Cold as it might get in Cincinnati, evidently it's preferable to cold shoulder he felt from so many in Lubbock
One of the first times I got together with Tommy Tuberville, for a sitdown interview the week after he was hired, it was a cold, gray January day in Lubbock.
The new Texas Tech coach mentioned in jovial tones how he hated cold weather. His wife would poke fun at him for being all bundled up on the sideline during late-season games.
“So I guess you’ll never coach in the Big Ten, huh?” I told Tuberville.
The moment came back to me Saturday when news broke that Tuberville had taken, if not a Big Ten job, a job in Big Ten country.
