One Month till the Spit Blood Countdown to Kickoff Golf Tournament

The golf tournament is one month from today on July 23 at Whitestone Golf Club in Benbrook. Again, it is a four man scramble being $100 per player. The $100 gets you the round, food after the round during the awards presentation, and some other goodies that we are working on. If you are planning to play then please go ahead and send your name in to thefinch@spitbloodtcu.com and pay using the link on the right side of this page. The deadline for us to get the final count to Whitestone is quickly approaching, so sign up ASAP. Tell anyone who think might be interested to sign up as well. If you want to play, but don't have a team or have less than four, don't worry about it. We will put you on a team or combine teams with less than 4.

We are working on some pretty cool prizes that will rival those given away from last year. And of course, don't you want the purple blazer? They will be on prominent display. Here is shot of the winners from last year sporting theirs.

This is before the jackets received their patches.

CFN Previews the 2011 Frogs

I'm still planning on posting the collegefootballnews.com scouting reports on each of TCU's 2011 opponents as they become available (although I doubt they do one for Portland State), but today the guys at CFN decided to post their preview of the Horned Frogs themselves. So I'll post their TCU stuff today instead of the New Mexico stuff that I was planning on posting, unless you'd rather hear about the Lobos? I thought so.

Frogs land a new kicker



Coach Patterson's staff has found their heir apparent to Ross Evans...and he's 6'3"! Jaden Oberkrom becomes the third player from Arlington Martin to commit to TCU in the past two years (following Deryck Gildon last year and joining Devonte Fields in the the Frogs' Class of 2012), so there is definitely a bit of a talent pipeline there! Now then, what are the odds that GP lets him wear #99 when he gets to TCU?

Erik Miller Signs with Cincinnati

Buh-bye

Junior starting pitcher/relief disaster Erik Miller will be taking his, ahem, "talents" to Cincinnati, or at least some low level crappy minor league affiliate. Looks like we will no longer have to see that raunchy porn stache on the mound in Fort Worth anymore. Obviously this isn't an underclassmen we are too concerned with, but best of luck to Erik in the future. Word of advice- learn how to get out lefties and maybe work on your warm-up routine if you're going to be a reliever. I can't speak for everyone, but I wont miss you too much. Here is the link.
