Cradle of Champions

If you have visited Sundance Square in the past week or so, then you would have probably noticed this 16 foot tall steel structure parked in front of the ESPN tent. The sculpture is made out of steel and other materials from high school stadiums around the State of Texas to commemorate Texas high school football players that made it to the NFL. It is a sight to see if you get the chance. But if you don't get the chance to see it this week, then guess what? You get to see it anytime you want coming next year. That's right!! According to this article on ESPN, Mayor Moncreif has decided that the best final resting place will be right in front of the freshly renovated Amon G. next year. Mayor Moncrief has done so much for TCU in the past few years, and this is another great gesture by the Mayor. We are going to have a piece of superbowl memorabilia/new Texas football memorial parked right in front of The Carter. Not only will it look badass, but as the article points out, it could be a good recruiting tool in the future. So, don't worry if you don't get to get out in this cold weather to see the memorial, bc it will be coming to a stadium near you.

To me, this epitomizes the "Camden Yards" persona of our new stadium what a GREAT addition. (/sarcasm font)

Woah, chill bro. I'm just sayin' it looks a little cheasy thats all. Not trying to take anything away from what it symbolizes.

I think it looks cool, but come on no recruits are going to pick TCU because of it.

I agree, but people will still want their picture taken in front of it, and to do that they have to come to TCU.
