Back when Mike Leach was calling the shots in Lubbock, the Texas Tech game scared me every year. Once the Tech administration fired Leach, my fear of the Red Raiders dissipated considerably.
Today? Today, I'm scared. I am genuinely mortified that Tech is going to punch through the wet paper bag that is the Texas defense and hang a sixty burger on my alma mater. The silver lining is that the game is not until 2:30 p.m. CDT (ABC/ESPN2), so I can have a productive and happy morning before settling in to face an afternoon and evening of possible ruination.
Then again, the Horns did beat Kansas in Lawrence last weekend, so maybe they've turned it all around!

This is your thread to discuss Texas-Texas Tech, as well as Texas A&M-Mississippi State (11 a.m. CDT), Oregon-USC (6 p.m. CDT), Oklahoma State-Kansas State (7 p.m. CDT), Alabama-LSU (7 p.m. CDT), or any other college game that catches your fancy. Enjoy.
