Patterson was at a lunchtime gathering of business leaders and TCU ambassadors in the Champions Club at Amon G. Carter Stadium in an event sponsored by the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce.
When it comes to Big 12 expansion, the coach reiterated his indifference with a new twist. If it helps the Big 12 advance a team to the playoffs, great. “If it doesn’t, don’t.” If he was the sultan of the Big 12 in its current 10-team configuration, Patterson said he’d like to see a championship game only if there were two teams tied. If there’s an undefeated, undisputed champion, then no.
