He even has a long-term friendship with former TCU Athletic Director and current athletic director at the University of Texas at Austin Chris Del Conte.“We knew that going into the Big 12, it might take a little while for all the sports to be competitive,” he said. “Here we are six years later… and we’re in good shape.”Many TCU fans agree since eight TCU sports are currently included in their respective Top 25 rankings.Much of the conversation, however, focused on football and the planned upgrades at Amon G. Carter Stadium.A rendering of the upgrades of Amon G. Carter Stadium. Courtesy of TCU Athletics Facebook“Our biggest goal is to get the fundraising and get the shovels in the dirt, so to speak,” Donati said “It just completes the stadium. That’s what I’m really excited about.”Donati called the upgraded Amon G. Carter Stadium “the most comfortable experience in the country.”Speaking about his role as athletic director, Donati said he’s here to do four things.His goals are to provide a world-class experience for student-athletes, help them become better leaders and better citizens, help student-athletes graduate with a TCU degree and compete for championships.Donati concluded his show by answering a few questions, the first of which was about the reasoning behind canceling the home-and-home series with Ohio State. Donati called it a business decision and said TCU had to make the decision because of the economic benefits included.As for any change he’d like to see at TCU, Donati suggested expanding to add more facilities, but added that TCU “is the best place in the country.”last_img read more

It comprises 12 nations; Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Sweden and the UK – all of which contributed to NATO Exercise Trident Juncture. Armed Forces Minister Mark Lancaster led discussions on the subject, stating the importance of getting on the front foot against disinformation and warning that the threat of hostile and brazen disinformation is increasing.Armed Forces Minister Mark Lancaster said: As NATO’s biggest exercise in a decade draws to a close, it is clear we are best equipped to deterring threats when working side by side with allies and partners.center_img However, we face more than just the conventional threats of old, which is why the UK plays a leading role in all areas of defence including debunking the kind of hostile disinformation we saw from Russia following the tragic attack in Salisbury.last_img read more
