Texas Tech Professor Accused of Watching Porn After Teleconference With Students

Texas Tech Health Sciences Professor Rod Hicks, 50, is under fire this week after students accused him of surfing the Internet for porn immediately after a teleconference from Austin. Hicks is one of the school’s endowed chairs.

Students allege that Hicks left the video feed open and then proceeded to surf for porn while students were still watching. In 2008, Hicks was given the UMC Endowed Chair for patient safety.

  1. So what ?!… students don’t surf for porn?!
    Can they survive the emotional trauma? Get a grip, kiddies.

    Seems more like they actually learned something and paid attention for a change…

    I’d prefer my professor to be relaxed when he teaches me, and even more so when he grades me.

    A teacher of mine wanted to show a powerpoint in class, but he had forgotten to close Mediaplayer earlier :>
    We all just shared a laugh and that was case closed.

    Yeah, I know, Europe is CRAY-Z!
    Just be glad he wasn’t fantasizing about his students already, puritans. There are worse oil leaks to be scared about.

  2. Buddha,

    Or Jimmy Swaggert, James Baker, Ron Jeremy, take your pick. How about Clarance Thomas, Long Dong Silver……Ask Anita…..I guess she didn’t needa…..

  3. From the linked article:
    KCBD NewsChannel 11 has confirmed from more than one source that TTUHSC asked Dr. Hicks to come home from Austin yesterday without telling him why. But instead of coming home when planned he took a different flight. Our sources say the university was unable to locate him Friday.

    They’ve got themselves a runner! Flight of shame.

    Oh and this being Texas does it matter what kind of porn Dr. Hicks was into?

  4. I am sure the tender sensibilities of the brothers of Gamma Beta Mu were shocked, shocked – I say again – by the images they were forced to view. How could they turn their heads or switch it off?

    To me, this is a classic non-story or a harkening back to some Puritanical notion of sexual propriety. It’s a two billion dollar industry. I suspect someone is watching.
