    kid looks much better than Pete Thomas to me. Adequate arm. Good feet. Sees the field and making good decisions at TCU. Burned his redshirt last year to play midway thru season as true freshman due to Thomas injury. Sort of like Tyler did......

    If I am CSU, Pete Thomas has become a back-up. This kid doesn't have as strong an arm as Thomas and isn't as big but he is big enough, has a strong enough arm, and does everything much quicker and more fluidly.

    I'm watching on delay and he just threw a bad pick. But still, true freshman playing on the road at TCU. He gives them more options imo.

    Is Thomas saving himself for the combine? Luck goes 1, but Pete will be up there somewhere.

    I think he is a true Frosh. Grayshirted, enrolled spring this season. The plan was for him to RS this year to put 2 years between him and Thomas. Don't think its going to matter now. He's a better QB than Thomas.

    A lot depends on who the coach is next year. CSU will have both QBs coming back and Knowke coming back plus some young recievers. They will still suck though because they lose O-linemen and don't have much quality depth there. Also they will still be small and weak on the D-line and have no depth at LB.

    Grayson>>>>Thomas. CSU actually has good young talent. TE Gilmore, RB Nwoke, DE Capi, C Richburg would all start for us next year. Barrett is pretty good too. All sophs

    Good chance, they can't afford to fire him.

    Fairchild scripted a good first series against TCU, with lots of misdirection. Ultimately CSU couldn't capitalize on any scoring opportunities. The rams are undisciplined and heavily penalized for stupid mistakes. Grayson looked better than Pachell, and was the better QB this day. But TCU's passing game was pretty much nonexistent.

    The frogs came put flat, and did not look like a ranked team that just beat Boise on the road.

    The new TCU stadium isn't finished yet. 38,000 was in attendence. When complete, the stadium should fit 55,000. I don't see them filling the joint with TCU fans. But with the B12 inference change, the place will fill up with Sooners and Longhorns.

    The TCU stadium video boards and sound system are pretty good, as is the new athletic facilities on the south side of the stadium. It's not Okie Lite good, but still solid.

    However, the TCU gameday atmosphere is weak. The energy in Folsom, even with our losing program is way better than the atmosphere at Amon Carter. I heard no profanity and saw no drunken behavior. Instead I saw lots of designer cowboy boots and jiggly biceps, like the cafeteria lady has. The police presence in Ft Worth was absurd, as are the surveillance cameras all over the stadium. And the fan have a zoloft-like sense of passion. The two finger mass clawing (SWC handsignal) is mockworthy. The one player who stood out on either team is TCU LB Tank Carder, who had a Dizon like presense, making a pic 6 and was in on a lot of tackels.

    I'm glad I got to finally see a game in Ft Worth. It was fun mocking the Rams and soaking in the purple grape jelly atmosphere of this wealthy religious Texas campus. But no matter how bad CU is right now, I'm much happier being a CU Buff season ticket holder than a Frog.

    Nope. If there's one team I can say with confidence we would beat it's the sheep.

    Fairchild had Hawkins in his camp for a couple of days this year and met with him for "advice" during that time. It must have worked because if any team shows signs of the Hawkins influence getting stronger it is the Sheep. For the third year in a row they got off to a fairly strong start and high hopes only to see it come crashing down and the team go into full scale quit mode.

    If we played them this week, despite all our problems I would expect at least a 21 point CU win.

    CSU played their best game of the year behind the hope of a new QB, TCU played like they didn't want to be there following their big, emotional win over Boise, and the game wasn't anywhere near as close as the score indicated.
