Among current college head coaches, we doubt there's any more accomplished thespian than Tommy Tuberville, whose IMDB credits include this classic Golden Flake commercial, the olbigatory Blind Side cameo, and any press conference in which he claimed to have spent more than 10 minutes of research before deciding to hire Tony Franklin.*

But whenever future college football historians summarize Tuberville's acting career, the following Texas Tech hype video (which aired in Jones AT&T Stadium ahead of the Red Raiders' 50-10 victory over future WAC member Texas State) is sure to be cited as Tuberville's tour de force. Guns up!
 


*The results of this decision can best be encapuslated by one scoreline: Auburn 3, Mississippi State 2.

That was awesome!

Too bad I'm a Husker fan. And I don't know how a publicity firm could match that with beef or corn.
 
But .. Game on!

Worst opening game performance in years? A 50-10 win? 500+ yards of offense? A shutout after allowing 10 quick points? Is this really about Leach?

VIDEO: Texas Tech goes Old West

Worst opening home game performance by a Texas Tech team since... dare I say it(?)... the God awful days of Jerry Moore!
