TCU's Patterson almost apologizes for post-Oklahoma comments 
10/05/2016
 

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - TCU coach Gary Patterson almost apologized for some of the comments he made about officials when upset after the Horned Frogs' loss to Oklahoma. 
 
Patterson said Tuesday that he's passionate in his job, and could count about six times in 19 seasons saying something in postgame that he later regretted. 
 
After a 52-46 loss at home Saturday night, Patterson was admittedly upset with the officiating, especially an intentional grounding call against quarterback Kenny Hill on TCU's final drive. The coach then also talked about a lack of a holding penalty, and even took a swipe at Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield. 
 
"In this day and age when nobody ever says it's their fault, nobody tells the truth, nobody does anything, I don't really want to be a part of that group," Patterson said Tuesday. "So one of the things I'd have to say, when it came to the officials, Baker, any of them, the bottom line to it is, is that you have to be bigger than all of it." 
 
The Frogs went into the fourth quarter down by 25, but scored 22 consecutive points before an Oklahoma field goal, and then had the ball one last time in the closing minutes.
