RECOUNT NOT REMATCH! I'm starting this here. Fans do NOT want a rematch of LSU and Alabama. OCCUPY THE INTERNET and demand a recount! For years the BCS has kept teams out of the big games like Boise and others that play "little sisters of the poor". Well, now we have an Alabama team in the game with a schedule that is clearly inferior to Ok State. What gives?

Kent Hance = bringing down toxic rain on Texas Tech. The abysmal state of the football program is simply the tip of the iceberg, and ever since his collaboration with Craig James, Spaeth, and Jim Sowell the publicity he has generated for Tech has been nothing short of ... 'toxic". Being worried about football at Tech right now is like being concerned about paint on the Titanic. We could fire the entire coaching staff, but we would just be diverting attention from the real problem. Kent Hance is destroying the integrity of Texas Tech University.

Was Tubs our Canary in the Coal Mine?

2

Great read from Gil over at the Star, and hat tip to Tubs for an outspoken moment back in 2010. Gotta agree also with this sentiment from Gil... Whither the Big 12? To me, Beebe's primary motivation has always been to save his job and the jobs of the toadies he's surrounded himself with, so he likely will try to convince the remaining members to carry on with a nine-team league.

Homage to tradition

4

Gotta love the coaches the really understand the tradition of the game, and who pay homage to those innovators that came before. Much as I think Buddy Ryan was a complete douch, I'm starting to like his kids. Rob Ryan lines the Dallas D up on the first play yesterday in Landrys "Flex" formation, as a tribute to one of the truly forward thinking coaches of all time. Much like Leach lining the OU offense up in the wishbone his first play to honor that great tradition, it's a class act and a true celebration of what is best about the game. For those of us old enough to remember what Coach Landry did for the game, the nostalgia of that moment was rich. For those of us that had the privilege of watching a Leach offense fire on all cylinders, I wonder how long it will be before we can pay tribute to that innovative thing of beauty, and the Coach that brought it to Lubbock.

Bob Knight fitting right in with ESPN and the likes of Craig James

Nice to have the Bob Knight era (error) done in Lubbock. As for ESPN and their nefarious lineup of Knight, Craig James, Ron Franklin, Norby Williamson, and the management that lets these clowns out of their cage and on the air... you are bad for sports and terrible for society. Knight outright lies about students at KU, on air, and gets away with an apology.

Be by a TV on Wednesday, HBO to expose Tubs assistant at Auburn,

37

In a segment hosted by Andrea Kremer, where allegations by four former Auburn football players that included an Auburn assistant coach paying former starting Auburn offensive lineman Troy Reddick nearly $5,000 over two seasons to former Auburn starter and ex-NFL player Stanley McClover being paid $4,000 for a single-game performance against Alabama. Choice quote from McClover on morality and Auburn Football... "It really turned me into a monster. When there’s no morals to what you’re doing, you’re just into getting money, I spent it cause I felt like I could get it right back. ‘(Speaking in third person) I don’t want to get a education, I don’t want to go to study hall, I want to get this money.’ It’s all about money. … The decision that I made, is hurting me right now. Now I’ve got to try to find a career, now I’ve got to try to find a way to educate myself so I can talk to people. I’m not proud of what I did and I’ve destroyed my life."

Podcast of Marlon Williams interview from Austin station

2

Some questions they threw out for Marlon... We asked him what he is doing right now to prepare for the NFL… We asked him to further detail what he is doing to increase his speed & size. We talked about his Pro Day and his numbers for his 40 yd dash, Bench Press, Broad Jump and how his numbers stack up against those that were in the Combine. We talked about his background being a running back and how that helps him as a Linebacker and also talked about how versatile of an athlete he is, how he can play multiple positions and has a lot of experience even on special teams. Marlon shared how intense the Pro Day is and what goes on at Pro Day. We talked about how smart he is being that he majored in Engineering We asked him which player or players he compares himself to. We also asked him which player was the best player he saw in College Football. His answer may surprise you. We asked him what it was like to play for Mike Leach. We asked him which NFL team, if any did he follow growing up We also asked him about his willingness to go to the UFL or Arena in case the NFL doesn’t call (even though he’s a 4th or 5th round projection) We also asked him how he plans to avoid the same pitfalls of being in the wrong place at the wrong time such as Ben Roethlisberger.
