THE SEASON OPENER
We will have a 6 p.m. kickoff for our Sept. 8 season opener with Grambling State at Amon G. Carter Stadium. I know the next question will be the television plans for that game. We'll know very soon as we're currently waiting on the Big 12 TV contract to be finalized. We appreciate your patience with this process.

REPORTING DAY HERE
Now that we've hit August on the calendar, the debut seasons for all our sports in the Big 12 are truly just around the corner. Our soccer program, under the direction of first-year head coach Eric Bell, is officially our first team to open preseason camp. In fact, their first practice was held this afternoon. Football reports Sunday, and volleyball reports Tuesday.

REPORTING DAYS APPROACHING
As I was working out in our Physical Performance Center this morning, it was energizing to see how hard our student-athletes from all sports are preparing for their upcoming seasons. Our fall sports will be here before you know it. Soccer will be the first team to report on Aug. 1. We'll then have football on Aug. 5 and volleyball on Aug. 7.

NATIONAL CHAMPION AGAIN

How about Whitney Gipson winning another national championship in the long jump! Congratulations to a very special TCU graduate. Whitney received her degree in broadcast journalism last month and actually competed at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships as an alumna. She also won the national title in the long jump at the indoor championships. It's now on to the Olympic trials for Whitney as she looks to secure her spot in London.
