    Wow, I'm surprised this is happening. Didn't Texas Tech invent chess?

    I suspect Mike Leach is behind this somehow.

    Eh, they are all grad students, and they probably all came to Tech because of the coach/team. Grad students have next to no school loyalty. I think Tech somewhat lucked into this one (although at some point you have to encourage the program) and they wont miss it too much.

    I hope they all lose though so that the National Title stays in Texas, UNT is still a perennial favorite.

    "St. Louis today is the center of chess in America."

    Is there any wonder why we hear so much about St. Louis being the new L.A.?!

    Isn't it a little late for the April Fools jokes?
