Pointless Trivia

In the packet sent for the season ticket renewal's there was a page excerpt on the Club Level seats, with simulated images of what the inside will look like.

Trivia Question: What game is on TV? Outcome? and who is the TCU player?


More of a "challenge" if you look at the season ticket packet, the online photo's have the same game/photo on TV but far easier to clearly see. Post answers in comments. Stupid? yes, but you will get 1/2 frog club point for correct answers, when accompanied with a $100 donation to SB.

A way-too-early look at the postseason

If you are like a lot of fans and are not too familiar with the landscape of college baseball, you might have been under the assumption that beating Texas State on the diamond last night was like beating the them in football. But the Bobcats came into last night's game at Lupton with a 15-4 record and an RPI ranking of #9 in the country, so the Frogs' 3-1 victory is actually a pretty big W. It boosts their own RPI-overnight, mind you- from #41 to #29.

The superb freshmen duo of Andrew Mitchell and Stefan Crichton combined for 8 innings of one-run baseball against a team that had absolutely been mashing the ball so far this season. The two youngsters, who will likely be handed much bigger roles in the pitching staff next year, both have ERAs under 2.00 and impressive strike out to walk ratios.

As we look ahead to the postseason, collegebaseballdaily.com still has the Frogs as regional hosts in their latest regional projections. Projected to be in Fort Worth are #2 seed Baylor, #3 seed Louisville and #4 seed Wichita State. Other teams in this part of the country that are currently listed as potential hosts are Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma and LSU. Looking even further ahead in the projected field, if the Frogs were to advance into the Super Regionals they'd be in a familiar place: facing the Longhorns at Disch-Falk for a third consecutive year.

Spring Game will be at Amon G.

Despite the construction going on, TCU's spring game will be played at Amon G. Carter Stadium on April 2nd, as confirmed in this morning's Star-Telegram. All of the fans will be asked to sit on the east side of the stadium, but Frog Alley will be open for the kiddos (or those of you that still act like one). Might there be a Spit Blood tailgate? Stay posted...
