Chad Hasty Calls On Texas Tech Board Of Regents To Clarify Reason For Robert Duncan Ouster [VIDEO]
On Wednesday's edition of The Chad Hasty Show, Chad delved deep into the announced retirement of Texas Tech University Chancellor Robert L. Duncan, the possible reasons for the retirement, and what forces may have been behind it.
Hasty talked at length about the questionable intentions and loyalties of the Board of Regents, the undercurrents and behind-the-scenes deal-making surrounding the creation of a veterinary school at Texas Tech, and how Texas A&M University and raw politics may have been the commanding influence behind Duncan's departure as Chancellor.
Expounding on the overall situation, Hasty said,
Here's what really upsets me ok? The Board of Regents at Texas Tech University being influenced, and taking that influence to heart, and carrying out the request of another university, when it hurts Texas Tech...Any Board of Regent at Texas Tech University that was lobbied to and complied with Texas A&M University should immediately resign...Your job is to do what is in the best interest of Texas Tech University, and you failed at your job, and it's time for you to go...Either you guys put up reasons, and a good reason, why Robert Duncan had to go, or come out with your statement saying you absolutely support a vet school [at Texas Tech] moving forward. But the longer you guys stay silent, the worse it's going to get for you, in my opinion. Because Texas Tech alumni will not, will not, accept this in my opinion.
If any of them were influenced by Texas A&M University, and did the will of Texas A&M University, they should all resign. Because they're not striving for honor. They're doing the will of Texas A&M University. You might as well go and join Texas A&M, because you're not representing Texas Tech.
Hasty, at times describing the circumstances as resembling a possible "hostile takeover" of Texas Tech by Texas A&M, said
If this is A&M taking over Texas Tech, at what point do we just rename the school, 'Texas A&M Lubbock', if we've got five of our regents who are now under control of Texas A&M?
