UPDATE (1:55 p.m.): Listen to the audio that caused the controversy right here:
I misheard what Gary Patterson said earlier and I apologize for erroneously reporting it. Here's what he said: https://t.co/kx7JsBrueH— Chris Childers (@ChildersRadio) November 12, 2015
Early Thursday afternoon a Sirius XM radio show host tweeted that Gary Patterson had stated on the air that Josh Doctson was out for the season. The tweet has since been deleted, but the internet moves swiftly, and a screenshot was taken.

Of course, the host has started backtracking, and has yet to release the audio from the interview for review. Meanwhile, Gary Patterson was speaking at a donor luncheon, where multiple people have reported he told the room that Doctson was probable for Saturday's game against Kansas.
@Jake_Trotter Patterson speaking right now at donor luncheon. Vaitai and Foltz out this wk. Doctson probable. Slanina probable next wk @ OU— BC_FROG (@BC_FROG) November 12, 2015
Just moments later, ESPN's Jake Trotter was able to confirm, directly from Patterson, that this was the case.
It sounds like things might have gotten lost in translation regarding Josh Doctson. Working to get confirmation from TCU.— Jake Trotter (@Jake_Trotter) November 12, 2015
So, there's your fun for the afternoon!
