Re: LINK to Paul Rhoads press conference in Dallas - 11 a.m. start
Since I haven't seen a thread for comments from other coaches...very interesting comment from Gary Patterson about recruiting, in light of the recents concerns here about having commitments from recruits...
Q. You kind of answered my question, which was going to be about the reception you're getting from recruits now that you're in the new league. But let me ask you, does the new league change your recruiting tactics at all about the kind of players you go after or anything?
COACH PATTERSON: You know, everything I've actually backed up, I felt the last couple of years, with the early commitment stuff, I felt we got -- had a couple of guys come in that maybe it was about getting a great private school education, maybe it wasn't about winning a national championship.
And so if you've noticed in our commitment deal up until lately in the last three, four weeks, I think we only had three or four commitments. I've backed up making sure the guys we do commit to TCU, the old saying it's not the guys that lose that get you beat; it's the one that you take that can play.
