UPDATE (5:27pm): The Frogs are officially Norman-bound. Their Amtrak train successfully departed Fort Worth on time, but not before some great photo opportunities:


UPDATE (4:47pm): Trent is at the train station and ready to go. Frogs are scheduled to depart for Norman at 5:25pm. Game is still on for 1:00pm tomorrow.


UPDATE (3:58pm): A last ditch effort to get tomorrow's TCU vs. Oklahoma men's basketball game in as scheduled appears to have succeeded. After being unable to take their regularly scheduled charter to Norman, the Frogs are bound for the Sooner State via train. As of right now, the game is still scheduled to take place tomorrow at 1:00pm from the Lloyd Noble Center in Norman. The alternate travel plans saved a major scheduling headache for both teams, as it would have been difficult to fit the game in before the beginning of the Big 12 Tournament on March 11.

Original Post (2:52pm): Due to weather-related travel issues, the TCU men's basketball game against the Oklahoma Sooners has been postponed. The Frogs' charter is unable to travel as a result of poor road conditions between Fort Worth and Norman.

We're awaiting an official word from the TCU Athletic Department, but it appears that rescheduling the game could be a bit of a challenge. Oklahoma is scheduled to travel to Ames on Sunday for a Big Monday showdown with the Iowa State Cyclones. The Frogs will be making a trip to the Sooner State on Wednesday to take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys, but both TCU and OU have games scheduled for next Saturday, so fitting in a makeup game could be tough. Then the Big 12 Tournament begins in Kansas City on Wednesday, March 11.

The Big 12 Conference probably wants to get this game in somewhere, as it will likely impact seeding for the Big 12 Tournament. The Sooners are currently tied for second place in the league with West Virginia and Iowa State. TCU's seeding is a bit more secure, as the Frogs are all but locked into 9th place - two games behind Texas for 8th and two and a half games ahead of Texas Tech for 10th.

We will keep you updated as more information becomes available.
