Savage Status Update Sums Up Reaction To Kingsbury Hiring
I personally think that things are always going to be a bit tough for Tech. I just think Lubbock is a hard place to recruit to. You're welcome to think differently, but so far the evidence is on my side.
I know I'm a bad fan, but I'm following Kingsbury's progress to the Cardinals. He was a good dude who I feel was placed in a really bad position with a team that ate up with injuries and some tough circumstances. I think he can get the Cardinals to at least .500 in the short team and make them a fun team to watch, which will, in turn, put butts in the seats.
It's okay if you don't agree with the following sentiment, but I saw it echoed and re-tweeted time after time after time:
This hire is kind of a slap to the face to Tech. "Yeah, we know he didn't win in Lubbock, but NOBODY can win there" (authors name withheld by request)
Haters can keep hatin' on Coach if they want. I was an OLD SKOOL fan of the Cardinals with "Pro Football's Dirtiest Player" Conrad Dobler played for the team. It's going to be easy for me to pick back up with them.
As for Tech, I really hope they do well because they now have two former head coaches that picked up better gigs and this could get embarrassing.
