  1. The AFCA Coaches' National Championship trophy will be at the TCU Kroger at the corner of University Dr. and Berry St. this Friday (10/1) from 1 - 3 p.m.

    Stop by and check it out, get your picture with it.

    BSC trophy at Kroger


    The ultimate goal for the TCU football team is to hoist the BCS championship trophy at the end of the season. But until then, while the Frogs can't actually hold it, they can take pictures with the American Football Coaches Association trophy from 1 to 3 p.m. today at the Kroger near TCU at the corner of University Drive and Berry Street.

  2. I never saw it at Jerry World. Was it there?
     
  3. Sweet! I'm taking Friday off so I'll stop by.
     

  4. Yes. It was set-up on the east plaza side of the stadium, which wasn't the most ideal place, but Cowboys Stadium Operations didn't allow a whole lot of latitude over where to display it.
     
  5. At least the Cowboys Stadium Operations opened the roof since that was clearly the only reason TCU won. :blink:
     
  6. I bet Mike Sherman and Art Briles will come up for that. Only chance they'll get to see that puppy.
     
  7. Why is it at Kroger of all places?
     
  8. It's the "Dr. Pepper National Champion Trophy". Notice all the Dr Pepper cases in the photo? I'm sure they are touring it around to stores near campuses in the Top 10.
     
  9. I wonder how much I can save if I use my Kroger card to buy it.
     

  10. Only schools like USC and Taxas can buy a national championship trophy....
     
  11. Wow. I'm depressed that I've got class that entire time now...
     
  12. Solution: Skip class. Anybody who is anybody skips class to see the National Championship Trophy at Kroger.
     

  13. Merch Frog is correct. Dr. Pepper is the current presenting sponsor of the trophy and they use it as an additional marketing tool.

    During the week, Dr. Pepper coordinates with its vendors in towns that have teams in the national title race to display the trophy at local grocery stores, predominantly near the colleges of the schools in the title race. On the weekend, Dr. Pepper and ESPN collaborate regarding which game the trophy will be showcased on-air. Sometimes they agree, sometimes they don't, and it depends on the circumstances as to who wins out.

    The TCU Kroger appearance was going to be longer, pushed harder and in conjunction with an on-air trophy appearance at the UT v. OU game, but UT crapped the bed against UCLA so the trophy game appearance changed to Oregon v. Stanford. Consequently, the trophy appearance at the TCU Kroger was shortened.

    Dr. Pepper also has a giveaway of free college tuition and the grocery store appearances are used to receive applicants, but that won't be happening either because of the shortened time-frame.
     
  14. If you can't see it on Friday, it will be back in January ... :biggrin:
     
  15. They can save themselves a lot of trouble by just leaving it here.
     
  16. I don't want to waste my time to see some bogus mythical BCS trophy...but that's just me...
     

  17. Fair enough. Just getting the information out there for those that are interested.
     
  18. That is not cool! My last class gets out at 12:50! I will definitely head straight out of Tucker to Kroger!
