Callers Fill Show Airwaves With Debate Over Moving TTU/ A& M Game

Texas Tech has not made a decision on moving the Texas Tech/ A&M game to Dallas, but the prospect is now creating buzz again in Lubbock. NewsChannel 11 is told the regents may discuss the issue as soon as Friday, August, 12th.

The issue has been the talk of the summer for a local radio sports talk show on KKAM 1340. Since the it was brought up a month ago, callers have had heated debates. Talk show host, Ryan Hyatt said summer months are usually slower when it comes to sports partly because football isn't in season, but this summer listeners can't stop talking about it.

Hyatt said, "I'd say 80 to 90% have been against the move for a lot of different reasons, it goes from everything from competitive balance to economics to just not wanting change."

Hyatt said those for the move say the cash pay out will be worth it. Texas Tech officials have said moving the game to Dallas would mean more money for both universities.
