at this point anyone that cannot figure out that holgerson fucking sucks is an idiot

he was about to be fired from WVU, he drove UH into the toilet, tried some "save it for next year" bullshit and then watched the QB that was centered around leave anyway (like kliff the QB whisperer....uh yea whisper for them to LEAVE), he is recruiting like shit at UH just like he did at WVU, NB is out recruiting him at WVU even though coogfans (idiots) claimed that WVU was the reason holgar could not recruit there and holgar would "kill it" in Houston

NB went 5-7 his first year, but he was left with jack shit at QB and a bunch of other players with shitty attitudes and "don't give a fuck" just like their last coach

at this point if you don't look at the recruiting difference between WVU with NB vs UH with holgar and you don't compare the performance of the coaches in their first year relative to the competition they played and the teams they were left with and conclude that holgar is a total chode then you are a fucking idiot

it is, but the discussion just above is about a clown that made some good money in oil and now thinks he should control the Tech athletics department and have Tech make stupid hires like holgar that will run the program further into the ground

Texas Tech lands graduate transfer from Alabama Chadarius Townsend to backfield

Jun 19, 2020

Associated Press

LUBBOCK, Texas -- Texas Tech is adding Alabama graduate transfer Chadarius Townsend, who was used sparingly at running back by the Crimson Tide and has two years of eligibility remaining.

Townsend was a standout high school quarterback in Alabama before joining the Crimson Tide in 2017. After a redshirt season, he split time at running back and receiver while also playing special teams for two years. He had eight carries for 22 yards last season.

Coach Matt Wells has now added a grad transfer at running back in each of his two offseasons with the Red Raiders. Armand Shyne came over from Utah last year and finished second on the team with 374 yards rushing.

SaRodorick Thompson led Texas Tech with 765 yards and 12 touchdowns on the ground as a redshirt freshman last year. He was the eighth player to lead the Red Raiders in rushing as a freshman. Another freshman, Ta'Zhawn Henry, was third behind Shyne.

Townsend, who got his degree in human environmental science in three years, is the fourth graduate transfer to join Texas Tech this offseason. The others are linebacker Brandon Bouyer-Randle (Michigan State), offensive lineman Josh Burger (Wofford) and linebacker Jacob Morgenstern (Duke).

What is with Tech and these running backs without biblical names? #noracist

 

For the offended: It is a reference to SEC Guy

Your average kind of forgettable Tech season. But a more boring sort, with a better defense and no insane offense.

If the University of Oklahoma isn't the choice in at least 45 states, I have to question the accuracy of this information

Bob Knight did pretty well at Tech.

You're right.  I was conflating the end of the TTU careers of Bobby Knight, Pat Knight, and the Pirate.  While the latter two were fired, Bobby left on his own terms, albeit abruptly, with no notice, in the middle of the season, so that he could hand the reins to Pat, who was fired 3 years later.

Yeah, that was bad, no doubt, but before that he won a lot of games  (by the standards of pre-Chris Beard TTU basketball), and there were little to no allegations of player abuse, which you seemed to be implying.

She sounds like a modern, female Bobby Knight.  And we know how that turned out up in Lubbock.

evidently you don't if you're making some sort of comparison here.

Was this in the area of 19th and maybe Memphis near the Methodist / Covenant Hospital and was it later called Clicks?

And she's done.
 

 

After reading the USA Today story and reading a lot of people saying on social media and on the 247 Tech board that all this stuff is almost certainly true and that Stollings and her main assistant had a reputation for this stuff, I don't see how they could have not fired her.  I'm a Kirby Hocutt fan, but this is big black mark for his record.

kirby ain't gettin fired over women's basketball.

Maybe football causes issues, but not women's hoops with the results of the men's hoops, baseball, and track programs added in.

Tech couldn't be that stupid again, could they?

And your point is what?   Oh you have none...   Aggy as fuck with that old ass shit.

 

women’s hoops program has been in the shitter for years. It means not a gotdam thing in the big picture with regard to Kirby Hocutt.

That Lady Raiders national title was a looong time ago now (sad to say, as I was a freshman at Tech that year), and they've been bad for a while.  They used to pull some big crowds by women's basketball standards, but that also ended long back.  I mean, most college kids today aren't old enough to remember when we were a power in that sport.

Bring Steve Gomez from LCU. Natl Titles.

I grew up in church with the guy, solid man. Hell it worked for Larry Hays. 

 

 

Kirby has gotten lucky with two safe hires. Beard and Tad.

I'm not angry at all.  Your point was stupid yesterday.  It still is today.

That being said, Kiby's job is anything but safe in today's world, especially at Texas Tech, where he might have pissed someone off by not sharing a hotdog with them at the snack shack at Lake Ridge.
