The Morning Stake: October 24th




original-double-t LAJ’s Don Williams writes about how Texas Tech was entertaining, but still lost:

The resistance was next to nothing, which Kingsbury admitted.

“What I saw was them creating separation by being better players than us,” Kingsbury said.

During one stretch of nine possessions, Oklahoma cashed in seven touchdowns and a field goal. That included TDs six series in a row.

There are three ways to put an end to this cycle: Scrap the system, recruit better players to put in the system or, failing that, wait until you have an experienced bunch on defense with a lot of seniors, as happens from time to time.

original-double-t LAJ’s Nicholas Talbot writes that Texas Tech showed effort, but lacked defense on Saturday:

Now, I think we have those answers.

Yes, they will pull off another win.

It won’t be a 10-win season some fans dreamed of before the year began.

They may not even make a bowl game.

But, they could.

And after last week that’s a win — even if they couldn’t get the victory.

original-double-t Miscellaneous . . . LAJ’s Nicholas Talbot has a notebook after the game that deals with the play of the Texas Tech receivers, Baker Mayfield’s reaction to the chants and the lack of turnovers by the defense being one of the worst in FBS . . . I am woefully behind on one recruiting profiles and now I’m behind on news of another 2018 commitment in Paschal WR Jaylon Robinson (5-10/165) a 2018 4-star receiver and if there was a perfect game for him to attend, which he did, it was Saturday where those inside receivers were making plays after plays. I’ll try to have something up today (had to mow the lawn yesterday, hopefully for the last time this year) . . . LAJ’s Michael LaBarre recaps how the 2017 and 2018 commits played this past week . . .
