  1. How will Gary Patterson handle what he calls an “unbelievable rule” change in CFB?

    TCU coach Gary Patterson is adapting to change this fall camp.

    The NCAA’s new “redshirt” rule that allows players to play in four-or-fewer games without losing a year of eligibility is forcing Patterson and the Horned Frogs to approach camp differently.

    “We’re working with the three’s and four’s a lot,” Patterson said after a recent practice.“How do you get those guys on the field? They may not play offense or defense, but they start four games on special teams. If you punt it eight times, that’s 32 plays that someone doesn’t have to take. Then, you put the next redshirt in the next four games then you have 64 plays someone didn’t have to play. For us, everybody is being tested a lot more than we ever have.”

  2. It will be interesting to watch how Patterson evolves with this.
     
  3. As paranoid as Gary is about letting out information about practices, he should be doubling up on how he is going to handle this new rule. That is something that other places CAN duplicate...hopefully he keeps that close to the vest as well.
     
  4. Fresh players = Mo players, Mo hits, Mo reps, Mo experience

    TCU gonna get strong.
     
  5. Because all other NCAA coaches are ignoramuses who couldn't possibly figure out how to utilize this rule without copying Coach P?

  6. if we're punting 8 times a game then we need to get some of those 3s and 4s in on offense and give them a shot.
     
  7. 4 games for Robinson.
    4 games for Collins.
    4 games for Rogers.

    Boom, another year of eligibility for all three.
