Big Blue Nation, our man Perry Stevenson is in the business of writing these days, and used today’s writing to give some insight into what the players at Texas Tech are going through right now, based on his own experiences with Billy Gillispie at Kentucky:
It only took me a few months to realize what we were in for, but like any other ball player in my position, you attempt to play through it. Play through all the insults, apologies, team meetings, 6 hour “voluntary” film sessions, his crying, your crying and enough blood (just from the blisters on your feet) to feed every vampire from the Twilight series for a very long time. Aside from that, B.C.G. knows a little about the game. I just wish I could have warned Tech about what they were getting themselves into.
With all the news coming out of Lubbock in the past couple of days that is eerily similar to news that came out in Lexington after he was let go at Kentucky, it’s hard to imagine Gillispie being the Head Coach at Texas Tech much longer. Especially if the players accusations catch wind of the NCAA, who might like to ask him and the players a few questions.
