Yahoo – The Texas Tech coach and her seven chessmasters who won their second straight national championship this month will all return next year to defend their title. But they’ll be doing it at a different school. In an unprecedented move in the world of college competition, Texas Tech’s entire team will transfer to Webster University in the chess hotbed of St. Louis, home to the World Chess Hall of Fame. The private university promised more funding for the team and access to a new, 6,000-square-foot learning center in the city. Unlike athletes who play college activities governed by the NCAA, chess players can transfer without sitting out for a year. Coach Susan Polgar chose Webster because of its ties to its home city’s chess community. ”St. Louis today is the center of chess in America,” she told the Associated Press. “It just seemed like a perfect fit.” Polgar is a self-taught prodigy from Hungary who became the top-ranked female player in the world at 15 and has multiple world records related to the game. She developed Texas Tech into an unlikely chess powerhouse since her arrival in 2007. The team’s success drew numerous suitors from universities looking to improve their chess programs. When Webster offered full scholarships for all players, Polgar was sold. Her foreign team — members come from Iran, Germany, Israel, Brazil, Azerbaijan and Hungary — said it had no qualms about moving.
Power move! Checkmate! Susan Polgar and her brigade of foreign chess nerds just giving a giant “Fuck You” to the Red Raiders. You don’t wanna give me a 6,000 square foot learning center? Then me and my squad and both our our big old championship trophies are fuckin OUT. Good luck rebuilding that program, Texas Tech! Lets see how many boosters and donations are flowing when you’re fielding a chess team with a bunch of fuckin jabronis playing Chinese Checkers.
And don’t for one second tell me there isn’t some shady shit goin on here. We got NCAA basketball players and football players getting suspended for taking money to be able to pay for dinner. We got entire programs under scrutiny for making phone calls when they weren’t allowed to. And now you’re gonna tell me Webster University woos an entire, preexisting championship team and that nothing funny was going on? Bullshit. If you don’t think Webster University promised these 7 nerds the most St. Louis nerd pussy they can get their hands on, you’re nuts. Come to Webster University you can bury your rook in as many queens as you want! Probably gave them unlimited World of Warcraft. Free Nooks and Kindles. And to be honest I don’t even wanna know how Susan Polgar got all these foreign geniuses to come to Texas Tech in the first place. You know when you see an absolute stud playing at some no name college and the only explanation is that boosters straight up gave him anything and everything he wanted? Well when the world chess champion from Azerbaijan all the sudden commits to Texas fucking Tech, there’s a 100% chance its because Susan Polgar gave him his first blow job.
PS – What the fuck are these kids doing? You’ve won back to back titles. There’s nothing left for you to prove. Just turn pro already
