The video below makes it clear why Texas Christian University is sliding off a moral precipice and plummeting into hell’s fiery clutches. After last week’s drug raid resulted in the arrest of four TCU football players, one has to look at the team’s top leader, Coach Gary Patterson. His affinity for the devil’s music — rock ‘n’ roll — appears to be the root cause of this prestigious institution’s downfall.
Not since the Beatles hit America in 1964 and shattered our society’s moral compass has there been such an egregious display of wanton disregard for this nation’s principles. Patterson might think it’s okay to grow his hair long and play Loggins and Messina songs with reckless abandon, but that lack of self-discipline has obviously filtered down to his players.
Patterson must go. TCU must fire him. He’ll self-destruct anyway (a la Morrison, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, and Whitney Houston), but, by God, don’t let him drag down the entire team and university with him.
Here’s Patterson thumbing his nose at decency during a recent visit with Fort Worth musician JT Hodges.
