Texas Tech Fans Send Tommy Tuberville a Menu of Intent
Readers of the Texas Tech SBNation website, Viva The Matadors, had their own idea of a Letter of Intent for Cincinnati head coach Tommy Tuberville.
The Letter of Intent faxed to Tuberville was actually a ‘Menu of Intent’.
The cover of the fax reads:
From: Texas Tech Nation
To: Tommy Tuberville and staff.
MEMO Was thinking of you. . . We will miss you . . . Here is an intent letter to remember us by
Signed XoXXOOxxoo WreckEmTech
The next two pages of the fax were copies of the menu of the well-known 50 Yard Line Steakhouse.
If you aren’t familiar with the 50 Yard Line’s menu, the steaks are given football specific labels. Sirloins are Halfback, Wingback & Captain; Rib-Eyes are Center & Quarterback and so on and so-forth.
In one of his last acts as Texas Tech Football head coach, Tommy Tuberville, ditched recruits at a dinner at the 50 Yard Line. The next day, Tuberville resigned from Texas Tech and became the head coach of the Cincinnati Bearcats.
