What Texas Tech Fans Are Saying About 42-30 Loss To Oklahoma

New, 4 comments

My travel schedule this past week prevented us from being able to hook up with the great folks over at Viva The Matadors but we thought that we'd at least check in to see what the conversation was like during the game.

Michael C. Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

Things started pretty well for the Red Raiders and for the most part everyone was in a good mood.

Force some turnovers...

Law of averages says that we EVENTUALLY gotta win the turnover battle.

So far Tech is winning

The uniform battle IMO.

Practice!

Good start

from the defense. Not a 3 and out, but no points.

Gotta start fast...

Texas Tech takes a 7-0 lead.

TOUCHDOWN!!!!


7

SEVEN different receivers caught the ball on that 150 yard first TD drive!!!

Making myself look silly on internet boards since before there were internets...

Penalties. We have a way of squeezing more yards into drives than anyone else!

We do whatever is necessary

to protect the defense

supadave57

That first drive was great in keeping our defense off the field

I posted before that our defense seems to be good for about 50 plays… maybe we’ll hold them under that?


We won

the first quarter penalty battle! OU 6 for 42, TT 5 for 40! Little steps.

BTW - We need to address the turnover issues with Oklahoma's quarterbacks at some point.

Interception !!!

Ahhhh...here comes the first shot at Baker Mayfield. Don't act like you don't wish he was still there in Lubbock. Dude recognized a sinking ship when he saw it and took the life boat.

I wonder if any of the OU fans are upset our Texas Tech dropout couldn't start for them today

techgolf44

hey ou has a red-shirt QB starting anyway

Looks like we may also have some football IQ issues as well. If the offense substitutes then the official stands over the ball to give the defense ample time to sub as well. Doesn't mean the play clock stops though.

How can the play clock run with the ref over the Effin ball!?

It was down to 12 that time

I know that keeps happening .... It is very frustrating

They also seem to have "little brother syndrome" and absolutely no understanding about how the head-to-head tiebreaker works.

Question: would it be more fun for TCU to lose and drop out of the playoff picture

or for TCU to win out and make the playoff?

Red and Black 71

TCU won't make the playoff

"I don't know what I'm going to do this week. Maybe I'll tell them both they aren't going to start. They both play better coming off the bench." Hal Mumme

I want TCU to win

Baylor does NOT deserve to be in the playoff with their non-con schedule.

Red and Black 71

Baylor won't make it either

"I don't know what I'm going to do this week. Maybe I'll tell them both they aren't going to start. They both play better coming off the bench." Hal Mumme

I'll be ok if no one in Big 12 make it

supadave57

TCU definitely has a better chance than Baylor

Baylor got embarrassed by UCF last year; I don’t think the committee would believe in them, especially after the West Virginia game.

Sooners get their first score of the day!

There went the shutout

OU has the blueprint. Now will tech be able to score again?

Practice!


And Tech responds!

TOUCHDOWN Ian Sadler!!!!

Great read by Mahomes!

Have I mentioned the turnover problems by Oklahoma's quarterbacks?

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

We intercepted again !!!!!

Madison gets the INT

Seriously! It has been a problem all season long. Regardless of who the quarterback is. Oooops! It just happened again.

And a THIRD interception!!!

RndRckTTU

Another interception !!!

Momentum for the 2nd half

Bob looks desperate

Tech takes a 21-7 lead in the 3rd quarter.

Touchdown Tech!!!

MY GOODNESS MAHOMES!!!

Best kind of QB for KK is one that can just create on the go! Damn the play call!

#JFFComesToMind

Making myself look silly on internet boards since before there were internets...

My Aggie buddie is watching this game

And keeps texting me comments like "when did JFF get a Tech uni?"

supadave57

They can't let JFF go

Techsican Jumping Bean

We would not be able to either

Making myself look silly on internet boards since before there were internets...

It's the only great thing the Aggies have ever done.

And we still can't figure out the substitution rules...BTW OU just scored.

how can the ref stand over the ball with the play clock running?

"I never said most of the things I said" - Yogi Berra

Techsican Jumping Bean

exactly!!

Making myself look silly on internet boards since before there were internets...

You either gotta figure it out or let it go, fellas.

Refs are on fire today

The big perine run eguavyn was clearly held and it wasn’t called, however Clark’s questionable hold was called immediately. They have been trying to put as many pot holes in our way as they can.

ReneR

Seems like a rule should be in place

Where if the ref is hindering the offense ability to run a play then the play clock shouldn’t move. Defenses will use that as an advantage.

Practice!

SAMAJE PERINE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's

The Tech defense we all know

I think tech that we know just showed up

Techsican Jumping Bean

Gotta HOLD

Right Here

Offense

Has got to score here.

Now we have to score!

Defense is done

Making myself look silly on internet boards since before there were internets...

Gunzblazin

They were

Done once the second half started… But they’re gassed right?

Techsican Jumping Bean

no excuse this game

Making myself look silly on internet boards since before there were internets...

Thomas

Having an easy time of it cause it takes 1 bazillion Raiders to tackle Perine

Making myself look silly on internet boards since before there were internets...

ReneR

It's a wonder

Why OU ever passed the ball the entire game. They were out thinking themselves

Practice!

Techsican Jumping Bean

Boy we know all about an OC

Doing that this year…

Making myself look silly on internet boards since before there were internets...

When you have...

Adrian Peterson, Demarco Murray, LT, Earl Cambell, and Walter Payton morphed into one guy…it makes sense as to why we can’t wrap up.

Techsican Jumping Bean

But it makes more sense

That they don’t wrap up when they don’t even try
