For you Jerry Moore fans

Now that Jerry Moore is a bit of a cult hero - I posted last month the one video that is on YouTube that features a Tech team coached by Jerry...

Oddly enough, that game versus the Aggies is the 1982 game - and Jerry Moore's time at Texas Tech would be up just a few years later...and the Texas A&M game probably figured into the end of "Moore Excitement" at Texas Tech.

The fall of 1985 was the end of "Moore Excitement.'' Tech lost a game to Texas A&M when Jerry Moore couldn't make up his mind whether to go for a tie or go for two - and so wound up going for two, futilely, from the 8-yard line. Over the next few weeks, James Hamrick from Rice and Brandy Brownlee from SMU kicked long field goals right at the end of close games, grinding Tech's season - and Moore's fate - into dust.
