The TCU Horned Frogs stunned the college football world with an announcement that the program was parting ways with head coach Gary Patterson after 21 seasons at the helm.
As many know, Patterson was the life force that resurrected the often stepped over Horned Frogs, leading the charge through three conference realignments, ending in the Big 12.
It was time, obviously, but Patterson is a legend. 20 years ago TCU was barely distinguishable from Rice and could have just as easily wound up in the same place. https://t.co/C95YRPwmPM— Matt Hinton (@MattRHinton) October 31, 2021
