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

    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.
