  1. chandler says:

    Wildcats smiley face, to be sure.

  2. TheKid says:

    First, the loss to the “Utes” in the final minutes, now we lose one of the best college coaches in Texas…this must be one of the worst 24-hour periods in TCU history.

  3. DKC says:

    Coach Fran will return in triumph to save the day!!

  4. Davie Dave says:

    Great for him… Bad for TCU… Great for K-State. He will make a good Big 12 coach. K-State will be running with the big boys in a couple of years.

  5. TheKid says:

    Can I also blame this on Obama? What a terrible week.

  6. Tom says:

    While Patterson is certainly a candidate for the job, this report is not sourced or verified by anyone at either school. I checked the Web sites of papers that cover Kansas State and didn’t see any articles on it.
    So this may be a bit premature, Frog fans. If Patterson was to leave TCU, it wouldn’t be for a second-class Big 12 program. But as a KU alum, so my bias is showing.

  7. Tom says:

    Oops. Take out the word “so” in that last sentence. I’m upset that KSU fired a coach who was 0-3 against the Jayhawks, including a 52-21 defeat last Saturday.

  8. JB says:

    Hopefully this will bring some more strength to the Big 12 North. This has been a great season for the Big 12 as a whole and it is finally getting the recognition that it’s deserved. Although the Big 12 north has been a disapointment this year, this move can only improve the overall conference.

    @the kid. No joke. I played ball for TCU. Give me a call to discuss further. I have great season Tix i would like to unload on you for free if you want to go to some games. 214-616-6279

  10. Taylor says:

    Gary Patterson is live on Randy Galloway’s show right now denying it.

  11. Guy in Fort Worth says:

    Gary Patterson is on 103.3 with Randy Galloway right now and he denies the report…

  12. drew says:

    They have also deleted the story from “Powercat”

  13. Tom says:

    So K-State got something wrong. Again. That’s a business as usual for the Purple People.
    Rock Chalk Jayhawk

  14. Brandon says:

    I’m sad to see Ron Prince go…I believe he’s winless against KU NU and Mizzou. Oh well, Rock Chalk indeed.

    And Rock Chalk Barack.

  15. Bethany says:

    So admit it – who got excited enough to pee in their towels with that news?

  16. Cat Fan says:

    Hey there Tom. Dont get too Rock Chalk Chicken Hawk on us.K-Staate need’s a new coach hopfully one that wont need a golf cart to get around the feild. Ha Ha Ha

  17. Bethany says:

    Hopefully one that knows how to spell field, too.

    Mangiant could eat your coach, when you get one. And that fact alone is pretty freakin’ awe-inspiring.
