Gary Patterson’s Smack Talk vs Baylor – Bulletin Board Material?

September 1, 2011 by: admin

The hatred TCU and their fans have had for Baylor the last 16 years has been off the charts. Sadly, most college aged kids from Baylor are largely unaware of this former rivalry between Baylor and TCU (y’all may not remember but we always played them on Homecoming and you know what that means) or what went down way back in 1994 when Governor Ann Richards and Lt. Governor Bob Bullock somehow snuck Baylor into the Big 12.

How did they sneak in the 29th winningest football team in the country the prior 16 years before the decision to disband the SWC occurred in 1994? Well, obviously, they didn’t, but some people don’t believe man has walked on the moon or the holocaust existed or, if you’re a TCU Horned Frog fan, you can’t fathom that the 29th ranked team in the nation based on winning percentage, a team that won fully 60% of their games, was chosen over the 89th ranked team (out of 104) in the nation (TCU) over that same time period.

That’s all distant history now as TCU routinely trots out their 75th – 88th strength of schedule team to 9, 10, 11, 13 win seasons and is now a national powerhouse, allegedly. How they’d compete against the big boys week in and week out, well we don’t yet know, nor will we know when they move to the Big East. Regardless, Patterson doesn’t want his team sleeping on Baylor, a doormat the 12 years before Art Briles arrived and started turning things around (thanks again Sloan and Stanton).

That said, I thought I’d take a look at some of the quotes Patterson has unleashed in the days and weeks leading up to the game on Friday and see how that compares to the Baylor quotes.

Terrance Gannaway – “Where we’ve got to be this Friday is worry about what we do, execute our plays. The game’s already won. All we have to do is go out there and do what we need to do to get that victory.”

The internet was a buzz with this one. I almost canceled my trip down to Waco because TG told the world the game was already won, but I’ll still show up regardless because the tailgating is pretty sweet. Why can’t these Baylor players show TCU a little respect?!? When will they learn? TG, I’ll still be in the stands watching you run all over TCU, even though we know the games already won.

Art Briles – Allegedly signed an autograph that said “Beat TCU!”

Seriously?!? I mean, when a 22 year old kid doesn’t couch his statements appropriately, I give him some leeway. Briles is 50 something. He’s a MAN! Does he know how Patterson will use this kind of bulletin board material? Why doesn’t he give Baylor a fighting chance?

Patterson – “We get online. We see what’s being said.”

Translation, TCU has the internet. We’re f’d.

Patterson – “Their spring game was on TV. They let their own media people take pictures of practice and put it on online. We have TCU people in Waco.”

Translation, Waco people have tv and some of those Waco people are TCU people. Why does Gary Patterson have to cheat to gain a competitive advantage? I mean, forget the 13 games Baylor played last year which are on tape and easily accessible, including the one Baylor played in Ft. Worth. Maybe Patterson’s people were in Waco for that one.

Regardless, I’m sure Briles went deep in the playbook last spring. I’m just glad this peek behind the iron curtain that is GP’s purple ops, far reaching intelligence gathering operation was revealed in the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram. My expectations for the game tomorrow have noe been appropriately set and for that, Gary Patterson, I thank you.

Patterson – “You don’t hear anything from us.”

Well, based on the above, I’m going to have to respectfully disagree. Sounds like Gary Patterson is the only one talking. Or maybe by us, Patterson means his schizophrenic personalities.

Seems to me that Baylor isn’t doing much talking. Our players better treat this like a rivalry game this year and let their play on the field speak for itself.

By the way, to all the jock sniffers out there that think “bulletin board material” means anything to players and outcomes of games, you really have to get a clue.

    Wait, the Spring Game was on TV and by watching it and getting feedback Patterson was cheating? And wanting to get the most recent information instead of trying to plan a game strategy based on games played last year with people who were drafted/graduated/ran out of eligibility/got kicked off the team and transferred is reprehensible? I think I see part of the problem with Baylor football… THEY HAVE NO CONCEPT OF HOW PROPER COACHING WORKS!

    And until you actually post some actual inflammatory remarks by Patterson or anybody else in an official capacity then sorry, but Gannaway’s quote still wins the public yakking battle.

    Oh, and some of us are old enough to remember the SWC and trust me, we HATED Baylor then too. Most of us don’t feel like Baylor stole our spot in the Big 12 so much as we were appalled that our state government took the time to bully the Bears in. The Conference didn’t really want you but you had friends in high places looking out for you. Things have turned out well for us. Disparage our SOS all you want (but really, if you aren’t in the SEC, the SOS sucks anyway), but the fact is, we’ve made an impact on college football… Baylor hasn’t.

      Are you serious? Patterson’s remarks about the spring game are so ridiculous to the point of being almost unbelievable. What do you think was run in the spring game that would tip anyone off about anything? Yep, that’s the straw that broke the camel’s back and will give tcu the win. What an idiotic fan base.

      And how do you have to bully in the #29 team in the nation who won a couple of conference championships the prior 16 years, played in and won many bowl games and finished 2nd or 3rd in the conference many times?

      Why again did Baylor not deserve to win? We did way more than tcu, more than tech and possibly more than UT did in that same period.

      I’ve never heard any frog whine about anything but the only reason we got in was because some 70 year old woman put us in. What a joke. So bitter…

        Dude… you take every opportunity to watch every little thing about your opponent. A great coach uses every little thing to come up with a counter. Sure Baylor didn’t show all of their tricks and they didn’t reveal their whole playbook, but Patterson will look at every little detail… a subtle change in RGIII’s throwing style, a new player’s characteristics, somebody lining up in a different spot. This is one of the dumbest tirades I have ever seen the Baylor faithful use in their creepy obsession with Gary Patterson. I have no doubt that the other coaches in the Big 12 took a look at your Spring Practice as well… then again, maybe not since they seem to have no regard for you as a serious opponent.

        Here are the facts. UT and A&M were going to the Big 8. That’s all they league wanted. Tech was UT’s little brother and got included in the deal and that meant they needed somebody else. Baylor had political backing and got the nod, but the fact is, if Texas A&M and UT had gotten their way, you and Tech would have been cast offs as well. Hell, in all of the realignment talk of last year, did you notice that Baylor was never mentioned in moving with the Big Boys? You might have had a decent to solid record, but that’s not why you got in. In the last 20 years of the SWC, Baylor won 1 conference title, 4 out of 9 Bowl Games, ranked in the AP final 4 times (last in 86) and won 125 games, lost 97. I mean yeah, that’s okay, but it’;s not like Baylor was a bunch of world beaters. Hell, Houston during that same stretch had 1 conference title (and 3 co-champs), won 3 of 7 bowl games, ranked in the AP final 6 times (last in 90) and won 115 games. You got lucky with the Big 12 and now you are a perennial doormat that the big schools will drop like a hot potato at the first opportunity.

        And as for Tech and UT, you went about .500 against those two schools the last 20 and UT was still more impressive.

    I am sorry, did anyone at Baylor go to English class? These are so poorly written I am having serious problem figuring out your points. Go Frogs, and an education.

    • TCU sucks says:

      Really? Academic smack talk?!?

      so sad and lame. Way to castigate an entire student population because of 1 poorly worded quote from a football player.

      tcu football, success built on the backs of midgets
