Why TCU loses nearly every recruiting battle vs UT, OU, A$M, LSU, BAMA, GEORGIA, etc

  1. Lets get real here. Frogs just lost a very highly ranked Safety recruit Jerrin) to UT and is about to lose a WR recruit to UT also (Quinton). Both were thought to be leaning TCU at one time.
    When up against UT and other big schools TCU very rarely wins. Even when discussing DEs whereby TCU just put 2 of them into the NFL. You will immediately scream “WHAT ABOUT SYLVESTER YOU DOPE”.
     
  2. I'm visiting Fort Worth for the first time in about a decade next month. Is Kincaid's still open? I've been craving one of their hamburgers for years.
     
  3. Yes and Kincaid's has branched out to other locations.
     
  4. If you ever find yourself in west Arlington, stop by the little S&S cheesesteak shack on Pioneer just west of Cooper. Great cheesesteaks and surprisingly phenomenal burgers.

You may be interested to know that Sylvester is seriously considering his options - I’ll leave it at that.

    Why would a DE not come to TCU ? Why would a Safety not pick TCU ? Why would a OLINEMAN not be standing in line to get into TCU with all the recent OLINEMEN TCU has sent to the League ?

    HERE IS THE ANSWER FOLKS :

    1) when recruits visit UT, OU, LSU, A$M, etc and ten visit tiny little TCU the Frog program appears very small time in comparison. Small stadium, small campus, small student body. Everything at TCU screams “small time”. You can’t fool Mother Nature and you can’t fool recruits. TCU is small and everything about TCU is small. And it is OBVIOUS to recruits !! The difference is stunning to recruits who have already visited big time programs. Going 50/50 vs UT innfootball wins will never change that perception.

    2) Patterson and Kelsey do a spectacular job recruiting, which allows TCU to get about 1 out of 50 highly ranked recruits. Without Gary and Kelsey TCU would totally whiff.

    3) only a National Championship would change the recruiting landscape for TCU. A mere league title won’t do it. Kansas won a League title in football a while back and what good did that do ? Kansas St has won one before too. Doesn’t mean a thing. Kids just consider a League title to be a fluke if a small school wins it. National Championship is totally different though. League title would not change TCUs recruiting.

    4) Heres the rub - you cannot hope to win a National Championship with a #45 recruiting class in the nation. Never gonna happen. The system is rigged in favor of the big blue blood schools and it’s obvious to recruits.

    Please honestly tell me what chance P5 schools like Purdue, Wake, Duke, Tcu, Indiana, Northwestern, Illinois, BC, Rutgers, Wvu, Vandy, Ore St, etc have to win a National Championship when they can’t recruit even a Top 20
    in the country recruit class. ANSWER -
    ZERO CHANCE !!

    Which is why every single year the title favorites are only the Top 10 recruiting class schools (BAMA, OSU, CLEM, OU, LSU, GEORGIA, PED ST, MICH, FLORIDA, AUBURN, USC, etc)


    And now start looking for A$M to be in that blue blood discussion since thEIR SEC membership has skyrocketed their recruiting - which has also unfortunately pushed TCUs in state recruiting to an even worse level (though TCUs out of state recruiting has saved Frog recruiting from total disaster).

    BOTTOM LINE:
    TCU appears very small time to recruits when they compare to UT, BAMA, Ohio St, OU, LSU, A$M facilities. And it doesn’t matter how many players TCU puts into the NFL. And it Doesn’t matter if TCU gets lucky one year out of the past 30 yrs and happens to win one League title. Only 4 stars who come to TCU are kids who like small time things which is a tiny minority.

    Would take a cataclysmic event (National Champ) to change that.

    You also believe in the Easter Bunny if you think a #45 in the country recruit class = National Championship.

    No team in past 20 yrs (maybe ONE exception) has won a NC without a Top 10 recruit class.
     
  6. Sucks to lose out on these battles

  8. Not as small as your popsicle.
     
  9. This is true, but the near-century of grease on the griddle at the original location means it's still the one to go to.
     
  10. I have to say I am happy to see that Wendy's has brought back the spicy chicken nuggets.

  12. Seriously you want a better burger in the same style go to Charley's on Granbury Road. Make sure you schedule time for a nap after.
     
  13. In & Out is a novelty. I'm already over it. Ask yourself this question: you can only go to one of these two places for the rest of your life, which do you choose? For me it's Whataburger by a mile.
     
  14. Fred's, Hopdoddy, and 5 Guys all beat Kinkaids in my humble opinion.

  16. It must be agonizingly lonely in Wyoming this time of the year.
     
  17. What a pathetic, steaming pile...

    Nothing like exercising the "ignore" button. Adios...
