Why do so many deem to think that Patterson should leave TCU?! He has been successful and well recognized at TCU. Could it be that he is comfortable where he is?

He has brought his college into national recognition and earned the respect of his peers throughout the coaching ranks. He has been able to recruit against a large number of in-state colleges and succed. Think what he might be able to do coaching in a BCS conference!!

Why not accept that he is happy where he is, against large odds, he has brought TCU to the national scene, won the respect of his peers, and essntially put Fort Worth at the front of football athletics.

Gary is in a high profile program or did you forget he consistently beats the big twelve. Finished second in the country ...fifth the year before, just won the rose bowl and continues to build teams that none of your"high profile teams want to stand under the lights with ever!( tx tech canceled each of the last two years). Your so called high profile teams are dropping like flies . Univ of Texas wasnt even bowl eligible. Trussel and Ohio state are clearly cheating. USC ignored Reggie Bush living in a house worth a million with his Heisman and family.. Etc etc. Gary Patterson is an honorable man that has made a bigger statement in college football than any of your so called high profile teams in the past five years. A defensive genius changing the game and dominating in a school of 6500 students. Meantime notre dame is getting sued by their famous x coach. The real truth is those high profile coaches would love to have tcu's talent and respect! Dominate college football the ROSE BOWL with a tiny private school...HOW MUCH BIGGER A STATEMENT CAN YOU MAKE!
