Kenny Hill Bowl would have been fun

It could have been a matchup of Texas A&M, where Kenny Hill played as a freshman in 2014, against TCU, where Hill has been the starter for most of the 2016 season following his transfer up Highway 6. Dream bowls

Rhule: Baylor 'the right fit for me' (1:39)

Foreman said he met with new Texas coach Tom Herman, who tried to convince him to stay in school, but there was no turning back for Foreman after his 2,000-yard rushing season. "I really feel like Herman's a great guy. We had a great conversation and he had a great pitch, but with the carries I got this season, I felt it was time for me to go to the NFL and try to get paid for some of them."

Texas RB D'Onta Foreman said that the firing of Charlie Strong didn't have a major impact on his decision to turn pro, but it was the final factor in his decision. "Once I talked to my parents, I pretty much knew what I was going to do. Whether he would have left or stayed, I probably still would have gone to the NFL anyway. With him leaving, it definitely put the top on it and [told him] 'Yeah, it's definitely time for me to leave.'"

Tim Jankovich said he's concerned about how his guards will manage the pace given TCU's on-ball defense. TCU averages 10 steals per game, and SMU's scoring production is (understandably) down from last year. Important resume-building game against rival (and 8-0) TCU, 7pm CT on ESPNEWS.

Matt Rhule said he's received a ton of texts from coaches. Jon Gruden told him: "Bring some power to the Big 12."

Raise your hand if you had TCU as one of the last 11 unbeaten teams in the nation? Yeah, didn't think so. But Kenrich Williams is back to full health after sitting out with a knee injury last year, riding back-to-back double doubles entering tonight's game with SMU. Plus, the defense has been stellar: forcing the 6th most turnovers in the country. They play their one and only non-conference road game tonight vs SMU, 7 CT on ESPNEWS.

Matt Rhule says one of the things he's learned in first days on the job: "A lot of kids want to come to Baylor." The Bears have only one verbal commitment for the 2017 class right now.

Dwight Powell, who the Mavs gave a four-year, $37 million deal this summer, will see his playing time increased significantly while Andrew Bogut recovers from a knee injury. Powell got off to a slow start this season but has averaged 16 points and 7.5 rebounds in the last two games. "He's progressing game to game, no question about it," coach Rick Carlisle said. "He's gaining experience, recognition of situation, teammates being on the same wavelength with him. Many, many positives."
