Gary Patterson: The Big 12 Admitted To A Dozen Dubious Calls; Officials Will Be Scrutinized

Gary Patterson, speaking to the media following Wednesday's practice, said the Big 12 admitted to getting calls wrong and said the officials in question would "not be having a good week."

Meeting with the media on Wednesday, Patterson said he did file a complaint with the Big 12 and the Big 12 took notice: (From the FWST)

Big 12 officials acknowledged 12 dubious calls in the game, Patterson said.

"There will be some people that will be analyzed," he added.

But Patterson isn't blaming the officiating for the loss. His finger is pointed directly at the offensive play calling and poor tackling on a couple big plays for Texas Tech. He ratcheted up the August-like intensity during TCU's bye week in hopes of knocking some of the angst from his team's psyche.

"You're not in charge of the officials," he said. "A couple breaks and you could have won the ball game. Bottom line is you've got to grow up. When things get tough, the tough get going. So I haven't been a lot of fun to be around. If they can't handle me, they're going to have a hard time handling 90,000 in Oklahoma."

A dozen bad calls? Christ.
