It’s Friday and it’s nearly summer. School’s out most places, a lot of people took the week off to extend their Memorial Day holiday, and some businesses are shifting to summer hours.
What am I trying to say? I’m trying to say it’s Friday, let’s not push ourselves too hard. We don’t want anyone getting injured today. This is a non-contact practice day; let’s all just watch some film and stay healthy.
Today’s trip down nostalgia lane is from Halloween weekend 2008, when #7 Texas Tech (I know, right?! Texas Tech was good, not that long ago!) welcomed to Lubbock the #1 team in the country, Texas (I know, right!? Texas was good, not that long ago!).
Texas was led by future Cleveland Browns Hall of Participants quarterback Colt McCoy; Texas Tech’s Mike Leach-era offense was highlighted by star receiver Michael Crabtree. Graham Harrell threw for nearly 500 yards.
You know all this already. I just like remembering.
I clearly remember watching this game; I was getting ready for a second night of Halloween-weekend bar-hopping, and yet this game kept an apartment full of drunk people who had absolutely no stake in Big 12 football glued to the screen until the end; it paid off.
Enjoy your weekend.
