Red Raider Gridiron: No New Info on Grant; Texas Tech Relying on the Running Game; Injury Update

Texas Tech has not released any new information on Grant. Texas Tech is relying on the running game more and more, plus an update on all of the injuries from Saturday's game. Grant Involved in Possible Stabbing. I've heard about "krunkness" and to make it relatively easy on you, it's apparently a wild arsed party where lots of crazy stuff happens.  I don't know when it first started, but it's been around for at least the last two or three years.  I have no idea who organizes it and I don't think it is the sort of party that gets corporate sponsors, but I could be wrong.  As Travis...

Review of Texas Tech Basketball's Showtime Event

Review of Texas Tech Basketball's Showtime Event

Texas Tech gave us a sneak peak into next season with Showtime this past Friday. There was performances, a 3-point Contest, Dunk Contest and Scrimmages from both the men's and women's team. Here's what went down. I was fortunate enough to go to Showtime Friday, a pep rally for the basketball teams, and get a preview of what the 2014-2015 season has in store for the Red Raiders. They had many events there, including performers, a 3-point contest, Dunk Contest and scrimmages by both the men's and women's team. Here's a little review of what went down and what to expect from the...

Ten Thoughts on Texas Tech 34, Kansas 21

Texas Tech earns a win against the Kansas Jayhawks, behind the strong running game of DeAndre Washington and a Texas Tech defense that forced Kansas into a couple of turnovers and 4 of 14 on 3rd down. 1. Feels Good. Pretty nice little win as far as I'm concerned. Kansas came in averaging 155 yards a game running the ball and about 175 passing the ball. The Texas Tech defense did a pretty remarkable job of stopping the run, especially for a team that's been so maligned this year, allowing only 128 yards rushing and 3.2 yards per carry. That's some really nice production for a maligned...

Quick Reaction: Texas Tech reels in 3-star SF CJ Williamson

During his visit to Texas Tech, CJ WIlliamson decided to end his recruitment and commit to the Red Raiders. He becomes the 2nd commit and 1st forward in the class. Here your reaction thread. During his visit to Texas Tech, CJ Williamson shuts down his recruitment and commits to the Red Raiders. He becomes the 2nd commitment of the class and the first forward for 2015. CJ Williamson gives Texas Tech another tremendous athlete and a vertile player that can play the 2, 3 or 4 if necessary. Here is my review of CJ WIlliamson from back in May: CJ Williamson - Small Forward (Evans, Orlando,...

Post-Game Thread: Texas Tech 34 Kansas 21

It wasn't pretty, but it's been more than a month since we last got to celebrate. So make the most of it, responsibly. Ring your bell responsibly. The Texas Tech Red Raiders outlasted the Kansas Jayhawks 34-21 on a cloudy afternoon in Lubbock and improved to 3-4 on the season. With the victory the Red Raiders snapped an eight-game conference losing streak. Two Davis Webb turnovers led to 14 Kansas points and made the game closer than it should have been but Mike Smith continues to work wonders with Pete Robertson and the entire defense and the Tech running game is looking better by the...

Talking Kansas vs. Texas Tech with misterbrain from Rock Chalk Talk

We welcome misterbrain from Rock Chalk Talk talk about the game this weekend and the state of the Kansas football program. Much thanks to misterbrain over at Rock Chalk Talk for taking the time to answer some questions about the Kansas Jayhawks. Seth: Is it an incorrect assumption to think that it is a huge sigh of relief that Clint Bowen is now in charge and Charlie Weis is now in Kansas' rear view mirror? What's the general mood of the Jayhawk faithful? misterbrain: I'd say we are cautiously optimistic at this point. The big fear is that Bowen will get lucky a couple times, get a win or...

Weekly Conversation: Getting kicked in the junk

Weekly Conversation: Getting kicked in the junk

Seth and Travis talk about getting kicked in the junk, the future of the defense and hiking trails. Seth: Well, can I kick you in the privates one more time or perhaps several more times? Travis: I haven't been that disappointed or upset after a loss in a long, long time. It was one of those games when you wake up on Sunday morning, stretch out your arms and feel happy until suddenly remembering the game and the way they lost. Then the rest of the day is ruint. For 56 or 57 minutes it felt like one of those turning points and that things were coming together. The defense played well until...

The Huddle: Kansas Jayhawks vs. Texas Tech Red Raiders

We take a close look at this weekend's game between the Kansas Jayhawks and Texas Tech Red Raiders, complete with thoughts on being patient with the coaching staffs, players to watch for Kansas, keys to the game and Bruce Lee GIF's. 1-11. 4-8. 4-8. 7-6. That’s the records of California, TCU and West Virginia last year. The toughest thing to do in a year like 2014 is stay positive. I’ve been down this road before and to be honest, I’ve been pretty lucky as a blogger to think that since 2006, when I started this thing, Texas Tech has only had 1 losing season and this may be the...

Red Raider Gridiron: Boom or Bust for Stockton; Making it to Print

RB Justin Stockton is currently a boom or bust running back and has to work on that. Kansas QB Michael Cummings gives the Jayhawks a passing shot. VTM finally makes it to print. Two Minute Drill With Kingsbury. Boom or Bust. The LAJ writes about how RB Justin Stockton is a boom or bust running back, either he's breaking a huge play or a stopped at the line of scrimmage and running back coach Mike Jinks says that this is a result of Stockton just not seeing the holes just yet: It's all about seeing the holes, being more decisive and getting a feel for running inside. That's where junior...

Air Raid Playbook: X Sweep

We're breaking down Devin Lauderdale's first career TD, which almost ended in disaster. Hello, Devin Lauderdale! It was nice to see him get more involved and make some big plays this past weekend. Late in the first quarter, Tech converted on a short fourth down attempt on a slant to Jakeem Grant. Subsequent first down play was an incomplete pass, and that brings us to our play this week. We've seen this play before from a different formation and with a different receiver, but it's essentially the same. Formation First off, Tech is in a power running formation look, at least for Tech....

Red Raider Gridiron: Ward at WF Rider; More Uniform Surprises; Bustin Waiting

Former Red Raider footballer Eric Ward is at his old high school coaching, but looking to continue his playing career. The DT interviewed the equipment manager and says there will be more uniform surprises. K Ryan Bustin hasn't had many opportunities this year. No Time for Bustin. The LAJ writes about how K Ryan Bustin has been on the sideline much of this year kicking only two field goals this year after setting records last year.  I feel like this article is just taunting Travis.  Anyway, here's Bustin: "I want what is best for us, clearly we are not where we want to be at 2-4,...

Red Raiders in the NFL 10.15.14

Jace Amaro catches his first touchdown of the regular season and receives Gronkowski comparisons. Crabtree has another solid game, and Welker adds one catch to his record. Is Amaro Half a Gronkowski? Rex Ryan was asked on a media call if the New York Jets thought they were getting a clone of Rob Gronkowski when they selected Jace Amaro. "Oh, that would be nice," Ryan cracked Tuesday on a conference call with the Patriots media. "Do I think that would be the case? No. You're talking about a guy that's scored, what, 20-some touchdowns? I mean, yeah, we would love that. We'd love half of...
