Branden Jackson welcomes teams to run on Texas Tech. He doesn't care how successful teams have been doing it. The Red Raiders defensive end knows those days are slowly coming to an end.
DeAndre Washington's doing all he can to take a label off the Texas Tech program. You know, the one about how the Red Raiders do nothing but pass since they embraced the "Air Raid" 15 seasons ago.
As Branden Jackson and Jared Kaster pulled the Red Raiders into a circle at the 50-yard line Saturday, the team chanted in unison with their helmets off and their emotions high. Every Red Raider gathered wanted one thing - respect.
Texas Tech safety Josh Keys has been kicked off the team for a team rules violation, Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury said after the Red Raiders' 34-21 victory Saturday against Kansas. He did not elaborate, other than to say Keys will not be back this season.
