AP writer Betsey Blaney, smoke and mirrors supporter of Texas Tech Living Lie University indicates in the morning paper that Larry Hayes was "1,509-860 at Tech" and "695-381 at NAIA LCC." To further quote old Bet "....giving him more than 2000 victories overall".
A correction is needed here: First old Bet doesn't need to add 695 wins at NAIA from LCC twice since they have already been included and second old Bet and Watson need to state outright, in fairness to Larry Hayes, that almost half (695 vs 788) of his wins were at NAIA LCC.
Overstating a retiring Tech coach's wins by 695 by a seasoned AP Tech writer indeed qualifies as another and maybe the ultimate "Tech record".

Yeah, I can see how someone who held the most famous record in American sports, for over 30 years, could get overlooked.
