    Line for Texas Tech

    The just released line for this game is Texas Tech favored by 15.0. Any comments or thoughts on this.

    Re: Line for Texas Tech

    I was pretty confident against TT...

    Then I saw our offense sputter for three weeks in a row and watched TT beat OU in Norman.

    I'm really not sure what to make of either team so I'm not going to make any predictions this week. Just gonna sit back and watch as a fan.

    We're going to need a minimum of 42 points to win this one.

    Hoping for a "hangover" from TTU after the big OU victory. Maybe they'll lay an egg and Barnett will have some confidence after working with the 1st teamers all week. Hopefully.

    Re: Line for Texas Tech

    Either
    A) A Mizzou/Okla/OSU Type Beating (30+)
    B)A Baylor Type Beating (20-25 pts)
    C) An A&M Type Beating (14-21 pts)

    I am leaning towards B...

    It's a sad day when we refer to a "Baylor Type Beating" and take it to mean we will get beaten, not the other way around.

    Re: Line for Texas Tech

    Going all in on ISU to win: classic letdown game and sandwich game between OU and Texas. Plus look at their results this season:

    Sat, Sept 3



    1-0 (0-0)Sat, Sept 17



    2-0 (0-0)Sat, Sept 24



    3-0 (0-0)Sat, Oct 1



    4-0 (1-0)Sat, Oct 8



    4-1 (1-1)Sat, Oct 15



    4-2 (1-2)Sat, Oct 22



    5-2 (2-2)

    They struggled with the likes of KU, Nevada, and KSU. Also what is wrong with OU? They have played bad and disinterested the last two games.

    Re: Line for Texas Tech

    Looks like the least amount of points they have scored is 35........so we have relatively no chance. Will have to score more than 26 points in regulation.

    Kudos to Baylor for spending money on a great coach and bringing in major talent

    not sure what you mean when you say 'by the likes of KSU' considering they are undefeated and one of the best teams in the big 12.

    I know KSU is undefeated, but they have not miraculously gotten better than us over the course of a year. Their tough games Mizzou and Baylor have been at home and they beat Tech on the road.

    Re: Line for Texas Tech

    TT tends to have problems with teams pound away on the ground for four quarters. Their defense wears down gradually and the ball control offensive game plan keeps TTs very talented offense off the field. The key against TT is to not get into a position to have to play catch up.

    Re: Line for Texas Tech

    I think we go down and win. Barnett is starting, the receivers are going to get their crap together this week, and our D is going to continue to play well. Its our first game to score over 35 points in regulation. We hold the Pink Raiders to 31
