Tommy Tuberville is lucky this happened in Lubbock, and in a game where no uninvested viewer was watching. Shall we tapdance through a slightly complicated argument here? That Tuberville was clearly a dick to do this, because you shouldn't and can't go around yanking the headgear off your employees in any job, particular as a college football coach or underwater salvage operator? And that he should also not be fired, since we a.) do tend to be a bit quick on the firing trigger, and b.) REMEMBER WHEN MIKE LOCKSLEY TOTALLY PUNCHED AN ASSISTANT AND KEPT HIS JOB?
Not that you should use New Mexico as your guide on anything football-related, but still: let's fire people for good reasons, not this admittedly stupid thing you caught on camera. (Note: will not be an issue when Tuberville runs the hell out of Lubbock at the first chance he gets.*
P.S. If they didn't fire Bobby Knight or Billy Gillispie, seriously, Texas Tech ain't doing SHIT about this.
