Texas Tech got caught

Texas Tech coach Chris Beard has a funny way of saying Tech was exposed.

“We’ve got to find a way to take the next step as a program. I told the guys in a lot of ways that we were robbing banks,” Beard said. “We’ve got a lot of money. We win on the buzzer. We win in overtime. We haven’t got caught yet. Tonight we got caught.” [Everything Lubbock]

Get Underwood a sheriff badge!

State loses Bedlam

While the Sooners still struggled to find an offensive rhythm in the third quarter, they focused on the defensive end to find energy and keep the Cowgirls from controlling the game.

Coale’s team used an effective full-court press for most of the game, forcing OSU to commit 21 turnovers. [NewsOK]

Bummer here. OSU men and women combined Big 12 record: 3-11. Jim Littell noted that the 21-9 turnover differential on Sunday was, uh, a big deal.

Packers, Taylor fall in ATL

Evan Epstein (friend of the blog) is proud of his buddy.

“I’m running out of things to talk crap about,” Epstein said. “He’s been playing better every single game.” On the day that Taylor plays for a chance to go to the Super Bowl, no one is more excited than Epstein. Along with Levy Adcock, another former Cowboy offensive lineman, the three Cowboys have stayed close since their OSU days. They talk all the time. They visit when they can.”We knew this was going to happen,” Epstein said. “Getting to watch his work ethic … everything he got, he deserved. [NewsOK]

Unfortunately Lane got hurt in the game yesterday.

Big official visit weekend

Good roundup of content from Robert Allen. This on Chuba Hubbard definitely stood out.

Hubbard was in Stillwater with his mom, Candace, and father, Lester Yearwood. He said it was just as strong, maybe even more so for them, and especially his mom.

“I think she liked it even more than I did,” Hubbard added. “I was having fun, but I think they were freaking out. It was crazy because I was overwhlemed by everything, but I think she was over the top. The food was awesome, meal after meal, I’d never had anything like that. It was just awesome all the way around.” Needless to say, that is good to hear as Hubbard is a valuable member of that talented recruiting class that he speaks so proudly of being a part of this year.

J.D. King said the staff treated them like, well, “kings.” Here are some photos from the weekend.

Emergence of Solomon

A certain coach before him spent two years trying to get this level of play from him, and never got close. Now, halfway through the first year of Underwood’s career, we are witnessing Mitchell Solomon blossom into something we never thought possible … A force to be dealt with. [CRFF]

I don’t know about a force, but he’s certainly been better. Which helps. The problem is that Solomon’s ceiling is “below average Big 12 starting center.” Like, that’s his ceiling. And he’s one of only two big men currently on the roster.
