Archived online exhibit from 2009

Grace wanted a mascot that would help create a fun atmosphere at sporting events. The Daily Skiff reported that “Frog Fever” transformed TCU's mascot from a “mild-mannered cardboard box to the new ‘SuperFrog’ that looks like a cross between a TCU linebacker and the monster in the movie ‘Alien’.”
