The Problem With Winning. In kind of checking in on things early this morning, I noticed that considering everything that happened, there really wasn’t a ton of comments happening on ye ol’ blog and it’s interesting how all of that winning tends to mean a lack of comments, which is a good thing. So, the problem with winning for a blogger is the overall lack of comments because there’s nothing to argue or discus.
Texas Tech Track and Field
An assault on the record books, a second-straight men’s indoor title, and one of the best all-around performances ever by our women.
If you haven’t read up on our weekend yet, we’ve got you covered.

Mid-Week Game vs. New Mexico State. Just in case you are new, I don’t do game day threads for the mid-week games for baseball. Just not enough time. Arkansas transfer and righthander Bryce Bonnin will get the start for Texas Tech. Texas Tech will be in Frisco for the weekend to take on Nebraska, Mississippi State, and Sam Houston State.
We’ll close our home stand with New Mexico State on Tuesday. https://t.co/pQb6y3z2PS

O’Tremba the Big 12 Newcomer of the Week. Congrats to freshman outfielder Tanner O’Tremba for being named the Big 12 Co-Newcomer of the Week after hitting .455 for the weekend and 7 RBI on Sunday alone.
O’Tremba’s 7⃣ RBI in the series finale stands as the most by any Big 12 player in a game this season.

No. 11 in AP Poll The AP Top 25 was released yesterday and Texas Tech moved up 3 spots to No. 11 in the country. This was about the most that Texas Tech could move up given what happened in front of them, i.e. that the teams in front of them didn’t deserve to move down that much, the biggest argument would have been Michigan losing, but they’ve just now lost their 4th game of the year to Michigan State by 7, which is not a bad loss. CollegePollTracker shows you the voters and most of the voters have Texas Tech in that 11 or 12 range, which the outliers being The Athletic’s Seth Davis who has Texas Tech at No. 18 and Tom Bragg from the Charleston Gazette-Mail has Texas Tech at No. 5 (way to go Tom!). The current NET Rankings have Texas Tech at No. 10, which is great for national seeding purposes.
Big 12 Standings. With Kansas State’s loss to Kansas last night, Texas Tech is 0.5 games behind the Wildcats for 1st place in the Big 12, while the Jayhawks are a full game behind K-State. With a Texas Tech win against Oklahoma State on Wednesday, the Red Raiders will be tied for 1st in the Big 12.

Night Moves. This is either really early morning or at night, but my narrative fits better at night.

New Commit. Time permitting, I’m getting up a commitment post for a commit from last night, 2020 athlete Donovan Smith, who is the son of Texas Tech running backs coach DeAndre Smith.
I want to thank @TTUCoachWells and @CoachYost for believing in me from the jump as a freshman. Thank you to my family and coaches for helping me throughout my career so far. After a great weekend at Texas Tech, I’m excited to say I’m going to be a Red Raider‼️🔴⚫️ #Ŧ20 #WreckEm pic.twitter.com/JzvTaRV4Te
