SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. — Texas Christian coach Gary Patterson sat atop a large podium Thursday at the front of a massive hotel ballroom at Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl media day, his team interspersed at smaller podiums and tables, all within sight. To his right, not so far away, was rangy freshman defensive end Devonte Fields. All the way on the other side from Patterson, senior linebacker Kenny Cain. And everywhere between and around them, more examples of Patterson’s old program colliding with his new one.
