Why are we giving Baylor a

Why are we giving Baylor a break and letting them bypass playing at tech. Guess you got to grease the hands of wealthy alumni.


@red raider for life

You are talking to a brick wall. Maybe he will be like his idol, Tuberville, and take the midnight greyhound out of town.


@red raider for life

I do not understand how people can think that a first year coach can and will win the conference when they have done nothing great the last several years.

Every major coach including greats like Bear Bryant, Darell Royal, and Tom Landry were was a first year head coach once in their careers. This guy has to be a nut.

One of the things that many people do not realize or remember is that Tech has never been a top recruiting school in Texas and probably never will be when you consider the opposition and the attractions elsewhere. I think this rating of # of 4 star and 5 star recruits is overrated. What matters is what you do with the people that you get.

It is great to have a coach that cares about the school and who doesn't make excuses for every thing that goes wrong. It appears from what I have read, that Cincinnati is not that enamored with Tbuerville. I am just so glad he is gone.



Very true, Lubbock is automatically labeled a no-mans-land when you research it. So unless they actually come here and see it for themselves they will never see it any other way. I never remember Welker or Crabtree being 4-5 star recruits. Do you? We don't have a top 25 recruiting class! We are doomed!!!! So many expectations developed from virtually thin air around here. I don't get it.


recuiting matters and stars do to

Tech been reliably in the 14-27 range since 2002 with some bad years. Crabtree was a solid 4 star as most of our star players since 2002 have been 4 stars. Very few 2 star recruits did much.



i dont know why they did this but it started in 2009. Maybe they wanted it to be like the UT and OU game. It will never be like that not the same amount of fans. My Baylor fans love it they never have to play at tech in Lubbock . It also gives baylor another home game basically. 350 miles for tech fans to the game and like 96 for waco. Why would tech do this. It would be nice to see if someone did an investigative piece on this because it just dose not pass the smell test. Never seen a team to give up every home game to play at another sight with one school being almost 3 times the distance away


The reason we play in DFW is

The reason we play in DFW is because of our large alumni base and recruiting purposes. Not saying its right or wrong but thats the fact!



I hear you about recruiting, but it is going to take a while. Tech has really never recruited that well. A lot of you are asking a lot out of a team that has a first year coach and a collection of freshmen QB's. I wish Tech could pull in those 4 - 5 star recruits but that is going to take time. Baylor is just now doing it, and it took them a very long time to get where they are today. It's probably going to take Tech 3 or 4 years before they really start getting these recruits. Kliff is not a miracle worker. He's just a football coach that works his butt off. In the sights of recruiting I really don't understand everyone coming down on Kliff for the 2014 class. He hasn't been here for a year yet so how can he make an immediate impact on players that have been contacted since they were juniors or sophomores? Couple that in with the recruiting rules that you have to abide by. Not to mention that probably 25% of the country and 40% of the state know about Tech and can locate it on a map. It's going to take time guys. Let's just enjoy the bumpy ride and understand that it takes time to make something great. If you want something automatic then you are cheering for the wrong school. Tech has never been in the dominate position or even winning a Big 12 outright conference championship.
