TCU receives invitation to join Mountain West Conference
The university will announce whether the Frogs will leave Conference USA Friday.

It’s official: TCU has been invited to the Mountain West Conference.

Now it’s up to the Board of Trustees to decide whether TCU will move to its fourth conference in 10 years.

After months of speculation, athletics director Eric Hyman confirmed Wednesday that TCU has been invited to join the conference. The Board of Trustees will meet Friday in a regularly scheduled meeting and vote on whether TCU will leave Conference USA for Mountain West, chairman John Roach said. He declined to comment when asked which way the board is leaning, but published reports have indicated that the university will accept the invitation.

You suck, you blow.

Cameron Schoepp explores the literal act of breathing in his exhibit at the University Art Gallery.

In Schoepp’s exhibit, “Room to Breathe,” there is not a single sculpture on display or a painting on the walls. Instead, the gallery walls are lined with what appears to be oversized bubble wrap. The only other aspect of the exhibit is the carpet, which is a sharp contrast of blood red and snow white. The colors meet in the middle of the room forming the phrase “you suck, you blow.”

But one commercial did not make the cut.
