Red Raider Baseball Preview - Kansas Jayhawks

Red Raider Baseball Preview - Kansas Jayhawks

Tech looks to finish the regular season strong with a home finale against Kansas After having more than a week off to focus on finals and graduation, the Red Raiders are back in action tonight as they take on a surprisingly good Kansas team. Coming into the season Kansas was not expected to do so well but currently they sit in a position where a series win in Lubbock or a great showing in the conference tournament might land them in the postseason tournament. They currently are 59th in RPI and are 9-12 against teams in the top 25. For Tech, if they sweep Kansas they will grab a share of...

Big 12 Baseball Power Rankings

Big 12 Baseball Power Rankings

Rankings for the week of 5/15/17 Texas Tech is still in the running for a share of the Big 12 regular season title. Oklahoma took two of three from TCU to give Tech a chance, though the task is difficult, it’s not impossible. The Schedule Texas Tech is down 1.5 games in the standings and with TCU’s Big 12 slate done, each win would let the Red Raiders gain 0.5 games. Therefore, Tech needs to sweep Kansas this weekend. Not as easy a task at it seemed early in the season, the Jayhawks are one of the good surprise stories this year and playing like a team that no one wants to face with...

Recruiting update: Tech lands Iowa transfer

Recruiting update: Tech lands Iowa transfer

Tech signed a Big 10 running back, and extended offers to multiple defensive backs and a legacy wide receiver The Texas Tech football team may have filled a key need on the 2017 roster with the commitment of Iowa RB grad transfer Derrick Mitchell Jr. earlier this week. The running back position was a key target on the graduate transfer market and Mitchell’s commitment gives the Red Raiders another versatile option to use. Mitchell Jr. was recruited in 2013 as an athlete and his rushing and receiving yardage totals were nearly identical in his time with Iowa, indicating Kliff Kingsbury...

The Air Raid Podcast: #84

Tech slips in the standings and Tech loses 2 WR to transfer Tech slips another game behind TCU in the standings. With the Red Raiders off this weekend, what needs to happen in the TCU vs Oklahoma series to give Tech a chance next weekend? Also, Tech football loses two wide receivers to transfer. Jonathan Giles and Tony Brown. What impact does this have on the team and is this smoke from a program in trouble or is it just the cost of doing business in college football today?

Red Raiders Baseball Postseason Update

Red Raiders Baseball Postseason Update

A look at where Tech will be playing after the regular season ends Big 12 Conference Tournament The 2017 conference tournament is played in Oklahoma City, at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark, where it will be through the 2020 season. The tournament runs from May 24th-28th, and that is where the simplicity and logic of this tournament ends. The Big 12, as everyone knows, currently has 10 members. However, only 9 schools field a baseball team, with Iowa State being the lone one out. So how does a 9-team baseball tournament work? First of all, the 9th place team isn’t invited. Then the remaining...

The 2017 Texas Tech football recruiting class is different

The 2017 Texas Tech football recruiting class is different

Rarely, in the history of the program, have you seen Texas Tech bring on so many potential impact players with the swoop of a pen.  According to the Scout.com rankings, and other sites, Tech landed six of the Top 100 junior college players for 2017, and we also landed a National Top 50 High School player in Jack Anderson. That’s seven players who should be expected to start or contribute heavily for the upcoming season. For those of you that don’t keep up with the recruiting rankings, that’s a lot of highly rated, experienced talent. The adage coaches tend to abide to is that you go...

Lauren Bogle answers your questions about Tech athletics @vivathematadors Will Jett Duffey return to the program?— ChulpaBatman (@tehoverlord) April 25, 2017 Solid question! Let’s recap, for those of you who don’t know ... Texas Tech QB Jett Duffey was suspended from Tech. A former Mahomes’ protege, Duffey is currently suspended for six months from the program. The details of his suspension have been hush hush, which could bode well for Duffey’s return. Then again he is missing quality practice time. I believe the former first-team all-state and Class 5A player of the year...
