Wednesday Links O'War

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Here are your Wednesday Links O'War. There will be another fun discussion later today and tomorrow, we will have a Q&A with Baseball America's Aaron Fitt.

Gary Patterson’s plan: Turn around TCU football team with tweaks:

Gary Patterson leans forward in his chair, then back. He shuffles papers. Picks up a file folder, taps it on the desk. Puts it down. Leans forward, then back. Then way forward, his head only a few inches off the desk.

If the worst season in Patterson’s 14-year tenure as TCU’s coach had him seeking therapy, well, good luck getting him to lie on a couch.

Gay assistant AD Drew Martin serves as 'Southern story' for younger generation: A really great read about Drew Martin and Southern culture.

"In my mind, I set a lot of roadblocks," Martin said. "Oh, I can’t be gay and work in sports. I can’t be gay and advance in sports. I will lose my career. I will lose my friends. I will lose my family. And that’s an unfortunate mindset and it’s a fear that we have."

Daniel-Meyer Coliseum in midst of $63 million renovation: A little update on the new Run DMC:

TCU Assistant Athletics Director Mark Cohen wrote in an email, "Our new basketball home will be tremendous source of pride for TCU and Fort Worth."

Portrait of a Serial Winner: TCU news is a little scarce. But here's a great piece ESPN's Wright Thompson did on Luis Suarez a month or two ago. After the Vampire's bite yesterday, it's relevant again. It's a lengthy read. But damn good.

Best Case, Worst Case TCU: Per ESPN's Brandon Chatmon. Serves both the pessimist and optimist.

The Horned Frogs put up 63 points as Doug Meacham and Sonny Cumbie debut their offense with laser-like precision. True freshman Foster Sawyer passes for 354 yards and four touchdowns in his first college game, and throws two TDs to Trevone Boykin, who makes a seamless switch to receiver. Horned Frogs fans, taken aback by all the scoring, refuse to leave Amon G. Carter Stadium and party deep into the night after the win.
