Yes Virginia it's true. Texas Tech is no different than ut or a&m . We now know that Tech is run/controlled by people who have virtually unlimited financial resources along with egos and control issues that exceed their financial resources. I know Virginia, just like me, you have ALWAYS KNOWN in your heart that Tech was different from the others. Oh sure, there will always be someone making a political play or pursuing a personal agenda, but this is Texas Tech. We don't stoop or bow to those kind of pressures. We have ALWAYS been guided and lead by not only very intelligent people, but most importantly ones who ALWAYS and ONLY had the well-being of Tech in the forefront. They were able to set aside egos and control issues. Nothing else mattered to them or us. Now sadly, we learn that we were so completely wrong, mislead, or we've had our prideful love-for-Tech heads stuck in the sand. Whatever the the case Virginia, the Tech that we have absolutely loved and cherished for many years has changed in the past 3 days more than we can or want to comprehend.Our feelings that Tech was above the others, that we were being lead by people who loved Tech above the outside controlling forces has been dashed to smithereens. We're now lead by tools; we really don't have a clue as to who is actually in control. Maybe it's because there really isn't anyone in control, we're being led by whatever tool is swinging the largest hammer on any given day.
I'm sorry Virginia; the tools have taken away something that was PRECIOUS to us. They have taken the special love and pride that we've always held in our heart for Tech. They've taken the special feeling of fairness, caring, and decency that we knew separated us from the others. It's gone forever Virginia.
