TCU has to be in a tough spot with Patterson, right?

This year's defense has to be one of his worst.

He's their Fry/Snyder/Beamer. Its gotta be tough to pull the trigger on that.
Yep, it will be but I think it would probably be for the best for the program right now. Program has gone stale and I'm doubtful that Patterson will get the "mojo" back.

With Texas & OU leaving that maybe will help them a bit in the Big 12 but not sure on that.

I know it's a Message Board after a loss but quite a few "Fire Gary" & "Patterson Sucks" posts on there.

If they “fire” him, it would be a mutual resignation/retirement. Let’s not have that introduced this season where we play then the last week.

You just know that's how it will play out though. "Win one for Gary!" with ISU's championship aspirations hanging in the balance.

Remember how much latitude KSU got against ISU the year Snyder "retired", be ready for that.

people forget that tcu is not a powerhouse historically -- gary has the best winning percentage since francis schmidt (1929 - 1933)

most the records in between when gary started and 1933 are .500 and below

if their big cigars have someone lined up who is young and they're confident in (like a stoops -> lincoln riley deal), I don't think it would be a horrible idea to make a move, but historically speaking there's a bigger chance of potential downside than upside -- unless they luck out with the right guy

Luckily ISU is better than that and TCU is very beatable so ISU will have it on themselves to rise up and play well.
