Football is Back in Raiderland

Football has returned to West Texas.

19,500 fearless Red Raider fans rallied together this past Saturday for Texas Tech’s Spring football game. This was the 8th largest attended NCAA Spring Game in the country, which is no surprise considering all the attendance records that were broken during the 2013 season.

Davis Webb was exceptionally impressive at this year’s game, which included 25-of-37 passes for 354 yards and four touchdowns. Webb’s spot on passing was enough to seal a 37-30 win over a defense that’s still finding its rhythm with a bevy of new players.

There were flashes of brilliance and a fair share of blunders that come with the Spring Game. Personally, I enjoyed watching Webb show off his new strength that’s developed since leading the Red Raidera to a surprise victory over Arizona State in the Holiday Bowl. Aside from showcasing his new arm, I was pleasantly surprised to see Tech’s wide receivers mix it up. Sure, there were a few butter-finger moments, but things are looking promising. On the flip side, the defense held their own and showed signs of a unit that is looking to improve after a so-so year in 2013.

All in all, it was an amazing day for college football game in Lubbock, Texas. If you’re like me and will struggle to pass the time between now and the first game of the Red Raider’s 2014 season, please do yourself a favor and watch this video of Coach Kinsbury and the gang dancing it up after practice.
