Dallas Colleges: ESPN2
That's the home of the sprawling ESPN campus where Patterson will make it a full day of radio and television appearances to campaign for his team's BCS and national championship game worthiness. TCU put itself in a perilous situation with Saturday's 40-35 win over San Diego State.
The win wasn't big enough and No. 4 Boise State closed the gap. Now the Broncos are in position to leap the Frogs if they win their final three games. TCU has just one game left at woeful New Mexico after Thanksgiving, a game that will do little to improve their BCS standing.
If Boise passes the Frogs, TCU would still be in contention for a BCS game, but could also be left out all together.
So, Patterson will join just about every show the ESPN family of channels has on the air.
His day will start at 8:45 a.m. in Bristol with the Mike and Mike Show, which can be heard locally on ESPN Radio 103.3 FM, and seen on ESPN2. Then Patterson will make radio stops on the Colin Cowherd Show (airs noon-2 p.m. locally), the Scott Van Pelt Show and the Doug Gottlieb Show.
He'll also make TV appearances on First Take, SportsNation, College Football Live and SportsCenter.
Patterson's day will conclude at 5:30 p.m., and it just might prove to be more tiresome than a game-week work day.
