  1. TCU football will go through spring practices with one scholarship QB healthy

    By Drew Davison

    TCU will have just one scholarship quarterback available when spring practices begin later this month.

    Coach Gary Patterson mentioned that sophomore Max Duggan will be the only available arm with other scholarship QBs Matthew Baldwin and Matthew Downing battling injuries.

    “This spring we’ll only have one scholarship quarterback that will actually be able to run practice,” Patterson said during a news conference on Wednesday. “So we need to get some quarterbacks in.”

  2. This is such a big, stupid problem that it’s funny. How did we get here?

  3. Injuries.
     
  4. I thought the kid from ICCC was coming into campus?

    Did he not enroll in the spring?

    Summer?
     
  5. Unfortunately the summer. Would have been great to have him in Spring Ball to get acclimated and also only 1 healthy QB. We have shown a tendency to bring on QB's with injuries - Rogers, Baldwin, and Williams.

  7. It’s completely inexcusable.
     
  8. so..... downing is now on scholarship?

    the rest is a continued story line that has gotten way beyond tiresome.

    spring game will be a throwback game with both sides running the single wing
     
  9. Transfer Portal?

  10. Wait, was Baldwin injured when he got here? What happened to Downing?

    This is getting to be a norm.
     
  11. don't remember the the specifics, but if i recall he had a knee that needed some clean up and i guess now a back.

    not sure how much practice time he got last fall and again someone feel free to correct me, but i don't think he has been healthy while he has been in ft worth.
     
  12. Guessing he was not injured before he got here?
     
  13. I heard they have already hired some locums QB's to fill in the gaps. It will be expensive but worth it. I have heard Uncle Rico has been rumored to be one of them but I cannot confirm. They are also looking at these:

    Also, if the wide receiver play does not improve, I have heard we will have golf carts running some routes.
    It is an exciting time to be a TCU fan.

  14. First of all, better detective work, as Rogers, Baldwin, and Williams all had injury problems prior to TCU. Tough to overcome 3 in a row of damaged goods.
     
  15. I don't think that's how the Talking Heads song goes

  17. curious how much access a program has to the medical records of a recruit, but in the case of rogers and williams they had the knee injuries that ended their senior seasons and required surgery.

    rogers was a catastrophic injury, but even if williams was a "simple acl" we are still talking roughly a year or more before he is back to physical form and more importantly he lost a year of development.

    baldwin's issue with the knee goes back to lake travis and here are links to three articles that show the knee had been an issue from part of the 2017 season until last summer.

    we all know that once a kid gets behind the purple curtain you rarely get the full story via the conventional news sources or a site like this and those who truly do know respect the wishes of the program and just don't tell the story.

    heck, if i recall correctly tony wallace had some surgical procedure last spring or summer and it was why he wasn't ready last year and the team did not know about it until he showed up on campus.
     
    Salfrog and 4th. down like this.
  18. and Robinson - he originally hurt is shoulder in High School and never got it fixed. He was able to play through it then because it wasn't as bad and he wasn't getting hit by guys that weighed 300+ consistently.

  19. Still glad we honored Rogers scholarship. We kept our word. Hope it works out for him.
     
  20. Maybe Kill can help us on this. I'm beginning to believe with all the things outside of actually coaching football, GP is very busy with TCU side events and then now, he's president of AFCA.

    Time to call in Chief Inspector Clouseau.
