Former Texas Tech baseball coach Larry Hays didn't know how good a player Josh Bard was going to be, let alone that he'd develop into a 10-year Major League catcher, when Bard arrived at Tech. Neither, apparently, did Bard.

Red Raiders try to devise game plan to counter Longhorns' big back

The 6-foot-1, 249-pound Foreman presents some of the same problems the 6-2, 252-pound Warren exploited last year. The Red Raiders won last year’s game 48-45 despite Warren’s running wild, and now they have to devise a way to slow Foreman.
