Damn, I hate to say it out loud, but this is historically when we drop the ball. The minute we start to get national pub, we seem to always nip it in the bud with a loss. Now typically that's been against ou, but still, squinky.....

I call for nothing short of banishment from Stillwater for the rest of his life.

I think it's much easier (and expected) for an offensively supported team to drop the ball. Defense is solid and won't faulter.

It's the Eddie Sutton approach. Offense comes and goes as shots fall but defense can be a consistent weapon.

For what it's worth, TCU was pretty bad at pass defense. Their passing efficiency defense rank was 116th coming into our game with them.

Texas Tech is 123rd.

Tech is 47th in the nation against the run, so they're not as terrible as TCU was, but if the running game gets a push early in this one, it could get nasty quickly. Spencer Sanders has been nicely efficient lately, and he could end up carving up Tech if they drive him to it.
