Horned Frogs crumble in second half of Big 12 Championship game against No. 3 Oklahoma

first_imgLinkedin Twitter Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Facebook The Horned Frogs didn’t do themselves any favors at the start, as running back Kyle Hicks fumbled the first offensive snap, and Sooner linebacker Caleb Kelly returned it 18-yards for an early 10-0 lead. Heisman Trophy front-runner Baker Mayfield found the back of the end zone on a five-yard, play-action pass to tight end Mark Andrews to make it 17-0.However, the Horned Frogs would fight back in the second quarter, scoring 17 points of their own on a couple of jaw-dropping catches from wide receivers Jalen Reagor and John Diarse. The scoring strike shrunk the Oklahoma lead to ten, 17-7, with 14:07 left in the first half. Reagor’s 29-yard touchdown reception was his  seventh of the season, tying him for the most in the nation by a true freshman. Facebook “Against a team like that, especially offense you can’t make mistakes,” TCU head coach Gary Patterson said. “We did a great job of fighting back in the first half to get into a one-score game and you can’t give up big plays. Two plays is basically the second half and offensively we’ve got to do a better job in the second half. They turned up the volume and we did not.” Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ Garrett Podell World Oceans Day shines spotlight on marine plastic pollution ReddIt Diarse finished with five receptions for 66 yards, including the 12-yard touchdown, to give him at least one catch in 26 of the last 27 games.However, the Sooners responded. Eight plays later, Mayfield and the Sooners ran the exact same play-action pass play that resulted in Oklahoma’s first offensive touchdown, and it resulted in Oklahoma’s second offensive touchdown on a six-yard connection to Andrews that pushed the Sooner’s lead back up to 10, 24-14.That connection gave TCU 3:45 to march down field to get some points. With one timeout remaining and a first down at the Sooner 10, Hill made an ill-fated decision to tuck and run with the football, which resulted in a 1-yard gain to the nine, forcing the Horned Frogs to use their final timeout. Patterson, traditionally conservative when it comes to clock management, opted not to attempt a throw to the end zone with seven seconds left in the half. TCU kicker Cole Bunce hit a 26-yard field right up the middle to send the Horned Frogs into the locker room down just a touchdown, 24-17. Garrett Podellhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/garrett-podell/ TCU couldn’t carry over its second quarter momentum into the third quarter. Hill and the TCU offense went three and out and were stopped a yard short of a first down on its first two offensive possessions. Mayfield needed just three plays on two possessions to rack up a couple more passing touchdowns, a 55-yarder to Mykel Jones and a 52-yarder to Marquise Brown. With 10:41 left in the third quarter, the Sooners extended its lead to 21, 38-17.After a Sooner punt, TCU began a short-lived drive on their own four. On the very next play, Hill attempted to fit a jump ball down the left sideline to Diarse into double coverage, which resulted in an interception to Sooner defensive back Will Johnson. The turnover resulted in a 40-yard field goal from Seibert, which increased the Oklahoma advantage to 24, 41-17.TCU quarterback Kenny Hill runs past an Oklahoma defender.

If they fall outside the top 12, they’ll likely find themselves in San Antonio for the second time in three years at the Alamo Bowl, as the Big 12’s second-place team.

I immediately ran to the sideline and told Coach, that’s a catch.” Men’s basketball scores season-low in NIT semifinals loss to Texas + posts “You can throw to the end zone, but if you’re not careful you’re going to run out and end up with zero,” Patterson said. “We did know we were going to start with the ball the second half, so I was trying to get two possessions. You can get a field goal and then you’re within one score and you get the ball back and go down the field and here you go, but it obviously it didn’t turn out that way.” “Very proud of this football team,” Patterson said. “With the seniors, you got a group that’s 10-3 and fought themselves into this ball game. Preseason we were picked sixth, and really have overcome a lot of things, and we probably had one of the tougher [schedules].

However, TCU defensive end Ben Banogu strip-sacked Mayfield, but Oklahoma right guard Dru Samia fell on top of the loose ball. The sack by Ben Banogu gave TCU at least one sack in 54 of its last 56 games. On third and six, Oklahoma threw to the end zone, but Andrews dropped the ball. Sooner kicker Austin Seibert then hooked just his third field goal of the season from 43 yards out, a significant shift in momentum.The Horned Frogs would capitalize nine plays later on a play from wide receiver Diarse. Hill threw a jump ball to the senior on a fade route, as he has many times this season, and Diarse snatched the ball out the air with one hand to tuck it into his gut right as his knee hit the ground. After referees initially ruled the play an incompletion, they awarded the Horned Frogs a touchdown on the 12-yard connection, which cut the Sooner lead to three, 17-14. printWhile the College Football Playoffs were likely off the table for TCU Saturday at AT&T Stadium, they were given the opportunity to win the Big 12 Conference Championship. However, Oklahoma made the most of the opportunity instead shutting down TCU, 41-17. Listen: The Podell and Pickell Show with L.J.

Susan RussellGeneral Convention is a little like that great old musical Brigadoon where a village emerges from the mists in Scotland every 100 years and then disappears again until the next time – only instead of a village it’s a Convention and it emerges every three years in various locations around the country: this year in Austin, Texas.Officially the General Convention is the governing body of The Episcopal Church that meets every three years as a bicameral legislature that includes the House of Deputies (think House of Representatives) and the House of Bishops (think Senate) composed of deputies and bishops from each diocese.This will be my 10th General Convention … the first was 1991 in Phoenix. I went as a visitor for three days and was hooked by a ten day event with liturgy, legislation and shopping all under one roof! Since then I’ve served as journalist, activist and now am honored to serve as one of four clergy deputies representing the Diocese of Los Angeles in a deputation chaired by All Saints own Jim White.General Convention reminds us that we’re all in this together – that we are part of a wider church that together makes a common witness to the world. Local is essential, and – as Episcopalians – we are part of something bigger. Decisions made in Austin will have an impact on the way The Episcopal Church – our Church — engages the world.On Sunday, July 1st Jim and I will offer a presentation in the Rector’s Forum at 10:15 a.m. looking at the role of General Convention in general and what’s coming up in Austin in specific.There are a lot of issues that GC addresses, including: Who are we as Episcopalians? What do we care about? What should we be doing, and how, when, and with whom? For example:• We’re going to revise the Prayer Book sometime. Not yet. This GC will consider resolutions for how we’ll go about that work. Two very different approaches are offered• What about making marriage rites equally available to all couples in all dioceses? Creating liturgies for racial reconciliation? Adding care for creation to the baptismal covenant?• What should the Church’s investment portfolio include – and exclude?• Should we set up a Task Force on the Theology of Money or any of the other proposed task forces?• How should we build capacity for Becoming the Beloved Community? And how can the Church continue to advocate for Immigration Reform and stand with those on the margins and at our borders?• What kind of support, including funding, will there be for ethnic ministries? Youth ministry? Young adult ministry?• How can we address the opioid epidemic?• What will the Church have to say about Israel/Palestine and discerning a faithful response to the ongoing challenges in the Middle East?All of this happens through a systematic legislative process that begins with legislative committee meetings and hearings on July 3 and continues with nine days of legislative sessions (July 5-14) and under the umbrella of daily Eucharist and frequent prayer.Other All Saintsers who will be in Austin include our parish deacon Charleen Crean (in her role as Archdeacon for the Diocese of Los Angeles), Rick Felton (Executive Director of the Episcopal Network for Stewardship) and Mel Soriano (completing his term as Communication Director for Integrity.)So join us on Sunday, July 1st in the Forum beginning at 10:15 a.m. with your questions and concerns.Check out the GC79 Media Hub which will be live streaming various events and legislative sessions from Austin. And do keep the work of General Convention in your prayers as we come together to continue to call the Episcopal Church to be a beacon of love, justice and compassion in a world in desperate need of all of the above.All Saints Church is located at 132 N Euclid Ave, in Pasadena.

Student injured in shooting at University of North Carolina at Charlotte to graduate Saturday

first_imgSean Rayford/Getty Images(CHARLOTTE, N.C.) — A student who was injured during the deadly classroom shooting at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte earlier this month will be walking down the aisle to receive her diploma on Saturday.Emily Houpt, 23, was injured when a fellow student at the school stormed a classroom on April 30 and opened fire on those inside. She’s the only one of the four students injured in the shooting to receive her diploma during the school’s graduation ceremonies this weekend. The other wounded students are Drew Pescaro, 19, Rami Al-Ramadhan, 20, and Sean DeHart, 20.Houpt will be receiving a degree in international affairs, according to ABC News affiliate WSOC-TV.Ellis “Reed” Parlier, 19, and Riley Howell, 21, the two students killed by the gunman, received degrees in memoriam during a ceremony on Friday. According to WSOC, Howell was an environmental studies major who transferred to the school in 2018 and Parlier, who started school in 2017, was planning to major in computer science with the ultimate goal of becoming a game developer.About 5,000 students will be graduating this weekend, WSOC reported. During Friday night’s ceremony, Chancellor Philip Dubois held a moment of silence and encouraged others to remain strong during a time of great pain.“At the time, I ask that you join me in a moment of silence in memory of Riley and Reed and in thanks for the lives of our four injured students and countless others who were spared because of their sacrifice,” Dubois said, according to WSOC. “We, as Niner Nation, persevered.”In an essay written by Adam Johnson, the anthropology professor whose class was involved in the shooting, he said that the shooting took place early in the evening of April 30 while a group in the class was conducting a video presentation.“We get about seven minutes into the video and without warning, earsplitting bangs ring throughout the room, off the glass walls, creating a terrible reverberation,” he wrote.The shooter had been enrolled in Johnson’s class, he wrote, saying that while he was “engaged” in the class early in the semester, he soon stopped coming to class and eventually withdrew. It’s still unclear if there was a motive behind the gunfire.Chief Kerr Putney of the Charlotte-Mecklenberg Police Department hailed Howell as a “hero” for charging at the gunman and taking him “off his feet … allowing officers to step in and apprehend him.”He said that without Howell, “the assailant may not have been disarmed.”“Unfortunately, he gave his life in the process, but his sacrifice saved lives,” Putney said.Howell, who was taking ROTC courses at the university, was buried with military honors earlier this week.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
