needs to be our top choice. Defensive minded, knows to hire a good OC, knows Texas recruiting, makes the most of his lesser talent. Do it.

Funny, Patterson ain't leaving TCU. Why leave the current best football team in Texas, in a town that loves him?

Because it's factually correct, whereas saying he will never leave TCU is factually incorrect.

Well no matter what you think there's still some uncertainty with big12 future. Where do you think tcu would land when it comes down? There's your answer

Why?

He says he has five places he would leave TCU for. I don't think we've ever approached him.

False. He's not leaving ever. And like bayside says almost any school can match whatever we want to try and pay him.

He and his wife are intertwined heavily with TCU booster business and real estate. The guy is pretty much tied into tr local Fort Worth community. And besides, TCU boosters could match anything we offered him. There's a reason you never hear his name when jobs open.

Which part is false? I know for a fact he has a list of five places because he said so in an interview.

Is Bayside an authority on Patterson?

So he lied when he said he has five places he'd leave TCU for? OK.

I'm unconvinced the Big XII goes anywhere at this point. The only feasible conference spot for the sips and sooners is the PAC, and no one else gets an invite. Big XII adds two-four programs and continues.

"Patterson, whose TCU team plays Oregon in the Alamo Bowl in San Antonio on Jan. 2, said he has a list of five places he would leave TCU for, given the chance, but he's not going to disclose them.

"Here's what I always say I always say, 'Never say never,' because there are people that say they'll never leave and then they go," he said. "So I never say never. But just look at my track record and how I've approached things."

What interview and when was it?

Back when A&M hired Sherman, Patterson wanted a call but didn't get it. That ship has sailed.

I have family that are frogs, and as bay said, he is extremely tied into the infrastructure there at TCU. It would not be easy for him to leave even if he wanted to.

And don't forget his wife is from there and they love it and the school has a statue of him.

He has annuities in place that pay out to him (or his family if he dies) for life as long as he stays and then retires at TCU. There's a statue of him in front of their offices. He's not leaving TCU unless it's in a pine box.

Against the worst conference in college football.

He would have been fired twice already for his record here.

"I'm about fit," Patterson said. "And I tell coaches all the time you got to make sure you don't go for a title, you don't go for money, you go for fit. Is it better? Is it going to be a better experience for you? And I try to help them if that's what they want. I'm not one of those guys that gets upset, throws things, all that kind of stuff. They helped me be where I'm at, so if it's right for them, then they should do it."
TCU versus A&M. How would that "fit"??? How would A&M be a better fit than the medium expectations of a small fan base in Fort Worth?

This. Tcu will make sure he's compensated enough that he will never leave. Even if one of those 5 teams come calling.

Not to mention his wife is also a UT Alum. You will NEVER catch she or Gary "bending over" on the A&M sideline.
Gary may have his top 5 but A&M isn't one of them.

So Patterson is all about being paid without the stress of high expectations, if I understand your take. Ok. What other five locations would improve that?

I'm not going to draw any conclusions from his comments because I don't know "fit" means to him, other than not choosing a school based on the criteria he laid out.

He said "i would leave TCU", but he would stay if money whipped? He also says money would not be the reason he left. I know it's hard to accept the truth, believe me I do.

IDK which programs or ADs he would feel comfortable with working for. Maybe Notre Dame? Stanford? USC?

Patterson ain't leaving TCU. He controls TCU. He doesn't answer to anyone. He doesn't suck up to boosters. He develops teams.

I think to say he said "I would leave TCU" is actually reading more into it. Gary handles the media very diff than most college coaches. I honestly think he was making a point about how he will never say never like some guys do.

I guess if you want to break it down into extreme absolutes, sure I guess he could leave. But in practical terms, he might be one of the most difficult coach in America to get away from his current school. Is it possible, I suppose.

Now, I do think one game changer could be if something happens to the big 12 soon and he could see TCU being left out. And being his age, I could possibly see him wanting a chance at a title

I still say the timing is such that A&M makes no sense.
