A View From A Thousand Miles Away of Texas Tech – by Allen Corbin

Texas Tech Athletics is Desperate to the Hot Chick I love Lubbock,Texas. It gets a poor rap from Metroplex elites, yankees, and local Democrats. Yes, Lubbock corners the market on franchise restaurants, semi-annual rumors of minor league baseball/river walk development, and county government run amok, but it’s still wonderful regardless of those aforementioned plagues of pipe dreams that don’t enhance life on the high ground. Texas Tech Athletics has a…

Hyatt Explains His “DFW Fascination Tweet” Make TexasTech Compelling Again!

Last week when Texas Tech announced the spring game would be played in Frisco I sent out a tweet that I knew many folks would react to. They’d totally misunderstand what I meant, and that’s OK. I knew that given time, some folks would understand what I was getting at. A few did. Most didn’t. They continued to think I was talking about a singular spring game being played in…

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly – Feb 13 Weekend Review

Good, Bad and Ugly Recap for Monday 2 13 17     Good. Sturgill Simpson got to play music on The Grammy’s. Not enough to make me watch the whole show of course, but it is a start.   Chris Beard’s bunch played basketball at a pretty high level for most of Saturday against #1 Seed-In-Waiting Kansas. The junior class provided most of the firepower for the Red Raiders. That’s…

Five Things We Know on a Sunday – Feb. 12

1. Lubbock needs a Dog Park less than it needs bike lanes, and Lubbock doesn’t need bike lanes at all. In fact, Lubbock needs to restrict where folks can ride bikes to roads with a speed limit of 30 MPH or less. 2. Around my house it works like this. My wife is going to the Garth Brooks concert and I’m going to the Trisha Yearwood concert. Luckily they’re on…

Cultural Index – Feb. 9

Want to learn how to lose 8 pounds fast? Ask me how!!!! It’s been a rough week around the house. I came down with whatever nasty stomach bug has been going around Lubbock and the South Plains and it laid me low. Quite literally the worst I’ve felt in many years and I can’t recall the last time I lost that much weight with a sickness. I suppose it’s what…

The Good, The Bad, The Ugly – Feb. 6

The Good The Super Bowl Starting With Three Minutes Left In The Third Quarter. Really? I just had to delete three “Good” categories and re-write half this column. It was worth it to see that debacle of a collapse and greatness of a comeback. Tom Brady. Is the best ever? Maybe. Best of the generation and era? It’s not even close. For the most part in the past there were…

Five Things We Know on a Sunday – Feb. 5

The Super Bowl should be played on a Saturday. Ya, I know, “Super Sunday” and all that…you can still keep the alliteration going with “Super Saturday.” Play that thing at 6 p.m. on a Saturday night with folks not having to go to work or school the next morning and it would get even bigger than it is today. More folks would be apt to go out, so it would…
