The culture of Texas Tech will undergo a slow decay under the reign of Tommy Tuberville. This is as inevitable as continental drift. But maybe -- just maybe -- Lubbock is affecting him a little bit, too. Because this, an ostensibly officially-sanctioned headshot, is the face of a man who might give himself a nickname from "Top Gun."

The Air Raid is no more. But Tubbs' impenetrable smug cocoon, longtime fans will be happy to see, remains smooth and intact.
