What a difference a decade makes.
In 2012, TCU was playing its first season in the Big 12. The move represented a return to the Big Time for the Horned Frogs; after having been a heavyweight as part of the Southwest Conference, the league's dissolution at the onset of the Big 12 left TCU and others on the outside looking in at what would become the BCS auto-qualifying conferences and later the Power Five until their return.
The next year, TCU alumnus Dr. John D. Pasquale would take up the baton at Michigan as the director of the Michigan Marching Band, and at present is the longest tenured in the role since Dr. William D. Revelli retired in 1971. Pasquale's time in the post has included all of Jim Harbaugh's time in Ann Arbor, including last year's playoff appearance.
