Keep an eye on your mailbox as football season tickets were sent today. If you requested to pick them up at will call, they will be available beginning Monday, Aug. 13, in our Athletics Ticket Office in the Daniel-Meyer Coliseum. Office hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. After last week's orders through our wait list option, our new record-breaking season-ticket total is now 31,237. Remember, this does not include the 5,000 tickets set aside for TCU students. Thank you Horned Frogs!
ROAD FOOTBALL TICKETS FOR STUDENTS
Beginning Wednesday, Aug. 15, TCU students may request tickets to road games for our inaugural season in the Big 12. Requests must be submitted by Aug. 31. Ticket quantities are limited. If demand exceeds supply, tickets will be issued based on a lottery.
SINGLE-GAME TICKET NOTICE
Beginning Sept. 1, reserved single-game football tickets for all six home contests will be available online at GoFrogs.com.
PARKING PASS PICK-UP PARTIES
Reserved parking passes will be ready for pick up Thursday and Friday from 5:30 to 8 p.m. in the Dee J. Kelly Alumni & Visitors Center. Please stop by and enjoy complimentary food and beverages while socializing with other Frog fans as we count down to the season opener. We do have a limited number of reserved parking passes still available. Please call our Frog Club office at (817) 257-7700 for more information.
LEGACY BRICKS INSTALLATION
Everyone who purchased a brick through the Amon G. Carter Stadium Legacy Brick Program will be excited to know that our builders have completed installation. We have included markers with special moments in TCU's football history to help separate the different sections. The Frog Club will be emailing everyone their section location which should make it easy for you on game days to find your brick on the east side of Amon G. Carter Stadium.
ATHLETICS DONOR SURVEY
Thank you to all of our athletics donors who took the time to respond to the 2012 Athletics Donor Survey. Hearing your thoughts, experiences and ideas was very helpful and important to us. We are currently organizing the information received and will take it into consideration as we strive to improve the donor experience at TCU.
SHOPPING BIG 12
With the new school year about to start, there's no better place to do your back-to-school shopping for TCU apparel than our online store (click here) or one of our great retail outlets at Flash, The Varsity or TCU Barnes and Noble.
FROM THE HARD HATS
With football camp here, it's great to have our team now fully occupying its new locker room in the Walsh Complex as well as all our sports utilizing the new sports medicine center. We appreciate the vision of Mr. John Justin, through his foundation, making this possible. We're definitely in the home stretch on Amon G. Carter Stadium. The Champions' Club is taking shape and the suites are almost finished. The construction team on the project is excited to have Lieutenant Colonel Todd S. Waldvogel, P.E. as our new associate vice chancellor for facilities. A special word of thanks and gratitude to Todd's predecessor Will Stallworth, who was at TCU for nearly 25 years before recently retiring. We've now replaced Will with a younger version of him, and a Colonel no doubt. We all know the end dates on this project and have it firmly in our sights.
BIG 12 DAYS OF SUMMER
Our next Big 12 Days of Summer event is Friday at Pappas Burgers. Wear TCU-Big 12 gear to get a regular-sized shake for just $1 with the purchase of an entree. The offer is valid at the I-30 and University location only.
MEET THE FROGS
As a reminder, please mark your calendar for Saturday, Sept. 1, at 1 p.m. in the Daniel-Meyer Coliseum for our annual Meet The Frogs with the TCU football team. This autograph session has been a great way for our student-athletes and coaches to close their preseason before heading into game-week preparation.
SPANNING THE GLOBE
This week's edition of TCU supporters flashing the Horned Frog sign and apparel from all points worldwide comes from Luis Rodriguez Jr. He was converting the Galactic Empire in Los Angeles. These images are fun to share, so keep the photos coming to me at email@example.com.
If a student-athlete's name or picture appears on commercial items (e.g., t-shirts, sweatshirts, playing cards, posters, photographs) or is used to promote a commercial product sold by an individual or agency without the student-athlete's knowledge or permission, the student-athlete (or the institution acting on behalf of the student-athlete) is required to take steps to stop such an activity in order to retain his or her eligibility for intercollegiate athletics. A student-athlete will lose his/her eligibility for participation in intercollegiate athletics if the individual: (a.) Permits the use of his or her name or picture to advertise, recommend or promote directly the sale or use of a commercial product or service of any kind regardless of whether any compensation was received; or (b.) Receives remuneration for endorsing a commercial product or service through the individual's use of such product or service.

Please let us know if you ever have any questions or concerns regarding our program. This is also your program and we value your feedback. We welcome all calls and emails.
