Since his 2000 hiring, Gary Patterson has transformed the Horned Frogs from Division I doormat into a regular top 10 team. Under Patterson, TCU has won at least 11 games in seven out of the last nine seasons. That consistency has racked up five conference championships and an impressive seven bowl wins. Patterson was also named the A.P. Coach of the Year in 2009, and has overseen the development of some legendary players. Most importantly, TCU’s 2012 jump to the Big 12 will finally provide Patterson’s squad with the strength of schedule of a legitimate national contender.
Wes Welker's playing time (or lack thereof) has been, without question, the strangest story of the 2012 season. After catching a ridiculous 122 passes in 2011, Welker has seen his usage rate drop substantially in favor of the Julian Edelman. This trend has given rise to every manner of rumor and conspiracy theory, most notably the strange idea that the Patriots are somehow punishing Welker for complaining about his contract situation during the off-season.
Will they go down in history as heroes, or choke when it matters most? Many of the most rewarding moments in professional sports are borne from last-second heroics. These accomplishments also tend to lead to some pretty entertaining celebrations. Take a step into the time machine and relive these incredible game winners:
Andy Murray overcame tricky winds and 76 years of history to defeat Novak Djokovic, 7-6 (10), 7-5, 2-6, 3-6, 6-2, in the longest men’s finals in the history of the US Open. It also marked Great Britain’s first men’s Grand Slam title since 1936.
