Letter to the Editor: Coach grateful for attendance

Dear TCU Community:

On behalf of our football program, I would like to thank everyone for their tremendous support in providing a record crowd of over 50,000 Saturday night at Amon Carter Stadium. The energy and excitement on campus and throughout Fort Worth all week was outstanding, and our players fed off it. All of you make a difference for us!

With ESPN’s College GameDay being here, we were able to put TCU and Fort Worth in the most positive light. We are especially grateful to Mayor Mike Moncrief proclaiming Friday “Go Purple Day.”

We need to build on this momentum and have everyone back in the stands Nov. 28 when we close our regular season against New Mexico. This will be the final home game for our 13 seniors who have a chance to graduate as the winningest class in TCU history.

This past Saturday was another indication of how a great crowd brings out the best in our players. They can sense something special in the stands as they walk through the tunnel. All of our focus is on Wyoming right now, but you deserve a special thanks for your efforts in helping us against Utah.


Coach Patterson
