5 Things Likely to Happen If Texas Tech Beats Texas This Weekend
There's always bad blood between Texas Tech and Texas, and I have to say it's kind of ridiculous.
A lot of the things I'm going to point out are not positive, but if you've lived in Lubbock for any length of time you know I'm basing all of this on history. I'll also say that the bad things could be cured with a little sportsmanship, but there's something about the University of Texas that boils the blood of the Red Raider faithful.
The Field Will Be Stormed If We Win
I still don't understand storming the field or why it's allowed. It seems like it creates a dangerous situation. Plus, what have you done to deserve to be on that field? I realize many of us spend the cash on tickets, merch, and do whatever we can to support the team, but I believe that the turf should be reserved for the guys who put actual sweat and blood into it.
Some Texas Fans Will Claim to Be Attacked
This is a recurring thing and it shouldn't be. I know saying "it's just a game" will hold no water with uber-fans, so just try to remember that Texas fans are our guests, as well as being moms, dads, brothers, and friends of the players. I'm sure in some Texas Tech fans' minds, any sign of burnt orange means an invading force, but it's just football fans.
Garbage Will Be Thrown On the Field
Even Texas Tech Head Coach Joey McGuire has taken the time to point out that throwing bottles on the field is not a tradition. This also includes throwing trash or whatever at the opposing team, band, and fans. Just think of the Longhorns as "not good enough for your trash" and don't throw any.
The Drunkenness Will Be Epic
The only way Broadway and other portions of town won't be a giant mess is if we lose badly enough that everyone just goes home. Since we don't want that to happen, how about a little self-control? Okay, I'm not even going to try here. Some people will get out-of-control and nothing I type here will help.
You Will Never, Ever Hear the End of It
If Texas Tech wins, whether it's by 1 point, 50 points, in double overtime, or for any reason, it will be an actual win for the ages. Texas Tech has not won against UT since 2017, and many harbor personal grudges against the Longhorns, especially after the perceived theft of the Red Raiders basketball coach.
Be safe out there this weekend, and Wreck 'em Tech!
