Dear Horned Frog Fans: Thank you for your support of TCU Athletics! Your support makes a difference in the lives of more than 400 Horned Frog student-athletes in their drive to succeed. That success starts in the classroom as TCU student-athletes posted a 2.96 departmental cumulative grade point average in the Spring 2009 semester. Fifty percent of the student-athletes had GPAs above 3.0, including 25 percent at 3.5 or higher. In addition, 81 Horned Frogs graduated during the 2008-09 academic year, while two former student-athletes were named recipients of the NCAA Degree Completion Award. Overall, 13 of the 20 programs had GPAs of 3.0 or better with 15 above the 2.9 mark. On the field, Horned Frog teams showed a will to win. A TCU-record five team sports – Football, Baseball, Men’s Golf, Rifle and Equestrian – finished the season in the national top 11, and the Men’s and Women’s Track and Field squads placed individuals and relay teams among the nation’s best. Along with those programs, 16 of the 20 athletics programs placed teams or individuals in the NCAA postseason, including Men’s and Women’s Cross Country, Men’s Swimming and Diving, Women’s Golf, Men’s Tennis, Women’s Tennis and Women’s Basketball. The football team won its fourth straight bowl game by defeating No. 9 Boise State in the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, which was the program’s 10th bowl appearance in the last 11 years. In addition, TCU hosted the NCAA Fort Worth Regional in Baseball and the NCAA Championships in Rifle. These events were successful, and the student-athletes from those teams were very appreciative of the many additional hours of work from both the staff and volunteers who made it possible for them to compete for championships at their home venues. Final top 40 national rankings included Equestrian (No. 2 in Western), Rifle (No. 5), Football (No. 7), Men’s Golf (No. 9), Baseball (No. 11) Women’s Indoor Track and Field (No. 22), Women’s Golf (No. 25), Women’s Tennis (No. 29) and Men’s Tennis (No. 38). Thanks to you, overall athletic contributions in fiscal year 2008-09 totaled more than $12.5 million with $4.01 million of that designated to the Frog Club and the student-athlete scholarship program. Facility improvements included the completion of the Dutch Meyer Athletic Complex and the Abe Martin Academic Enhancement Center; and the addition of Paul’s Patios at Lupton Stadium and Williams-Reilly Field, thanks to a gift from the estate of Paul Sorrels. Scheduled future upgrades include a fieldhouse for Women’s Soccer, as a result of a $1.5 million commitment from the Jane and John Justin Foundation; a renovation of the pro shop at the Bayard H. Friedman Tennis Center with $300,000 in funding from the Mary Potishman Lard Trust; and continued planning for the Olympic Building and Golf Practice Facility, made possible through a gift from Malcolm Louden. A special thanks to Chairman Clarence Scharbauer and the Stadium Committee for giving a year of their time to study improvement options for Amon G. Carter Stadium. Last year’s $15 million lead commitment by the Amon G. Carter Foundation has enabled preliminary architectural planning. We are also grateful to Bill ‘86 and Rita ‘86 Starkey for establishing the second fully endowed athletics scholarship at TCU and to Sherri Parker Lee ‘68 for her planned estate gift to fully endow the first women’s scholarship. We hope that you enjoy reading this Annual Report. Successful student-athletes and coaches come together to make winning programs, not just winning teams. Nothing epitomized Horned Frog confidence and success more than the spirit of sportsmanship shown by Rifle standout Erin Lorenzen, who won the Mountain West Conference’s Hal Rothman Sportsmanship Award for self-reporting a misfire at the NCAA Championships. We hope that the honor and self-assurance she displayed, along with that of hundreds of other Horned Frog student-athletes, inspires great feelings of pride in TCU. Go Frogs,

Daniel B. Morrison, Jr. Director of Athletics P.S. – On behalf of TCU Athletics, we want to extend our gratitude to the John Cockrell Printing Company for printing this Annual Report for a fourth consecutive year as a gift to TCU.

FROG CLUB Scholarships for Champions The TCU Frog Club was formed in 1940 by a group of local businessmen who wanted to support TCU Athletics on the heels of the unprecedented successes of the 1930s. Today, with its 70th anniversary approaching in 2010, the 4,000-member Frog Club continues its support of winning programs. With the cost of one scholarship for a student-athlete nearly $40,000, support through the Frog Club is more critical than ever.

2008-2009 Accomplishments •

Raised $4.01 million for Scholarships for Champions – the second straight year to eclipse the $4 million mark. The 80-person Frog Club Membership Team contributed a record $1.26 million to the total, surpassing the $1 million mark for the third consecutive year. (Frog Club financial contributions have increased by 90 percent in the last four years.)

Welcomed 268 new members, a seven percent increase.

Raised $206,000 for women’s and men’s golf scholarships at the 30th annual Horned Frog Classic at Colonial Country Club.

Capital Giving / Scholarships 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, 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.

The Jane and John S. Justin Foundation has donated $1.5 million for a 5,000-square-foot fieldhouse at GarveyRosenthal Soccer Stadium. It will include home and visitor locker rooms, an officials locker room, a training room, offices, lounge area and wrap-around raised viewing terrace. It is scheduled to open in the summer of 2010.

TCU Athletics Scholarships/Annual Revenue Cost Analysis 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 2008-09, the total surpassed $4 million for the second year in a row, yet it still represents less than half the total cost of funding TCU’s 300 athletics scholarships.

GIVING FOR A PURPOSE “I enjoy collegiate athletics a great deal, and feel that it is very important for women to have the best available opportunities and facilities in order to play at the highest level. I’m proud that my gift will provide an opportunity for a TCU Horned Frog to compete and excel with any program in the country.”

- Sherri Parker Lee ‘68 Contributed the first fully endowed women’s scholarship at TCU via bequest intention

“I felt it necessary to make a commitment to Texas Christian University and the endowed scholarship program because I feel it is time for ex-student athletes and alumni to assist TCU with its success well into the future. There is no better way for TCU to recruit future student-athletes than to show them the success of past studentathletes combined with their future commitment to the school.  This commitment is evidenced by TCU alumni giving back to the institution that provided them with a first-class education.”

- Bill ’86 and Rita ‘86 Starkey Contributed the Bill Starkey Football Scholarship endowing a defensive back position

“TCU has had a positive impact on our lives, and we are grateful for the opportunities afforded us through attending such an outstanding institution. We’re excited about being able to give something back to a football program that is operating in a firstclass manner with quality student-athletes. It is our hope that all 300 scholarships for men’s and women’s athletics will be fully endowed.”

- Ron ’76 and Paula ’77 Parker Contributed the Ron and Paula Parker Endowed Scholarship which supports the tight end position

Facilities Upgrades

Dutch Meyer Athletics Complex and Abe Martin Academic Enhancement Center Named for legendary TCU coaches, the $13-million, 40,000-square-foot Dutch Meyer Athletics Complex and Abe Martin Academic Enhancement Center opened in September 2008. With six suites and 255 club seats, the facility sits atop the Walsh Complex and features an expansive club lounge for socializing and premier dining while watching the Frogs. The building also includes increased academic space and team meeting areas. It was funded completely by nine donors. Revenues from club seating and suites go directly to supporting athletics scholarships through the Frog Club.

Future Projects

Amon G. Carter Stadium renovation The Amon G. Carter Foundation has committed $15 million to lead the effort to renovate TCU’s Amon G. Carter Stadium. In upgrading the 78-year-old facility, TCU hopes to create the Camden Yards of collegiate football by maintaining the stadium’s retro look and vintage charm, following the model of the Orioles’ ballpark in Baltimore. Initial plans call for preserving the stadium’s lower bowl and replacing the upper deck. While the stadium will have all the amenities of a 21st century sports venue, the new structure will have the ambience of the era in which it was originally constructed. The project will be split into three phases, including west, east and south side renovations. The west stands will be rebuilt to their current height so that the stadium will have the same presence on campus and in southwest Fort Worth that it does today, but the fan experience will be vastly improved. A committee headed by Board of Trustees Vice Chair Clarence Scharbauer III ’73 worked with HKS, a sports design and architecture firm, as well as the CSL marketing group, to develop concepts and research fans’ reactions to possible changes. A funding feasibility study is now under way. The timetable for the project will depend on TCU’s ability to raise funds, and all monies must be in hand before the University breaks ground.

Olympic sports COMPLEX Twelve of TCU’s 20 Division I programs would benefit from a planned Olympic Sports Complex. The $16-18 million facility will provide offices and locker rooms for the six Men’s and Women’s Track and Field teams, Men’s and Women’s Golf, Soccer and the Rifle and Equestrian teams, as well as coaches’ offices for Baseball. A new golf facility will be part of the complex, as will an outdoor, short-game practice range with greens and sandtraps. The complex will also feature sports medicine and strength/conditioning facilities tailored specifically for TCU’s Olympic sports. A heritage center will tell the teams’ stories. Early architectural designs show a complex that takes its styling cues from the John Justin Athletic Center. The first floor will house locker rooms and common space for the teams, while the second floor will feature coaches’ offices. Since TCU will not break ground on the complex until all funds for the project have been received, fund-raising feasibility interviews are under way. Adding urgency to the process is the need to move Olympic sports coaches’ offices and locker rooms from Amon G. Carter Stadium before work can begin on the planned stadium renovation.

Corporate Partners TCU values its association with ISP Sports, 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 2008-09 year was a record year as ISP Sports partnered with 154 sponsors. ISP Sports revenues were a new high of $2.2 million. These monies go toward supporting the academic and athletic goals of TCU Athletics and the University.

Sportsmanship on the highest stage Rifle team standout Erin Lorenzen received the Mountain West Conference’s Hal Rothman Sportsmanship Award in May. The three-time All-American routinely portrays the ideals of sportsmanship and competitive respect, and her character was never more evident than during the 2009 NCAA Rifle Championships in Fort Worth. During the air rifle competition, Lorenzen self-reported a misfire and subsequently received a zero score.
