    Gunny, there's been many great coaches who are non-aggressive on the field and many lousy ones who were idiots.

    Was this really about Patterson? It made so many references to Bronco (who in the world would compare Patterson to Bronco?) and to Whittingham.

    Sorry buddy, but you should leave your BYU bias at home when trying to wrtie a story 'out of your comfort zone'.

    Coach Patterson is defensive minded, emotional, loves his players and is willing to sacrifice for the team. He embodies what is good about college football - competitiveness and sportsmanship.

    Coach Whit has all of those traits except for the emotional part. The coaching matchup in tomorrows game will be one of the highlights of this game. Hopefully Whit comes out victorious.

    I wish Coach Mendenhall and his coaching staff would be more aggressive like Coach Whit and Patterson. That is waht it will take to get to the next level for BYU Football. This is not a slam on Coach Mendenhall, just my gut feeling. Football is football, coaches need to be football coaches. Lean and mean. Nice Story Dick Harmmon

    Texas to become part of Big East? Travel expense? Not traditional when facing those Eastern Schools. Stay put, maybe BIG XII will be calling soon. Sure, tcu will trounced those big east and will get the automatic to every year but will be left out for NC.

    Patterson's a stud through and through. He fought hard to get the program on the national radar, now nine years later, he is the best program in Texas. That say's something.

    Great story on a really good coach. These interest stories are almost a better read than the buildup about a critical game. It is going to be a battle at RES this Saturday.

    Go Cougars.

    Interesting story. I follow the Y. but Dick Harmon should write out of his comfort zone a lot more often.
