No, I did in fact mention those 11 and 12 year wins in my post. I only included the last 5 years because at any other name school that’s all that counts.

It’s been 10 years in the “New and Worse” Big 12 and TCU either has a losing record or right at .500 overall. With no Nebraska or Colorado or A&M and UT during their worst ~ 10 year stretch of the last half century or more.


Why do you keep suggesting TCU should act like a "name school?"  

They aren't one.

Which is precisely why folks are surprised.

Who will they get, that will do better?

I guess I’m not arguing this point. I’m arguing that TCU was and still is an imposter. They were perceived to be, by some, an up and coming “helmety” program due to their string of success after the SWC and until their B12 debut. 

I mean honestly as a program all you can do is win the games you play, and they did. And winning the Rose Bowl is certainly a big deal but they did not have to go through an entire tough season to get there. They only needed to beat the Fresno States and SMU’s of the world and watch everybody else lose to each other.

Look at their record pre and post Big 12. 11+ win seasons left and right, and then after the Big 12 a couple of successful seasons followed by 4-7 win seasons. They’re an imposter, but Patterson got them that far. Now they’re about to find out how tough it really is to be a successful program who struggles to fill a 30,000 seat stadium even when they’re winning.

You don't like TCU.  We get it.  Even the cows get it, at this point. :)

Actually I have a healthy respect for them like the little program that could. I just never thought they deserved their ranking or all the hype generated for going 11-12 wins in the WAC/CUSA space. 

Word is several big name programs tried to get Patterson but either TCU paid him a hefty salary or he just really liked it there.

At one point, either after firing Mack or firing Strong, it was rumored that he he was offered by, and turned down, Texas.  I heard that one on the internet, not from any of my actual insiders, but it's certainly possible.

It will be interesting to see what programs, if any, come after Patterson.

There will probably be a bunch of HFC openings after this season, or sooner than that in some cases.

Tech is looking.  Maybe they hire Patterson and turn around and kick TCU's butt for several years.  That would be funny.

How bout LSU
They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

How bout LSU
One of the guys on OKC sports radio said yesterday that a contact in Baton Rouge told him that LSU is preparing to offer Lincoln Riley $13 million a year to come coach the Tigers.
Sounds outlandish to me, but these are outlandish times.

How much does more money motivate these guys in general?  If LR is making say a measely $6 million now, would double that change his outlook?  Mebbe.  Incidentally, I am available and would be much cheaper.

if Lincoln thinks he can recruit better talent at LSU, he may as well go.  Gonna have to compete in the SEC anyway, might as well get the best recruits possible

Is the ceiling for recruiting at LSU higher than at OU?  I don't really think so, but I suppose I could be wrong about that.
