There’s a Petition to Remove Tommy Tuberville From Commentating the Texas Tech-Houston Game
Well, that didn’t take long.
A Brownfield, Texas resident has started a Change.org petition asking that ESPN remove Tommy Tuberville from commentating on Saturday's Texas Tech vs. University of Houston game.
The creator of the petition didn't mince words. From Change.org:
West Texans and Texas Tech fans are typically polite, use southern hospitality and politeness as a lifestyle and a culture. This man's rude demeanor and poor professional quality…shows that hiring Tommy Tuberville for color commentary for any Texas Tech game is of bad taste and this action should be cancelled immediately.
Some of the comments folks left on why they signed the petition also tell it like they see it. For example:
“Why would we want a person doing the color commentary for our football team when he left a bunch of recruits sitting in a restaurant in Lubbock. Also, this is the same guy that compared Lubbock to Iraq. PLEASE do not allow him to cover our games.”
I'm not saying that you should or shouldn’t sign this petition; that's up to you. But I'll be nice enough to leave a link to the petition so you can if you feel the need to do so.
