Track & Field




Tubby Talks John Wooden. Tubby Smith was on ESPN LA 710 to discuss the legacy of John Wooden and winning the 2016 Wooden Award Legends of Coaching trophy. This was a good listen, but I just enjoy listening to Smith talk about all sorts of things. Smith talked about his relationship with John Wooden and he also talked about how much he loves Texas Tech. When is Texas Tech extending Smith?


Bedford Responds. Via 24/7 Sports, Texas defensive coordinator Vance Bedford responded to Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury’s comments, who wondered if Charlie Strong’s comments about Texas being able to steamroll opponents:

Bedford, who appeared to get a kick out of the situation, referenced Kingsbury’s comments on Wednesday, referring to the head coach of the Red Raiders as “my boy down in Lubbock, Texas.”

“It’s a beautiful thing. That’s why I love some of the coaches in this conference,” Bedford said. “I like when they speak out that way because they speak their mind.”

Bedford spoke his, stating that if the Longhorns can surge forward this season, which would mean more wins than losses on the field on top of another good recruiting cycle, Texas might be in a position to steamroll opponents in the not-too-distant future.

Bedford is a quote machine and has a good sense of humor.
