Chip Brown of earned some notoriety this summer when he seemed to be ahead of everybody else regarding the breakup of the Big 12 that ended up with Nebraska leaving for the Big Ten and Colorado joining the Pac-10, but he currently finds himself in a bit of hot water with TCU head coach Gary Patterson.   On Thursday afternoon Brown went to his Twitter account to ask his followers from Texas A&M a question.

Patterson was informed of the tweet following practice on Thursday and didn't take kindly to it, telling the Dallas Morning News that the tweet was inaccurate and that Brown was a liar.

I asked Patterson about this "fact" and his response was, "That's a lie. Nobody at Texas A&M ever contacted me. ... He's a liar. It's just like the Kansas State job." Patterson was referring to a report from a few years ago that had him heading to Kansas State to take that job but, obviously, he's still at TCU.  After hearing Patterson's reaction to his tweet, Brown went back to his Twitter account to defend himself.

Of course, Brown also went on Twitter to say that he never said Texas A&M contacted Patterson about the job, corraborating with Patterson's account, but that had the Aggies contacted Patterson, he'd have taken the gig.  Which seems a bit odd to me.

If you admit that Texas A&M never contacted Patterson then how do you know he'd have taken the job?  Just because you think Patterson would have gone to College Station doesn't make it true, and it definitely doesn't make it a fact.

Chip Brown. Get a real job. Even on Twitter, such as it is, you have no credibility. Must be fun to think you are are real journalist. Blog this. Grown ups have better things to do than respond to every speculation from the new chattering class. Legitimate journalists - do your job. Stop chasing these cell phone wannabees and providing them their 15 minutes.
