The Art of Polls: Aftermath


Long live the MAC! What a strange season it's been, and what a strange set up upsets in the bowl season. To put this together, I ranked everyone with 9 wins and then I put them in order according...

The Art of Polls: End-Season


Was pretty simple to put together this poll: If you have 9 wins, you get ranked. Less than 9 wins, you don't. Conveniently, there were 26 schools with 9 wins, and I refuse to re-rank Utah, so those...


Alamo Bowl - Ticket Selling thread

Dunno how you do this over on the OSU side, but we usually have one of these pop up on DTN, figured I'd start it up. I have 4 tickets, 2nd row, endzone. Sat there last year and they're very fun...

The Art of Polls: Week 11


Sorry this is coming late. Just as early season polling is hard, so is late season. I mean, we all know who the top 4 are and we all know who belongs in the top 15, but then you have another 20 or...

The Art of Polls: Week 9


Not much explanation today. Auburn gets the benefit of the doubt this week, hopping up to #2. Oregon is still my far and away #1 team. Note: Virginia should be Virginia Tech, just a little data...

The Art of Polls: Week 8


Not too much commentary today, because I think most of the poll explains itself. Usually, if you have a better record, you're ranked higher, and if you beat another team near you in the polls,...

The Art of Polls: Week 7


This polling thing just gets harder every week. It was a real struggle to find 25 teams that I wanted to rank, so Mississippi State gets the "thanks for beating Florida" nod here.  Otherwise, you...

The Art of Polls: Week 6


SEC voting block! With Alabama's loss, it gives me an excuse to throw everything into disarray. So while I started with a Big XII block, I now have an SEC block. Transitive property rules here,...

Taking a look at the Good and Bad of Texas Tech's saturday win over the Baylor Bears.

The Art of Polls: Week 5


I'm not at all happy with this week's poll. Not at all. That said, there's not a whole lot of movement. Those who jumped had either good wins or the benefit of my not really caring where I had them...

Good News/Bad News


A look at the good and bad of Texas Tech's loss to Iowa State. Not that there was too much Good.

The Art of Polls: Week 4


This week, Stanford makes a meteoric rise (again due to me not looking up where I had them last week) and I have now run out of rank-able undefeated teams (as I am not ranking USC this year nor the...

Good News and Bad News about TTU's loss to UT

The Art of Polls: Week 3


Just to reiterate my voting strategy, which I've been following since week 1, I'm voting only for undefeated teams, right now, until I don't have undefeated teams to vote for. My top 4 1-loss teams...


Some housekeeping

The Art of Polls: Week 2


So, this week's poll is much more "what have you done for me" than the previous polls. The Big XII block moves up at the expense of Auburn and Utah and some separation occurs: OU's win against FSU...

Good News/Bad News


Taking a look at the good and bad of the red raiders win over UNM.

The Art of Polls: Week 1


Approach I'll admit, this week left the situation no clearer, when it comes to putting together a poll. The top 2 stay the same based on preseason hype and how they finished last year. Oregon had...

Poll: Name of new pregame player walk.

These are the top 3 vote getters for suggestions for the name of Coach Tuberville's new pregame activity as seen here: fanpost I am probably going to take all of these back to Chris Level at the...

Texas Tech defeats Baylor 20-13


Postgame Thread DTN

Texas Tech vs. Baylor. 2nd half thread.


Ugly first half. Nick didn't get off the bus. Taylor Potts is wearing the wrong jersey. Defense is playing fairly well.

Texas Tech falls to Oklahoma State while the basketball team beats A&M Corpus Christi


Welcome to your postgame thread. Have a wicked hit:   What a frustrating game. that's all I have to say now.

2010 Texas v. Texas Tech game moved again.


Texas Tech will play Texas on Sept 18th, 2010. This shuffle has led to the shuffling of the Houston game to Nov 27th and the TCU game right out of 2010. We will play Weber State on Nov 20th in their stead.

Texas Tech uses late defense and rushing to defeat Kansas 42 - 21


Baron Batch takes over the game to close it out, good rebound after Texas A&M and a good game going into our bye week. Game gifs here: gifs Post comments here.
