Honestly everyone, Tech sucks. Their glory days of Mike Leach parading around Lubbock punishing rum and giving creepy pirate rape grunts to every coed that crossed his path are gone. They will no longer be jamming cocky, spoiled brat daddy's boys in sheds to treat concussions. The only winner to ever graze the dusty plains of Lubbock is long gone, and they ran him out to bring in an out of his prime former SEC coach in Tuberville (who was run out of Auburn so they could, um, win a national championship). The sex appeal of Tech has died off and they will now go back to the era of mediocrity similar to the years led by Spike Dykes, who somehow became a legend in Lubbock, but I think that's just because he was the only person dumb enough to willingly grow old as shit in Lubbock. Yeah, it sucks that Tech bailed AGAIN. They basically shoved a fist right up our schedule's ass. But I'm going to take a different approach and tell you why this could actually be a good thing for TCU.
For starters, like I mentioned earlier: They SUCK now. Sure, the people who oppose what I am saying will say they went 8-4 this year, they won a bowl game, Tuberville is going to have them playing defense, etc, etc, etc. I respond with this: you lost to Texas. Anyone who lost to Texas last year SUCKS (even you, Nebraska). You gave up 52 points to Iowa State. Your defense is nowhere near fixed and never will be. You squeaked by the likes of SMU, Baylor, Missouri, and Colorado. In fact, the most impressive wins on your schedule are Baylor and Missouri. Good for you. Yes, you beat Northwestern by a touchdown in your bowl game- a Northwestern team that was playing without their starting QB and STILL scored 38 points against you. I think 38 points might be more than every other Big 10 team's combined totals for New Years Day. Congrats. Nice Ticket City Bowl win...in front of about 15,000 people IN DALLAS. So losing Tech from the schedule really isn't that big of a blow. They are in the lower tier of the Big 12 South, and now they are just in the lower tier of the Big 12-2=10. I know beating them is a blast, but do we really need 2 Baylors to humiliate??? No, we'll be fine without you. A Lousiana directional school might be a more stellar competitor anyways.
Also, I don't really want their fans coming in to town, complete with barbed wire tats, black wife-beater tank tops, and Pauly-D hairdos, and spreading their Raider Rash around our beautiful city. Honestly, as much as we rip UT for being full of themselves and their unwarranted elitist attitudes, is there a worse fan base than Tech fans? I say no. I haven't spent much time in Lubbock, but I bet the majority of vehicles there are shitty crew cab pick ups, lifted on huge tires, with flowmasters and roll bars, that are caked in dirt from some hard core offroading. Basically what I'm getting at is that Tech students are nothing but older high school students, and their education and intelligence reflect that. They're loud, obnoxious, ignorant, and seemingly have no knowledge of the game of football whatsoever. Their main concern is to tell you that you suck, that they are better than you, and then after they get their shit packed in by your superior team they just try to fight you to justify themselves and they usually lose that as well. And yes, I'm fully aware that I am completely stereotyping the Tech student, and I know they have a large frat contingency as well, but those guys suck too, just in a different way. Although they don't look the same as the aforementioned meat heads who jersey shore out the campus, their actions are usually about the same, but their rage is usually fueled by cocaine and whiskey, not steroids and herpes itch. So what I'm getting at here is that it's not such a bad thing that this god awful sect of society is no longer coming to Fort Worth. I've made a point of not being around any of those people, and I'd like to keep it that way (although I have a brother who went to Tech, but even he hates Tech). We don't want their students and young alumni flooding the Aardvark, Capital Bar, 7th street, or wherever else we might frequent, because it will inevitably result in some moron running his ignorant Tech mouth while dip spit runs down his chin about how much better Tech is and how TCU plays nobody and would get stomped in the Big 12, and this would also be likely to happen on Saturday after they lost as well. They are that dumb. And to prove that they are dumb, here's a quote from the comments section of the ESPN Dallas article...
"TCU has had ONE good season, last year WITH DALTON. And I know they were ranked in 2009 high but they weren't that good that year. Now Daltons gone, TCU is mediocre at best. I could care less if we play these tiny schools, there not the big boys. And TCU w/o Dalton is nothing."
Thanks for that, ryanrttu. I could sit there and point out all the grammatical and just basic English flaws of that post, but why bother? The quote itself just proves the kind of idiots we are dealing with. Texas Tech is the essence of mediocrity, both on the field and in their fan base, so I'd rather find another team to schedule.
Tech is SCARED. It's pretty obvious (and flattering). So last year they duck us because we bring in a senior laden squad fresh off BCS experience and loaded with talent. This year we lose our QB, leading receivers, 4 linemen, and just about half of our defense...AND THEY'RE STILL SCARED! If there is a time to play us, it would seemingly be now. If it's true that Tech is open to playing us in the future, I would bet it's because they are waiting for us to come down a bit. I've got bad news for Tech- we will NEVER be down on your level again. We are light years ahead of you as a program and an institution of higher learning. You people are the laughing stock of universities nationwide, and your football program is as run of the mill as it gets, so I wouldn't hold your breath for the day that TCU and Tech are near equals again. That ship has sailed, right along with Mike Leach, your pirate loving savior that your inadequate athletic department ran out of town.
I have no idea what the schedule will look like next year, and since Tech showed their vagina and ran away, I'm assuming that it could be quite difficult to piece together a decent looking non-conference schedule for the fall. Hopefully we swing a deal a la the Clemson game or Oregon State game, and I imagine we'll be able to find at least 1 BCS school with a pair of nuts to play us, but I hope we can fill the entire schedule to look at decent. I have all the faith in GP and CDC to get this done, and I'm sure they'll pull another rabbit out of their hat. It just pisses me off that a Big 12 school this close to Fort Worth could be so cowardly and tuck their tail between their legs for a second straight year. But like I said earlier, it could be worse. It's not a like a REAL team dropped us from the schedule. It's just Tech.
