You know - it's entirely possible that Patterson is tired of having problem filling up that stadium at TCU, in spite of how small it is. DFW is a huge metropolis with tons of people, but they can't fill up that stadium consistently?
It's been sold out every game this year except the Iowa State game when the idiots at the university scheduled Fall Break on the same weekend as the game. Standing room only crowd was large in the Grambling, Texas Tech and Kansas State games.
Sold out every game except Wyoming in 2010, again the reason it didn't sell out was the idiots who put Fall Break on that weekend.
Last 2 games in 2009 were sellouts, including the still-standing record set against Utah that year.
Attendance has gotten better, and is no longer an issue. Seats have been filled all year this year.
