    Re: It's Official: Gillispie to Texas Tech

    Good for him. I don't think he'll find what he had at A&M though.

    ESPN was talking about it; their graphic said A&M but they were talking about Tech.

    Yeah, no surprise... slightly worrying, but no surprise.

    Re: It's Official: Gillispie to Texas Tech

    So how long do people think he will be there for? Probably after 2-3 good seasons does anyone think he will move on to a better job?

    Re: It's Official: Gillispie to Texas Tech

    It's reported to be a 5-year deal and, given his history, I would think the buyout would have to be pretty huge. Coupled with his baggage, I wouldn't be surprised to see him there for the entire 5 years even if he does start winning right away.

    No, he is actually going home so to speak. He was born in Abilene, and most folks in that part of Texas are TT fans.

    Re: Billy G Hiring Announcement

    I think it's improvement, but I must be in the minority but I am not scared out of my head of Billy G.

    He's been out of the business for 2-3 years and he has a hell of a lot more baggage then he had the last time he was coaching.

    I'm still up in the air. They could be really good. He's a hell of a recruiter... but he's been out of the game for a while now.

    That's where I'm at, so you're probably in trouble.

    He's a challenge, but he's not the same commodity he was before going to Kentucky.
