Notre Dame will play TCU for the national championship. Go ahead and laugh. Then, this New Year, remember where you saw it predicted.
I like your thinking anon 3:52!
Have kids at Tech and I love the sign! On 19th! Guns Up!
As a west Texas dude and a longtime Red Raider fan, I have loved seeing the Red raiders beat some of the top teams every once in a while. It's really hard when you're in the same state as Texas and A&M, who own the state legislature and get about 100 times the amount of funding that Tech does. That having been said, I was also a Phillip Daugherty fan, and looked forward to seeing one of the best QBs in high school history running the Raider Nation. However, he was robbed of his opportunity by everyone's Golden Boy Graham Harrell. When harrell was at Ennis, everytime he wiped his tail the Startlegram did a feature on him - the same year Phillip became the SECOND HIGHEST YARDAGE PASSER FOR A SEASON IN HIGH SCHOOL HISTORY.And for those who forgot, the guy ahead of him at that time had just 22 more yards - and played in one more game than Phillip.
No, A&M and Texas don't get 100 times more funding because they own the state legislature. Tech gets a part of the Permanent University Fund, just like all colleges in Texas. By law, the legislature can't favor one state university over another to that extent. The difference is not in state funding. The difference is the endowments given by alums of A&M and Texas.
Anon that loved PD. As an expert on Texas Tech football, PD was never going to see playing time. He had his chances but he had a problem with throwing the ball to the defense. D-1 ball is quite a bit faster than the Paradise JV. Graham is having quite a battle of his own right now. Chris Todd is really pushing him and has the better arm. Really too bad, but I betcha PD lights it up at directional state this year.Anon 8:31, You are flat wrong. schools like Texas Tech and the University of Houston are prohibited by law to recieve money from the PUF endowment. I dont know where you got your facts but I can direct you here to start your research. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permanent_University_FundThe difference in alumni endowments is huge, but Texas Tech alumns have made significant contributions over the last 15 years. Mainly from the fact that Techsans take care of their own. As a result, Tech is probably more resourceful and efficient at running its business. Most of our alumns wouldn't recognize the place because of the building and improvements. Oh yes, and we have one hell of a Baketball coach and Mike Leach is a genius.
