"Oh, you guys have a great football team"...well there is another team as well, a ladies team:
For the T.C.U. Rifle Team, a Second Title in Three Years (note: small bore and air guns)
N.C.A.A. rifle is a coed sport, but is female-only at T.C.U.
As for the team’s popularity, Morrissey said it is slowly, but steadily, growing – even if they sometimes have to remind people that football is not the only team winning at T.C.U.
“When we go through the airport, a lot of people will say, ‘Oh, you guys have a great football team,’” Morrissey said. “We’re like, ‘Yeah, well, our rifle team’s pretty good, too.’”
In 2010, the TCU women’s rifle program became the first all-female squad to capture the NCAA National Championship.
Lorenzen was selected as the Most Outstanding Athlete at the 2010 NCAA National Championships by the Collegiate Rifle Coaches Association. Sarah Scherer became the first-ever TCU shooter to claim an individual national title as the TCU freshman captured the smallbore title.
Erin Lorenzen and Simone Riford became the first shooters in TCU history to earn All-American accolades in each of their four seasons.
Erin Lorenzen became the first TCU student-athlete to earn the Mountain West Conference Hal Rothman Sportsmanship Award, which recognizes one student-athlete every year for his/her sportsmanship and ethical behavior.
Recent college rifle competition results have some people asking: are women better shooters than men?

1. That's nice; Does 'TCU' always think it's so well known, the initials are fine?
Without going to the subscription New York Times, I thought I'd find out who 'TCU' are. No clue on thier website - it's 'TCU' all the time. I had to google the abbreviation to find out. Texas Christian University, for those who don't know (as opposed to, say, "Tanzania Commission for Universities").
