Nov. 4, 2014
FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU head football coach Gary Patterson held his weekly news conference on Tuesday in the Four Sevens Team Room.
The No. 7 Horned Frogs host No. 9 Kansas State on Saturday at 6:30 p.m.
Included below are excerpts from Patterson's meeting with the media.
Opening Statement ...
On Kansas State ...
On Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder ...
On TCU's defense versus Kansas State's offense ...
On how TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin has improved ...
"For two years, they said he couldn't play quarterback, we won't win and can't do this or that. He's like anybody else I know who has a fire in them. They're going to try to prove people wrong. Like I've been saying for the last two years, he's been one of the more difficult quarterbacks I've played against every day in practice. We just weren't getting it done on the field. This is the game he's going to get judged on."
On learning to play in the Big 12 ...
"It doesn't mean we have to do anything extraordinary. We have to play up to our level in all three phases. For the last couple of weeks, we haven't played that well. We went from one of the top kick return teams in the country to being one of the bottom ones. Young players need to learn that those things are important.
"(Tyler) Lockett can change the whole ball game on the punt and kick returns. Whether it's on offense or special teams, he's a special cat."
