When I went to sleep last night, the video from yesterday’s press conference was just the first 3:58 of the press conference, so this is as far as I got:
Just talked to Bryce Ramirez. could see the smile in his voice. Tough kid, he’s saying what’s next and tell ’em what’s next and to win the game. Teammates love him. Will be Wednesday or Thursday when he gets back to Lubbock. He said 24 hours is up, it’s Texas week.
Injury Report: Adrian Frye, maybe two weeks, quad contusion; Cam’Rom Valdez next week. Derrick Lewis is close. Questionable: Dimitri Moore has hamstring and Weston Wright should be back.
I don’t know Steve really well, have gotten to know him through Media Days, great reputation as a play-caller. Strength is what he can do with his skill players. One of the best play callers in the game. DeRuyter has some history with him, he has great things to say about him. Both running backs are special, they are physical. Have to tackle this week. Two good receivers, have a bit of history from Widdington, had a guy from Cuero.
As of this morning, the entire press conference is posted, but I don’t have time to do the non-transcript. To combat the lack of me being able to do a non-transcript, I’m linking some things, but obviously, you’ll need to click o over and read.
Lubbock Avalanche-Journal’s Don Williams had 10 things from yesterday’s press conference, including the following: 1) time frame for the return of Tyler Shough; 2) update on Bryce Ramirez; 3) honors for Tony Bradford (see below); 4) Steve Sarkisian on the Texas Tech crowd; 5) Joey McGuire pleading with the students not to throw bottles; 6) returning kickoffs; 7) McGuire on horns down; 8) an anonymous $10 million donor for the stadium renovation; 9) injury update (see above); and 10) Kansas State and Texas Tech will be at 11:00 a.m.
Dallas Morning News’ Ryan Mainville on the outstanding start of the defense thus far this year.
Tony Bradford is one of 11 student-athletes to be named to the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team:
“To say we are proud of Tony might be an understatement,” head coach Joey McGuire said. “Tony is not only a great teammate but is a great leader who is able to inspire others towards a common mission. Texas Tech and West Texas are better because of Tony Bradford and the tireless effort he has made to make this community better for generations to come.”
Bryce Ramirez updates in tweets.
Update I had a successful second surgery now on to the road to recovery! Once again thanks for all the love and support from Raider Nation. I also want to thank Wolf Pack Nation as well for treating me like one of their own. The support has been unbelievable! Love you all ❤️.

Decided not to tweet this on Saturday night because we didn’t know the outcome for Texas Tech LB Bryce Ramirez.

I will be hard-pressed to convince any one of you to watch Blake Anderson and his story of loss, from his wife of cancer and his son’s suicide last year. Sometimes we need people to talk to and Anderson is correct in that there are people out there that want to carry your burden.
