Tim Tebow Has Bigger Fish to Fry

 

A little story… I moved to Tennessee when I was twelve days shy of 21 years old, and enrolled at Lee University at 22. I moved there mere months after UT won the national title, so the whole state was painted in orange…well, even more than normal at least.

I didn’t grow up a college football fan. If a game was on Saturdays, Dad and I would watch, but it wasn’t appointment TV. Appointment TV was the Chicago Bears…and the Boston Celtics when Bird was around, but that’s another story for another day. I said to myself that I wouldn’t get myself into this SEC religion. I’m not getting into this SEC religion. I was adamant about this.

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

Most of this week’s college football games will be played on Halloween, and more than a few should offer a good fright to viewers.  Out west, Mike Leach and the Washington State Cougars take on the visiting No. 8 Stanford Cardinal in what has become an unlikely battle for Pac-12 North supremacy.  Y’all know who […]

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 […]

Disaster.  That’s the only word that can adequately describe the results of Texas Tech’s 63-35 beatdown last week at the hands of Baylor.  This week, the Red Raiders are hoping for some redemption as they host the Iowa State Cyclones, traditionally one of the weaker teams in the Big 12 Conference.  But given Texas Tech’s […]

The fourth week of the college football season is now upon us, and at noon (Eastern) today on ABC is a fascinating matchup featuring the No. 22 BYU Cougars heading to Ann Arbor to face Jim Harbaugh and the Michigan Wolverines.  The Cougars are seeking to bounce back from last week’s heartbreaking loss on the road […]
