SORT BY Relevancy
Hunter is back!! Team Optimism is here.
We talk Tech's victory, Kliff as head coach, Davis Webb and transfer possiblities, Justin Beiber, BM , College Football Playoff and even a CSI Miami reference. Let's have some fun!
To be fair... I'm a fan of Charlie Strong and Texas is slightly... yes SLIGHTLY harder to hate with Charlie as HC.
And Zach (Austin), sorry bud. We may have you on to defend your musical taste. haha
It's a preview podcast on a Sunday. Weird, right? We had some good stuff lined up, but it didn't come together. Won't spoil the surprise in case we can do it for the bowl preview.
Before getting to the pod, there is something we forgot to discuss in it. That is DB Derrick Dixon airing some displeasure with his role on the team via Twitter soon after the victory against Kansas State.
Now I'm all for players not being satisfied with their role on the team or thinking they deserve more playing time, but Twitter isn't the place to do it and unfortunately, probably secured a release to transfer at the end of this season by doing so. I'm sure this wasn't the first attempt to discuss the situation with coaches, but after not getting anywhere privately, the next place is publicly to try and force the coaches hand one way or another.
This is typical in coaching changes whether it be coordinator or head coach. Sometimes talent doesn't transcend schemes or doesn't reveal itself in practice. Coach Gibbs, for all the struggles, seems to have a clear idea of what he wants and for whatever reason, Derrick Dixon isn't seeing the field.
I hope the situation with Derrick gets figured out. He does have talent and I think we need all the bodies we can get at the moment, but it wasn't the best decision he could have made.
Now on to the pod.
College playoff Top 4, what went on in the Big 12 and seeing what the Longhorns bring to the table... here we go.
This week doesn't have the bells and whistles like normal, but it is a lot of fun. I'm saving up a bunch of stuff to make next week's pod for Texas one to remember.
Let's celebrate being bowl eligible. Oh and we do discuss Kingsbury as our head coach for the 4th straight week... why? Because Tech fans keep talking about it in the comments.
Pay attention, you have an opportunity to put in your reasons why Kingsbury shouldn't be the coach. There are a few requirements and an email to send it to and we will discuss next week.
Thank you to all 8 of you for listening this week!! ;)
Drew, Eric and Kyle break it all down in the latest edition of the Air Raid Podcast. From the OSU win, to Marcus Smart two years later, to the loss in Austin, to the week ahead.
Simple message this week for Kingsbury. Get back to your aggressiveness in 2013. Fortune favors the bold... let's get it.
Still riled up about the OU game? We do our best to talk you off the ledge and get you ready for next week and the remaining 4 games of the season.
Let us know what you think and be sure to leave your questions for Thursday's preview in the comments section.
It was a big day for Texas Tech football as they pull in 7 DL commits in this year's class. One of those DL commits, Houston Miller, joins the Air Raid in an epic interview.
We also break down the class and look at who will be an immediate impact player and who looks to be redshirted going into the Fall.
It's Halloween and there's nothing scarier than Hunter without a shirt. Except maybe Tech's rush defense. There were some technical difficulties as well.
It's not really a preview. It's more of a rant/vent session. Yeah... Uh Oh, Here We Go....
Don't get your hopes up... we don't talk Kansas too much. Let's move on to OU.
Don't forget the Preview Pod coming out on Thursday/Friday morning depending on how long it goes. We're not sure because we are going to have Tramain Swindall on and it's going to be awesome.
Hunter and Jonathan are still really angry about the love Baylor gets for everything and really let it fly. There was so much editing and outtakes from this podcast, I wish everyone could hear the B-Roll.
We hope you enjoy it and the new look! And please leave questions for us to answer next time including our preview podcast on Kansas coming later this week!
