The final pre-game press conference with TCU head coach Gary Patterson and Wisconsin head coach Bret Bielema took place today in Los Angeles. This is the first of two parts featuring select quotes from Gary Patterson. Questions were posed by a variety of sportswriters in attendance.
On his impressions of Wisconsin’s heralded offensive line:
“They’re big. They’ve scored a lot of points and they’re very physical. But since we started ten years ago or 13 years ago at TCU, everyone’s been bigger and faster. So, we’ve been doing this a long time. We’re 15-3 against BCS opponents. I think we’re the last team to beat Oklahoma in Norman. So this won’t be our first rodeo. More >

You talked a little about your own personal experience in losing the Rose Bowl that you came out here for. For this team and how it will define the season, what is the difference between winning and losing the Rose Bowl game?
“Well, it’s a lot of memories that come with this week, but those memories will never be the same if it doesn’t have a win behind it. Coach Alvarez set the standard for the University of Wisconsin coming out here three times, winning three times in the same decade has never been done before in our conference.
So for him to do that, when I took over the job, I knew that record and what it all meant. More >
The third-ranked Texas Christian University Horned Frogs concluded a perfect 2010 season by outlasting the fourth-ranked Wisconsin Badgers in the 97th Rose Bowl Game, 21-19.
Wisconsin had an opportunity to tie the score with 2 minutes remaining in the game, but a Scott Tolzien two-point conversion pass attempt was knocked down at the line of scrimmage by Frog linebacker Tank Carder. More >
Most of the match-ups this week are pretty clearcut. I’m going out on a limb and picking Maryland at home over a demoralized Miami squad. I’m also breaking from the crowd and picking Army to upset Northern Illinois in DeKalb. If Dan Persa was healthy enough to play at full speed – he is doubtful this week – I would pick Northwestern over Boston College and their thin secondary without any hesitation. As it is, I am doubting my decision to call for a Wildcat win.
