Texas Tech v. Baylor | Neutral Game Hotspots

I have two dollars and a Casio. Who's up for playing a little dashboard piano to some Ray Charles? A lot of you are probably traveling this week, and I hope that your trip goes smoothly. It has to be better than Del and Neil's voyage to Chicago. Arlington, TX Like so many times this year, you guys bailed me out and handed me a nice list of eateries in the Arlington area. You might take a gander at the post for the previous Baylor game (I've included some recommendations from the comments) as well as last month's TCU game for a few more ideas.

Texas Tech Hoops | Odiase is Filling in for Tolbert

Since the transfer of Jordan Tolbert to SMU; the true freshman Norense Odiase has been filling in nicely for the void left in the frontcourt. I was extremely worried when Jordan Tolbert decided to leave the Texas Tech basketball team this offseason. He was the one guy on the roster that could play down low as an undersized center and hold things in check. When he left, also so did our only PF/C that would play approximately 26 minutes per game while averaging almost 11 ppg & 6 rpg. There was no replacing that with a true freshman; or so I though. In comes Norense Odiase (a true freshman)...

Five Thoughts on Texas Tech 75, Northwestern State 64

The Red Raiders earned their 3rd win of the year with a 75-64 win over the Northwestern State Demons, led by 13 points from PG Robert Turner. Game Links * Box Scores:ESPN * Official Site: Recap The Texas Tech Red Raiders led for the entire game and beat the Northwestern State Demons, 75-64. The first half wasn't the prettiest half of basketball as Texas Tech missed a handful of lauyps and short shots, but was still up by 9 on the Demons. The more we see this team, the more we learn that this is going to be a pretty deep team, at least it is right now, and head coach Tubby Smith...

Red Raider Gridiron: DeAndre Washington's 1,000 Yard Milestone; John White Pressed Into Duty

DeAndre Washington discusses breaking the 1,000 yard mark while S John White, a former walk-on, was pressed into duty on Saturday against Iowa State. Multi-Tasking. I was out last night, doing the Dallas Arboretum 12 Nights of Christmas, which Fitsum and Mrs. Seth C really enjoyed (I did too, but maybe not as much as they did), so if you need something to do on a night, it was good. The bad thing is that there just isn't much news out there this morning.  Anyway, I'm writing the football post while watching the game at 3:45 am.  Let's do this. Texas Tech Photo Book.

Pullquotes: Kingsbury, Washington & Robertson

We've got the notes and quotes from Monday's press conference as the Texas Tech Red Raiders prepare to take on the Baylor Bears in Arlington in the last game of the season. As I was reading through the transcript of this last press conference of the season, it hit me just how quickly this time of year moves. It feels like last week that Seth had all of us writers sit down and basically set the schedule of posts that would be up on the site during the season. And here we are, week 14 of the season and only a few days away from the off season. But we've got the basketball season, baseball...

Air Raid Playbook: Play-Action Swing

We're taking a look at a pivotal moment in the game against the Iowa State Cyclones last week. With Texas Tech down four points with just over four minutes remaining in the game (and the ball on the 44), Kingsbury calls a play action pass. DeAndre Washington already has 180+ yard son the ground, and another 50+ in the air, so the Cyclone defense is wary of letting Washington get any space with the ball in his hands. Plus, the Tech offense was driving, taking up some clock, so the Cyclone defense needed a stop to hold onto a hard-fought home win. But as the defense was converging to stop...

Red Raider Gridiron: Mike Smith and Eric Morris Discuss Texas Tech; Mike Mitchell to be one of Defense's Best Players

Red Raider Gridiron: Recapping Iowa Sate; DeAndre Washington's Big Day

We look back one last time to the Iowa State win as we round up the articles about the game and we start looking forward to the Baylor Bears. Here we go. We round up the various articles from the LAJ and a few other weekly stops. Relying on Running Backs. LAJ's Don Williams writes about how the running backs led the team on Saturday, including some thoughts on RB DeAndre Washington and RB Kenny Williams: Years from now, when they're talking about this sub-.500 season, they can say they gave it their best when it didn't seem to matter. Not that Washington is much for bragging on...

Tech Soccer Faces Florida in Sweet 16

After a strong finish against Auburn Friday, Texas Tech soccer makes its first ever appearance in the NCAA Tourney's Sweet 16. They will need to beat Florida in Gainesville at 1PM today in order to advance. Even though our ladies got off to a slow start with Auburn, they found a way to win in the final minutes. Auburn scored early, and Tech battled back, with Paige Strahan finally getting the equalizer just before the half. The 2nd half we played solid on offense and defense, and Alli Murphy took a surprise shot from midfield that sealed the 2-1 win. MURPHY'S LATE GOAL SENDS TECH INTO...

Five Thoughts on Texas Tech 80, Missouri State 68

Texas Tech gets 18 points from newcomer Devaughntah Williams, including 5 three-pointers, and freshman Norense Odiase has another strong game with 13 points and 7 boards, leading Texas Tech to a win over Missouri State. Game Links * Box Score * Recap It was the outside shooting of DeVaughntah Williams that sparked Texas Tech in the first half to seemingly match March Marshall shot for shot and the Red Raiders were able to pull past the Missouri State Bears in the second half, 80-69. This was a close game for most of the first half, but Texas Tech continued to do a good job of...

Ten Thoughts on Texas Tech 34, Iowa State 31

We've got ten thoughts on Texas Tech's 34-31 win over Iowa State, from the spectacular play of DeAndre Washington to the fact that Texas Tech was down to a walk-on safety by the end of the game. 1. DeAndre Washington Was Spectacular. He was. It was fantastic and it was just a joy to watch him play. It's really incredible how good he's been all year and yesterday, he proved again, that he's the best player on the team, finishing with 186 yards on 20 carries and 51 yards receiving on 2 catches with 2 touchdowns. Washington's play was what won the game and it's clear, if it hasn't been,...

Post Game Thread: Texas Tech Wins, 34-31 Over Iowa State

The Red Raiders earn their 4th win of the year and beat the Iowa State Cyclones, 34-31. A huge win, in a season where Texas Tech has struggled to find wins, over the Iowa State Cyclones, 34-31.  The Texas Tech defense was bending and bending and bending all afternoon, but when it really mattered, the defense came up with two huge stops, on third down by Nigel Bethel II and on 4th down by Micah Awe. Patrick Mahomes was 23 of 35 for the day for 328 yards and THE STAR OF THE GAME WAS DEANDRE WASHINGTON AND DEANDRE WASHINGTON NEEDS TO BE IN ALL CAPS FOR THE REST OF THE NIGHT BECAUSE HE CARRIED...
