Game Day Links | Minnesota vs. Texas Tech

US PRESSWIRE

All of your game-day links as Texas Tech is set to face Minnesota in the Meineke Car Care Bowl.

Game day is finally here. I have the first game thread going up at 7:00 pm, the second going up at 9:30 pm and the final one going up at 11:00 pm. I hope to be drunk by 7:15 pm or so (Not really, I'm excited and will be relatively sober for the game. I want to enjoy this one.) The prediction thread goes up later this morning. Also, there is a men's basketball game at 6:00 pm and there will be a game day thread for that.

There is one non-football link today: Homepage changes to improve scanning and better highlight FanPosts and FanShots - Blog Huddle That's right, for those of you who wanted to see the homepage change, it's going to happen and the folks are listening to you. If you'd like to add to the conversation and voice your two cents, go to that link.

* Red Raiders faithful swoon as Kingsbury returns home - San Antonio Express-News | I'm guessing that you all didn't catch this, but I posted this link a couple of days ago and thought that these were some pretty strong words from Hocutt on Tuberville:

"Your word means something in West Texas," Hocutt said. "It's easy to say you are guided by a set of guiding principles and your word and handshake are as good as a contract. Not everybody can live up to that. But having somebody who wants to be here, who wants to be an integral part of the community, is important to us.

"Tommy Tuberville is a good man and a good coach and had a lot of success. ... Given the time in our history of where we are, Tommy going to Cincinnati was the best thing for Tommy Tuberville, and Tommy going to Cincinnati was the best thing for Texas Tech."
