Texas Tech whacked basketball coach Billy Gillispie, errr, he resigned after a tumultuous 18 months where he reportedly rode his team so hard, 15 players transferred as well numerous staffers. Now, they’re a month from the start of practice, without a head coach and in total disarray. And have no one to blame for it but themselves. They rolled the bones on this guy and they just crapped out. After seeing the way he was run out of Lexington, they knew exactly what they were getting in Gillispie. And if they didn’t, they should have. Either way, this one’s on A.D. Kirby Hocutt: and of course, on Gillispie himself, who was totally out of control. If even half of what’s been reported is true, he’s one of the worst guys ever.
