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

LUBBOCK, Texas — In a fan-engagement gimmick, the Texas Tech men’s basketball team gave away 5,000 replica masks of its Masked Rider mascot.
LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) Devaugntah Williams scored a career-high 22 points and Toddrick Gotcher added 17, leading Texas Tech over No. 9 Iowa State 78-73 Saturday for its first Big 12 win.
Fans swarmed the court after the victory.

In the loaded Big 12, Texas Tech has been an afterthought. Coming into tonight’s game with No. 9 Iowa State, the Red Raiders were 0-6 in conference play, but Tubby Smith’s team jumped all over the star-studded Cyclones from the get-go. Tech opened up a 19-point lead at one point, but Iowa State came back to cut the lead to three with 23 seconds left. Iowa State would never get...
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.
As they look to remain atop the Big 12, the ninth-ranked Cyclones hope to avoid another slow start Saturday as they try to keep a Red Raiders team that gave them fits last season winless in league...

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...
The SAE Jungle Party is one of the biggest ragers at Texas Tech every year. Unlike other massive parties some fraternities throw, the Jungle is actually held at SAE’s fraternity house–as opposed to clubs or something. You’ll notice that this adds the proper amount of sweat one would normally experience in a real world jungle.
While the event technically happened in late...
CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- Vinny Testaverde won a Heisman Trophy at Miami, and now his son plans to be a Hurricane.
Vincent Testaverde has applied to transfer from Texas Tech to Miami and if he enrolls will be immediately eligible. As a non-recruited walk-on at Texas Tech, he does not have to sit out a year to satisfy NCAA transfer rules.
Miami has wanted another quarterback behind...
Vinny Testaverde played his college football at Miami. The 21-year NFL veteran is perhaps the greatest quarterback in the history of the Hurricanes’ program, a consensus first-team All-American and the Heisman Trophy winner in 1986, his senior season.
There will be another Testaverde playing quarterback for Miami.
According to a report by the AP‘s Tim Reynolds, Vinny Testaverde’s...
LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) Justin Gray scored 13 points and Devaugntah Williams added 11 to lift Texas Tech past Arkansas-Pine Bluff 72-51 on Friday night.
The win gave the Red Raiders (9-1) their ninth straight win at home and moves them to 2-0 in the Continental Tire Las Vegas Classic, which continues Monday.
Texas Tech pulled away slowly in the second half as the Golden Lions shooting...

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.
Texas Tech's Patrick Mahomes owns the best passing day of the season by a quarterback who doesn't play for Washington State.
Mahomes obliterated the Big 12 freshman record with his 598 yards passing in Saturday's 48-46 loss to Baylor. His teammate, Davis Webb, set the previous record of 462 yards against West Virginia last year.
In his last three outings - against Texas, Oklahoma...

Heading in to Saturday night's game against Baylor Texas Tech already knew it had a pretty solid passer in freshman quarterback Patrick Mahomes. With three starts under his belt since taking over for an injured Davis Webb the youngster had averaged over 300 yards a game.So the fact that he had a good game against Baylor was not a surprise. The fact that his good game was really...
LUBBOCK, Texas. -- Freshman guard Charise Holloway recorded a game-high 14 points and pulled down six rebounds, but it wasn't quite enough, as Arizona dropped a 57-54 heartbreaker to Texas Tech, Friday night at United Supermarkets Arena.
For Holloway, the game marked her second straight double-digit scoring performance to begin her Wildcat career, while she also collected two...
We’ve seen a lot of ridiculous uniform patterns in college football over the last few seasons, but Texas Tech is breaking new ground today. Against Oklahoma, Tech will be wearing new Under Armour jerseys that fade from red to black, along with a black helmet with a red “masked rider” logo, and bright red cleats. This look will certainly get some attention around the sports...
Texas Tech was already a little behind the 8-ball heading in to Saturday's game against Texas with first string quarterback Davis Webb out. Patrick Mahomes has a lot of promise, but when you are playing a good defense like the Longhorns you need to have your best guy out there.You certainly don't need the opposition (that's you Quandre Diggs) taking out your No. 2 quarterback...
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...
I’m just really glad he wasn’t hurt.
During the Texas Tech Midnight Madness, head basketball coach Tubby Smith made his entrance on a motorcycle dressed as shaft.
Smith’s Richard Roundtree impersonation didn’t go as smoothly after falling off the bike as he was trying to stop.
Former Texas Tech walk-on and reigning Big 12 Offensive Freshman of the Year Baker Mayfield will have to sit out the season after his waiver request was denied by the NCAA. Mayfield transferred from Texas Tech to Oklahoma after last season due partially to Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury refusing to name Mayfield the starting quarterback [&hellip

Kliff Kingsbury is as smooth as they come, and probably the only coach in college football with the looks and charisma to pull off such a bold challenge.
The Texas Tech head coach, while wearing a “Beyonce is Bae” T-shirt, challenged the Queen B to dump ice on her head for a good cause. The entire Red Raiders football team participated in this challenge.
