It's time to get together and back our Red Raiders in the Alamo Bowl tonight!
-Yes it is a travesty what has happened
-Yes our AD let us down
-Yes Craig James and Baby James are whiney bitches
-But NO, no matter what people say or feel, this is not the end of good football in West Texas!
I may be standing out on a ledge here, but I think this could actually be a (forced) step in a better direction for our football program (if handled right from here on out). I mean from where I am sitting Mike Leach took us as far as any coach has taken us, and re-birthed our program into the national spotlight... But lets face facts, he never won a big one for us. So here is where we need to make a solid HC pick, one who HAS been tested, and HAS won the big game before. For all of Leach's strong points, they have always been his undoing as well, his stubbornness has cost us games this year, and in the past. I mean Leach's system was outstanding for building up our program, for years we were undersized and outmatched as far as talent goes, and Leach's spread leveled the playing field... But am I the only one who has looked at our talent the past few years and wondered what we could do with some of this talent if we just mixed up the play calling a little bit? As much as I LOVE the pass, Id also love to see us be able to square up against someone on the goal line and ram it down their throats.
Now before everyone gets mad at the thought of moving past Leach so fast, or thinking I'm not giving due credit, I just ask you to look at things like I have the past few days...
The things that Mike has done for us aren't just going to go away, the incredible athletic facilities arent going to disassemble themselves, the new buildings built from football bowl money aren't going to collapse... and the name we have created for ourselves isn't going away either.
I guess my main point is that whether or not we have some shitheads running things (right now)... Texas Tech has become a desirable job and with the right pick, all the tools are in place to do incredible things here (and yes I'm talking NCs).
With this being said we all need to band together and Support Texas Tech Football team. These players can't control who is in charge, and turning your backs on them because you are mad at the administration is like cutting off your nose to spite your face. These kids still work hard day in and day out (aside from Baby James) and DESERVE our respect and support even through these dark times.
Lets go out there today and kick some Spartan Ass
P.S. I know im hitting on several different points, and could have done better with several smaller posts... Its just I got sick (littereally) when this whole thing started and have nothing but time and thoughts in my head for days... I guess this is the result... lol
