Texas Tech Red Raider Notes for 07-16-07

DTN News:

Just 7 more weeks until football starts, right? I keep thinking that I can do these 7 weeks standing on my head, but I'm beginning to wonder if I can make it. Despite my worries, we must carry onward.

I promise to start working on the list of the top 10 most indispensable players for our Texas Tech Red Raiders. Indispensable being the players Texas Tech can ill-afford to live without. I think for most Tech fans, the list begins with Graham Harrell, but I still think it would be fun to go through with the process. I'll start those this week.

Also coming up are the following: one more Texas Tech Football Season in Review - the 1995 season; Texas Tech Red Raider Roundtable with Disco Tech! next week where I ask all of the tough questions (I have to send them first); 5 players of interest from the remaining opposing teams.

Texas Tech Football:

The Columbia Tribune's Dave Matters ranks the best units in the Big 12 and the Texas Tech Red Raider secondary ranks as the 11th best unit in the Big 12, with the idea of course that such a ranking is completely subjective and difficult to compare one unit to the next. Matters also ranks the Texas Tech backfield as one to mention and how could you go wrong with Graham Harrell and Shannon Woods. Nevertheless, good fun. (Hat-Tip to The Wizard of Odds).

K-State Sports and Beyond have finally gotten around to recognizing the Texas Tech fanbase. K-State's previewed a big part of the Big XII so go have a looksy.

Although I'm sure most of you have already seen this (I actually saw this as I woke up Saturday morning to this front page news in Tulsa) that OSU wide receiver Artrell Woods suffered a very serious back injury while lifting weights on Friday morning. Woods should go home later this week. Pretty scary stuff, but it sounds like he's going to be fine.

Former Texas Tech, Billy Joe Tolliver, quarterback finished 4th in the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship at Lake Tahoe, shooting a 65 (Stableford scoring system).
