Will Raider Red Wear a Face Mask on the Sidelines?
Texas Tech head football coach Matt Wells has already commented on wearing masks, saying he was all-in on wearing his mask so fall sports can happen. Now, mascot Raider Red has joined the fight against COVID-19.
Does this mean Raider Red will be the Masked Raider this fall? If he's even allowed on the sidelines, that is. I can only assume that Raider Red 's face mask is an officially licensed product from an officially licensed producer of quality Double T apparel. Surely he's not gone rogue and produced his own mask.
Also, did Raider Red forget his holster and six-shooter, or is Texas Tech going to subtly erase the gun from the mascot without a statement? Maybe his gun is in his other pants. Or maybe the mask is all the protection he needs. The rallying cry for fans across West Texas will now be "Masks Up."
