The Morning Stake | 2019.02.04

Leading Off

Busy Week. It’s going to be a busy week. We’ve got Big Monday tonight as Texas Tech hosts West Virginia. Then on Wednesday, we have the second signing day where head coach Matt Wells will try to round out the 2019 class. I’ll have coverage of that on Wednesday and Thursday.

No Sign. You can check out the Lady Raiders’ Twitter account and there is no sign that the Baylor game happened. Just the tweet about TCU coming up on Wednesday. Let’s just say that Baylor, the #1 team in the nation, flexed and defeated the Lady Raiders 96-37.

Big Monday, Part II. For the second straight Monday, Texas Tech will be part of Big Monday tonight, facing off against West Virginia at 8:00 p.m. at the United Supermarkets Arena. A preview will be forthcoming later this morning and Kyle will have his weekly post as well.

Texas Tech Football

4 Commits Forthcoming. Yesterday, head coach Matt Wells tweeted “Wreck’Em x 4” which is the bat-signal for 4 commits to be happening relatively soon.

We got two of them, kicker Jonathan Garibay and running back Dadrion Taylor. Not sure when or who the other two will be, but it’s probably going to happen between now and Wednesday.

MVP. On Saturday, former Texas Tech footballer Patrick Mahomes was named the Offensive Player of the Year and also the Most Valuable Player of the NFL in his first full season as a starter. You can watch the video of Mahomes’ acceptance right here (although there’s a good chance this video will be taken down as it was posted by the NFL, so watch while you can).

Adrian. Cornerback Adrian Frye is the latest player to tweet out an official site highlight video.

Waddle Wins Another. Congrats to former Red Raider footballer LaAdrian Waddle for winning another Superbowl.
