We asked people on our redraiders.com Facebook page to share their thoughts about Tech’s 59-21 loss to Oklahoma State. Here’s a sampling:

Adrian Marquez: I don’t understand why the coaches decide to run the ball on 3rd and LONG!

Matt Foster: Jekyll and Hyde team. No consistency week to week. Stressful to prepare to watch ‘cause we have no idea which team will show up. Lukewarm.

Karl Baumgardner: I do not understand why our special teams blockers did not adjust at all to what OSU was doing. I do not understand why our linemen continue to commit the same mistakes in blocking, holding, false starts, etc. It makes no difference who the opponent is, we seem to make it a point to have at least one penalty, usually by a lineman, on EVERY possession.

Ray Mendoza: The lack of preparation is so obvious! If this was the best practice all season, Tuberville needs to go.

Joel Kucel: Texas Tech reminds me of the Dallas Cowboys ... enough said!

Brent Gibbs: “I don’t always run a draw play on 3rd and 15, but when I do, I usually lose yardage.”

Cliff Butler: As a Tech alum from ’77, that game was an embarassment.

Randy Wade: Tech did much better than last year! Maybe next year OSU will beat us by 15.

Brandon Carreon: Every coach that changes a system should be allowed three years to turn the program around. Well Tubs’ three years are up and we have seen significant decline each and every year. D-coordinators have been given the ax in an attempt to appease the fan base. Well now it’s time to fire the O-coordinator. We have top-notch student athletes but a less than average coaching staff. Changes must be made soon or the Red Raiders will become the whipping boys of the Big 12 by next year!

Lorie Vincent Tawney: I get so tired of “fire the coach”. Yes, that will solve all the problems. Injuries, terrible coordinators, dropped passes ... brilliant idea people. Just brilliant!

Tj Fly: I like how people are freaking out, when we’re 7-4. Just makes me laugh. As for my thoughts: I’ve been supportive of this staff from day one (including both failures at DC) but now I’m ready for a change at OC. He seems to get rattled when a play he calls doesn’t go the way he wants. Yes, our O-line was diminished today, but he barely adjusted. It seemed to me either throw it deep, or run it into the blitz. Why not take what the D gives you (like at the end of the first half)? Then go for the deep pass every once in a while? Still love this team and I still think we can win nine games this season..

Andy Baxa: I said it last week, injuries are hurting more than people think. Losing three of your best offensive weapons in Amaro, Bell and Marquez changed the offense. The lack of depth on the defensive side is more evident each week. Plus add in Brown’s questionable play calls and you have a recipe for disaster.

Alan Woods: Big 12 is a rough place. Team looks tired.

Michael Coomer: Playing all conference games without a bye week isn’t helping either

Beverly Henson: The attitude of a team is dependent on its coaches and how they prepare them each week. The excessive number of senseless penalties continues week after week. The announcers even commented on the poor play calling when Tech ran the ball on third and 15 and they were behind by 28 points. Oklahoma State had creative plays and thrived on a high energy level. I feel sorry for the players who work hard but need coaching leadership. Doege has done an awesome job but there was no offensive line at the game today to help him out.

Marvene Starnes: I am like a lot of other Tech fans ... die hard fan win or lose but wish they had won.

Toby Heidish: I would really like to see all you put pads on and do a better job! … So stop complaining about those who can and just show your support!

Merv Scurlark: Lots of injuries, tough team to beat at home. Still got my Guns Up! Let’s go beat them Bears!

Mack Evans: This is why I hate Facebook.

Losing sucks

Sonny dykes for HC or add Kliff Kingsbury and fire Brown? Which would be better?

Embarassing Loss

Thank God for the Houston Texans or my football season would have been one big disappointment. Not sure why Doege wasn't benched to begin the second half.

Nice Kid

Feel sorry for Doege. Very talented. Also very inconsistent. Very easily rattled. He will do very well in life. But it will be in a pressure free environment requiring little risk.

Awful

Largest attendance in the history of our University to watch this!

Absolutely the worst coaching I have ever seen in 44 years. Penalties, blocked punts, sacks, hurried throws, can't play man coverage.

Best be making some changes or may be worst attendance in history in 2013.

Interesting

Here is an interesting question that underlies this article. Are we not fans for posting our comments? I guess you the AJ and the Admin consider us as something less.

So it is interesting that you have to post Facebook comments. Is that the only way that you can get any positive comments posted on this web site?

All you dissenters need to

All you dissenters need to develop some patience. It takes a coach a few years to develop a good program. Give Tubberville a break and let him do what he does best, build football programs. My opinion but I think it's valid.

Thrash is About Right

Tubs will be back. It makes sense. We learned on November 6 that abject failure should always be rewarded. How about a new five year deal? Wait a minute--make it four. That seems to be the going number.

Yes!

Stop bejng whiners. Remember everything up until now has been Mike Leach's fault. Lets give him at least another 20 years to win championships. To all the dissenters, he was just trying to get him off the field.

Respond to all in order

Kingsbury for Brown would be a good decision. Doege wasn't benched because the talent level/play of the offensive line was the problem. Don't feel sorry for Doege. He has a full scholarship to a fine university in the USA. No car bombs, mortars, or IED's when he leaves stadiums! Best change would be consistently better recruiting classes. Tubbs has 2 of his own. 2008 was (Remember Houston)'s 9th season. Never give up(english), I'll be back(austrian), run away & hide(french) It's all Bush's fault(kenyan) At least most facebook comments use their real name. If you can't own up to what you say, it's to be taken with a grain of salt. Patience is a virtue, and in short supply (I could use more myself). I like your sarcasm, but comparing coach to uninformed freeloaders and a socialist/communist leader doesn't make any sense. Et tu, Brutus!? Never heard Tubbs blame (Remember Houston!)

Feel sorry for the Red Raider Radio guys

Baylor 88, Typical Chokers Tech 0

Has The Birther been fired yet? Hance?

Red Raider play by play with sound engineer peon Steve Pitdullard has to be the worst job in history.

Imagine, the best teams in Texas Tech's athletic dept right now are girls volleyball, girls softball, girls soccer. Geez.

RaiderPower.com Hancers still at it banning people for saying The Birther is an awful coach and not realizing Robmehood was the worst candidate in presidential political history.

Yesterday was the worst day in Texas Tech football history. We are officially back in the Jerry Moore Era. Birther Ball

This lazy team couldn't beat Wayland Baptist.

Man, did you go to Tech? Go to a political website. If Hance was active in today's political scene he'd be a Democrat so get off your computer and go play in your sandbox.

Now back to Tech football. I would love to see Tech offer big school money to Art Briles. He needs to move soon anyway because the NCAA can't be far from figuring out Baylor's money trails.

Losing still sucks

So??? Kliff? fire brown. HC in waiting or get Sonny while we still can. I seriously don't understand why every TTU fan wants to play lil bro to UT and do what they do? For all the talent they have they suck. We follow in their footsteps and have a crap CEO head coach and pay him waaaay to much for little direction. Hire a great coach.... Pay them to coach.... Not recruit.....not Bs....not fundraise and wear a tie....coach.

PLAYERS

I live in Shawnee, Oklahoma bout 40 miles from Owen Field I got used to the fact I have a Double T on my truck , proudly displayed, fly the Red Raider flag under the American flag every day, Every other year my truck would get egged or near miss. Hell this year I had eggs ready to hand out as a victory dance, the talent this team has had all year and the coaching staff can't figure out how to beat a team especially at home. It is and out cry, I will never lower my standards and give up on the Red Raiders how ever the words of our new A D to the ex basketball and baseball coach during termination. " We have a long proud tradition bla bla and bla and winning was somewhere in that final conversation should be Highly considered a topic of conversation to the current head and O coach of this football staff. Come on 3rd and 15 RUN to what our RED RAIDER football players deserve a lot more than what we have now.
