08:21 AM ET 09.11 | Jordan Tolbert isn't helping make things easy on Texas Tech. [Tolbert] said Monday he doesn't want to play for Billy Gillispie if the coach returns from an extended medical leave. "I don't," Tolbert said by phone. "I don't. Maybe I would for the assistants. I haven't put that much thought into it. There is a big sense of urgency. I don't want to play for him if he comes back." Gillispie is on indefinite sick leave while his bosses investigate allegations that he mistreated his players during practices. Tolbert was one of the returning players who met with Texas Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt two weeks ago after the compliance office queried the players about excessive practice time.

Is this guy left over from Patrick Knight or did he sign on with Gillispie?

Billy Gillespie's a great guy once you get to know him.... But who would want to?
