Tommy Tubberville's first season in Lubbock was full of ups and downs as the Red Raiders went 8-5.
Reason to be pessimistic: Tubberville lost a lot of offensive weapons from the Leach era. The QB and WR positions will have new faces, and the defense also lost some of their key pieces.
Reason to be optimistic: The players will have had a year to adjust to Tubbervilles changes. The recruiting is good, and the secondary should be strong.
Bottom Line: Tubberville is getting the job done on the recruiting trail. I just don't think the pieces are there for Texas Tech to have a strong year in 2011-2012.
In time Raider fans, in time.
