There is something wonderfully ironic about this.
Around this time in 2009, Texas Tech wide receiver Adam James was about to wrap a productive season with the Red Raiders that would see him grab a career-high 17 catches for 154 yards and a touchdown.
But for the 2010 season, James was moved to tight end and has so far managed only two catches for 26 yards and no touchdowns with just the team’s Ticket City bowl game against Northwestern on New Year’s Day remaining.
Maybe Tuberville believed the best chance for protecting Master James’ fragile health was to limit his exposure to on-the-field contact. No word yet on Craig James’ reaction to his thoughtfulness.
