The Morning Stake | 2022.10.11

Slow news day.


If this doesn’t get the blood flowing, I don’t know what will.


I don’t think that a link is necessary to confirm that the next game, October 22nd, against West Virginia is set for a 2:00 p.m. kickoff and the game will, unfortunately, be on FS1 or FS2. I’m pretty sure I don’t get FS2 so not sure what I’ll do there, but I’ll figure it out the closer I get to the game.

Also of note is that the home game against Baylor on October 29th is sold out, so that’s terrific.

The Dallas Morning News “best in Texas” poll has Texas Tech dropping to 5th behind TAMU with TCU, Texas, Baylor, Aggie, and then Texas Tech as the order.

Dallas Morning News’ Ryan Mainville has 5 takeaways from the Texas Tech and Oklahoma State game with his take on the quarterback situation:

Donovan Smith had started the previous four games for the Red Raiders, but Texas Tech made a change at quarterback for this one. The Redshirt freshman Morton made his first career start with a tall task, having to play against the No. 7 team in the country in a sold out road environment. Despite the unfavorable conditions, Morton didn’t seem phased. The quarterback put in a considerable amount of work in the first half, throwing the ball 38 times. Even as he seemed to deal with a nagging leg injury in the second half, he finished the contest completing 39-of-62 passes. He had 379 yards and two touchdowns. Even though the Red Raiders didn’t pick up a win, Morton put together an impressive and confidence boosting performance. Texas Tech has a decision to make at quarterback.

Red Raider Sports’ Justin Apodaca has the midterm reports for each position group. Good for discussion for sure, the lowest rated position group is the offensive line and the best is defensive line.
