Winners and Losers

Winners discuss wins. Losers discuss recruits.


Hey red, your about as

Hey red, your about as negative as your boys feaco, lodotx and factsrfact. Another day, another negative post from you 3+1. We get it your bitter but dude give it a break. Its just one negative post after another from you. "winners discuss wins losers discuss recruits" lol wtf. Let me try and follow that thought. Is that what alabama and texas and ohio state are doing now year after year? Not to bust your bubble but texas tech is not exactly the powerhouse of winning championships. You claim to have "deploma(s)" from texas tech on your previous post....trust me you have to learn how to spell diploma and i promise you dont have diplomas when you cant even spell it. Follow the 3 stooges up to pullman and cheer on leech, i promise they will save you a seat at their pep rallys. You can help them fight for what leech didnt get here or whatever it is you think it is you complain about helps



Mike Leach is no longer a factor in Texas Tech football. Only two Fab 44 recruits is. If we haven't dropped out of Rivals Top 25 yet, we soon will. Recruiting looks dismal this year. If the Jucos don't work out we'll probably take Kansas place at the bottom. We may even go two years without winning a conference game at the Jones or going bowling. I hope I'm wrong but I wouldn't bet on it.


J.J. Bynum

Legally changed his name to J.J. Lollar.


next season new start

I wasn't pleased with last season's results. I am going to take the positive approach and look for 8 or 9 wins with a big improvement on defense via the juco recruits. If Eric Stephens can get healthy and the offensive line can protect Doege, next season will be very much improved!


@ Red

Great programs win in February that is how they win in the fall. We are currently 25th in the Rivals rankings. You do realize that since Rivals started ranking recruiting classes we have been ranked 1 time prior to last year and that was #25.

We will finish somewhere between 20-30. We have a very solid class with a nice balance of defensive talent.

We had no choice but to recruit JUCO defensive players this year because we have no experienced depth on that side of the ball. Not Coach T's fault.


Joe Paterno and Texas Tech

JoPa has passed away. May God bless Joe Paterno and his family. Many have suggested Joe died of a broken heart. In the case of Texas Tech football, there can be no doubt the fan base is in intensive care. And the diagnosis is "Broken Heart." Hope the fan base doesn't pass away. I would hate for the perpetrators of the crime to deliver the eulogies. Life goes on in the nuclear crater we call Lubbock.

Red: Be sure and put on your Kevlar vest. Facts aren't popular among some around here.



Seriously a broken heart? It was Cancer.

If the Texas Tech fans are indeed in "intensive care." I suggest they rally around the players and coaches that work so hard for the university. What a novel concept right?

Correction we are currently ranked 24th by Rivals.


4 Uncommitted from Texas?

Why doesn't TTU ask the 4 uncommitted players, all from Texas, to visit OUR football program and campus?

You just never know - they might want to play closer to home than at the schools where they have visited.
