After Saturday’s disappointing loss to Texas Tech, the Iowa State men’s basketball team needed some home cooking.

Williams' 22 points help Texas Tech upset No. 9 Iowa State

  Texas Tech noticed that Iowa State players weren't making it around Red Raiders' screens, so they started putting up 3-pointers. The Red Raiders hit 11 from behind the arc to earn their first Big 12 win, 78-73, on Saturday. ''We didn't plan on shooting it,'' Texas Tech coach Tubby Smith said. ''Shoot them when you're open, and we were open because of the way they were defendng...

Although his squad is off to the program's best conference start in 15 years, Iowa State coach Fred Hoiberg still has plenty of concerns heading into a matchup with last-place Texas Tech.

Texas Tech Doesn’t Like Massive Snow Dongs On Campus

Texas Tech students rarely see snow on campus, so who can blame them if they want to act a little foolish and build a seven-foot tall snow dong? Apparently the school administration, that’s who. They didn’t take too long on getting a bulldozer to knock down the snow sculpture students had erected. S/O to the guy who followed Stan Van Gundy’s advice and asked people to...

Texas Tech commit D’Vonta Hinton, a three-star linebacker from Texas City, Texas, pledged himself to the Red Raiders back in April of 2014. And judging by the tweet he sent out Wednesday evening, it doesn’t look like he’s changed his mind very much in the time since. Hinton, who is apparently on his way to Lubbock for a visit, posted a photo of the back of his head, which features...

Texas Tech QB Hunter Rittimann Calls 5-Star QB Jarrett Stidham “A Scrub”, Calls Out Texas Commit

Texas Tech quarterback Hunter Rittimann appears to not think very highly of Jarrett Stidham. That shouldn’t be surprising, considering what the five-star recruit recently did to the Red Raiders.  Stidham, a 6-foot-3, 195-pound prospect, committed to Texas Tech last March. Last Saturday, Stidham announced on Twitter that he was de-committing from the Red Raiders.  Friday morning...

Texas Tech Alternate Uni's Look Like What Captain America Would Wear (if he played football)

It is not unusual to hear football players equate their exploits on the field to being 'super human.' it is also not unusual for fans to refer to their favorite player as being a super hero. Heck, while they would never admit it there is not a coach in the country (any level) that hasn't thought at some point in time how nice it would be to have just one Clark Kent on...
