Texas Tech players say they aren't worried that a tumultuous month which began with Tommy Tuberville leaving abruptly for Cincinnati will hurt them in Friday's Meineke Car Care Bowl against Minnesota. Senior quarterback Seth Doege (DAY'-ghee) has been in this situation before. He saw the Red Raiders come together for a win in the Alamo Bowl under an interim coach just days after coach Mike Leach was fired in the 2009 season.
