TCU coach Gary Patterson blasts Les Miles over Jeremy Hill decision

Things could be a bit testy between TCU Horned Frogs coach Gary Patterson and LSU Tigers head coach Les Miles when their respective teams meet at AT&T Stadium on August 31st. Patterson said in an interview with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that he wasn’t impressed with Miles’ decision to reinstate running back Jeremy Hill.

Patterson said he wouldn’t allow something like a team vote to bring back Devonte Fields, a suspended defensive end for the Horned Frogs: “My whole team would vote Devonte to be back on the team because they all want to win. That doesn’t teach life lessons.”

Patterson continued with his criticism, saying that LSU wouldn’t have been so keen on bringing Hill back had the Tigers been scheduled to face an easier opponent: “I’m sure if it was some opponent they’d beat by 100 points [the players] wouldn’t have a vote. It’s not my worry. I’ve got to play whoever they put on the field.”
