The big game
Tailgates and concerts and rain, oh my!

Jim Vanderslice, a 1970 TCU graduate, drove from Dallas to watch the Horned Frogs play Louisville Wednesday night at Amon Carter Stadium. All he wanted to do was watch the “big game,” and he wasn’t going to let the rain and cold stop him. “This is great football weather,” Vanderslice said, sporting his TCU jacket.

Making the Grade

While the Frog defense is mired in inconsistency, the Frog offense continues to play solid offensive football. The defensive play can no longer be linked to breakdowns. More serious problems should concern the coaching staff: poor tackling, lack of a pass rush and loss of aggressiveness are areas that need to be addressed if the Frogs are to continue the winning streak. Despite all the defensive troubles, the Frogs managed to extend their streak and are inching closer and closer to a BCS invitation.
