GP is taking a different tactic in the second-half of the season, going much easier on his team than he normally would. But he is also showing the leadership that makes him so great, taking accountability upon himself instead of just blaming his players. And, they are improving, slowly but surely.

It was a very scary scene on Saturday, as TCU DT Aaron Curry’s chin strap got knocked down and began choking him. Thankfully, several people were quickly able to free him, and Patterson said Monday that he’s “doing great”. We are all very thankful for that.

TCU will play with a chip on its shoulder this Saturday, eager to get beyond last week’s awful showing in Morgantown.
