Notes On A Scorecard
Nov. 5, 2014 DON’T MISS THIS!
Amon G. Carter Stadium is the place to be in the Metroplex on Saturday night! You might have seen the comments from our head coach Gary Patterson. He’s talked about the need to make The Carter on Saturday reminiscent of how it was for that memorable 2009 game against Utah. It all starts with our incredible student section! We need everyone in the stadium early, being loud and staying late! #LOUDER

HOOPS SEASON NEARING
Men’s and women’s basketball season tickets were recently mailed. Please contact our ticket office if you have not received them by the end of this week. The season opener for both teams is Friday, Nov. 14, at 7 p.m. Due to the on-going renovations of our basketball facility, all men’s home games will be played off-campus at Wilkerson-Greines Activity Center in Fort Worth, while our women will call TCU’s University Recreation Center their home this season.
KIDS’ DAY AT VOLLEYBALL
Tonight’s 6:30 home volleyball match versus No. 24 Oklahoma is Kids’ Day. A free youth ticket is available with the purchase of an adult ticket. We’ll also have a free TCU volleyball for the first 200 kids in attendance.
It’s been another great week of recognition for our student-athletes. Congrats to quarterback Trevone Boykin on being named a semifinalist for both the Davey O’Brien Award and Maxwell Award. We also had football’s Kevin White and Jaden Oberkrom selected as Big 12 Defensive and Special Teams Players of the Week for their efforts in our win at West Virginia. Congratulations to soccer’s Bobbi Clemmer and Ryan Williams! Bobbi is second-team All-Big 12 with Ryan on the Big 12 All-Newcomer Squad. We also had equestrian's Kaitlin Perry named the NCEA Equitation over Fences Rider of the Month.
ON THE DOCKET
In addition to tonight’s volleyball match at 6:30 versus Oklahoma and Saturday’s 6:30 p.m. football game with Kansas State, both our basketball programs have home exhibition games this week. The men host Tarleton State on Thursday at 7 p.m. at Wilkerson-Greines with the women facing Texas Wesleyan on Sunday at 2 p.m. in the Rec Center. Swimming and diving has a Friday home meet for the women at 6 p.m. versus Iowa State. The first 50 students with their TCU ID will receive a free t-shirt. Volleyball will be at North Texas on Sunday at 5 p.m., while rifle will compete at UTEP. We’ll also have our men’s tennis program represented in New York at the USTA/ITA National Indoor Championship.
Please mark your calendar for next Wednesday, Nov. 12, at 3 p.m. for our next online chat. We’ll cover whatever is on your mind.
NAME THE MOVIE QUOTE
Last Week's Answer: Since the sequel is coming out soon, we go to the classic original Dumb and Dumber for that memorable line of Jim Carey asking Lauren Holly, “What do you think the chances are of a guy like you and a girl like me... ending up together?”
This Week: “You wanna hurt me? Go right ahead if it makes you feel any better. I'm an easy target. Yeah, you're right, I talk too much. I also listen too much. I could be a cold-hearted cynic like you... but I don't like to hurt people's feelings. Well, you think what you want about me; I'm not changing. I like... I like me. My wife likes me. My customers like me. 'Cause I'm the real article. What you see is what you get.”
Men's Basketball Coach at Ocean State University (OSU) has a daughter that is a senior in high school and is going to sign a National Letter of Intent (NLI) next month to play basketball at another Division I institution. There are three other seniors at the daughter's high school that will be signing NLIs to participate in various sports at the Division I level. This is the first year ever that this high school has had students sign NLIs, so the athletic director and principal want to conduct a small event for the families while the students sign their paperwork.
Is it permissible for the OSU coach to attend his daughter's signing event?
Yes with conditions. NCAA Staff Interpretation - 2/27/08 - Coach Who Is A Prospective Student-Athlete's Parent or Legal Guardian Attending Letter-of-Intent-Signing (I/II) - states that a coach who is a prospective-student-athlete's parent or legal guardian may attend and observe a letter-of-intent signing activity that involves the coach's son or daughter (or individual for which the coach is a legal guardian) in addition to other prospective-student-athletes, provided the attendance does not involve any personal contact with any other prospective student-athletes.
