Chip Brown of OrangeBloods.com tweeted the following on Thursday afternoon:
"Texas A&M fans would rather have Mike Sherman or Gary Patterson? You could have had Patterson. That's a fact."
So when Mac Engle of the Dallas Morning News brought the tweet to the attention of TCU head coach Gary Patterson, the Horned Frogs coach responded, "That's a lie. Nobody at Texas A&M ever contacted me. ... He's a liar. It's just like the Kansas State job."
Brown is the reporter who broke most of the Big Twelve / Pac-10 conference realignment stories.
With a serious stadium redevelopment (photos)underway at TCU, don’t expect Patterson to jump ship this off-season.
TCU plays at SMU tonight at 8 pm EST on ESPN.
