Tech Soccer Faces Florida in Sweet 16

After a strong finish against Auburn Friday, Texas Tech soccer makes its first ever appearance in the NCAA Tourney's Sweet 16. They will need to beat Florida in Gainesville at 1PM today in order to advance. Even though our ladies got off to a slow start with Auburn, they found a way to win in the final minutes. Auburn scored early, and Tech battled back, with Paige Strahan finally getting the equalizer just before the half. The 2nd half we played solid on offense and defense, and Alli Murphy took a surprise shot from midfield that sealed the 2-1 win. MURPHY'S LATE GOAL SENDS TECH INTO...

Five Thoughts on Texas Tech 80, Missouri State 68

Texas Tech gets 18 points from newcomer Devaughntah Williams, including 5 three-pointers, and freshman Norense Odiase has another strong game with 13 points and 7 boards, leading Texas Tech to a win over Missouri State. Game Links * Box Score * Recap It was the outside shooting of DeVaughntah Williams that sparked Texas Tech in the first half to seemingly match March Marshall shot for shot and the Red Raiders were able to pull past the Missouri State Bears in the second half, 80-69. This was a close game for most of the first half, but Texas Tech continued to do a good job of...

Ten Thoughts on Texas Tech 34, Iowa State 31

We've got ten thoughts on Texas Tech's 34-31 win over Iowa State, from the spectacular play of DeAndre Washington to the fact that Texas Tech was down to a walk-on safety by the end of the game. 1. DeAndre Washington Was Spectacular. He was. It was fantastic and it was just a joy to watch him play. It's really incredible how good he's been all year and yesterday, he proved again, that he's the best player on the team, finishing with 186 yards on 20 carries and 51 yards receiving on 2 catches with 2 touchdowns. Washington's play was what won the game and it's clear, if it hasn't been,...

Post Game Thread: Texas Tech Wins, 34-31 Over Iowa State

The Red Raiders earn their 4th win of the year and beat the Iowa State Cyclones, 34-31. A huge win, in a season where Texas Tech has struggled to find wins, over the Iowa State Cyclones, 34-31.  The Texas Tech defense was bending and bending and bending all afternoon, but when it really mattered, the defense came up with two huge stops, on third down by Nigel Bethel II and on 4th down by Micah Awe. Patrick Mahomes was 23 of 35 for the day for 328 yards and THE STAR OF THE GAME WAS DEANDRE WASHINGTON AND DEANDRE WASHINGTON NEEDS TO BE IN ALL CAPS FOR THE REST OF THE NIGHT BECAUSE HE CARRIED...

The Art of Texas Tech's Student Section

Texas Tech has one of the best student sections in the nation, and there's a reason why. Here's an explanation on how the Students and Athletic Department make it possible Over the years, Texas Tech has been known as having one of the best student sections across the country. For College Football, it was ranked as one of USA Today's Top 10 Students Sections and was #1 in the Big XII according to ESPN. They broke attendance record for Football, Basketball and Baseball last year, and continue to grow while other's across the nation start to lose attendance. Everyone who plays a game in...

Texas Tech Soccer Takes on Auburn

Tech women dominated Prairie View A&M in the first round of the NCAA tournament 8-0. In the 2nd round, they face a tough Auburn team with the hopes of advancing to Sunday's game. Texas Tech recorded the most dominating win in the NCAA tournament in program history. They beat Prairie View A&M soundly, and Janine Beckie got an impressive first-half hat trick. Coach Stone was pleased to be able to get all of his players some minutes on the field in the first outing and liked how they took care of business. He even talks about when he asked them to stop scoring and just hold possession of the...

Texas Tech v. Iowa State | Away Game Hotspots

Stoney LaRue is in town with one of the best country albums of the year. I have really enjoyed Stoney LaRue's music over the years, and I think he has one of the best voices in country music. His latest album, Aviator, is chock full of more great music from the Okie including Golden Shackles and First One to Know. But, my personal favorite is a cover of Natural High. This song was performed over the years by many of the all-time greats (Conway Twitty & George Jones, to name a few), but Stoney dedicates his performance to Merle Haggard's version. Check him out if you're in town. Ames,...

Air Raid Playbook: Double Slants

We take a look at the first touchdown of the game against the Oklahoma Sooners, how and why it worked. Everybody loves running quarterbacks. They create plays with the feet and force the defense to account for one more weapon - defending six players instead of five. But the best dual-threat quarterbacks are pass-first oriented. They use their feet to extend the plays, always keeping their eyes downfield looking for the open man. Patrick Mahomes is one of those quarterbacks. Formation Towards the end of the first quarter, the offense has driven inside the 10 and is facing a 3rd and goal...

Red Raider Gridiron: Kliff Kingsbury's Salary; Breiden Fehoko Accepts UA Honor

Is Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury overpaid? We take a look at his salary in comparison to the rest of college football. Texas Tech commit Breiden Fehoko accepts his Under Armour jersey. Will Le'Raven Clark declare for the NFL Draft? Coaches Salaries. USA Today released their coaches salaries and Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury is the 36th highest paid coach and to me, this is about right where you would want Kingsbury in comparison to the rest of his peers. Sports on Earth's Matt Brown writes that Kingsbury is one of the five most overpaid coaches and Kingsbury is generally in...

Red Raiders in the NFL 11.19.14

It was a tough week for many of our Red Raiders in the NFL this week. However, Crabtree did have a good game, and Amaro spent his bye week on the sidelines with Texas Tech on Saturday. Crabtree grabs clutch catch. Michael Crabtree had a solid game against the New Orleans Saints, as his San Francisco 49ers got a big road win. He caught 3 passes for 85 yards and a touchdown, and he had a key play that led to the W. Trailing 21-24 with 1:34 left in regulation and the 49ers facing a 4th-and-10 from their own 22-yd. line, QB Colin Kaepernick connected with WR Michael Crabtree on a 51-yard...

Texas Tech Hoops | A Trip to the Pete Maravich Assembly Center

I traveled to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to watch some real live Red Raiders basketball action up close and personal. Here is an account of my adventures inside "The Deaf Dome" as an outsider. The rush of excitement was overwhelming as I pulled up in my rental car to the athletic side of the LSU campus in Baton Rouge. The complex is developed so that their football stadium, track & field park, and basketball arena are all located right next to each other. I had been exchanging messages with MikeTTU and @TTUHoopsFans (Bill) throughout the day getting pumped about the game. It all hit me with a...

Red Raider Gridiron: Texas Tech Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury Learns from 2014; New Players at Bandit

Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury is learning lessons from a rough 2014. Safeties coach Trey Haverty says that there will be new players at the Bandit linebacker position in 2015. Kingsbury Learns From 2014. ESPN's Travis Haney has a really fantastic piece about how head coach Kliff Kingsbury is learning from the lessons and issues of 2014.  I'll tell you to read the whole thing and it should be reassuring that we, as Texas Tech fans, continue to read these sorts of articles about how Kingsbury is not his public persona.  There's a story about how after the TCU game, Kingsbury...
