No Pachall - No Problem!
Earlier this week, I wrote an article predicting that TCU would upset the Baylor Bears this Saturday. I posted it as a free play, it was featured in Chalk Talk, I posted it all over Facebook, and I told everyone that would listen, to take the Horned Frogs on the moneyline +$245.
Of course the Horned Frogs were without starting quarterback Casey Pachall, who has now left the team to seek treatment for alcoholism. Freshman quarterback Trevone Boykin tossed three interceptions in his first career start the week prior, including getting picked off with his first pass of the game. Despite all that, I was convinced that the kid had all the tools to get it done this week against Baylor.
Here is what I had to say about it: "Boykin came in and threw an interception with his first pass of the ballgame. He completed 23 of 40 passes for 270 yards, one touchdown and three picks. It wasn't pretty, however at times the young quarterback showed flashes of brilliance. Despite turning the ball over five times, TCU still managed to gain 455 yards of offense, more than any offense against the Cyclones all season."
The Horned Frogs, led by Boykin, dominated the Bears on Saturday, winning by a score of 49-21. Boykin threw for 261 yards and four touchdowns, and he added 56 more yards, and another touchdown on the ground.
Texas Christian is going to move up the rankings this week, and they remain among the best teams in the country. They have a tough game coming up next week at home versus Texas Tech, with the Raiders coming off an upset over West Virginia.
We will keep an eye on Trevone Boykin, but from what I have seen so far, I think the Horned Frogs are likely to be a better team with the freshman taking over for Pachall.

Monster 31-16 Run in All Sports leads to a strong Monday MLB, NHL, and NBA card you do not want to miss!
Monday Free Play from Doc's Sports Take #959 Philadelphia Phillies over St. Louis Cardinals (Monday, 8:15pm EST) The St. Louis Cardinals were dealt a huge blow on Saturday when Adam Wainwright was lost for the season to an Achilles injury. It took the wind out of a Cards team that was playing great baseball leading up to the injury, and it may take some time for them to get back on track. They host a bad Phillies team on Monday night, but it's not nearly as bad when Cole Hamels is on the mound. The talented left-hander could be dealt away at any time, but while he's in Philadelphia he's going to give his team a great chance to win every fifth day. The Cardinals also endured another injury over the weekend as Jason Heyward went down with a groin injury. That makes things easier on Hamels and also hurts the St. Louis defense quite a bit. The line on this game is about 10 cents too high, so we'll take the Phillies.
