Somehow, you knew this was coming.

Anybody out there really believe Tommy Tuberville when he said at the time of his hire at Texas Tech that he was going to leave the Mike Leach offense in place?  Anybody?  Bueller?

“We’ll put a lot of speed on the field,” as well as a more aggressive defense, adding the team’s quarterbacks met with him soon after his arrival and asked Tech to run the ball a bit more to help protect them. “We’re going to be a little more balanced on offense.”

Yeah, that’s it – the quarterbacks made him do it.  Because if there’s one thing that’s totally logical in this crazy world, it’s that quarterbacks recruited to a program with a pass-happy offense are going to go to the coach and ask that he not throw the ball so much.

    Just who’s running the show there?

    A Day in the Life of Tommy Fills His Staff:

    “One spot he said he’s not yet filled is team chaplain. The chaplain will not be pushing a religion, but teaching attitude and character, Tuberville said.”

    But onto more important things: Tommy knows you’ve got to run the ball to be sucessful in the Big 12. And with regard to implementing that ground attack, Tommy, always known for listening (he doesn’t wear earrings because they might deflect or distort the sound waves going into his LBJ-like receptors), spoke with a Pentecostal fundamentalist who does not push religion.

    Tommy was then advised by HR to open up the team chaplain position to all priests, prophets, mullahs and Branch Davidians in the Greater Lubbock metropolitan area.

    Tommy runs that idea by all his pass-happy Texas Tech QB’s who say that just like taking the ball out of their hands for three yards and a cloud of FieldTurf particles, they are cool with it because they now know that they are going to need all the protection they can get.

    How much longer before a certain former line coach leaves his job as a trucker to move the dusty plains of Texas?


  4. War Eagle, that is exactly the move I’ve been waiting to hear about.

    Not that I’m a big Tuberville fan but I’ll bet Texas Tech is better and wins more games in the long run because of Tuberville’s moves. Watch out Texas and OU.
