Our Leader.

Our Texas Tech Red Raiders go 2-0 on January 1, 2008 with the football team coming back in dramatic fashion, again, to beat the Virginia Cavaliers 31-28 and then the men's basketball team defeated the vaunted Lamar Cardinals, 79-77. According to LAJ's Don Williams, Rylan Reed broke his ankle (link not live), not a torn ACL as kayakyakr surmised earlier today, and is flying back with the team. I'm glad to hear he's doing well.

Graham Harrell never gave in, and it seemed like he never got rattled.

I'm pretty sure that he's got steel ones.

They play to win.

I'll be here in the morning with DTN's daily notes, but I'm going to the Dallas Mavericks v. Golden State Warriors game tomorrow night so it may not be until Thursday evening until we start looking closely at today's games.

For now, let me know who was your offensive MVP and your defensive MVP for the Gator Bowl. For me, give me Harrell on offense because he delivered when he had to and Rajon Henley for causing that fumble that led to the 8 yard Crawford touchdown to tie the game 28-28.
