SPORTSbyBROOKS: All Judges were Tech Grads

So, it turns out that all four judges held at least one degree from Tech, including three that held their undergrad from Tech. Brooks alleges there may be some conflict of interest between some of the judges and the university. I'm not ready to say the legal outcome was jeopardized based simply on the fact they are Tech grads and/or their name can be connected to Hance or whomever. In this part of the state, there aren't too many degrees of separation between individuals at these higher levels (e.g., judges, chancellors, etc.). I personally know at least a half dozen people with Hance's number in their phone, and I'm certainly not an elected official, "connected", or getting my name on endowed chairs. My point is that it's not too hard to connect names in West Texas and on the South Plains, but connecting names is merely a trivial exercise that proves nothing.
