    Tech's running back out for season

    Per Blair Blair Kerkhoff
    BlairKerkhoff Blair Kerkhoff
    Tough break for Texas Tech: RB Eric Stephens out for season (knee). Big 12's second leading rusher at 114 ypg, 8 TDs
    Obviously this sucks for Stephens and luckily for him he's a junior so he'll get the chance to come back next year.

    However, from a pragmatic standpoint this just makes the game this weekend all the more important, as Tech becomes even more of a winnable game with one of the top rushers in the conference gone from their lineup. With Kansas as a likely win and Tech losing a team leader, getting the win on Saturday is huge for us to go bowling.

    I know the coaches and players can't say it in interviews. But this really is a must win game if we are going to have a decent season.

    Hate to celebrate an injury, but, frankly, we need every break we can get at this point.

    Unfortunately there are no "likely" wins on our schedule.

    Dirty hit, but I doubt he meant to injure him.

    Outside of Baylor our run defense has actually been pretty solid. If it wasn't, we would have gotten beat by Iowa and probably UCONN. Against Baylor, we were willing to let them run the ball. That was pretty obvious.


    It's all snark from here on out

    I don't even know that it was dirty. He was wrapping up which makes me believe he was just trying to make a tackle. Of course, if that was James White I would probably call it cheap.

    Agreed. The slow motion replay makes it looks bad, but in reality if the RB catches that ball he's not turned toward the sideline like that and it's just a standard tackle/wrap-up around the waist and legs.

    Yeah, looks like it was an unlucky planted foot. If his left foot hadn't stuck into the turf there would have been no injury at all.

    The only thing that scares me is when a star player goes down there is always that guy just waiting to get his chance and he seems to go all out to get noticed. I hope that is not the case but i've seen it a million times at PSU. Anyway we will still win
