08-09 Texas Tech Red Raiders

Before I start, I just want to let you know that I'm not being biased just because I like Texas Tech about my opinions in this blog entry. . .

So, how 'bout those TTU Red Raiders?

With one of the most prolific offenses in the NCAA and a top WR & underrated QB, I think Texas Tech is releasing one of the best group of players in school history. Featuring Top 5 predicted WR Michael Crabtree and QB Graham Harrel who was at one point the leading contender for the Heisman Trophy and Big 12  sack leader DE Brandon Williams, Texas Tech was one of the top teams this year, ranked as highas No. 2 in the country and losing only 1 regular season game. They were not given a spot in the BCS because of being placed behind Oklahoma and Texas in the overall rankings, and lost the Cotton Bowl to Ole Miss which I think was due to the large amount of injuries in the first half. Crabtree was hampered by an ankle injury and was held to a career low 30 yards and FS Darcel McBath and CB Jamar Wall both suffered injuries, two key players on the defense.

The NFL Draft is looking good for many prospects from Texas Tech. Crabtree is projected at No. 3 in the draft, while Harrel is projected to be picked in the 2nd or 3rd round. I think Williams may also be a late 1st round early 2nd round pick with his speed and atheleticism.
