Stay classy Raider High/Tortilla Tech
Stuff like last night's basketball game is going to keep you out of the Pac-12 should they expand by poaching the Big 12. 07-coffee3



This isn't the first time you guys have done crap like this and it most likely won't be the last.

Some high $ / low class fan sitting court side "reportedly" dropped an ethnic slur on Smart when he went out of bounds in his area.

Stuff like this has no bearing on conference realignment. What does matter are fans and TV ratings which is something UH fails miserably at.

Try getting 50K to show up to a uh game and the coogs might have a chance to get in the Big 12 once the Texoma 4 leave.

In some respects it does, are you a good cultural fit. Being seen as backward rednecks does not help TTU cause to get a invite from the P12, if that's the long term ambition.

Statement from Texas Tech

Quote:In conjunction with a review of the actions of Oklahoma State guard Marcus Smart by the Big 12 Conference, Texas Tech has completed its own thorough investigation regarding the incident at last night's basketball game involving Red Raider fan Jeff Orr. Texas Tech interviewed Mr. Orr along with numerous fans, photographers and arena personnel that were seated in the area surrounding him. Mr. Orr vehemently denied the accusation that he used a racial slur and no one in the vicinity of Mr. Orr heard such a slur.

Mr. Orr has admitted to directing an inappropriate phrase toward Marcus Smart. Texas Tech has been able to verify that statement independently through video provided by Texas Tech Sports Broadcasting. At no point on the film can a racial slur be heard.

Texas Tech is committed to sportsmanship and expects fans to abide by the rules set forth by the Big 12 Conference and the university. Comments such as those used by Mr. Orr are unacceptable and not condoned by Texas Tech University.

As a result of this incident, Mr. Orr has voluntarily agreed to not attend a Texas Tech home or away basketball game for the remainder of the season.

Jeff Orr Statement

"I would like to take this opportunity to offer my sincere apologies to Marcus Smart, Oklahoma State, Tubby Smith and the Texas Tech Men's Basketball program. My actions last night were inappropriate and do not reflect myself or Texas Tech - a university I love dearly. I regret calling Mr. Smart a "piece of crap" but I want to make it known that I did not use a racial slur of any kind. Additionally, I would like to offer my apologies to Texas Tech fans that have been embarrassed by the attention this incident has created."

Glad to hear the university took quick action. Called the kid a piece of crap, I've been called much worst. Kid needs to control his emotions.

He definitely did NOT call him a piece of crap. No one flips out at being called that!
