08:14 AM ET 07.26 | Tommy Tuberville may be new to the league, but he's not new to the game. "I'm glad we're at least holding together because I came into this league, I like all the coaches and there are some great programs. I just hate we lost two teams. But, it'll work out for the best. You know, there's been a lot of negotiations about scheduling. I think it's going to be good; I just hate that we lose a championship game. Some people say, 'Well, you've got a better chance in making the national championship game.' I'm not sure of that. I think a lot of people hold that against you when you don't play that extra game in terms of voting."

Need clarification - is this a Tech or an A&M thread? Do I post Aggie jokes or comments about how disgusting a place Lubbock is?

Pretty sure you could make fun of both to cover all your bases.

Dang, I'm more confused than normal.

this is the second time on the truth and rumors college page that tuberville has been associated with a&m and not tech. they need to get their stories straight. once is just a mistake, twice is incompetence

I'm starting to feel bad for Tech. Everyone busts on Lubbock pretty hard. At least the geeks from Revenge of the Nerds get the girls in the end.

"I just wanted to say that I'm a nerd, and I'm here tonight to stand up for the rights of other nerds. I mean uh, all our lives we've been laughed at and made to feel inferior. And tonight, those bas tards, they trashed our house. Why? Cause we're smart? Cause we look different? Well, we're not. I'm a nerd, and uh, I'm pretty proud of it.

Crap, two days in a row that I have to go do work instead of play on T&R. It sucks having staff out on vacation.Anyway, A&M is a reasonably good academic institution populated by students who.............. march to the beat of a somewhat different drummer. Think of the movie Revenge of the Nerds. Now imagine guys so geeky that the nerds would not associate with them. Now multiply that level of weirdness by 10. You're getting close to Aggies.Tech kids are pretty normal. Academically............................ Tech is, uh, not an AAU school. They insist that multiplication flash cards are not used in upper level math courses, only in freshman and sophomore level classes. I'm unconvinced. As to the beauty of Lubbock, imagine that Satan has hired you to design a new level of Hell, suitable for bin Laden and his buddies. You're gonna want to start by visiting Lubbock with a camera, and you'll want to find some way to duplicate the smell and texture of a stockyard combined with a dust storm.

Hater - the smell from Sutter's feedyards in the summertime can be very romantic...


at least for the visiting Aggies

Lubbock ain't bad...... you're either part of the religious groups or you're not.... and if you're not there are some decent places to eat bbq, listen to live music and pound down a few cold Pearls....


but you do have to get past all the Methodists and Baptists that are there on Saturday nights...

not to rip off Avis...but as a Tech alum, as #3 (or #4), we try harder...

I believe this is the second time the T&A interns have made this exact Tuberville/A&M mistake.
Granted, it's an easy mistake to make-- who actually can keep up with the names on the new coaching staffs of the Big-12 also-rans?
It's not like Al Gore invented some fabulous resource that can be used for fact-checking in cases like this.

Should I say "Quint" or should I say "where the heck did everyone go"?
