TCU's Indoor Practice Facility Receives Award

FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU's Sam Baugh Indoor Practice Facility earned the Linbeck Group a 2008 AGC/Quoin Summit Merit Award sponsored by the Association of General Contractors.

A longtime partner with TCU, Linbeck received the honor for developing the project to TCU's satisfaction and recruiting needs while overcoming the adversity of several weather-related obstacles.

The Sam Baugh Indoor Practice Facility was completed on schedule despite incurring 42 days of downtime from the wettest year on record in Fort Worth. A high wind storm also caused the facility to lose its entire roof structure after it was 50 percent complete.

"We are very appreciative of our outstanding relationship with the Linbeck Group and congratulate them on this well-deserved honor," TCU associate athletics director Ross Bailey said. "The Sam Baugh Indoor Practice Facility is first class in every regard and is the result of a great team effort."

The AGC/Quoin Summit Merit Award recognizes work completed in the calendar year and in various cost categories. The 80,000 square-foot Sam Baugh Indoor Practice Facility was a $7 million project.


As some of you may know, the Frogs are currently hosting the MWC tournament at Lupton. We are riding a streak of 4 straight conference tournament wins and are the top seed this year. If we manage to win the thing, we could host a regional in the CWS. Now, I personally don't care about baseball, but this seems like a huge deal, and probably the biggest accolade any TCU team will have until the 09 football recruits start coming in to form. Unfortunately, we dropped our game last night against the #2 seed UNM and need a win today, and then possibly two more wins against UNM, to win the tournament. So, you guys in FW need to drag your drunken asses away from suckling at Mickelson's bitch tits at the Colonic and head over to Lupton today at 3:00 to watch the Frogs beat Utah (who is apparently a big 'sleeper' pick for the tournament). Besides, all the girls at the golf tournament are just there to get knocked up by a golfer so they can ride the child support gravy boat, so you aren't missing anything.

Charges dropped against former TCU basketball players
Long story (that didn't happen) short: Say girl, I owe you for that burger, come to my dorm. Here drink this. She's out, its sexy time. Shit, she woke up before I finished.

Frogs' ninth-inning rally falls short
Senior righthander Stephen Smith allowed just one earned run and seven hits in 8 2/3 innings as New Mexico held off a furious TCU ninth-inning rally for a 3-2 victory Thursday night at the Phillips 66 Mountain West Conference Baseball Championship at Lupton Stadium.

Closer eyes next level
Trevor Hoffman, Padres closer and all-time save leader, enters the ninth inning to "Hell's Bells" by ACDC. Yankee great Mariano Rivera walks to the mound to "Enter Sandman" by Metallica. What song does junior closer Andrew Cashner intimidate opposing batters with? "Guitar Town" by Steve Earle - a song that describes his personality more than his sizzling upper '90s fastball or knee-buckling slider.

The Frogs play Utah at 3pm today at Lupton in an elimination game. If they win they will face New Mexico again this evening. Go support them if you are in Fort Worth and have nothing to do. If we sweep today, we earn a spot in the championship game tomorrow against New Mexico. (We would have to beat them twice since they beat us yesterday)
