FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) TCU coach Gary Patterson said assistant Jerry Kill sustained a concussion when he got knocked down during a postgame scuffle after a home loss to SMU over the weekend and accused his opponent of plotting a provacative flag planting at midfield.
Patterson insisted Tuesday that Kill would not have been knocked down had Mustangs players not been trying to plant their school flag.
"He got hit twice ... I cannot substantiate that it was a SMU or TCU person, but it did happen. If we wouldn't have had the flags, it wouldn't have happened," Patterson said during his weekly news conference.
