“Hopefully the people who sit in these chairs realize they have a responsibility to tell the truth, a responsibility to hold us accountable for what we do right and what we do wrong,” said Chris Del Conte, TCU’s director of intercollegiate athletics. “Journalism has lost its soul in a lot of ways and hopefully today, when people walk into this room, they’ll realize they can find it in the Dan Jenkins Press Box.”

The press box was part of an extensive renovation to the football stadium that started in late 2010. Read more.
