In a social media post on Monday, TCU Horned Frogs linebacker Dylan Jordan alleged head coach Gary Patterson used a racial slur in front of players, according to 247Sports.

“In a year’s time at TCU, I’ve met a lot of people and have really fallen in love with the location and atmosphere here,” Jordan wrote on Twitter. “As a student-athlete you go through and do many things others don’t. You learn a lot of things, like sacrifice.”

“On the football side of things, life has been really rocky since arriving at TCU,” Dylan continued. “I were promised early playing time during recruitment, which never happened. I’ve asked [for a] way I can get on the field, even suggested moving positions. [That] never happened. This past Sunday was our third practice of fall camp. Coach Patterson called me out for posting my [girlfriend] on National GF Day in front of the defense.”

“As practice moved on, he approached me about it. He then said, ‘you’re a fucking brat, I’ll send you back to Pitt.’ He followed with, ‘you’ve been saying niggas in the meeting room.’ This morning, I show up for practice and multiple players approached me and asked if it was true. I told them yes and how everything happened. We refused to go to practice this morning, and he came to the locker room and said, ‘I wasn’t calling him a nigger.’ This behavior is not okay now or ever and there needs to be repercussions to these actions.”

  • In a recent interview with ESPN, College Football Bowl Association executive director Nick Carparelli said there’s a chance we see postseason bowl games pushed into the spring. From the interview, per Sports Illustrated: “Once the season does officially kick off, the conferences will come together with their bowl partners and talk about when does the bowl season start, how long is it, and when does it need to end? Similar to the regular season, the answers to those are going to be different than what they typically are,” Carparelli said. “I’m not so sure that just because conference championship games are played on the 19th that the bowl season can’t still start on that date. Typically, teams that are playing in conference championship games are not playing on that first week of the bowl season anyway. I’m not suggesting that’s how it’s going to happen; it’s just one example of how we all need to be open-minded and flexible this year, not rule anything out.”
