TCU isn’t dreaming anymore, and head coach Gary Patterson things that’s a good thing | Dallas Morning News

The quote by Patterson at the end of this article is worth reading.

"Greatness always happens somewhere where hard work and dreams meet," Patterson said. "Before the season, you did your dreaming. Now you need to do the hard work. That's what we're trying to accomplish."

This is actually a really good explainer on how the networks pick which games they’ll show, and what times each game will be. Reminder: Game times are not Chris Del Conte’s fault.

This is how the magic of TCU-KU on national TV happens: ESPN and Fox have deals worked with the Big 12, and rotate who picks what games for the 11 a.m, 2:30/3 p.m. and 6:30p.m./7 p.m. slots.

Patterson seems to be doing a great job of keeping the team’s focus on the right things, and his team is saying all the right things, too.

Hill said he doesn't think TCU is anywhere near its potential. "Honestly, I don't think we're that close," he said. "We do some really good things, and then there's times that we get into lulls and all that stuff. I feel like we have a lot more that we can bring in a game. But we're 6-0. We can't complain."

TCU’s schedule is anything but easier the rest of the way.

“There’s not anything easy trying to win next week when you go to Iowa State,” he said. “You get to November, then you’re talking about four emotional games. Because you have three in the state — Texas, Texas Tech and Baylor — so that makes them emotional. And you have Oklahoma. Those are your last four. So for us, we just need to try to navigate October, try to see if we can win by one more point.”
