Oh, those clever Texas Tech fans.
If they aren't tossing tortillas onto the field for reasons unexplained, they're sending prank faxes to former football coaches.

You probably remember the story of how Tommy Tuberville left Texas Tech for Cincinnati, and not in the best of ways. One alleged story goes that Tuberville was at dinner at the 50 Yard Line Steakhouse with a Texas Tech recruit in Lubbock when Tuberville abruptly got up, left, and a few days later, took the job at Cincinnati.

That's what the recruit claims, but Tuberville said that wasn't what happened. The point is, Texas Tech fans believe that's what happened. So on Wednesday – National Signing Day in college football – fans knew Tuberville would be anticipating a whole bunch of faxes from high school football players across the nation who would be signing letters of intent to play for the Bearcats.

And, according to Texas Tech's SB Nation site, Viva the Matadors, the fans faxed Tubervile copies of the menu for the 50 Yard Line Steakhouse, the restaurant in question. It came with a note:

Date: 2-06-2013
From: Texas Tech Nation
To: Tommy Tuberville and staff.
MEMO Was thinking of you. . . We will miss you . . . Here is an intent letter to remember us by
Signed XoXXOOxxoo WreckEmTech

Whether any of this actually reached Tuberville or even the Cincinnati football office is anyone's guess.
