Letter to the Editor: Patterson for Coach of the Year


    I’m a TCU alumnus, and I’ve been trying to get the word out for people to vote for Gary Patterson for 2009 Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year. He was No. 23 at the beginning of last week. I started a Facebook group a few days ago called “Vote Patterson – Coach of the Year 2009”, and as of today, Coach P moved up to the No. 17 spot with approximately 3,000 votes. There are about two weeks of the preliminary voting phase left, but ultimately, the winning coach receives $50,000 for the charity of choice, as well as $20,000 for the alumni association. I was wondering if you could mention the Web site or the Facebook group in the newspaper to get students to start voting every day for Coach P.
