For any of our readers, I want to make this site a space where we can all talk together. Not just as fans of Texas Tech Athletics, but as people in our greater community. In the coming days or weeks, I imagine COVID-19 will spread to our secluded desert haven. I won’t predict to know when or how it will affect us, but I truly believe the more we lean on each other (well... not physically please) the better off we will be.
The plan will be to provide links and share information as it pertains to Texas Tech and the Lubbock community on this page. Feel free to use the comments section to share updates, talk, vent, or as a way to stay sane. We’ll be around, too.
Wreck’ Em forever .
