Gary Patterson is another coach that might look good in burnt orange. Photo: Brendan Maloney-US PRESSWIRE Fool me once, shame on you.  Fool me twice, shame on me…. Or as Great White said “Once bitten twice shy.” With a record of 8-2 and the TCU game looming the Texas coaching staff, players and fans had to feel fairly comfortable with where the team was after 10 games.  The Horns had apparently jumped the wheels back on the track after the close loss to West Virginia and the subsequent blowout loss to Oklahoma.  Likewise it looked like they had turned the corner at the quarterback position with David Ash living up to expectations.  A Cotton Bowl berth was likely and a trip to a BCS Bowl was well within reach – all Texas had to do was take care of business against an inferior TCU team on Thanksgiving night.
