I think someone leaked that he was considered/they were considering dumping wells but I don't think it's official.

The email reads like the work of the real-life version of Jean-Ralphio, and it is as hilarious as it is ridiculous. Some of Spiegelberg's best suggestions:

    Get Kingsbury a nickname. Suggestions include "GQ," "Hollywood," and "Swagger."
    Get Kingsbury a professional stylist, specifically Fred Segal, who has apparently styled "Micheal" Jackson, Brad Pitt, Madonna, Ashley Olson, oscar Willis, The Beatles, Carrie Underwood, and Adam Lambert. "The list goes on," boasts Spiegelberg.
    Get Kingsbury on the "B-list," which will somehow lead to his being invited to the Oscars and Grammys. Also New York Fashion Week

If Art Briles gets hired, it absolutely won't be Kirby Hocutt's decision. I also didn't realize that Briles graduated from there.

I’m admittedly ignorant to how all this works but you are saying that Kirby gets told who he is going to hire?

To some extent every AD has to have their UP sign off on coaching hires. If it's Briles, you would think this would go beyond the normal UP rubber stamp. It also seems like, if you believe the rumors, that this is being donor driven. I don't think there is any way that Hocutt would even fire Wells right now, that before even getting into who he would hire. If you have donors ponying up to pay the buyout and also pay a new staff, he might not have a choice. They seemed perfectly happy and comfortable paying for those attorneys and releasing the "findings" of the Art Briles investigation, so they seem quite serious about this. How much pressure is the university leadership willing to endure?

Didn’t he always wear long sleeves to cover up a Texas Tech tattoo?

I would want him back in this conference so much if he just wasn't such a horrible rape enabler.

Wells has been confirmed by Tech boards as coming back for another year. However, rumor mill is saying Briles is very interested in the recently vacated OC position on the staff.

I just don't see it happening though. Briles is known poison at this point.

I wouldn’t have him on my sideline, the distraction isn’t helping anything.   

Lebby should exercise better judgment, watching the BV response, it doesn’t appear he knew this was happening until after it did.

i don’t know how long briles should bear his cross but, again, i don’t want him near our program


Cheesy Mustache QB might make an appearance.

New warning: Don't get in a fight with someone who doesn't even need to bother to buy ink.

This one here is employee vs. employer

Eh this is bad but will go away when they ask Art to not be on the sidelines wearing the gear. Unless I'm missing something bigger

I think we need a Rick Daris behind the scenes exclusive on this one.
