Big 12 Football Countdown: No. 7 Texas Tech


"The guys who called the plays for the Raiders versus Minnesota down in Houston is co offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie like Kingsbury he is a former MikeLeach QB. You mentioned regression in the passing game because a new QB is on the field probably true but only from a total yards and TD vs INT's ranking or perspective the guys most likely to seperate in the fall camp is Michael Brewer who is a three year on campus guy with good feet. "

Tech Linebackers upbeat tone from the AJ


Best spring: Awe, Eguavoen and Smith all had their moments, but Eguavoen grasped concepts quickly and showed playmaking potential. "He started playing very well and being very productive when we blitzed him and making a lot of plays," defensive coordinator Matt Wallerstedt said. "He kind of emerged. He could end up starting like he did two years ago."

Charris - Ride Together Blog - launches his pre season Raider Assesment


Many believe that these coaches can "will" us to 8+ victories this season, but I always been preaching that at the end of the day, it is the players who need to have the accountability and dependability. A coaching staff can only do so much.

NEW CFN Preview 2013 - Texas Tech Red Raiders


The season will be a success if … the Red Raiders win eight games again. It’s going to be a struggle to get by Oklahoma and Texas – especially on the road – and Oklahoma State, Kansas State and TCU will be tough outs, but with so many winnable games against teams like Stephen F. Austin and Texas State, six regular season wins and a bowl game should be a given, but in Kingsbury’s first year, as long as the program is as least as strong as it was last year, the transition will be complete and the expectations will be ramped up next year.

Who Wins The Big 12? Texas Tech by


Now, technically, we move into the upper half of the league and this first team is a surprise for some. Texas Tech is picked by most summer preseason publications to finish in the bottom half of the conference.

Big 12 Football 2013 Predictions by Athlon Sports


"With Kliff Kingsbury returning to Lubbock, Texas Tech could be the Big 12’s most-interesting team in 2013. If quarterback Michael Brewer picks up where Seth Doege left off, the Red Raiders should have one of the league’s top offenses once again."

Texas Tech Red Raiders: Michael Brewer Is Key To 2013 Success


With a first-year head coach and a young coaching staff, Brewer will need to be a strong leader for the Red Raiders during the 2013 season. His first game is against the Southern Methodist Mustangs on Friday, August 30 at 8:00p.m. and will be nationally televised on ESPN.

Big 12 Football | Post Spring Assessment | Texas Tech Red Raiders


Our friends @ Crimson and Cream Machine have this to say "Kingsbury knows a thing or two about the quarterback position and his track record proves it. While there was officially an open competition during spring ball it appears as if its Brewer's job to lose. "

Chuck Carlton's Big 12 football preview: Slew of new quarterbacks will be front and (under) center


Tech may or may not win, but its coach will look good With a new quarterback, a new system and holes to fill, six to seven wins and a bowl might be nice debut for Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury



Per the Ubbinator..A spring miracle in Lubbock. Injuries have just been a constant for the last few years. Every spring and fall, it's been surgery after surgery, injury after injury. Not this year.

CFN 2013 First Look Rankings for the Big12 the bottom half that is..


Its really early for predictions but.."How much fun will the Kliff Kingsbury era be? The fan base is charged up to have one of its heroes at the helm – the faithful never really took to Tommy Tuberville – and the team has enough pieces in place to be better, especially on defense."

Season report card: Texas Tech Red Raiders by ESPN's Ubben


Texas Tech's offense goes as its quarterback goes. Seth Doege filled up the stat sheet this season, but his 16 interceptions were the most in the Big 12. The team raced out to a 6-1 start and 3-1 in Big 12 play, but the offense's inconsistency held the team back during its late-season slide.

College FootBall News predicts the outcome of the Meineke Car Care Bowl


Texas Tech will win if … it can make this a shootout. Minnesota doesn’t have the personnel to keep up in any sort of a firefight with a passing game that’s averaging just 171 yards per game and isn’t getting anything moving down the field. Yes, the Gophers are 11th in the nation in pass defense, but that’s because they haven’t faced anyone who throws the ball since dealing with Syracuse in mid-September.

CFN prognostication for Week 12 - Texas Tech at Oklahoma State


"Can Texas Tech get to 41 points? The offense is 18th in the nation in scoring averaging 39 points per game scoring 41 or more six times on the season – all wins. Oklahoma State has allowed 41 points or more three times and lost all three games, and won the six times it didn’t."

Texas Tech at Kansas State by CFN


"Here’s The Deal: Welcome to the spotlight, Kansas State.. While it seems like the Big 12 has been around forever, Texas Tech and Kansas State, former members of the Southwest Conference and Big 8, respectively, have only played each other 12 times with the first matchup coming in 1933, when KSU was in the Big 6 and Tech was in the Border Conference. Last year, the Wildcats won a 41-34 thriller, but the Red Raiders won the previous five games, mostly in wild blowouts. If this is a double-digit win on either side, this year, it’s going to be a really big deal."

TCU offense responds to Patterson's challenge


"One of the biggest keys for TCU's win at Baylor was the ability to sustain long drives. Much of that credit goes to the offensive line and running backs B.J. Catalon and Aundre Dean, who led the Frogs to 248 yards on the ground, their best day rushing since the opener against Grambling State. Matthew Tucker, who is nursing an ankle injury, only rushed four times for 21 yards, all in the first half. Patterson said the offense went with Catalon and Dean more in the second half because they were running better, not because Tucker's injury was hindering his ability." Read more here:

Dismissed Tech linebacker reinstated to team


"Cobb was arrested Aug. 19 on suspicion of felony burglary of a habitation, but Tuberville said Monday the Lubbock County Criminal District Attorney's office brought no charges against him. He rejoined the team Sunday. "He's been cleared by the district attorney. No wrongdoing whatsoever," Tuberville said. "

Week 7 Predictions by CFN - West Virginia at Texas Tech


"Texas Tech has been solid in a bounceback season, at least so far, but the offense didn’t do enough against Oklahoma and the defense couldn’t hold up in a 41-20 loss. With four of the last six games on the road – and with Kansas State, Texas and Oklahoma State still to deal with – the Red Raiders need to come up with the home win and need to come through with the biggest win under Tommy Tuberville since the shocker over the Sooners last season."

Big 12 Upset Alert: Week 6 - Tech vs OU


Per the Ubbinator "You think Texas Tech's resume is light on accomplishments? Uh, take a look at Oklahoma. Granted, the Sooners have played just three games and sat through a pair of bye weeks, but the Sooners' best win of the season is a 17-point struggle on the road at UTEP. "

CFN review of the Cyclones Game


"Ernst Brun caught the ball near midfield, but the ball popped out after he was drilled by D.J. Johnson. Cornelius Douglas brought the ball back to Iowa State's 9-yard line, and after a holding penalty, Doege found Ward for the score."

CFN:Week 5 – Texas Tech at Iowa State a prognostication


"Here’s The Deal: There’s little margin for error in the Big 12, and for these two unbeatens, it’s a must win to realistically be alive in the title chase. Is Texas Tech the real deal? It’s hard to tell after blowing away Northwestern State, Texas State and New Mexico. The offense has been the Texas Tech offense, and the defense leads the nation in yards allowed and pass defense, but again, Northwestern State, Texas State and New Mexico."

At A Cross-Rhoads: Will 2012 Be Different?


"We all know how the rest of that season went, though, and that brings us to this week. Texas Tech is also trying to flip the script from 2011. At 5-2 and coming off a shocking upset of Oklahoma, the Red Raiders were enjoying a promising season. Then the Cyclones came to Lubbock and butt trounced those bastards and Tech never recovered, finishing 5-7."

Texas Tech hot in blowout over Texas State by CFN


"Facing a Big 12 school on home turf for the first time, the Bobcats (1-1) fell behind 28-0 and didn't score until starting quarterback Shaun Rutherford was pulled and backup Tyler Arndt threw a 25-yard TD pass to Terrence Franks with less than 11 minutes left in the first half."

Looking at the Week One Spreads in the Big 12 by the Turfburner - Jay Beck


Northwestern State @ Texas Tech "Let's hope Northwestern State isn't looking past Texas Tech to their game with Arkansas-Monticello the following week. Wait, never mind."

Coach Fran's Bobcats: New season, new level, new league, high hopes


"Just don't misconstrue that assessment and think Fran believes his team could stay on the field with the Crimson Tide or the Aggies. But know that he's cautiously optimistic about Texas State's prospects as it prepares for an inaugural Division I Football Bowl Subdivision season in the program's 108-year history."

The CFN Preview of the Big12


"Team That'll Surprise Texas Tech – It’s all about the consistency. The offense will be the Texas Tech offense, and it should be better with veteran Seth Doege leading the way, but it has to work on a regular basis after going into the tank over the second half of last year. Nothing is a given considering the struggles, but if all goes according to plan, Tech should be able to start out 3-0 against Northwestern State, Texas State and New Mexico before getting a week off to prepare for Iowa State."
