Gary Patterson has been ribbing Jamie Dixon about his preseason ranking

Gary Patterson has been cracking some jokes to Jamie Dixon about TCU basketball’s preseason ranking, according to Dixon at Big 12 Basketball Media Days.

“There have been a few jokes thrown around about that throughout the summer, I guess,” said Dixon. “Gary was giving me a hard time at some points, but I guess he’s getting the last laugh right now. They’re fourth in the country and we’re proud of what they’re doing.”

TCU’s basketball team was picked third in the Big 12 preseason rankings.

The TCU football team is currently ranked 4th in the nation in the AP Poll, and if they win out, will almost certainly be rewarded with a spot in the College Football Playoffs. The TCU basketball team returns a strong group of upperclassmen, and Dixon’s leadership kept them in some tough games down the stretch.
