“It’s only Week 4 of the college football season, and tension between coaches is already beginning to flare. First, Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury and Arkansas coach Bret Bielema got into a dust-up about the merits of the spread offense in the wake of the Red Raiders‘ 35-24 win Saturday.
It must be a Texas thing, because TCU coach Gary Patterson was next up. Senior defensive end Mike Tuaua was arrested Monday on a felony robbery charge, along with teammate Andre Petties-Wilson, and Patterson has suspended the pair. But in defending Tuaua in a Tuesday news conference, Patterson took a clear shot at rival Baylor and its own disciplinary issues.
“It’s not even close to what happened south of here,” Patterson said.”
The comment comes after Baylor fumbled the situation with former DE Sam Ukwuachu and his sexual assault case prior to the season beginning.
This season has been full of coaches and players taking shots at each other from the microphone and there’s still so much more to go.
