Student body presidents encourage good sportsmanship
September 28, 2011
SMU & TCU Student Bodies:
Whether cheering for the Purple and White of TCU or the Red and Blue of SMU, this upcoming weekend will provide great excitement for all.
The TCU vs. SMU football game has always been a long-standing cornerstone of the football schedule for both universities. Historically speaking, the “Battle for the Iron Skillet” started in 1915 and has been played 89 times since then. Great rivalries always require competitive games, which TCU and SMU traditionally deliver. Since TCU barely leads the series in wins (43 to 39 – with 7 ties) everyone knows this year’s game will be an incredible one.
Graduating from either TCU or SMU is no longer something to be taken lightly, but rather an incredible honor. As our universities continue climbing the national rankings, be reminded how privileged we are to attend either university. SMU students, as you travel to Fort Worth, and TCU students as you host and welcome SMU students, please continue to uphold the values of both universities.
Neither university wants to see conflict nor misconduct effect this upcoming beautiful Saturday afternoon. Students, please allow our marching bands, cheer squads, and football teams to battle on the field with an unbridled spirit. We, however, do not need to replicate this battle in either the pregame festivities around tailgating or the student section inside the stadium. Respect one another and the day will go smoothly.
As you throw up the Horned Frog for TCU or Pony Up on behalf of the Mustangs, enjoy the upcoming weekend. Represent your school well, and we will see who gets to take home the Iron Skillet in the end.

Top five strangest moments in the 2013 TCU football season
From beginning to end, the 2013 TCU football season could be accurately described in just one word: bizarre.
From officiating anomalies to wildlife on the field, there were many moments in 2013 that left Horned Frog fans scratching their heads. Some were under TCU’s control, others were not, but they all made this season a memorable one.
Here are the top five strangest moments for TCU in 2013:
Women’s basketball grinds out win over Stephen F. Austin
It wasn’t pretty, but TCU got the job done Wednesday night against Stephen F. Austin, winning 60-52 to stay unbeaten at the Daniel-Meyer Coliseum this season.
The Frogs had another slow start, trailing early 12-2. The Ladyjacks had several offensive rebounds early to put the pressure on the Frogs to mount a comeback before halftime.
TCU (5-3) took advantage of good defense and poor shooting by SFA and only trailed by four before Zahna Medley beat the halftime buzzer with a desperation heave to cut the lead to one.
