Gary Patterson on Baylor Coach and Player: "That's Not What I call Class"

Ryan Glasspiegel

During the third quarter of yesterday’s 41-38 Baylor victory over TCU, Baylor safety Ahmad Dixon was flagged for hitting TCU’s Trevone Boykin helmet-to-helmet on what was about as textbook a violation of the targeting rule as exists:

In his post-game press conference (up-top), Gary Patterson took issue with Dixon’s continuing to be on the sideline after being ejected, and of Baylor coach Art Briles’ confronting Patterson when the TCU coach was initially irate about the play.

“[Dixon] takes a shot, I want him kicked out, [Briles] comes out across the field at me. [Dixon’s] laughing out in front of the cameras on the sidelines, and [Boykin has to sit out for one play]. That’s not what I call class.”

“It wasn’t funny,” Patterson continued. “And to come across the field at me? Nuh uh. I didn’t build this program backing down to anybody, and I’m not going to do it to him … He’s picking on the wrong guy.”
