I Just Threw Up in my Mouth

In the interest of full disclosure, I am the eternal pessimist.  Glass half empty?  Hell - I'm thinking the damn glass will break and someone will step on it and require stitches.  So needless to say I am petrified of the upcoming Texas Tech matchup.

This year's Horns have now surpassed the 2005 MNC squad as my all time favorite.  Why?  That bunch was immensely talented, while the 2008 season almost seems like a Rocky sequel.   They are blue collar, fired up, and have to win games more with effort and commitment than just overwhelming the opposition with divine greatness.

To help settle my pregame angst I have read all the posts and these 4 areas or  statistics really scare me on this Halloween night:

1.  TT number 1 passing offense vs. the 104th ranked Horns defense.

Thank God we have the Will to overcome this.

2.  "12 Missed tackles generated generated 125 YAC vs. Okie State

Was this a Kendall Hunter deal?  Was this a bad day?  My hunch is that this will create such a focus this week that it will not recur against TT.

3.  Texas Tech has allowed 3 sacks all year?  WTF - they throw every down.

They have not dealt with an "Orakpo" like talent - but my hunch is that the pressure will have to come from Kindle and up the gut.  Okie St had 4 sacks all year and Texas sacked them 5 times.

4.  Raiderville starts on Tuesday?  Population at an all time high.

Saturday night - crazed rednecks - biggest night of their red neck lives - will the home crowd be a huge edge?
