    Really like Kingsbury as a head coach for TTU. Wish we could have gotten him a few years back as OC. Go TTU!

    This is the game I've been waiting all year for (after ISU, my teams are Texas Tech and Arizona State), so definitely going for Tech. Also a big fan of Kingsbury.

    Granted the TD was due to 2 missed tackles, but this Tech offense looks scary. I don't see how we will be able to hang with them.

    Boykin can run, but he doesn't scare me that much. TCU D seems to be the real deal (other than that busted TD run) but their offense isn't anything too crazy.

    Why so many open seats in the endzone?

    He has been fun to follow. It was apparent even when he was in HS that he was gonna do big things. Love seeing a hometown boy do so well.

    Kingsbury and Texas Tech is a perfect fit. I think he's going to do well there...which I don't like saying as an ISU fan

    I think you're right. Despite Lubbock being a craphole, kids are gonna want to play for Kingsbury.

    I don't think there is a better comparison than this: Kingsbury is to Texas Tech as Hoiberg is to Iowa State.

    Neither of those coaches could've gotten a straight up head coaching job as that point in time except at those schools. They are perfect fits and it works for everyone. This scares me for ISU football...much like I am sure Hoiberg scares other Big 12 schools in basketball! :smile:

    What did I miss about TCU's Pachall. I watched part of their last game and he was starting QB

    Broken non throwing arm for Pachall. Not very impressed with TCU's offense to this point

    Tech may be a little frightening.

    Offense may confuse the crap out of our defense.

    On a side note, I think the extra ref is a plus, so far. Hope we are sharp enough on offense at some point to take advantage of the extra speed it allows.

    I'm not sure Mess is sharp enough to understand how to take advantage of it.
