From Around The Big 12
“Our deepest fears have come alive the last few years with the rise to power of Baylor and TCU. Texas Tech enjoyed their role of third fiddle in the state of Texas for many years. However with the rise of Baylor under Texas Tech alumnus Art Briles and the budding powerhouse of TCU, Texas Tech is at risk of becoming irrelevant in their own state. Even Houston is a program rising into the national spotlight. Texas Tech fans are terrified of falling deeper into the sinkhole of irrelevance while historically weaker programs take up Tech’s chance to shine in the spotlight while UT and A&M are stumbling through ‘transitional periods.'” | EDSBS
