Congratulations to Texas Tech

I guess you could say I put my foot in my mouth. Instead of giving reasons why Texas could have won the game or why they did not, I would like to tell you why I think Texas Tech won this game.

1. The offensive and defensive linemen of Texas Tech controlled the game for 3 1/2 quarters.

That is the main reason why I think Tech was able to win this game. Other notable was Crabtree making the catch at the end and getting in the endzone even when Texas had two players there to at least make the tackle. There is still alot of football to be played. I would be surprised to see two teams finish undefeated out of the top conferences. Texas just needs to win the rest of their games, and I believe they will win the Big XII and find themselves back in the top 2. Goodnight.

Upset in Lubbock... I don't think so

Tonight we will see that an 8-0 Texas team is alot better than 8-0 Texas Tech team. Here are some reasons why I think Texas will win.
1. Muschamp is an awesome defensive coordinator and will have something for Mike Leach's offense.
2. Orakpo will prove to be too fast for Ryan Reed. Who cares if he benches presses more than 600 lbs?
3. Graham Harrell (sp?) is a great qb, but is has been putting up top numbers for the past three years and they have still lost.
4. Colt on the otherhand is considerably better than he was last year win Texas beat Texas Tech. I think he will continue to show his leadership skills and lead Texas to a 4th straight win against a top 11 team.
5. Texas has proven they are a top team over the last three weeks. Tech's only win against a ranked team was last week against Kansas. Although impressive, it is not as impressive as Texas' last three wins.

I am sure there are several more reasons why, but these are a few of the notables. I will check back after the game. Enjoy!
