LET'S GO RANGERS!
How about those Texas Rangers! Here's hoping our good friends can close it out in St. Louis and bring our area another championship. Some of you might not know that team president and icon Nolan Ryan was once a Frog. After his retirement as an active player, Nolan was an assistant baseball coach with us for five years. During that time, Nolan's sons, Reid and Reese, were playing for the Frogs. Nolan has remained loyal to TCU. It's been fun to watch the games.

LET'S GO RANGERS!
It's Homecoming week! We look forward to welcoming back all our alumni, parents and family members who will be in town for Saturday's football game with New Mexico. Homecoming is always a festive occasion on a college campus. I'd like to start this week's blog by thanking everyone who purchased club seats at our Club Seat Selection. From our Big 12 announcement to selling out our club seats, it was truly a great week in the Horned Frog family. Except for some scattered singles, all 2,500 club seats were sold. We sincerely apologize to those club seat depositors who did not have a chance to select seats. For those who asked to be considered for the single tickets, we will be contacting you this week in seat selection order until all seats have been sold. Those not having a chance to select will have an opportunity to purchase seats if they become available in the future.
I thought Big 12 Conference Interim Commissioner Chuck Neinas said it best to Chancellor Boschini, "I'd like to welcome you home." We'll always remember Oct. 10, 2011 as one of the more incredible days to be a Horned Frog! We are extremely appreciative of the Big 12 Board of Directors for their unanimous vote in selecting us to be the league's 10th member effective July 1, 2012. I would like to thank our coaches and student-athletes for all their hard work that resulted in the success we were able to accomplish on the playing field, providing us this opportunity. It didn't happen overnight. It's also a testament to our fans and donors. It's been a long time coming for you. I can't thank you enough for believing in TCU and making purple hot!
Please make sure to check out this week's Sporting News. In its annual ranking of the nation's top sports cities, Dallas/Fort Worth is No. 1 this year based on the combination of having the NBA world champion Dallas Mavericks, the American League champion Texas Rangers and your Rose Bowl champion TCU Horned Frogs. There's a great cover photo with Mark Cuban, Michael Young and SuperFrog. This is just the latest in a run of outstanding national exposure for us.
