There's a new poll, predict the Texas A&M game outcome. The line was sitting at 8.5 last night so I bumped it up to 9. Last week, 50% of you correctly predicted that Texas Tech would beat ISU by 24 or more.
For my opinion on the Vick'Em t-shirt, just check out Bond J. Bond's post at Disco Tech!. I have a huge soft spot for dogs and it was a little over a year ago that I had to put my 2 year old labrador retriever to sleep because she had extreme kidney failure. Still a sad moment in my life. Thus, to me the Vick'Em t-shirt just isn't funny. I get that it's trying to be clever, but it's just not clever to me.
We're better than that.
Texas Tech Football:
DMN's Brian Davis does an excellent job of detailing the most recent history surrounding the Texas Tech/Texas A&M game. Former Texas A&M lineman had this to say about the series:
"Now, in the eyes of a lot of Tech fans, it's a big game. Whether A&M fans want to acknowledge it or not, it's a rivalry because they beat us."
LAJ's Don Williams has the latest on Coach Leach's broken arm. Here's coach Leach re-telling the story:
This is why I love Leach. He makes over $1.5 million (I think) and he's trying to hump it home on a bike with a flat tire, not to mention he's in Lubbock where he would probably be given the keys to the car of any stranger he asks. The other part I love is that the broken arm, or the story about the broken arm is a "nuisance":
That's right Coach, everything's a distraction other than the Aggies.
