Dear Horned Frog Fans: The 2010-11 TCU athletics season is one that provided us a memory of a lifetime. It wasn’t just our Rose Bowl champion football program but also the incredible support we received from an unbelievable alumni and fan base. Thanks to you, our supporters, season-ticket holders, alumni, students, faculty, staff and fans, it was a record-breaking year on so many levels for us off the field. The incredible support of Chancellor Victor Boschini and a tremendous Board of Trustees, as well as the unbelievable efforts of TCU associate athletics director Davis Babb, our Frog Club staff, football coach Gary Patterson and others allowed us to generate the necessary funds for the renovation of Amon G. Carter Stadium. At press time, we had raised $143 million from 95 donors, surpassing our original goal of $105 million. Our Frog Club exceeded $5 million in donations and 5,000 members for the first time. We became just the second nonautomatic qualifying school to top $1 million in licensing revenues. We broke season ticket and attendance figures in football, baseball, soccer, volleyball, tennis and track and field. Through the leadership of Fort Worth Mayor Mike Moncrief, Fridays in our city became Go Purple Fridays! The city became painted in purple. It was cool and fashionable to follow the Horned Frogs. Quite simply, you enabled us to succeed, and we thank you for that. In front of the largest television audience in ESPN and cable TV history, excluding the NFL, our football program captivated the nation with its dramatic Rose Bowl win over Wisconsin. It was an incredible stage to be on, and our student-athletes came through with a performance that made the TCU community proud. On Nov. 13, we said goodbye to an old friend as the final game was played in Amon G. Carter Stadium as we knew it. A few weeks later, on Dec. 5, we became the first team in the history of college football to implode its stadium and accept a Rose Bowl invitation on the same day. In addition to football, we won conference titles in baseball and women’s golf. Overall, it was another successful year for our athletics program. Twelve of our 20 sports were represented in postseason play with 11 teams nationally ranked. Among our many All-Americans, we had a national award winner in football’s Jake Kirkpatrick, who captured the Rimington Trophy as the best center in the country. The postseason honors extended to our terrific coaching staff. Karen Monez was selected as the Collegiate Rifle Coaches Association Coach of the Year, giving us three National Coach of the Year awards in the last two seasons. In addition to Amon G. Carter Stadium’s renovation, other facility improvements included a new weight room and the upper deck expansion of Lupton Stadium. Academically, our student-athletes continued to shine in the classroom and represent us well in the campus community. Our cumulative grade-point average was just under a 3.0 with four student-athletes graduating Phi Beta Kappa. The past year also saw us set our course for the future with the announcement that we accepted an invitation to join the BIG EAST Conference in all sports effective with the 2012-13 campaign. We hope you enjoy this year’s Annual Report as it summarizes a memorable and historic year for us, while also providing a look ahead to the future. Go Frogs!

2010-11 TCU ATHLETICS ANNUAL REPORT

2010-11 HIGHLIGHTS •

TCU student-athletes finished the fall 2010 semester with a cumulative grade point average of 2.963.  Following the spring 2011 semester, the department’s cumulative GPA improved to 2.974.

Following the 2010-2011 academic year, 15 of TCU’s 20 athletic programs carried cumulative grade point averages above a 3.00.

In the 2010-2011 academic year, TCU landed 115 student-athletes on the fall and spring Academic All-Mountain West Conference squads.

Eighty-five TCU student-athletes (35 in fall 2010 and 50 in spring 2011) graduated in the 2010-2011 academic year.

Three former TCU student-athletes were named as recipients of the NCAA Degree Completion Award for 2010-2011.

In spring 2011, four TCU studentathletes were inducted into Phi Beta Kappa, a very prestigious national honorary society that recognizes academic excellence in the liberal arts and sciences. These studentathletes are Melissa Loh (Women’s Golf), Andrew McDonald (Men’s Track and Field), Cameron Nash (Men’s Tennis), and Eric Senseman (Men’s Track and Field).

In 2010-2011, Trevor Woods (Men’s Swimming and Diving) and Cameron Nash (Men’s Tennis) were two of four TCU students honored as Clark Scholars by the TCU Clark Society. Clark Scholars are nominated by TCU faculty members who feel the student would “represent the University with the highest degree of character, leadership and sense of service.”

The football team that represented TCU in the 2011 Rose Bowl had 17 graduates playing that game. Five played the 2010 season as graduate students while twelve players earned their degree in December.

Men’s Cross Country, Men’s Indoor Track, Men’s Outdoor Track and Men’s Tennis earned NCAA Academic Progress Rate Public Recognition Awards in the 2010-2011 academic year. Only the top ten percent of programs earn this award that recognizes academic excellence.

2010-11 TCU ATHLETICS ANNUAL REPORT

2010-11 HIGHLIGHTS •

TCU student-athletes and SuperFrog visited Fort Worth elementary schools in both the fall and spring semesters for the “SuperFrog Reading Challenge” program, encouraging students to improve their reading skills. More than 5,000 students from grades 3-5 participated in the program that provides incentives, such as tickets to TCU athletics events.

Women’s basketball teamed up with Neighbor Helping Neighbor to deliver gifts and TCU goodie bags to families and elderly throughout the Metroplex during the holidays.

Several TCU teams raised awareness for Project Purple – an initiative that allows needy children the opportunity to attend Horned Frog home events.

Members of the TCU track and field women’s team visited Cook Children’s Hospital, reading books and playing board games with the young patients.

Student-athletes from multiple teams spent time working at the Tarrant County Food Bank, working to eliminate hunger in Fort Worth and surrounding counties by providing food, education and other resources to hunger-relief charities and their communities.

Many TCU teams helped spread awareness for the Susan G. Komen Foundation by adding pink to the uniforms and donating funds from shirt sales to the cause. The baseball team dedicated the entire 2011 season to fighting breast cancer, boasting the team motto “We Fight Back”.

Rose Bowl Pep Rally

Thousands of TCU fans spilled into the streets surrounding LA Live in downtown Los Angeles for a pep rally before the 97th Rose Bowl. Brian Estridge, “The Voice of the Frogs,” and TCU radio color analyst John Denton served as emcees for the event, which featured the TCU band, cheerleaders and Showgirls. TCU chancellor Victor J. Boschini Jr., director of intercollegiate athletics Chris Del Conte and former Frog offensive lineman Victor Payne also took the stage.

2010-11 TCU ATHLETICS ANNUAL REPORT

Nike TCU and Nike, the world’s most recognizable symbol in athletic apparel, have become synonymous with each other. TCU is one of just five schools to be involved in Nike’s Pro Combat Uniform series each of the last two seasons and one of just 12 programs to be chosen by Nike for its product testing. In 2011, the Horned Frogs will be adding to their game-day attire options with a new helmet and set of uniforms. Nike was instrumental in over $20 million in retail TCU merchandise sold worldwide over the last year, providing a record $1 million in licensing revenues.

Live Chats & Social Media TCU introduced a series of live chats to GoFrogs.com, providing fans worldwide with the opportunity to have their questions answered directly by Horned Frog student-athletes, coaches and administrators. The sessions were usually 30 minutes with questions ranging from the upcoming season to TCU facility updates and personal interests.

The official football season t-shirt was introduced that generated funds back to the Mayor’s charity of choice. We raised over $13,000 for Directions Home selling close to 7,000 t-shirts. The shirts were priced at $10, an affordable opportunity for everyone to participate.

National Media TCU’s Rose Bowl appearance and championship brought unprecedented national exposure to the Horned Frog football program. The  21-19 victory over Wisconsin delivered an 11.7 television rating. At the time, it was the highest overnight rating, excluding the NFL, in history for ESPN and all of cable television. For the second straight year, ESPN’s College GameDay made two appearances at Horned Frog football games. TCU was prominent across all national media, including quarterback Andy Dalton being the first Horned Frog since 1962 to appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated. 

NFL Draft The Horned Frogs had five players drafted for the second time in three seasons. Quarterback Andy Dalton was the 35th-overall pick by the Cincinnati Bengals, becoming the highest selection from TCU on the offensive side of the ball since tailback LaDainian Tomlinson was drafted fifth overall by the San Diego Chargers in 2001. Offensive tackle Marcus Cannon (Fifth round, New England Patriots), wide receiver Jeremy Kerley (Fifth round, New York Jets), safety Colin Jones (Sixth round, San Francisco 49ers) and cornerback Malcolm Williams (Seventh round, New England Patriots) rounded out the 2011 NFL Draft class. The five picks tie for the second most under head coach Gary Patterson. Twenty former Horned Frogs worked out for NFL scouts, coaches and general managers as part of Friday’s TCU Pro Day. A total of 26 NFL teams were represented by various coaches, scouts and front office personnel. San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh was among those present.

Super Bowl Host TCU served as the practice site for the AFC champion Pittsburgh Steelers in their preparation for Super Bowl XLV at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. The Steelers utilized the Horned Frogs’ football facilities, while the floor of Daniel-Meyer Coliseum was the site of team news conferences and media availabilities.

2010-11 ACCOMPLISHMENTS

The momentum around TCU athletics is defined in the TCU Frog Club and its incredible network of volunteers. The 2010-11 fiscal year saw the Frog Club top $5 million in donations and 5,000 members for the first time, just two of many records set. The Frog Club’s emphasis is on the student-athlete and raising Scholarships for Champions. The growth of the Frog Club has mirrored that of TCU’s athletics programs. Now in its 71st year, the Frog Club is positioned to help take TCU to the next level.  •

• •

In 2010-11, the TCU Frog Club reached an all-time high in revenue with $5,077,542 in support of Scholarships for Champions. With 1,480 new members this year, the Frog Club saw a 21 percent increase in membership with an all-time high 5,272 donors.  Gifts to endowed athletics scholarship funds totaled $1,368,725. The Frog Club’s 80-member, allvolunteer membership sales team raised a record $1,646,509, marking its fifth consecutive year of topping $1 million. The Frog Club staff secured 3,300 down payments for the 2,500 available club seats in the renovated Amon G. Carter Stadium. The 2010 Horned Frog Classic at Colonial Country Club generated a record $250,000 in scholarship support for the TCU men’s and women’s golf programs, representing a 22 percent increase from the previous year. The Coody Classic, named in honor of former TCU standout and 1971 Masters Champion Charles Coody, had a record 200 players participate. The Frog Club moved into new offices inside Daniel-Meyer Coliseum, adjacent to the ticket office, to better serve its constituents. The official Frog Club website, www. tcufrogclub.com, was upgraded to enable more than $1.7 million in gifts to be made online.

HORNED FROG PRIORITY POINTS SYSTEM The Horned Frog Priority Points System was  approved by the Athletics Committee of TCU’s Board of Trustees and the TCU Frog Club Board of Directors on June 1, 2006. The Horned Frog Priority Points System  provides seasonticket holders, donors and Frog Club members with a transparent process for distributing high-demand tickets for TCU athletics events.  All donors and season-ticket holders are assigned points based on several criteria, including annual Frog Club contributions, capital project gifts, cumulative athletic giving and season-ticket loyalty.  The system has been used in recent years to allocate tickets to the Rose Bowl and Fiesta Bowl as well as the baseball team’s postseason appearances, including the 2010 College World Series. The Horned Frog Priority Points System will be utilized for the 2012 football season when Amon G. Carter Stadium’s renovation is completed. Over 20,000 Frog fans have accounts. Frog Club members are encouraged to access their account at www.tcufrogclub. com to check their points and rank.

Season Ticket Loyalty Points

LETTERMEN’S ASSOCIATION “A Common Bond ...The Tradition Continues,” that’s the mantra of the TCU Lettermen’s Association. More than just former student-athletes getting together to talk about times past, we are 20 sports strong with an active membership that gives back to its university. In 2010, the organization again surpassed the unprecedented milestone of 1,000 active members and has raised an all-time high of more than $110,000 in just membership dues alone. Our members have also given to capital campaigns, stadium improvement projects, athletic scholarship endowments, club seat deposits and made gifts to other departments on campus. As other universities are struggling to have their former student-athletes give back, the TCU Lettermen’s Association sets the bar.

CAPITAL GIVING To continue our momentum on the field, TCU must keep pace with the rising costs of athletics scholarships, which have more than doubled during the past decade. Frog Club contributions help pay for athletics scholarships and keeping our varsity programs fully funded. Capital gifts help sustain and build athletics infrastructure. Together, the annual support of donors plays a major role in TCU’s success on and off the field.

Included above is an artist’s rendering of the entrance to a new TCU football locker room which would be completed in time for the 2012 season. Thanks to a gift from the David E. Bloxom Sr. Foundation, three new film towers will be installed on the Sheridan and Clif Morris football practice fields. The six overall towers are still named for the Darrell Lester Family.

An anonymous donor provided funding for a new van to be used by the TCU men’s and women’s tennis teams.

2010-11 TCU ATHLETICS ANNUAL REPORT

TCU ATHLETICS SCHOLARSHIPS Winning intercollegiate athletics titles demands a team effort. To build these championship teams, scholarships are vital to attracting and recruiting the highest caliber student-athletes possible. Giving to the TCU Frog Club goes directly to the Scholarships for Champions campaign. In 2010-11, the total surpassed $5 million for the first time, representing more than half the total cost of funding TCU’s 300 athletics scholarships.

FACILITIES UPGRADES The Jane Justin Field House made its debut in August 2010 at the cost of $1.5-million, which was the largest gift ever at TCU for a project geared solely for women’s athletics. The facility features 5,000-square-feet and includes home and visitor locker rooms, an officials’ locker room, a training room, offices, lounge area and wrap-around raised viewing terrace. In their first game since the opening of the Jane Justin Field House, the Frogs posted a 7-0 victory over Texas Southern on August 22, 2010.

Lupton Stadium expanded the seating capacity in 2011 with a pair of upper deck sections down the first and third base lines. The extra 850 bleacher seats provided shade for the concourse patios and assisted TCU to reset the top-10 record attendance marks in program history. Overall, the Frogs’ average attendance figures went up 35 percent in 2011. The additional seating was put to use early as a stadium record 6,099 fans arrived for opening night against Kansas on Feb 18.

AMON G. CARTER STADIUM Amon G. Carter Stadium opened in 1930 and instantly became a landmark in the Fort Worth skyline. The upper deck on the west side was added in 1956, making it visible from miles around campus. During the first 80 years, TCU’s home field witnessed the likes of “Slingin’ Sammy” Baugh before he became a Pro Football Hall of Famer. Davey O’Brien scampered his way to a Heisman Trophy and national championship in 1938. Bob Lilly played there before being the first-ever draft pick of the Dallas Cowboys and LaDainian Tomlinson set an NCAA single-game rushing record with 406 yards in a home game in 1999.

2010-11 TCU ATHLETICS ANNUAL REPORT

TCU played the final home game in the existing Amon G. Carter Stadium on Nov. 13, defeating San Diego State, 40-35, to clinch a share of the Mountain West Conference championship. A crowd of 45,694 Frog fans crammed through the turnstiles for the last time to watch TCU play its final home game, representing the third sellout of the 2010 season and fourth in the last eight home games. TCU set a single-season attendance record for the second-straight year, averaging 42,466 fans per game. The previous record total from 2009 was 38,187. TCU won its last 20 home games inside the friendly confines of AGCS.

It took years to build TCU’s Amon G. Carter Stadium, but only seconds for Austin Commercial, the general contractor in charge of the Stadium renovation, to implode the West grandstand of the stadium on the morning of Sunday, Dec. 5.

FUTURE PROJECTS The new Amon G. Carter Stadium will be reconstructed to its original height to ensure the stadium returns to the Fort Worth skyline. The fan experience will vastly improve with a new concourse, additional restrooms and concession areas, as well as more ramps and elevators. The stadium will also feature 31 suites and space for up to 2,537 club seats, in addition to new scoreboards, a new press box and more seating in the north end zone. The stadium is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2012.

Corporate partners TCU values its association with IMG College, which develops and establishes corporate partners with national, regional and local companies. These sponsors help make TCU Athletics among the best values for fans in the NCAA. In turn, our partners receive maximum exposure by associating with a major Division I program in a top market. The 2010-11 year was a record year as IMG partnered with 188 sponsors. IMG College revenues exceeded an all-time high of $2.8 million. These monies go toward supporting the academic and athletic goals of TCU Athletics and Texas Christian University.

TCU’s Board of Trustees unanimously approved an invitation to join the BIG EAST Conference in all sports beginning with the 2012-13 academic year on Nov. 29, 2010. TCU will become an official member of the BIG EAST July 1, 2012. BIG EAST members in football are Cincinnati, Connecticut, Louisville, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, South Florida, Syracuse and West Virginia. For sports other than football, the BIG EAST also includes DePaul, Georgetown, Marquette, Notre Dame, Providence, Seton Hall, St. John’s and Villanova. By joining the BIG EAST Conference, TCU can continue its goal to build an excellent athletics program. The BIG EAST also provides TCU’s athletics program television exposure through ESPN, CBS Sports and SportsNet New York (SNY). The BIG EAST Conference has the longest standing continuous relationship of any league with CBS Sports. In adding TCU and the nation’s fifth-largest television market, the BIG EAST Conference further strengthens its footprint on the national television scene. BIG EAST markets already contained almost one-fourth of all television households in the United States. BIG EAST institutions currently reside in nine of the nation’s top-35 media markets, including New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Tampa, Pittsburgh, Hartford, Cincinnati and Milwaukee. Headquartered in Providence, R.I., the BIG EAST Conference was formed in 1979. The league has won 28 national championships in six sports with 128 student-athletes capturing individual national titles. “We take tremendous pride in having a nationally-prominent athletics program and joining the BIG EAST Conference will allow us to further grow our brand and increase our visibility and exposure,” TCU director of intercollegiate athletics Chris Del Conte said. “Having BCS automatic-qualifying status was a priority for our football program and a great reward for the success we’ve had the last decade under Gary Patterson. Keeping all our sports together was also critical. We are very excited to accomplish both these goals and look forward to our new home in the BIG EAST Conference.”
