The TCU Horned Frogs are one of the top programs in college football. With just weeks to go before the start of the 2015 season, the team took the field for fall training camp. The bad thing about this is that the Horned Frogs play in North Texas and it’s August.
That usually means it’s pretty hot outside.
Scout.com shared a video of TCU head coach Gary Patterson talking about the upcoming season. After a practice in 105 degree heat, you would expect him to be sweating bullets.
You would be absolutely correct in that assumption. While he was talking about defensive coordinator Paul Gonzalez and scout team quarterback Kenny Hill among others, Patterson was barely able to stand. He would bend over to catch his breath every so often.
This isn’t to say that the coach is out of shape. It gets very hot outside in the south during the late summer months and I can understand why Patterson was ready to keel over.
Maybe it’s time for TCU to look into an indoor practice facility. Then again, that wouldn’t get the team acclimated to heat they will have to endure for the first half of the season, so maybe it’s an advantage.
TCU opens the season on September 3 when they play at Minnesota.
