Post-Game Thread: Texas Tech 27, TCU 82

Tech loses 82-27 in a pathetic performance in Fort Worth. Poor defensive and offensive execution, along with bad turnovers, doomed the Red Raiders in a 55 point defeat. Here is your post annihilation thread Ugh. We're not very good Texas Tech and TCU came out firing, exchanging big plays with each other early on in the game. Kenny Williams and Devin Lauderdale scored on 50+ yard plays and Jakeem Grant gained 50 yards down the field on another possession. The defense wasn't helping though, allowing a huge run up the middle for a TD, letting Boykin break loose and throw a 50 yard TD and...

Weekly Conversation: Talking "Real" Journalism and Kingsbury on Injuries

Seth and Travis discuss real journalism in today's media environment, plus we opine on Kliff Kingsbury's thoughts on injuries and how he reports them each Monday. Seth: Well, it was really pretty nice to get that win. I mentioned after the game that if felt like a true team win in the sense that everyone helped pull this along.

The Huddle: Texas Tech Red Raiders vs. TCU Horned Frogs

Texas Tech travels to Ft. Worth to take on the nationally ranked TCU Horned Frogs. We have your complete preview for Saturday's game. Giving Cumbie Credit. I haven’t talked all that much about Sonny Cumbie, but I am happy for him. Just like a lot of you, I was disappointed when he left, but understood why he did leave. We’ve never really gotten the story as to why he left and we’ve been left to guess, which is always fun, but the thought was Cumbie wanted to stretch his wings as a coordinator and be out on his own. I get that. There was also that salary factor that was bounced...

Thanks to Hawkeyed Frog at Frogs O' War for answering a few questions about the TCU Horned Frogs.

Red Raider Gridiron: Grant and Marquez to Play; Barnes Plays 3 Positions

Kingsbury said that Jakeem Grant and Bradley Marquez will play on Saturday, plus, Jalen Barnes is currently playing strong safety, but his best position is maybe the Raider linebacker spot. Grant and Marquez to Play. We have a lot of short notes from coach Kliff Kingsbury's coach's show, including the note that both IR Jakeem Grant and IR Bradley Marquez will both play on Saturday according to Kingsbury and special teams coach Darrin Chiaverini, via the LAJ.  This is really terrific news, especially if you want Texas Tech to have much of a fighting chance against TCU as they offer...

Quick Reaction: Texas Tech adds 2017 OT Tyler Castaneda

And we have our first 2017 commit. Just a day after Texas Tech offered Robert Castaneda's brother, he shuts down his commitment and becomes a Red Raider. Here is your reaction thread Well here's something we weren't expecting. Texas Tech got  it's first commitment of the 2017 Class in Offensive Linemen Tyler Castaneda. He was offered just yesterday by the Red Raiders and decided that Texas Tech was the place he wanted to be One reason he might've pulled the trigger so soon was because he mentioned wanting to play with his brother after he got offered. It's always cool when siblings or...

Air Raid Playbook: Fake X Sweep, Dive

We're going to see how a play against West Virginia set up a touchdown against Kansas. You remember Lauderdale's first touchdown last week? I wrote about it here. We broke it down and looked at how it all worked. Well, that same play allowed Texas Tech to score again this week. Just in a little different manner. Let's take a look. Formation It's the exact same formation Tech ran the Lauderdale X Sweep. A little different personnel, but the same formation. Above is from two weeks ago versus West Virginia. Below is last week versus Kansas. The only differences are with the personnel....

Red Raider Hoops: Texas Tech Basketball's Media Day

Texas Tech held their media day in Lubbock where the media is introduced the 7 newcomers on the team as we learn that the team thinks that they will be more athletic than they were last year. Texas Tech held their media day, where we were introduced to all of the new players and the current team. Listening to the players, they very much stress that this is a much more athletic team, one that will have an easier time getting up and down the floor and creating some easy opportunities and buckets.  That would be nice, especially considering the team lost so much offense with the graduation...

Red Raider Gridiron: Ross Making an Impact; Impact Recruits at Texas Tech

Defensive end / linebacker Andre Ross is making an impact on the defensive line as of late. The Big 12 is not reeling in the top recruits, except for one program, Texas Tech. Two Minute Drill with Kingsbury. Ross Making an Impact. The LAJ talks with DE/LB Andre Ross, who has really played well since Mike Smith took over and defensive line John Scott, Jr. says that it was a change of attitude: "He's gotten a lot better from when he first got here," Tech defensive line coach John Scott Jr. said. "I would say Andre's gotten a lot tougher. We knew he always had ability, but his mental...

Red Raiders in the NFL 10.22.14

Cody Davis continues to make us proud to claim him as a Red Raider, and Welker is a game changer even when he's not the intended receiver. Davis winning on and off the field. In covering our Red Raiders in the NFL, it's usually really hard to find any news on one of our favorites St. Louis Rams Cody Davis, but this week was different. The Rams had a big win over the Seattle Seahawks, and Coach Fisher was quick to credit special teams' role in the victory, including our very own Cody Davis leading misdirection on a punt return that yielded a 90-yard touchdown run. According to Fisher,...

Big 12 Hoops | Block/Charge Rule Interpretation Changes

Big 12 Hoops | Block/Charge Rule Interpretation Changes

College basketball rules can be changed only every 2 years. This is an off-year, but that did not stop the Big 12 officials from changing their interpretation of the rules. The zebras are never the favorite guys on the court by either side of fans. I know that I had my fair share of complaints watching the Big 12 games last season with the inconsistency of calls that were made. We are not going to get March Madness officiating in our regular season games, but at times the referees downright sucked in their foul calls. My biggest complaint was the inconsistency with calls on the new...

Red Raider Gridiron: More Injury Updates; Different Defensive Alignments

Texas Tech continues to work through the injuries from last week and we have updates on Grant, Marquez, Davis, Robertson and Phillips. Texas Tech is also using a bit different front seven defensive personnel recently. Injury Update. The LAJ has an injury update, or at least who was wearing shorts and t-shirts and who was wearing pads. Wearing pads was Dominique Robertson, so that's good, but not wearing pads was the three inside receivers, Jakeem Grant, Bradley Marquez and Jordan Davis.  Kingsbury said that Grant and Marquez would not practice early this week, while Davis is recovering...

Recruiting on the South Plains: 2015 G/F C.J. Williamson Player Profile

Texas Tech and Tubby Smith secured their second commitment of the 2015 class, C.J. Williamson, a 6-5 combo guard with point guard skills and small forward frame. C.J. Williamson, a combo-guard or small forward from Orlando, Florida, became the second, and maybe last, commit for Tubby Smith in the 2015 class. I write "last" because technically, Texas Tech only has two scholarships available for the 2015 season, one that will replace Robert Turner, and the second is an open scholarship. Of course, there could be transfers and things of that nature, but it wouldn't surprise me if...

Pullquotes: Kingsbury, Robertson & Washington

We've got the notes and quotes from Monday's press conference as the team prepares to take on the TCU Horned Frogs. By now, we've heard the updates that Kingsbury was offering up on IR Jakeem Grant. If you haven't, though, Kingsbury said that Grant ha sstitches under his chin, seems to be doing well and is probable for the game this weekend against TCU. Kingsbury also that this situation is an ongoing investigation and as of right now, Grant's status with the team is unchanged. Unless something comes out about Grant's involvement in this incident, I wouldn't expect his status with the team...
