Calling all rowdy Frog fans!

I talked to a number of people at football games last year that all had the same idea: a section of Amon G. Carter Stadium set aside for young alumni who still want to be vocal & energetic during games- as opposed to acting like we're in church at games, which unfortunately seems to be the norm for most TCU alums.

For a number of years now, those rowdier fans have retreated back to the student section and provided their energy from the top of Section X. But because nobody out there is getting any younger, there will come a point in every Frog fan's life when they are, sadly, too old to sit in the student section.

So instead of continuing to be the old creepertons at the top of the student section, I propose a section of young whipper-snappers closer the the field (and the opposing team's ears) in Section V.

I realize that sitting in X is an easy escape from the "down in front" complaints that you get from older folks who think it's inappropriate to make as much noise as possible when the opposing team is facing a crucial 3rd Down. But if we get enough like-minded fans who want to turn Amon G. Carter into the feared environment that it ought to be, then the whining will be drowned out by our strength in numbers. Who knows, maybe our enthusiasm will even be contagious enough to actually get other fans to join in the fun.

2010 could be another huge season for Frog football, so if you want to be in a section of other rowdy young alumni and help set the tone for the rest of the stadium, call up the TCU Ticket Office and get your season tickets in the first 20 rows of Section V...and get your vocal chords ready. If you can't get season tickets, just come sit down there- we'll make room for you.

Go Frogs.

A bunch of us just purchased tickets in Sec. V. Come join us, unless your a complete douche that doesn't like to stand up and gets offended very easily.

Do they allow standing room only in the areas directly behind the opposing bench without seats in them? I went over there last year against UNLV to heckle the one O lineman who was cheapshotting Jerry Hughes and their was no one in them except cops. Those are large areas where a fairly large amount of people could stand and we would be literally 5 ft, from the players and coaches. Or does the FWPD constantly need a 25 ft radius to stand there and do nothing?

Im glad you picked section V because I purchased season tickets two weeks ago for section V. See you there!

Me and my crew have been in Section V(ictory) for years... we've got old alumni that get rowdy just above the portal

I've been in section V for years. It's where the alumni who don't have kids are supposed to sit.

row 13 is where it's at. You know how some buildings don't have a 13th floor? Well.. I was trying to work that into something awesome, but fail.

Anyway, to answer SSF question, no they don't allow you stand there, and it's SO frustrating. But, from the 12th and 13th rows you can still hurl as many adjectives and expletives as you want at the other team and get heard every now and again/get dirty looks from everyone around you.
