If true, that'd be totally fricking hilarious.

That's what I thought. Funny, if true and fits him like a glove. But, probably not true.

I wonder who got stuck with the bill that all the reruits thought Tubbs was paying?

According to the recruits... he did.

About what you would expect.

There's no reason for them to lie about it either. What a POS.

Hopefully the kids doubled up on the order then. Might as well 2 slabs of prime rib (or ribeye) if the guy is going to walk out.

Dine and dash. F'n hilarious. Stay classy, Tubs!

One recruit said that were at the table, and he thought TT went to the restroom. He never returned and left them there.

Perhaps it is best that these recruits see just how slimy the world of college football is while they are still in high school.

The pass game,, their passing game was exciting,, the QB delivered the ball well before the receiver made his cut and broke open, ya know. That was some fun stuff.

The Big-12 needs spice, too bland as of now.
