|Texas Tech University's Double "T"
This "career" started in 1983 as a fill-in for Steve Taylor who's wife was with child. It ended with the last 2012 home
game at Jones AT&T Stadium (11/20/2012 41-34 win over Kansas in double overtime). It was fun while it lasted.
Steve and Charlie Graves were the operators, a teletype-computer who were fellow TTU Computer Center
employees. Starting with the 1984 season, it was Charlie and me until Charlie retired 2 years later. Steve rejoined me
when (his wife allowed) his kids were out of the house; the last 5 years. Thanks, Steve.
I've only been in trouble three or four instances during that time span, two of them with Texas A&M football games,
both A&M losses.
In 2013, Texas Tech installed ribbon boards and a larger video display. The decision to cease operation of the message board ended my career of doing the Double T Scoreboard. Life progresses, changes and ends. It was a good run.
Created in the 3rd quarter of the 2002
home win against ut. Unlike some other
spur-of-the-moment, this message was
spelt CORRECTLY before displaying.
