Texas Tech Issues Release on A&M Bus Vandalism; Says Smelly Substance was not Manure

In a release this afternoon Texas Tech attempted to set straight rumors flying about the vandalism of Texas A&M buses this weekend.

In the release, Tech reprimands an A&M official who tweeted about the incident, saying it was unfair of him to accuse Texas Tech and its students of vandalism without first hand knowledge of the incident. Also in the release, Tech calls the incident a prank and says Holiday In staff and bus drivers had the buses clean by the time the staff member arrived.

The full release is as follows:

Many of you are aware of a tweet from a Texas A&M official that their team buses were spray painted and animal feces were spread inside of the buses early Saturday morning.  The clear implication of the tweet was that this was the responsibility of Texas Tech fans or students. Texas Tech has conducted an investigation regarding this allegation, and has discovered the following:

  • The buses were not spray painted. Instead, washable shoe polish was used on the windows of one of the buses.
  • No feces were found either in or on the buses.  Fish bait was dropped onto the floor of one of the buses.
  • The alleged “vandalism” was cleaned by the bus drivers and Holiday Inn staff before it was seen by the A&M official who tweeted the information.

While incidents such as the ones alleged are inappropriate and strongly condemned by Texas Tech, it is no less wrong to condemn the entirety of our university, students and supporters by posting inaccurate information on the internet for the purpose of sensationalizing the actions of one or a very few. We are disturbed by the careless use of social media to share these inaccuracies.
