    I think TCU should fire Gary Patterson and his whole staff

    He is obviously a terrible coach, look at them this year, sure they beat a hapless Cyclone team but it took a td in the last minute to do it with the help of an anomoly punt. Sure I know their have been injuries and defections but those don't matter, how could they. There is no excuse for that proud TCU program to be run into the ground like this. And yes I know that TCU program is proud because of Gary Patterson but so what he stinks. I thought they had the talent to win the Big 12, Gary Patterson should have been building depth these last couple of years. Afterall how many years has he been at the school? This should NEVER happen in year whatever it is. See how stupid some of you sound?

    If CPR had taken ISU the highs that GP has taken TCU, then CPR should be given a pass for taking ISU to the lows GP has taken TCU.

    Problem is, CPR highs are very average, and CPR lows are lower than GP lows.

    You mean the highs before they actually had to play real competition?

    Still beat us....while missing a lot of players as well.

    Must be the color purple (even before the injury excuse).

    Well, Mack was given 3 years and look how he is doing now. I think Patterson should be given a pass of at least 1.5 years to turn things around

    Danny Mac has a much better team this year. Sagarin says they are about forty spots better than us at the moment. Frank Solich too.

    Why do we run such a crappy offense after five years? We have no confidence that we can move the ball when we do get it back. An average defense can shut us down.

    Didn't they win a Rose Bowl? Pretty good "high point" against pretty good competition.

    Also went up to Boise and handed them their only loss a couple years ago.

    Nine top 25 finishes since 2000.

    And as others have said, beat us in Houston in the mid 2000s

    I'm not sure Gary needs to go, but like us, it appears he needs to re-think the offensive side of the ball based on their output the last couple of years.

    Still, in an extremely bad year for them, they still may win six and go bowling.

    Re: I think TCU should fire Gary Patterson and his whole staff

    It's not wins and losses. Look at TCUs games, they were in most of their games. Even the ones they weren't, weren't a total disaster like half of our games have been. Their biggest lost was 23 points to Texas, then 14 to OU. I think we could have lived with those kinds of results in a rebuilding year. Even losing, and losing a lot of players, TCU at least still looks like they belong in the league.

    The big difference is that last TCU drive everyone is talking about. They had a chance to go out, finish a drive and win the game. Guess what they did. Guess what ISU didn't do? If nothing else, Patterson is at least winning the games he should this year. The rest of them, they are keeping it close. I'd gladly take that and with his history, give him a pass for a down year.

    In his first year in real competition, he (gary patterson) won 4 conference games. CPR has yet to reach that number and he is in his 5th year.

    Re: I think TCU should fire Gary Patterson and his whole staff

    What a ridiculous post. Gary Patterson is a proven winner. He's won a Rose Bowl and he's had 4 teams finish in the top 10.

    It took a 1 point win in a bowl game win over an awful Minnesota team in his first season for CPR to record his ONLY +.500 season in 5 years on the job. (And even at that, for the record, I do not think CPR should be fired)
