Important: Micah Ahern needs your prayers and support

+

FOWers, you may have heard of Micah Ahern, the five year old boy battling neuroblastoma who earlier this year was signed up as a member of the TCU baseball team. Recently the news and updates haven't been as positive. He still has a chance to beat this thing but he needs our prayers and support. Please keep him, and his family, in your thoughts.

That 1938 football team

+

Stumbled on this article from TCU Magazine about the 1938 football team. It's worth a read, not only for the history but also for the comparison to today's football programs. For example, this nugget about TCU's Sugar Bowl payout, and the gifts players received:

Estimated "take" from the Sugar Bowl was $50,000 for TCU, but the players came away with some swag too. At a Lion's Club luncheon before leaving for New Orleans, players received two shaving kits, a can of cigarettes with purple leather cover, metal miniature horned frog with purple and white ribbon, personalized pencil with player's name on it, personalized fountain pen with player's picture on it, and passes for two to local movie theater. Players also were invited to attend the TCU Student Council's "Gridiron Hop" for free. For everyone else -- couples or stags -- the price was 65 cents.

LT Takes Ice Bucket Challenge, Extends it to TCU Football

Ladainian Tomlinson took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, and extended it to the San Diego Chargers, TCU Football team, and Darren Sproles. Also, note that he barely flinched when he dumped a cooler of ice water on himself. What a beast.

TCU TollTags

These have been out for a while, but I thought I'd share it anyway. I got mine about a month ago. If you're gonna have a TollTag, it may as well be Purple and White (no red or black)! It's pretty easy. Just call them and request a TCU tag to show your Horned Frog Pride! GO FROGS!!
