I know that mentioning ESPN on here is not a good idea as of late. But in this case, the review they gave of our team this year is actually not that bad. Plus, ours and Colorado's are the only Blue Ribbon reviews that are free! There are some mistakes; but, if you read some of the comments, i'm pretty sure that they've all been pointed out already. Overall it's a fairly in-depth overview of our Offense, Defense, Special Teams, Newcomers, and an overall About and Analysis sections. I'd say it's worth the time it takes to read it.:
[Note by Seth C, 07/09/10 5:59 AM CDT ] I redacted quite a bit of the article because we're not supposed to copy and paste an entire article. That's bad internet mojo. Go here to read the rest, and as always, make sure that before you post, it hasn't been posted already in the FanPosts or FanShots (as this was already a FanShot). It would help me keep DTN nice and tidy.
It was one strange offseason in Lubbock.
Mike Leach put Tech on the national map with his record-breaking passing attack, his fourth-down decisions, his brash pre- and post-game commentary and his love affair with pirates.
He also won like crazy in Lubbock, and things hit a crescendo in 2008 when the Red Raiders upset No. 1 Texas in Lubbock and for a moment looked like they would play for a national championship.
Things fell apart last year as Leach was suspended for the Alamo Bowl because of controversy surrounding his alleged mistreatment of one his players, and he was fired on Dec. 30, 2009.
Enter former Ole Miss and Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville, who after a year away from coaching brings a different style to the High Plains. Tuberville is a more traditional coach who made his name in the Southeastern Conference, where running the ball and playing a physical game are the winning ticket. Tuberville has promised since he took the job that the Red Raiders' air attack will continue to be a big part of Texas Tech football.
