Notes On A Scorecard

BOWL GAME TICKET INFO
NEW FROG CLUB WEBSITE
Our new Frog Club website (www.tcufrogclub.com) is set to go live Thursday. One of the exciting new features will be a priority points calculator that will help you project what your new points total will be before you make a gift or purchase season tickets. At all times, you'll be able to know your current ranking in our Horned Frog Priority Points System.
As you might have seen Monday, we've announced an agreement with IMG College for a 12-year extension to our current seven-year multimedia rights partnership. IMG is the nation's leading collegiate marketing firm and a great partner for us. We appreciate Rudy Klancnik, general manager of TCU IMG Sports Marketing, and the outstanding job his team does in representing us in the community with our corporate partners.
OFF TO NATIONALS
Best wishes to Agnes Kemboi as she represents TCU on Saturday in Louisville, Ky., at the NCAA Cross Country Championships. A senior from Kenya, Agnes will forever be in our trivia book as our first-ever All-Big 12 selection.
ON THE DOCKET
If you like basketball, just camp out in the Daniel-Meyer Coliseum over the next week. Between our men's and women's programs, we're in a stretch with six home games in nine days. Before we get into the hoops schedule, make sure to hit the Rec Center today at 5 p.m. as our volleyball program hosts Baylor. The match can also be seen on FOX Sports Southwest. If you buy a ticket for volleyball, you can then show it for free admittance to tonight's women's basketball season opener versus Charlotte. The tip is at 7 p.m. in the DMC. Our women will also be home Friday at 7 p.m. against UCF. New head coach Trent Johnson has our men's team off to a 2-0 start. They continue a season-opening five-game homestand against SMU on Thursday at 7 p.m. We'll also host Prairie View A&M on Sunday at 3 p.m. and Navy on Tuesday night at 6. To fill your football void on Saturday, volleyball has a 1 p.m. home match versus Kansas. Rifle will compete at Kentucky on Saturday, while equestrian, at 1-1 in the Big 12, is at Baylor on Sunday.
MEET THE STAFF
Courtney Holm is in her eighth year as our coordinator of special events. The Brenham, Texas, native, is a 2001 TCU graduate and former Horned Frog cheerleader. Courtney works with our administrative team and Frog Club as well as serving as a liaison with our Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. She is also involved with our CHAMPS/Life Skills efforts. Courtney and her husband, Nelson, a 2000 TCU graduate, have two children: Eleanor and Hudson.
SPANNING THE GLOBE
This week's edition of TCU supporters flashing the Horned Frog sign and apparel from all points worldwide comes from Suzanne Steinmetz. She's joined by her sister, Stephanie Richards, on Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau, Alaska. Please continue to send me (firstname.lastname@example.org) images to share with everyone.
WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
Janice Dziuk is one of our all-time greats in women's basketball. The All-American and TCU Hall of Fame member played in the late 80s and still ranks among the program's career leaders in scoring and rebounding. Janice presently lives in Corinth, Texas, and is the senior national account manager for TYCO Integrated Security. She is still involved with TCU as a season-ticket holder and past president of our Lettermen's Association. You can also see her on TV as the new color analyst for the Horned Frogs' women's basketball games on FOX Sports Southwest.
Many sports have an upcoming period where it is permissible for prospective student-athletes to sign a National Letter of Intent (NLI) with TCU. This period goes from Nov. 14-21. The start of this signing period is surrounded by four days classified as a dead period for recruiting. During a dead period, coaches may not have contact on or off campus. This prevents prospects from coming on unofficial or official visits and receiving complimentary admissions to home contests. The occurrence of a dead period does not affect the legislation relating to telephone calls. The dead period from Nov. 12-15 is in effect for all sports except football and women's soccer, which do not have a dead period in November, and track and field, which has a dead period on Nov. 17.
