Let's Talk Iran

All the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting.

Politicizing the War on Terror

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

Rather than acting with courage and doing the right things in the War on Terror, President Barack Obama has chosen to follow the voices of his Far Left political base.  As one would expect from a Progressive, war has again been politicized just as health care, education, and welfare. The watershed decisions in the War on Terror and in the very survival of Western Civilization are now those to be made by President Obama on Afghanistan and Iran.  The War on Terror is not like Vietnam.  If the Democrats defund the War on Terror and continue to appease Iran, we will not be insulated by the Paci

Welcome back, Carter ... and non-injury news

By: Adam Zuvanich | Blog: Zuvie's Views

Texas Tech lost a key offensive lineman Saturday when starting center Shawn Byrnes suffered an apparent left leg injury during the 48-28 win over New Mexico. His status for this week's game against Kansas State is in question, but another offensive lineman will be back for the Red Raiders' Big 12 Conference home opener. All-American guard Brandon Carter, who was suspended indefinitely after the 29-28 loss at Houston on Sept. 19, has been reinstated.

Tech gets a win, but with a price

By: Adam Zuvanich | Blog: Zuvie's Views

With four crisp passes by Steven Sheffield late in the first half Saturday, Texas Tech snapped out of its two-week funk. The Red Raiders had lost two in a row and were locked in a tie game with winless New Mexico, but the backup quarterback led four straight scoring  drives to ignite what became a 48-28 blowout at Jones Stadium. Sheffield wasn't perfect in relief - throwing three touchdown passes but turning it over twice - but he proved he's capable of succeeding as a Division I quarterback.

Sheffield is human after all

After entering the game for the last drive of the first half, quarterback Steven Sheffield led Texas Tech to touchdowns on four straight possessions. But he looked very much like a backup on the last two. Sheffield fumbled the ball away while being sacked on the first play of the fourth quarter, and on the Red Raiders' next possession, he threw an interception to Frankie Solomon - who returned it 29 yards for a touchdown that made it 35-14. Sheffield's still having a good game, though. He's completed 13 of 18 passes for 217 yards and three touchdowns.

As it turns out, Nathan Stone might not have been OK after all.

Tech extends lead early in third quarter

By: Adam Zuvanich | Blog: Zuvie's Views

Texas Tech fans can breathe a little easier now. The Red Raiders just went up 21-7 about five minutes into the third quarter. New Mexico turned it over its own 34-yard line on the opening possession of the half, when Brandon Sharpe stripped quarterback Donovan Porterie at the end of a 9-yard scramble and LaRon Moore recovered for Tech. Steven Sheffield then led a seven-play scoring drive, which was capped with a 5-yard run up the gut by Baron Batch. The crowd then fell silent for a few minutes when Nathan Stone went down on the ensuing kickoff.
