Texas Tech Men's Basketball - Breaking News

Damn it, I won't be able to try out for Knight School now.

Bobby Knight resigned.  Texas Tech basketball will go through a rough patch the next five years.  Okay that may be a bit of an exaggeration, but historically it's what happens to programs after big coaches leave; hopefully Texas Tech won't follow the trend.  I'll be completely honest, when I first heard of Bobby Knight's resignation tonight I was shocked, angry, upset, mad, and scared for the future of Texas Tech basketball.  I am not totally agreeing with what Knight did, but I will say it makes sense. The Red Raiders have been mediocre at best, overall this season, starting 12-8 (3-3 in Big XII play).  If any time was the perfect time for Knight to hand over the reigns to his son Pat, it would be right now.  Texas Tech is right smack in the middle of the Big XII standings, and this is a great chance for Pat Knight to learn more about himself and now, his team too.  Pat Knight's first game as the head coach of the Texas Tech Red Raiders is Wednesday in Waco against Baylor.  This game needs to set the tone for Pat Knight's career as a coach and the Red Raiders need their first road win of the season.
