    Re: Tubby to Tech?

    Figured he would retire. Not a bad hire for Tech but they could do better


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Re: Tubby to Tech?

    I think this would be a good hire for tech. Even if he only brings Tech to mediocrity that would be a hell of a lot better than where they are now.

    If they can land Tubby that would be a great hire. I don't want to see it though.

    Re: Tubby to Tech?

    This could be good TT and the conference but Tubby has an uphill battle to get that program back to respectability.

    I mean, has he ever been to Lubbock before?

    TT has some talent. A good coach could have .500 next year imo

    Re: Tubby to Tech?

    Tubby is a solid coach, but he's kind of working his way back down the ladder. I think he would be a tremendous hire for a mid major, but I just don't see him resurrecting a high major that's mired at the bottom of their conference.

    A lot of coaches go there to retire. Bobby Knight, Pat Knight, Billy G, to name a few.

    I was going to post pretty much the same thing. Texas Tech - where fired big ten coaches go to fade away into the night.


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.
