Your daily dose of all things Texas Tech athletics.


Jerry Maguire’s Mission Statement. This is probably going to make some of you feel old, but it’s almost been 20 years since Jerry Maguire was released, but remember Jerry’s mission statement. Here’s the entire thing.


Track & Field



Walk-Off Win Against Abilene Christian. Texas Tech walks-it off against Abilene Christian, 5-4 on a Hunter Hargrove RBI single in the 9th inning last night. Starter Erikson Lanning went 3.2 innings, allowing 5 hits, 3 runs, and striking out 5. The bullpen was pretty good, Ryan Moseley pitching 1.1 innings without a run, and Robert Dugger going 3 innings without a run, while Hayden Howard did allow a run in the 9th to allow ACU to tie the game, but he did end up with the win, moving to 7-2 on the year. Tyler Neslony was 2-4 with an RBI as was Hargvoe.


Clergeot On Board. RaiderPower’s Jarrett Johnson talked to Texas Tech signee PG Keon Clergeot and it sounds like he’s not wavering at all from his choice of Texas Tech, which is great for him and Texas Tech.

Ofoegbu to Visit Texas Tech. This is an interesting move as San Francisco forward Uche Ofoegbu is set to visit Texas Tech. Ofoegbu originally started and played at SMU his freshman year, transferred to San Francisoco and had to sit out a year and then played for the Dons last year. Ofoegbu averaged 9.2 points a game and 4.6 rebounds last year. Ogoegbu is originally from San Antonio and Uche’s older brother, John Ofoegbu played at Texas Tech during the Bob Knight Era, just one year, and then transferred to Idaho.


Stockton Q&A. ESPN’s Jake Trotter has a terrific Q&A with RB Justin Stockton. Here’s a bit:

What’s it like playing with Mahomes?

Stockton: It’s great. If you have a quarterback out there who knows what he’s doing and can see things nobody else can see until you turn on the film and you’re like, oh shoot, now I see why he saw that or audibled to that play. When he’s out there, it’s fun. It’ll look like the play is already over with and he’ll do something and get another 20 yards.

Texas Football On Fehoko. Texas Football’s Mike Craven is looking at the top 50 players i the state and has DT Breiden Fehoko at No. 46:

He wasn’t asked to be that disruptive force for Texas Tech as a true freshman. It speaks to his skillset that he could walk into a Big 12 program and immediately start as a true freshman, but he’ll need to be more disruptive in the backfield to help this defense.

Four Baylor Editorials. It’s obviously getting to a tipping point when four publications write editorials about Baylor. I think, the press is finally getting to the point where they’re not afraid to ask Briles some pretty tough questions.

  • Waco Tribune Editorial Board: EDITORIAL: Oakman allegations add to growing concerns about overall student welfare at Baylor — It’s good to see the local paper take a stand. This is a pretty strong stance for them. That’s progress.
  • DMN’s Sharon Grigsby: Baylor craved a national football reputation – instead it’s drowning in repeated mistakes
  • FWST’s Mac Engel: Baylor now has a sequel to its basketball scandal
  • FOX Sports’ Stewart Mandel: Something’s rotten at Baylor and it’s way past time to pay attention
