TCU Celebrates Rose Bowl Berth by Blowing Up Half of Home Stadium

TCU Celebrates Rose Bowl Berth by Blowing Up Half of Home Stadium TCU earned a trip to the Rose Bowl to face Wisconsin on Sunday — putting the Big East-bound Horned Frogs in a BCS game for the second consecutive year.

What better way to celebrate than by blowing up your stadium?

The western portion of TCU’s home field, Amon G. Carter Stadium was imploded on Sunday as part of the $105 million stadium renovation set to complete in 2012. In 2011, the team will continue to play in the half-demolished stadium.

The Horned Frogs last lost a home game in Oct., 2007 against Utah — a streak of 20 games. LaDainian Tomlinson set the single-game rushing record with 406 yards at Amon G. Carter in 1999.

See the destruction below.

Somebody probably isn’t a big Monta Ellis fan.

“Why do basketball articles anywhere, not just at nesn.com, almost always make such a big deal about who the leading scorer was, but seldom mention who had the best plus-minus rating?

The latter, IMO, is a much more revealing statistic, since ball-hogs rarely look as good on it as they do on the points list.”

Apparently, it has taken three weeks to rig up the explosion.
