TCU Web site receives mixed reviews
By Eric Elton
a sophomore education major, sat down at her computer to check her
schedule the day before classes began only to find a redesigned
TCU home page.
After the initial surprise, she proceeded to search the page, taking
twice as long to locate the TCU Frognet link.

what I was looking for on the site, Deller said. Now
the layout appears to be too cluttered and not nearly as user friendly
as its predecessor.

By Brandon Ortiz
off-season, head coach Gary Patterson called Saturdays game

to evaluate how far the program has come against one of the best
schools in the country. The Frogs lost, 21-7, but put up a better
showing than many experts anticipated.
