11:02 AM ET 12.01 | Maybe it was just the frustration of another three-point defeat that sent TCU coach Gary Patterson over the postgame edge Saturday. Or maybe it was just Patterson at his passionate best -- or, some might say, his worst -- after the Horned Frogs dropped a bitter 41-38 decision to Art Briles and the No. 9-ranked Baylor Bears. "The bottom line," Patterson said, "is he's picking on the wrong guy." It was one of a steamy series of Patterson-issued "bottom lines" Saturday. His voice shook with anger, even though Patterson claimed he wasn't mad. He professed, more than once, that he had "respect for him" and "respect for his program," even as he questioned the Bears' class. At the root of it, Patterson tried to explain, was Baylor senior safety Ahmad Dixon's targeting penalty on Frogs receiver Trevone Boykin and what Briles did or didn't do in the wake of it. "Here's the bottom line to it," Patterson said, "No. 6 [Dixon] beats a guy up at the beginning of the season and he didn't get suspended. He takes a shot today, and I want him kicked out. And the head coach comes across the field at me." Patterson contended that while officials were discussing the penalty, Briles came onto the field and yelled something at him.

Seems like Patterson is whining about something different every few weeks. Since I did not see the game I can't comment (guess I just did) but how did this look to those who watched the game?

Total cheap shot and GPs issue was the other coach allowed the player to stay on the sideline, in the sideline huddles etc even though he'd been kicked out of the game...combined with several other issues with the same player he just felt like Briles was letting the inmate run the asylum. A bit petty but he makes a good point.

If your kicked out that the refs duty to see them leave and not come back. So its not really the coaches fault. But I agree, its petty but a good point.

Actually, we didn't lose to a better team yesterday. The Frogs shot themselves in the foot with 2 interceptions returned for scores and a fumble on the 1 yard line resulting in a 3rd touchdown. Admittedly those mistakes caused the loss but otherwise TCU outplayed Baylor and game wise played perhaps their best game this season overall.

Not trying to say that TCU is better than Baylor this year, but yesterday they were.

He's just mad because his team got to high to play. Damned demon weed!

Hey FrogFan, creating turnovers is part of the game. You lost to a better team. Check the record and ranking. Enjoy the moral victory if you want. Actually, you have the entire bowl season to convince yourself you played better except for 4 turnovers. A typical TCU fan. It's going to be different now that you're playing real Division I opponents "every" week.

Briles yelled something at Patterson? Oh my! Could this be considered bullying?

If that was the case, you'd have won the game, period. Moral victories are for LOSERS! You lost. Build a bridge...and GET OVER IT!

Bullying? Time to start a Congressional investigation.

Patterson has a habit of pointing out how others coach differently than he does. People that throw around the word "class" usually lack it themselves. The man should only coach his team and shut up!

Methinks his frustration boiled over - he needs to keep his cool a little better than that.
