    Re: TCU's Patterson to KSU

    Wow. Great hire.

    Agree with the others though. Recruiting in Kansas is tougher than Texas, even with the competition. TCU's campus may be small but it is in the Dallas-Ft. Worth metro and their stadium isn't bad by any means. Getting athletes has never been a problem for them.

    More and more, it looks like Dan Hawkins depended on Chris Petersen for his success at Boise State; the Broncos are just as good, if not better now with Petersen as HC, and Hawkins is floundering at Colorado without him.
    Looks like the same thing with in reverse with Patterson: Dennis Franchione looked great with Patterson as his assistant at New Mexico and TCU, but didn't do so hot at Alabama and Texas A/M without him. Meanhwhile, Patterson took TCU to a new level.
    I think Patterson is the real deal, our rebuilding job in Ames just got tougher.

    For what it's worth - the article has been removed from Rivals... probably just means GP hadn't talked to his players or his staff officially yet...

    I see it differently - the only common thread there is TCU is good. I view the new TCU kinda like I do Butler in basketball - it's self perpetuating. We'll find out.

    Re: TCU's Patterson to KSU

    I think they probably hired him because TCU has more success beating ISU the last 4 years

    TCU should always be good. A major metro team in Texas, an easy conference, and top notch facilities... Not to mention all the 'talent' at TCU...

    Right you are. This is NOT a done deal yet. The guys that run the UT rivals site are on the air right now saying this might be just like the Les Miles to Michigan "rumor" that went out last year.

    Stay tuned....
