Some Tech players get ticketed at pep rally

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - We knew that parking was gonna be tough at Jones AT&T Stadium this year but you might not have thought parking would be a problem for the players. Turns out, some players are getting parking tickets, and even threatened with getting their cars towed.

After the pep rally Thursday, about a dozen cars near the stadium waved a parking ticket on the windshield. In fact, some had multiple tickets. We were told that none of the Red Raider football players' cars actually got towed, but we did see a tow truck arrive just as players were going back to their cars after practice.

"Very stupid. Ridiculous," said one Tech football player.

"Man it's messed up. We got nowhere to park," said another Tech player.

"We're not even safe in our own house," said a third Tech player.

In all fairness, some of those players were parked in a fire lane. Texas Tech chose not to comment.
