Tubby Smith dressed up as Shaft and crashed a motorcycle. These are the things that happen at Midnight Madness.
We had Drake joining Kentucky and airballing a three-pointer. We had Jim Boeheim entering the court on a Humvee while "Born in the U.S.A." blared in the background. How could those two be topped, you may ask?
Enter Tubby Smith -- literally. At Texas Tech's Midnight Madness, the longtime college coach dressed up as Shaft, a reference all the college-aged students in the crowd are sure to get, and drove a motorcycle out onto the court.
Only one problem with Smith's plan: turns out he's not so good at stopping the motorcycle, as seen above.
Luckily Smith was completely fine. In fact, his own well-being wasn't even his main concern.
Dressed as Shaft, Tubby Smith drives a motorcycle on to the court. Crashes it. Then asked if he scratched the court. Awesome.— Blayne Beal (@BlayneBeal) October 18, 2014
Texas Tech probably isn't going to be very good this year, but it can't get much worse than literally crashing on the court... we hope.
