Oh no, O-line

Heading into the season, it was apparent the offensive line was the place where Texas Tech could least afford to suffer injuries due to the unit’s lack of depth and experience.

Heading into the Red Raiders’ final home game against Baylor, Tech may be hampered due to the losses of tackle LaAdrian Waddle and guard Alfredo Morales. Both were hurt in Tech’s loss to Oklahoma State on Saturday, and the offense suffered in their absence.

Give me Moore

Texas Tech senior wide receiver Darrin Moore has quietly put together a very productive season.

Moore, who missed much of his junior season due to injuries, caught nine passes for 140 yards and a touchdown on Saturday. He has shown a knack for getting into the end zone since arriving from Blinn College, catching 14 TD passes in his last 11 games.

Something in Stillwater

Texas Tech’s 59-21 loss to Oklahoma State on Saturday was its fifth straight inside Boone Pickens Stadium.

Tech’s numbers against OSU don’t get much prettier from there. The Red Raiders have lost their last four games against the Cowboys and have been outscored 125-27 in the last two contests. Tech’s seniors will end their career without a win against OSU to go along with their 0-fer against Texas.

Doege moves up

Seth Doege hardly put together his best performance of the season on Saturday. He threw two interceptions, and his 230 yards were the fewest he’s thrown since a 203-yard output in a loss to Oklahoma on Oct. 6.

But that total was enough to move Doege to third on the school’s all-time passing list behind Graham Harrell and Kliff Kingsbury. Doege (8,006 yards) is the third player in school history to eclipse the 8,000-yard career-passing mark.

Lot on the line

For all its struggles in the past month, Texas Tech still has the chance to finish the regular season 8-4 if it can beat Baylor in Arlington this weekend. That would likely mean a fifth-place finish for a team picked ninth to begin the season. The Red Raiders are also trying to move up the bowl pecking order, with the Buffalo Wild Wings and Holiday bowls appearing to be the likely options.

Baylor, meanwhile, can become bowl eligible with a win.

Do we have a pulse

All of this is just blather for a team that has not shown a pulse lately. I thought McDaniel looked OK at Left Tackle. He has played quite a bit there during his career. His game was far better than Waddle's who was crucified by OSU's end. Maybe it was part of the injury. But it began with the opening snap. Offensively we never adjusted and left the left tackle isolated all game. Oh well I guess we just can't block him. Keep smiling.

In 3 years we have gone from a team to be feared in November to one that is road kill. There are a lot of opinions as to what happened. Most of them are not supportive of our current coach.



Morales left the game when score was 35-7. They are all dinged up one way or another, it's November. That's every team, not just Tech.


more campaigning

The AJ continues its assault on our intelligence. Story line from now through off season, Tubs exceeded expectations, turned the D around and has amazing recruits waiting to take Tech to the next level.

If we beat a hungover Baylor and an uninspired bowl opponent, the AJ will sell, sell, sell the "success" to all those gullible enough to buy more BS from this Admin and its good ole boy investment fraud ponzi participant arrogant and dishonest coach. "I was pulling him off the field and missed his shoulder."

Strive for honor my butt.


five key things we learned from the OSU game

Tech has no offense. Tech has no defense. Tech cannot punt. Tuberville cannot coach. The weight trainer sucks.

Thank you Kent Hance.
