Oh, those clever Texas Tech fans. If they aren't tossing tortillas onto the field for reasons unexplained, they're sending prank faxes to former football coaches.
You probably remember the story of how Tommy Tuberville is alleged to have left Texas Tech for Cincinnati. The story goes that he was at dinner with a Texas Tech recruit in Lubbock, Texas, when he abruptly got up, left, and took the job at Cincinnati.
That's what the recruit said. Tuberville said that wasn't what happened, but that hardly matters anymore. The point is, Texas Tech fans believe that's what happened. So on Wednesday National Signing Day in college football they knew Tuberville would be anticipating a whole bunch of faxes from high school football players across the nation.
And according to Texas Tech's SB Nation site, Viva the Matadors, they faxed him copies of the menu for the 50 Yard Line Steakhouse, the restaurant in question. It came with a note:
From: Texas Tech Nation
To: Tommy Tuberville and staff.
MEMO Was thinking of you. . . We will miss you . . . Here is an intent letter to remember us by
Signed XoXXOOxxoo WreckEmTech
Whether any of this actually reached Tuberville or even the Cincinnati football office is anyone's guess.

Tommy Tuberville left Texas Tech to take the job at Cincinnatti back in December, and he left amid some serious scrutiny. As we reported then, recruits and other suggested that Tuberville left and took the job in the middle of dinner.
Tuberville of course denied that it happened that way, and states he was offered the job the following day. Either way, the damage was done.
