For the first time since 1997, Texas Tech beat Texas in Austin last night in a 48-45 thriller. The Red Raiders sealed the deal with this rather clever bit of misdirection and running by Jakeem Grant, who has a history of spectacular runs. Coach Kliff Kingsbury said last night that the play is called “Little People,…
Texas Tech is currently up 17-0 on the undefeated Oklahoma State Cowboys, thanks to this ankle-breaking clinic from Jakeem Grant.
Every college football play should start like this.
Trevone Boykin found Aaron Green off a ricochet to help the third-ranked TCU Horned Frogs beat Texas Tech 55-52 in the sort of manic game Red Raiders fans have seen in Lubbock for about a decade now. The fourth down play with less than a minute left came and the end of a 53-yard, two-and-a-half minute drive. But Texas…
It has not been a good year for Arkansas football and Bret Bielema. The Razorbacks came into the season ranked #18, but have since wilted. Bielema made fun of Ohio State for having an easy schedule, then his team went and lost to Toledo, the type of opponent he had just dismissed.
This is some kind of Shaft routine starring Texas Tech head coach Tubby Smith riding a motorcycle. Much like the average Red Raiders basketball performance, it features a laying-down.
Video has surfaced of a brawl that went down before Saturday's football game between Texas Tech and UTEP. This is a mother brawl. It's a brawl that spawns other brawls, and several people are knocked out in the process. It's a mess.
Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury, the man who has gone to great lengths to craft a "James Bond coaches football" image for himself, showed up at Big 12 media days sporting a very expensive-looking watch. People on Twitter were taken aback by the watch, a Breitling Mulliner Tourbillon model that retails for over…
Nigel Bethel II was dismissed from the Texas Tech football team on June 29, a day after a scuffle with women's hoops leading scorer Amber Battle in a rec-center basketball game. Now he's been cleared of charges, and after viewing surveillance video that shows Battle punching Bethel first, the grand jury took the…
Incoming freshman cornerback Nigel Bethel II was dismissed from the Texas Tech football team yesterday, a day after punching Amber Battle, the Lady Raiders basketball team's leading scorer, in the face during a pickup game. Rec center hoops are serious fucking business.
In the overnight hours after Marcus Smart shoved a fan in Lubbock at the end of Saturday's Oklahoma State-Texas Tech game, speculation ran wild about what might have provoked the Cowboys superstar guard to react in such a way. By morning, the narrative had been forged: Red Raiders superfan Jeff Orr told Smart to "go…
One of college basketball's top players is in hot water after shoving a Texas Tech superfan late in Oklahoma State's loss to Texas Tech in Lubbock.
We don't cover Gusgasms much these days, and we've sort of come around to editor emeritus's viewpoint about Fox's top college announcer. But when Gus Johnson goes overboard, we have an obligation to highlight it.
The year was 2007. It was a simpler time. Dan Beebe was in his first season as Big 12 Commissioner, and Mike Leach was still at Texas Tech, probably not even having met redshirt freshman Adam James. But he was already a crazy person.
Girl, don't sweat it. We've all been there. Sports make all of us lose our cool from time to time. Just try to remember what your mom, Judy, told you when she dropped you off at the dorms last week. Be safe, honey. And be nice!
Kliff Kingsbury continues to be the swaggiest swag bro to ever coach Division I college football. When he's not swaggin' all around the practice field with his players, he's leaving them cheeky notes with valuable fitness tips. Also, hashtags.
Workout schedules for college football players can be complex, what with varying needs for strength/fitness/flexibility based on position and those ever-complicated NCAA limits on supervised activities. One thing's clear for Texas Tech players, though: video games don't count as "being active."
