Texas Tech Coach Tubby Smith Crashes Motorcycle During School’s ‘Showtime’ Event

It’s that time of the year when schools try to hype up their fans for college basketball season.

On Friday night, we all saw Drake’s big entrance to Kentucky’s Big Blue Madness event with a lint roller.

Not to be outdone, Texas Tech coach Tubby Smith came flying in on a motorcycle as Shaft to the school’s Midnight Madness “Showtime” event.

Unfortunately, things didn’t go as planned.

Smith ended up taking a fall on his bike, but luckily, he was okay. The Red Raiders coach seemed more concerned with the condition of the court.
