Big 12 Media Days was this week and Texas Tech was represented by Dakota Allen, Travis Bruffy, JaDeion High and JahShawn Johnson.

In the mailbag this week, we’re asked if Putin will interfere with the Big 12 race this season, and how OU is the face of Russian propaganda. We discuss what we’re most excited and scared about for the 2018 football season. Finally, most teams do not deviate more than 2 games +/- in terms of W/L record from season to season and we’re asked to project where we think Tech will land in that spectrum for 2018.
Michael takes us through his inital steps of cutting the cord and moving to a full streaming service instead of cable.
