  1. TCU’s Patterson weighs in: ‘Unacceptable that racism of any kind still exists in 2020’

    By Drew Davison

    TCU coach Gary Patterson and his wife Kelsey posted a social media video message on Sunday night, addressing George Floyd’s death and social injustices spurring protests across the country.

    “It is unimaginable and unacceptable that racism of any kind still exists in 2020,” Patterson said. “The senseless act of violence that we all witnessed broke our hearts and the hearts of our young men that we’ve been charged with to parent, teach, coach and mentor for so many years. We have to do better. I have to do better. We have to be part of the solution. We must change.

  2. Great statement from the Pattersons.

  3. Can't be true, I was clearly told that because we elected a black president that racism was done and over with. Source: Fox News Opinion Hosts Since 2009
  4. Since I work with video and short messages like this I really did not like how he basically read it line by line, not a good look at all considering how shot it was.

    I get you can tell he read it but who cares...so does Trump and Obama, albeit they're better at it than him. It's the words that count. Delivery is a bonus.

  6. Gary has to say something!

    *Gary says something*

    It’s not good enough!

  7. I love Coach P, but this is just "meh".
    I mean, it's better than saying nothing, but it just seemed like a very vague, bland, inoffensive "racism is bad" speech that tries not to ruffle any feathers.
    He doesn't mention George Floyd by name. He doesn't mention police brutality. It sounded like a Miss America answer.
  8. It must be truly miserable to see that message from the Patterson's and instinct tells you its not genuine or meh and assume he wasn't alluding to the horrific George Floyd incident. Good grief some people just love getting off on finding the negative.
  9. Yeah, well unlike a nobody like you, anything GP says can be interpreted in a negative light, so its either stay bland, or piss off half your constituency.
  10. Like I said this weekend, nothing will appease the mob.
  11. I thought the video was just fine, but you really think there's a significant portion of the TCU "constituency" that would be pissed off if he went hard against racism? I hope not.

    It's not like he's not endorsing *Insert Candidate Here* for President. He's speaking out against something everyone should agree is an injustice.

  12. so a written statement on the twitter account of a coach mentioning those things is more impactful even though there is a very good chance the said coaches didn't write the statement as opposed to gary actually saying what he said?

    who as a tcu fan doesn't know that gary at times is akward, doesn't come across the most polished, and at times lets his feeling impact how he comes across.

    sorry he didn't give you his well crafted press release including the key phrases and buzz words of the time. what you got was to me a guy struggling with what is happening
  13. Some people engaging in self immolation, or maybe defenestration, would appease at least some of the mob...

  14. I'd even be happy with some discombobulation.
  15. Posted a question in the relegated thread but I see that I have my answer: CGP posted a comment and we’re not all good.
  16. you realize you aren't being paid by the syllable to post here jackie chiles

  17. AUTODEFENSTRATION - The act of hurling oneself out of a window.

    AUTO DEFENESTRATION - The act of hurling a car out of a window; also, triple points in Scrabble.

    Philly cannot find the proper word or phrase for the act of hurling into a car whilst throwing it out a window, but I looked for it and am open to suggestions.
  18. I appreciate the Patterson's statement.
