Red Raider Gridiron: Terrific Running Game; RIP Guy Griffis; Doege to Start

Red Raider Gridiron: Terrific Running Game; RIP Guy Griffis; Doege to Start

Texas Tech has had a terrific running game this year and we can thank the offensive line, running backs and quarterbacks. Former Red Raider Guy Griffis passed away. Doege to start for Saskatchewan. Terrific Running Game. The LAJ with a nice look at why the running game has been so good and as you might imagine, offensive line coach Lee Hays gives credit to Davis Webb and DeAndre Washington for making the correct reads: "I think anytime we have success running the ball, it's really a group effort, and that's not coach-speak," Hays said Tuesday. "It's the quarterback seeing the...

Red Raiders in the NFL 10.1.14

Amaro is quietly making a case as the Jet's best TE. Crabtree shows his resilience. Waddle is day-to-day, and Amendola is dead to Tom Brady. Amaro Stepping Up. The New York Jets had a rough week, losing 24-17 to the Detroit Lions, but Jace Amaro had his best game yet. He is emerging as the same type of security blanket for Geno Smith that he was for our young quarterbacks last year. He is currently only playing 30-40% of snaps, but hopefully that will change soon, as he caught everything thrown his way averaging 11.6 yards per catch on Sunday in the Jet's struggling offense. For this...

Texas Tech v. Kansas State | Away Game Hotspots

Texas Tech v. Kansas State | Away Game Hotspots

"My degree of optimism is negotiated daily..." - Bill Snyder In honor of the legendary Coach Snyder, I've thrown together a collection of his quotes and wisdom. It's not as if I've delved through hundreds of interviews and cherry-picked the best stuff, this is just from the Big 12 Media Days. The man has a way with words, and has sent handwritten letters to Texas Tech players including Kliff Kingsbury and Jace Amaro. However, to keep everyone on their toes, I am putting one quote in the mix from a former Big 12 coach. I will award 100 VTM bucks to the first person with the correct...

Big 12 Hoops | A Quick Look at our Conference Foes

Big 12 Hoops | A Quick Look at our Conference Foes

Let’s check-in with what has been happening to the other Big 12 teams around the league this off-season. TEAM NOTES Kansas Lots are talking about all the stars they lost from the roster… reality check, this is KU and most all the players on the roster are stars. Even the incoming freshman Cliff Alexander, Kelly Oubre, and Devonte Graham are supposed to be stars. Combine the frosh with returners Perry Ellis and Wayne Selden and you have another contender for the Big 12 title, and a NCAA tourney run to the Final Four. I think KU will be the team to beat again, as usual, in our...

Red Raider Gridiron: Webb in Pads After Practice; All Safeties Are Healthy

Davis Webb was in full pads after practice, leading some to speculate that he could be available on Saturday. All safeties are fully healthy for Kansas State and Lee Hays opines on the offensive line. Webb in Pads After Practice. It was reported on Twitter last night by a handful of folks that QB Davis Webb was in pads after practice yesterday.  Practices are closed to the public, so all the reporters simply saw was Webb in shoulder pads, but didn't see him actually participate in any drills or anything.  So, the natural assumption is that Webb can or will play on Saturday. That may be...

What's wrong with Davis Webb?

We're all day to day, even when waiting for Halloween to finally get here. This time of year he has a one track mind. Cade, my five-year old son, has been cautiously obsessed with Halloween since before he could crawl and he starts planning for its arrival soon after his late August birthday. Every year he gets the flyer from Party City and studies the various costumes available to him if only he could catch a ride to the store. Cash, his two-year old brother, is now in on the act and they'll lie on the carpeted floor, painstakingly debating whether to be a purple Ninja Turtle or fat...

Pullquotes: Kingsbury, Marquez and Nelson Talk K-State

Head coach Kliff Kingsbury, IR Bradley Marquez and CB Justis Nelson talk Kansas State and the Oklahoma State loss. This week, we have head coach Kliff Kingsbury and players IR Bradley Marquez and CB Justis Nelson.  Here's the transcript for those three individuals. I've also done a non-transcript for defensive coordinator Mike Smith and offensive coordinator Eric Morris.  Just to remind everyone, a non-transcript is where I sit at my computer and just type what I hear and I don't go back and rewind the tape.  These are not actual quotes, more like notes of the quotes.  One interesting...

Red Raider Gridiron: Webb is Day to Day; Nine Receiver Drops; and Kingsbury is a Scoundrel

Red Raider Gridiron: Webb is Day to Day; Nine Receiver Drops; and Kingsbury is a Scoundrel

QB Davis Webb is day to day with his non-throwing shoulder injury. There were nine receiver drops against Oklahoma State and James Mayfield calls Kliff Kingsbury a scoundrel. Webb is Day to Day. Hey, aren't we all!  #jokes  Anyway, head coach Kliff Kingsbury said yesterday that QB Davis Webb is day to day and his status for Saturday's game is unknown.  Kingsbury said during the presser that he had not seen Webb yesterday prior to the press conference and would see him at practice later.  I think Kingsbury is always going to say this and it is true, but it also permits Kingsbury to not...

Sunday Funday

Your open thread for the second best day of the week. Let's talk about your fantasy lineups, Charlie Weis and Davis Webb's shoulder. Brady Hoke looks like he's in a mess of trouble at Michigan after leaving a clearly concussed QB in the game yesterday and Mizzou stole a win in South Carolina. Mike Leach got a sleepy win last night against Utah and Baylor rolled Iowa State. Top tweets: Man, the SEC must have really sucked before it raided the Big 12.— Patrick Vint (@HS_BHGP) September 28, 2014 Clearly, when you’re losing to a  sub-.500 Texas team, things have bottomed out for your...

Ten Thoughts on Texas Tech 35, Oklahoma State 45

Ten thoughts on Texas Tech's loss to Oklahoma State, 45-35. The injury to Davis Webb to the debuts of Patrick Mahomes and Mike Smith, plus links and video. 1. It's Just Bad Football. This was head coach Kliff Kingsbury's first comment in last night's press conference: Texas Tech 35, Oklahoma State 45: Game Links * Stats * Quotes * Post Game Notes *Photo Gallery "No. I've never seen a team shoot itself in the foot as many times as we did tonight. It was embarrassing football, honestly, that's the only way to put it; 158 yards on penalties, three turnovers, one going in the red zone...

Red Raiders Fall to Oklahoma State, 45-35; Webb Injures Shoulder

The Red Raiders started strong, but were plagued by penalties and turnovers as Texas Tech fell to Oklahoma State, 45-35 in Stillwater. Penalties. Penalties. Penalties. Penalties. Penalties. Penalties. Penalties. Penalties. Penalties. Penalties. Penalties. Penalties. Penalties. Penalties. Penalties. Penalties. That's just 16 penalties. Texas Tech cost itself so many times during this game with penalties after penalties. I don't even know how to solve this and I've been thinking about it for a long time. Oh, and the refs were pretty terrible all the way around tonight, but whatever. I'm not...

Tech-OSU Brew of the Day

Have a pint of our Game Day Beer dedicated to the matchup against OSU. Today's Game Day Beer is the award-winning CopyCat IPA from Australia's Mash Brewing! CopyCat is based off an American IPA recipe that the Australian's wanted to try to recreate. I assume that they took everything they could from the American's in replicating this American Indian Pale Ale. I'd even guess they import their water from West Texas just to get it right. Here are just a few alleged reviews of the brew just to give you a 'taste' of what they've been able to accomplish with the Copycat: It starts off really...

Is Berry Tramel the Thayer Evans of Oklahoma Journalism?

Is Berry Tramel the Thayer Evans of Oklahoma Journalism?

Sadly it seems we are increasingly trading substantive reporting for page views. A few days before, being at such a crossroads was impossible to imagine. After Game 2 it was Scott Brooks who looked worn and beaten; it was Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook who were arguing on the sidelines. Now, in the span of six days the roles were completely reversed. It was the Spurs who couldn't seem to find an answer and the Thunder that seemed to be in complete control. It was Tim Duncan and Tony Parker that were struggling to understand the strategy of their head coach, and it was Durant and...

The Huddle: Texas Tech Red Raiders vs. Oklahoma State Cowboys

The Texas Tech Red Raiders take on the Oklahoma State Cowboys and we have the most extensive preview on the internets. A Change In Philosophy. Oh, no. Not that change. No. We're talking about something that's I think is going to happen, you know, with the defensive coordinator resigning and all, which is the idea that it appears that Kliff Kingsbury is making a fairly substantial change in how he might operate his offense moving forward.
