Tommy Tuberville wants your headphones off, please

Is TT in deep PP at TT?

So, this happened during the Tech-Kansas game on Saturday:


Despite the video's provocative title and an angle that suggests Tuberville was insisting that GA Kevin Oliver pay him all of his got-dam money, if you look closely, Tuberville is actually just violently ripping off Oliver's headphones, less than pleased with the consecutive penalties that Texas Tech just earned for too many men on the field.

So own up to losing your cool, offer that it's a poor example, and move on, right?

Wrong.

Q. Early second half the situation where you had 4th and 2 at your midfield, what happened between you and your GA there?

TUBERVILLE: Oh, I reached and grabbed him. He was on the field, and I reached to grab him and pull him off. When I pulled, I missed his shirt and I grabbed his face mask and his microphone ripped off his head. I was trying to get him off the field.

Q. Was there no heatedness on your part?

TUBERVILLE: What?

Q. It looked like a lot of confusion there. They were throwing personnel on the field.

TUBERVILLE: Yeah, he was trying to help me get him off. But he’s standing out on the field and we’re trying to get him off, and the referee’s standing there. I just pulled him off and missed his shoulder and grabbed his ‑‑ I mean, it wasn’t anything to it. It was just one of those deals where I missed his shoulder and ended up grabbing the microphone on his head set and pulled it off.

Okaaay.
