TCU lost to lowly Kansas for the first time since each were Big 12 members. But TCU coach Gary Patterson said every loss is bad, regardless of opponent.

TCU coach Gary Patterson has had three full weekends off in the past year. That’s the demands of a major college football coach with the season, recruiting or doing some sort of speaking or fundraising engagement.

So, yes, Patterson has a lot of respect and admiration for Kansas State coach Bill Snyder, who is still doing the job at age 79.

“You have to applaud him,” Patterson said. “You have to admire a man that it’s what has been his life. K-State has been his life. As an alumni, you have to appreciate his efforts to what he’s done not only for the university, but for that city, for that state. You have to applaud him for all the above.”

At 58, does Patterson envision himself doing this job in 21 years? Of course, Patterson deflected.

“I didn’t say that … I’m trying to win three or four more ballgames here by December,” Patterson said. “That’s what my short-term goals are.”
