As if things couldn’t get more heated ahead of tonight’s matchup between Texas and Texas Tech, a new report has come out that stirs the pot even more.
According to Mason Horodyski of KAMC News in Lubbock, head coaches Mark Adams and Chris Beard got into some sort of confrontation last night. Details of the event have yet to come out, but it’s yet another headline ahead of what will already be a heated contest.
Beard is making his first return to Lubbock since leaving for the Texas job in April of last year. While with Texas Tech, he led the Red Raiders to their first-ever Elite Eight (2017-18) and the program’s first national championship appearance in 2018-19. Those days are long forgotten though if you as the Red Raider faithful.
When he and the Longhorns arrived last night, their busses were met with a nasty chant and familiar hand gesture.
Now, fans are lined up clear across campus to get into the arena tonight and it seems that this is going to be a spectacle, both on and off the floor. Tipoff is scheduled for 8:00 pm CT and will be in front of a full capacity crowd.
Grab your popcorn folks, this is going to be one hell of a ride.
