This week features an early-edition college football open thread because my Texas Tech Red Raiders are facing off against the Texas Longhorns in Austin this Thanksgiving evening. It’s been seven years since the Raiders last beat the Horns on an epic catch by Michael Crabtree, arguably the signature win of the Mike Leach era: Preview Open

Due to the furor caused by the recent depredations committed in Gay Paree by the violent, insane adherents of the “Religion of Peace,” I got distracted and forgot to post my usual college football thread early this morning.  Here it is. In the Big Ten, the No. 3 Ohio State Buckeyes are leading the Illinois […]

What might well be this weekend’s biggest matchup is in the Atlantic Coast Conference, where the No. 16 Florida State Seminoles face a difficult game on the road against […]

Apologies for the delay in posting this week’s college football thread, but it’s been an unusually busy few days at the LaRoche estate in the Texas Hill Country. As it happens, my Texas Tech Red Raiders have already played today, defeating the Kansas Jayhawks 30-20 on the road in Lawrence.  It was a game filled […]

Well, I won’t mince words: last week sucked.  My Texas Tech Red Raiders lost a 55-52 heartbreaker at home in Lubbock to the TCU Horned Frogs, the final score coming on a luckily-tipped pass.  The officiating was lousy (though in retrospect, not determinative of the game’s final outcome), something that has become a hallmark of […]
