TCU set to report; alters two start times
The $143 million face-lift won't be finished for the 2011 season, but the Frogs will still call it home. However, to manage certain aspects of game day, TCU has moved two home night games to daytime kickoff: the Sept. 24 game against Portland State has been moved from 6 p.m. to 1 p.m., and the Sept. 30 Friday night game against SMU is now at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1.
The Frogs, 13-0 last season, will have their first practice on Wednesday with temperatures expected to near 110 degrees, likely forcing coach Gary Patterson -- perhaps reluctantly -- to move at least some of the early work indoors.
The Frogs begin a season without quarterback Andy Dalton under center for the first time since 2006. They open on Friday night, Sept. 2 at Baylor on ESPN.
