Statement from Texas Tech University:
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.
