If Christmas Movies Were About Texas Tech

Ranking the meaningful movies for Tech Football

5. A Christmas Carol

Because Texas Tech fans are always battling the Ghost of Red Raider Seasons Past. We don’t appreciate the Red Raider Season Present. And we need the Ghost of Red Raider Seasons yet to come to scare us straight.

4. Elf

Because sometimes Red Raider spirit is so low that the team and the recruits have a hard time getting excited about Texas Tech. And as we all know, the best way to spread Texas Tech cheer is singing the fight song for all to hear.

3. Polar Express

Because when it comes to a Texas Tech football season... it doesn’t matter where it’s going. What matters is deciding to get on board.

2. White Christmas


“We'll follow the young coach wherever he wants to go

Long as he wants to go opposite to the foe

We'll stay with the young coach wherever he wants to stay

Long as he stays away from the battle's fray

Because we love him, we love him

Especially when he keeps us on the ball

And we'll tell the kiddies we answered Hocutt’s call

With the grandest son of a coach of them all”

1. It’s a Wonderful Life

Because it can always be worse both on and off the field. We have a terrific young alum as our coach who represents Texas Tech in the best ways. No recruiting violations. No scandals. Just trying to win with a high character standard and a program still with a ton of potential. We are lucky to have what we have and we need to understand that being a Red Raider is truly part of a wonderful life.

Happy Holidays from all of us at VTM!
