I'd like to thank Coach Tommy Tuberville for accepting my invitation as guest commentator in this segment last week. And as we kick off a new season this Saturday, I'd echo his comments.
Texas Tech home games are a weekend-long community-wide event. And they start with ‘Raider Power' Friday and, hopefully, end with a Red & Black win on Saturday. But they need your help.
Let's intimidate our new rivals this season by showing our spirit in numbers and in school colors. Support the Red Raiders and paint the town red and black on Fridays. Then show up for the game on Saturday and cheer them on to victory.
Also, Consider this:
I'd add just one thought to Coach Tuberville's comments last week. Let's be honorable on the field and in the stands. The timing is right to change the negative perception of bad sportsmanship at Jones Stadium. Coach has set the tone for just that - now it's time we all follow through.
Let's prove to the new members of our conference that we can be gracious hosts and courteous fans. Let's leave ‘em with a losing score, but do it with true hospitality and good sportsmanship.
