    Texas Tech

    Although this game should be a win, but is it just me or does it seem like SOMEONE on the opposing team always goes off and has the game of their career against the Cyclones? Below .500 record or not, and with it being on the road, I'm still worried because this ALWAYS seems to happen.

    Thoughts?

    I've always wondered why people have career games against us.

    Re: Texas Tech

    Not to shoot you down, but that is the perception of pretty much every fan base.

    I attached the player impact ratings from the preview on my site...they rely on Tolbert, the freshman to score quite a bit. While they are 0-5 in B12 play the've only played 2 home games and those were against Baylor and Kansas.

    They hung tough with Baylor for a half. I don't think they're quite as bad as their record even if they struggle to score.

    These guys really arent that bad, and seem to play some really good D at times. We have to bring it on D.

    They play hard and will be very well coached. They have some offensive limitations but we better show up or we can definitely get beat. They are very hungry for a win.

    I just want to get out of there with a victory, whether its by 1 or 30.

    My worries will be gone once Babb finds his shot - which I can only hope is waiting for him in Lubbock...

    Re: Texas Tech

    I agree with the post saying its every fanbase' perception that guys have career games against them. I was thinking about this very question the other day. I think that a good reason for this happening is because defenses are designed to stop the strength of the opponent....take away a strength, and it gives opportunities to a perceived weaker player to have his day in the sun.

    Seemed like someone always had a career night against us in the GMAC years. It was ridiculous.

    Re: Texas Tech

    What has been wrong with Babb the last three games, I realize part of his focus has been to become one of our premier defenders, but lately what was one of our top scorers has become minimal at best

    He went through it earlier as well. He's a streak shooter, not a great shooter. He does spend a lot of energy on defense.

    Re: Texas Tech

    Is Mike Singletary still on the team? Dude lit us for 30 something in Ames last year.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    One thing Royce White said post game on Wednesday, there is no BAD team in this conference. There are teams that have struggled more than others. We have to bring it every night, home and away.
