LUBBOCK, Texas – Before Michael Irvin would talk – before he’d share details about his relationship with Michael Crabtree – the NFL Hall of Famer said he needed to ask permission.
But Irvin was having trouble reaching the Texas Tech receiver he’s mentored for the past year. Once during the afternoon and again in the evening earlier this week, Irvin attempted to call the 21-year-old sophomore. Each time, the result was the same.
“The number you’ve dialed is not a working number,” a message said. “Please check the number and dial again.”
The recording wasn’t an error.
