NFL Draft Profile: Eric Ward

Next we take a look at WR Eric Ward, who decided to stay an extra year with the Red Raiders and postpone his draft dreams. We take a look at those dreams now.

Most draft analysis thought he was a mid-round choice back in 2012. Now, he'll be fighting for a chance to be drafted and remain on the roster. Let's take a look at his measurables and what he can do at the next level: WIDE...

Meeting Iconic Figures of Texas Tech | Ed Whitacre, President Nellis, and Kirby Hocutt

Last week I was in Lubbock on a trip that I will remember forever. I wrote a short story about last Thursday evening when I met some of the most powerful people at Texas Tech University. It was a surreal experience on so many levels. I remember being so proud receiving my engineering degree in 2008 from Texas Tech. I told all my friends that I’d be back on campus someday speaking about my career path to the students and meeting key TTU administrative people… no one really believed me. Hard work is the only way to achieve things in life. A way to help with that is having a chip on your...

The interviews, the press credentials, the twitter wars, it's all gravy to me.
