Where do the Raiders go from here?

By: Adam Zuvanich | Blog: Zuvie's Views

NORMAN, Okla. - Saturday's 65-21 loss to Oklahoma was no doubt a painful one for Texas Tech, which saw its hopes for a national championship slip away in front of a national television audience. The Red Raiders were on top of the Big 12 Conference and ranked second in the country, but now they're locked in a three-way tie atop the South Division with the Sooners and Texas. And they'll likely drop out of the top five when the new rankings are released on Sunday. How was a team playing with poise and confidence rattled by a big-game atmosphere, which it thrived in for nearly a month?

A year makes a big difference for OU's Murray, Bradford

By: Adam Zuvanich | Blog: Zuvie's Views

NORMAN, Okla - The last time DeMarco Murray played against Texas Tech, he was nursing an injured knee and an injured psyche. The Oklahoma running back dislocated his knee cap late in last year's 34-27 loss to the Red Raiders, which ruined the Sooners' chances of winning a national title. Murray had a much more enjoyable night Saturday, when OU squashed Tech's national-title aspirations with a 65-21 win in Norman, Okla.

It's almost time for Tech-OU

By: Adam Zuvanich | Blog: Zuvie's Views

A little after 5 p.m. today, Mike Leach and his troops hopped off charter buses and began their march into Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. They looked reserved and resolute, and not at all bothered by the jeers from a small group of OU fans standing outside the gate. Now the Red Raiders and Sooners have taken the field for warmups, and the stands are quickly filling up.

Barack Obama Can Turn Up the Heat

By: Donald R. May | Blog: Mr. Conservative

The Earth is getting colder.  Our climate has been cooling for a long time.  Al Gore had not noticed until recently.  The climate controls in his private jets, limousines, and large SUVs have kept him warm and cozy while the rest of us are having a chill.

Ready for a wild weekend in college football?

By: Adam Zuvanich | Blog: Zuvie's Views

There might not be a more pivotal weekend in college football than the one upon us, and I'm not just talking about the clash between Texas Tech and Oklahoma. Several other conference championships and potential BCS bids are up for grabs, and I can't wait to see it all unfold. Here's a look at Saturday's lineup, which has more story lines than the drama-filled Dallas Cowboys. I went 12-3 last week - for the second week in a row, I might add - and my overall record is 128-48. Michigan (3-8, 2-5 Big Ten) at No.

Friday Night Fights: Robots vs. Nazis!

By: scottslemmons | Blog: Hero Sandwich

I don't know about you, but after a week as wild, wooly, wacky, and, um, wabash-cannonballesque as this one, I needs me a little dose of violence to get the weekend started right.

Obama’s Perfect Crisis

By: Donald R. May | Blog: Mr. Conservative

The stock market continues to plunge as investors watch their portfolios and retirement accounts plummet in value.  Is this the opportunity President-elect Barack Obama will use to solidify power and to insure the transition to a European Socialist economy?

All aboard the Polar Express -- well, if you can get through...

By: Anonymous | Blog: Center Stage

I am starting this blog at the request of some parents and grandparents who have been trying for weeks, if not longer, to buy tickets for the Polar Express attraction in Lubbock.This is the first year that these railroad cars have been brought to Lubbock and the locals hired to re-enact a visit with Santa that took place in the best selling book and animated film.There were bound to be kinks, but I've never encountered so many people so worried about whether or not their reservations are firm. And that's if they even got through...
