Browns currently have two top 15 picks

Published: Monday, October 23, 2017 @ 3:17 PM

The Browns fans didn’t want to be watching draft position heading to week 8, but here they are.

Cleveland is 0-7 and sits in position for the No. 1 pick. The Browns drafted Myles Garrett with the top pick a year ago.

The Browns have two first-rounders, thanks to the Texans trading up for Deshaun Watson. That’d currently be No. 15, but Watson’s performance thus far indicates it’ll end up higher.

The Browns will once again be in position to add an elite talent, plus the additional pick.

Report: Oregon commit Spencer Webb ‘solid’ with Ducks after visit

Published: Monday, January 22, 2018 @ 6:14 PM

In a report by Andrew Nemec of  The Oregonian,  Oregon Ducks recruiting commit Spencer Webb has doubled down with his choice of schools after visiting Eugene this weekend.

From  The Oregonian:

After this weekend’s official visit to Oregon, Webb is done with the recruiting process.

He is not only solid to Oregon, but also believes Eugene is a perfect fit, listing the reasons in a written response Monday morning.

“They really have everything I’m looking for – close to home, roster I can compete early, the best facilities, SEC strength and conditioning, pro-style offense with wrinkles, football school, sports-first campus, great academic support and (I) really like the coaches.”

Webb, a 4-star tight end out of Sacramento, California according to 247sports, originally committed to Oregon in April 2017.

His commitment hedges the decommitments of five 4-star wide receivers after Willie Taggart departed for Florida State.

TCU student section sets school record against West Virginia

Published: Monday, January 22, 2018 @ 6:10 PM

tcu student section-tcu-west virginia-jamie dixon

It seems the TCU student section didn’t take too kindly to the Horned Frogs dropping out of the AP Top 25.

The Horned Frogs’ student section set a record for attendance on Monday night when TCU took on West Virginia. According to athletic director Jeremiah Donati, more student tickets were scanned for that game than any other in school history.

Home court advantage certainly seems to be paying off for TCU. At the time of this posting, the Horned Frogs hold a 68-50 lead over the No. 7 Mountaineers with 4:52 left in the game.

The TCU student body has had to witness some seriously subpar basketball in recent years. With the resurgence of Horned Frogs hoops under Jamie Dixon, it’s no surprise that students are turning out in droves to support their school.

And if the Frogs keep pulling off upsets like tonight’s win, expect the student section to remain full for the rest of the year.
