This, That, & the Other

Today's daily dose of random is brought to you by the number 14, the letter R, and my neighbor's annoying dog.


Only In Russia of the Day


Daily Dose of Random

Unless this thief is 12, I don't think he was playing a game of backyard baseball.

Bacon. Potato. Fritters. That is all.

Bees that are also zombies? No thanks, I'll just hunker down and wait for the end.

If you thought things were grim before, just wait until we run out of bacon.

Today in RRS History

2008- Four start wide receiver Emory Blake listed a top five, including Texas Tech.

2007 - Head coach Mike Leach talked about changing defensive coordinators.

2005 -Defensive tackle Richard Jones committed to Texas Tech.

"I realized I wanted to be a Red Raider when I walked out on the field. When I first came out the tunnel, I saw fans with signs with my name on it. One sign said 'The Richard Jones Fan Club' and I really liked that. They showed me a lot of love."

2004 - Texas Tech defeated Kansas 31-30, mounting the biggest come from behind win in school history.
