cougar High, the Coogs were upset on national television by Marshall on the road, a game you may remember mostly for one of the Houston receivers having his leg disintegrated by a poorly placed band cart. Apparently after the game Holgorsen took his talents to the Union Pub and Grill where he got into a bit of a disagreement with the ESPN crew as well as some locals. Holgorsen was "asked to leave," which, as we all know from being in college, means "throw the F out."
- Most recently, Holgorsen was "asked to leave" the Mardi Gras Casino in Cross Lanes, WV at 3:20AM after apparently becoming intoxicated to the point that he was no longer welcome. Again, much like golf, without raging drunks looking to escape their bleak lives for a few hours/days, get drunk with the boys and sexually harass the help, legalized gambling would not exist in this country. And as a kicker, casinos WANT you to get drunk and spend your money. They invite it. Why do you think they wait to serve you free drinks until AFTER you've started playing? Why do you think the pit boss sics the whores on a hot shooter, trying to drive him away? BECAUSE DRUNK WOMANIZERS MEAN BIG BUCKS FOR THE HOUSE! Again, quite a feat to get kicked out of a casino, Dana.

What's the downside to having a school-record eight players drafted by Major League teams? The fact that six of those eight still have eligibility remaining, and whether or not they return will have a major impact on the direction that next year's team will take. The same double-edged sword applies to recruiting high school and junior college players, because they are also eligible to be drafted...so you end up having to recruit a huge chunk of your roster a second (or third or fourth) time over the summer. That's not easy, since the clubs that drafted them are offering cold, hard cash- and large sums of it for those drafted in the early rounds. Sometimes selling a kid on the college experience and the chance to play in Omaha over a paycheck is like trying to convince an egotistical, mental midget freak athlete to stay and win a championship for his hometown instead of riding the coattails of another superstar in a city with more bottle service and fake breasts. But I digress...
Joining the six current Horned Frogs that can decide to stay or go (Matt Purke, Kyle Winkler, Taylor Featherston, Jason Coats, Erik Miller and Kaleb Merck) are eight potential future Frogs that also heard their names called in the draft. They are:
-Kyle Crick, a pitcher from Sherman picked 49th overall by the Giants
-Kevin Cron, a baseman/catcher from Phoenix picked 92nd overall by the Mariners
-Tyler Collins, an outfielder from Howard College picked 197th overall by the Tigers
-Cody Anderson, a pitcher from Feather River JC picked 428th overall by the Indians
-Jerrick Suiter, a pitcher from Valparaiso, Indiana picked 1,069th overall by the Blue Jays
-Derek O'Dell, a shortstop from Canyon picked 1,282nd overall by the Red Sox
-Kevin Cornelius, a shortstop from Weatherford picked 1,289th overall by the Yankees
-Brandon Finnegan, a pitcher from Fort Worth (Southwest) picked 1,374th overall by the Rangers
Obviously, the earlier they were picked, the higher chance that they'll never make it to campus. We'll keep an eye on all of the current and potential future Horned Frogs that were drafted over the course of the summer to see whether or not they sign with their respective pro teams or decide to be a part of TCU baseball in 2012. The deadline for them to sign is August 15th, so look for a large portion of the news to come closer to that date.
