Three-Star JUCO Quarterback Commits to Texas Tech

Three-Star JUCO Quarterback Commits to Texas Tech

Texas Tech has a new quarterback commit for 2017. McLane Carter, a three-star QB recruit from Tyler Junior College, announced today on Twitter he is committing to Texas Tech. His commitment came on the heels of his official visit to Tech on December 2nd. He picked up Tech's offer on November 16th and had an unofficial visit with them on November 25th. I bet on myself and it paid off #WreckEm pic.twitter.com/2YyOb3fRTv — McLane Carter (@McLaneC4) December 4, 2016 With the commitment of Carter, the Red Raiders can have good depth at quarterback next year if Patrick Mahomes leaves for...

Texas Tech Wins In The Final Seconds, 85-84

Texas Tech Wins In The Final Seconds, 85-84

The Red Raiders are now 7-1. I knew this would be one of the more closely contested games that Tech would play in the preseaon, but I had no idea it would be that close. You have to hand it to the Rice Owls for coming in ready to play today. They shot the ball well and played defense the full forty minutes. The Red Raiders were down 4 with under a minute to play and won the game. Livingston was fouled on a three point shot with 2.4 sceonds left on the clock. He ended up making all three and that was the ball game. This was a huge win for a team and a learning expirience for sure. ...

Reaction: Texas Tech Defeats Incarnate Word, 69-48

The Red Raiders are now 6-1. The game went exactly the way it was supposed to. I give Coach Beard’s team credit tonight for jumping out to an early lead and keeping Incarnate Word out of the game. Tech led at the half with a score of 38-25 and they were able to keep IC at bay the rest of the way. The Cardinals are a team with a lot fight. Tech led by as many as 24 early, but IC cut it all the way down to 8 points early in the second half. Fortunately the Red Raiders withstood the Cardinals charge and with about eleven minutes to go stretched the lead back to 15. Tech absolutely...

Red Raiders in the Pros - Week 12

Another week, another highlight-worthy catch from Crabtree Michael Crabtree - WR (Oakland Raiders) Coming into Sunday’s game against the Panthers Crabtree was listed as questionable to play, as he had been fighting an ankle injury and had not practiced over the week. He had a slow start to the game, continuing from last week in which he only had a few receptions for just 5 yards. As the Raiders were driving for what would be the game-winning drive, QB Derek Carr was under pressure and threw a deep pass down the middle of the field where Crab was being covered by a linebacker. That...

Texas Tech 2016 Season Recap

A look back at the 2016 season... The Texas Tech Red Raiders’ 2016 season reached its conclusion on Friday night at Jerry World in Arlington. After starting out 4-7 and coming off its worst loss – both in terms of margin of defeat and caliber of opponent – in the Kliff Kingsbury era, Texas Tech played arguably its best game from start to finish on both sides of the ball, beating Baylor 54-35. Let’s take a look back at the season’s major storylines and a glimpse at the upcoming offseason. 1. Our Coach’s Seat is Hotter Than Yours The debate over whether head coach Kliff Kingsbury...

Texas Tech Defensive Grades: Baylor

The Red Raiders Passed Their Final Exam of 2016 The Texas Tech Red Raiders rolled into Jerry Jones’s AT&T Stadium on Friday on the heels of the worst loss in the Kliff Kingsbury era. With little more than pride to play for, the Red Raider defense turned the anticipated shootout into a one-sided drubbing to end the season on a high note. Don’t let the yardage totals fool you here; this unit stepped up big time in the 54-35 win. Here are the grades for the season finale. Defensive Line: B- Ignore Baylor’s rushing totals for a second. Yes, they racked up 257 yards, but most were in the...

Texas Tech Offensive Grades: Baylor

The Red Raiders' offense came to play against the rival Baylor Bears! Texas Tech ended a rather disappointing season on a high note, beating the Baylor Bears for the first time since 2010 to finish 5-7. The Air Raid offense was on full display for a national TV audience as they scored 54 points and racked up 666 total yards. I know, scary! Let's hand out those grades for the final time this season! Overall Grade: A When you rack up that many yards, score that many points and win by double digits, you're primed to get a good grade from me. This offensive performance reminded me that this...

Texas Tech defeats Baylor 54-35 That's the Red Raider team we've been expecting to see all year. Hopefully it carries over to next season and keep everyone on the team excited for this team's potential. We also talk about whether it's enough to keep Kingsbury in Lubbock, whether Mahomes should stay or leave and what the future looks like. We will have another, more in-depth pod recapping the entire season in the next week or so, but until then. Happy Thanksgiving and How 'bout them Red Raiders!!!

Texas Tech vs Baylor - GAMEDAY THREAD

Red Raiders take on the Bears in the season finale Well, this is it folks. The end of 2016 for your Red Raider football team. The last chance to see some players who have put their heart and soul into this team for 4 or more years don the Scarlet (hopefully) and Black. Although we may not like how these players have performed on the field at times, they are still our Red raiders. Malik Jenkins - LB Justis Nelson - DB Quinton White Jr - RB Thierry Nguema - DB Keenon Ward - DB Reginald Davis - WR These are just a few of the higher profile members of our senior class that have had an impact on...

Texas Tech Basketball Tale Of The Tape: Idaho State Bengals (0-5)

The Red Raiders will play host to the Idaho State Bengals today at 2:00. Texas Tech is now 4-1 after coming off a 3rd place finish in the Cancun Challenge. Up next is Idaho State out of the Big Sky Conference. Last year the Bengals went 16-15 with an 11-7 conference record. So far this season, Idaho State is sitting at 0-5 and very well could be the weakest opponent Tech faces all year.

Wednesday Matador Mailbag 11.23.16

It's time to check out this week's mailbag! After the Iowa State Cyclones "squeaked by" our Red Raiders 66-10, fans had a few interesting things to ask for this week's mailbag. Let's get right into it! @vivathematadors @Maitland_TTU why hasn’t Kliff been fired yet? — Jonathan (@Jon1443) November 22, 2016 Kliff has not been fired yet because I don't believe he's going to be. This has not been the type of year Red Raider fans expected for sure, but it is what it is. I don't think Kliff is going anywhere soon because as much as some fans want him gone, that begs another question: Who...

Texas Tech Falls to Auburn, 65-67

Texas Tech is now 3-1 Well that was disappointing. The Red Raiders had a bad opening half and that ended up biting them in the end. Tech’s offense struggled the last eight minutes of the first half and really did not get much better until about the last fourteen minutes of the game. The half time score was 38-23. The second half had Tech trailing by about ten to twelve points most of the way. Finally, with about eight minutes to go, the Red Raiders got the lead down to eight points. The game was total grind for Tech and the team deserves a ton of credit for the way they kept clawing and...

Red Raiders in the Pros - Week 11

Hyder continues to impress as Amendola sets a new career high Danny Amendola - WR (New England Patriots) Danny, who has been used sparingly in the Patriots offense lately, only had 2 catches on 3 targets in this weeks victory over San Francisco, but he made the most of it. Brady escapes the rush and finds @DannyAmendola in the end zone! #NEvsSF https://t.co/P0DdARkl6b— New England Patriots (@Patriots) November 20, 2016 This was his 4th score of the season, a new high mark in his young career.

Texas Tech Defensive Grades: Iowa State

Rock bottom is a tough place to imagine and an impossible one to verify, but Saturday sure felt like it. The Red Raiders were thrashed 66-10 by Iowa State in what was an all-around nightmare. The previously 2-8 Cyclones did whatever they wanted in every phase of their offense and made the Tech defense look worse than ever. Grading this performance was as easy as it was dispiriting. Defensive Line: F Iowa State running backs weren’t extremely effective, but the Cyclone ground attack was funneled through quarterback Joel Lanning. Lanning, whose previous season highs were 74 rushing yards...
