I’m just so frustrated at what’s happening with the basketball program and our head basketball coach right now. Yes, some might say these are just allegations from disgruntle former players and employees of the Tech men’s basketball program. Some might say that these are players whining about being coached too hard after being a team that only won a single conference game last season. Some are saying let an investigation take place and see what comes out of it, who knew and who didn’t that mistreatment of the players were taking place. Some are waiting to see what the NCAA is going to do on the allegations of running practices longer per week then what is allowed by the rules. Others want to blame our AD for hiring the men’s basketball coach in the first place, and are waiting for him to take responsibility for the actions of another person.
To me it is real simple that there is only one person to blame Billy Gillispie.
Come on; let’s be realistic, with all the crap in his past who really thinks he will be the head men’s basketball coach of Texas Tech to open this upcoming season up? All of us knew that if he screwed up just a little bit behavior-wise he would and should be fired. All eyes were on him to keep his nose clean and run a legitimate upstanding program, and he knew this too. I know I’m amazed that alleged issues like this could happen to our program when the coach himself knew what was on the line, it was not just his job but to his career in college basketball. This is the root cause for my frustration, we gave a second chance to a person and they took advantage of us. Even if only one thing he did of the allegations are true, he took advantage of us. Can anybody tell me that out of all these allegations they think all of them are completely false? Because I think even if they are completely false, given the coach’s past, who would believe it?
Which makes me ask the question one more time… no matter what the outcome of the investigations are, who really thinks Billy Gillispie will be the head men’s basketball coach of Texas Tech to open this upcoming season? I’d really like to know.
