Congratulations Texas Techl

The Texas Tech Red Raiders had a great year. They beat Texas in the last play of the game. They got whipped by Oklahoma.

Overall, it was a great year for the team from Lubbock.

It was also a great year for Dallas Carter High School standout
Michael Crabtree. He looks like a high NFL draft choice.

Today, the # 7 Red Raiders were upset by # 25 Ol' Miss Rebels. (What great names: Red Raiders vs Rebels!)

The Rebels gave the Red Raiders a taste of their medicine.

Nevertheless, we remember what Texas Tech did last season.

QB Graham Harrell and The Red Raiders were a scoring machine that averaged over 500 yards a game.

Harrell completed 406 of 568 attempts for an unbelievable 71.5%

He threw for 4747 yards and 41 TDs.

Harrell did it in 12 games! That's 470 passing yards per game, according to my calculator!

They scored, they scored and they scored. Unfortunately, they didn't their bring their best game to The Cotton Bowl in Dallas.

P.S. This is the last year for The Cotton Bowl in Dallas. It was started in 1937:
"Promoter J. Curtis Sanford began the whole thing during the Great Depression.

His widow, Mrs. Betty Sanford, will bring a sense of closure to the final AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic in Dallas when she participates in the coin flip before Texas Tech meets Ole Miss.

In between, the game has seen national champions crowned, Heisman winners receive final curtain calls and players leap from the sideline into history.

For the last time, the Cotton Bowl stadium will host the game that carries its name.

For the last time, bowl officials will nervously scrutinize weather reports for ice, wind or wild temperature fluctuations before the move to the Cowboys' new stadium in Arlington."
