Are you ready for some football?

I sure as hell am. Tech’s going to kick butt this year (hopefully). With Graham Harrell taking the reins of the nation’s most prolific passing offense for the umteenth year straight, I’m actually quite optimistic of our chances of finally taking the Tech program to the next level.

For those Tech alums and fans who don’t live in Lubbock, Jones Stadium (it’ll always be Jones Stadium – not that Jones SBC/AT&T Stadium crap – but that’s another rant in itself) has had its seven year old astroturf replaced with the ultra-trendy field turf. The sideline has also been “enhanced” with a brick wall as seen in the picture below that I took a couple weeks ago from the top of the West Ramp.

Looking good, isn’t it?

We’ve got season tickets again, but we moved seats. This past year we had the two most annoying guys sitting behind us who complained about everything. Let’s just hope those guys didn’t move too!

Go Tech!
