After the Texas Tech Red Raiders lost 66-6 last Saturday to Oklahoma State in Lubbock, it didnâ€™t take too long for people to get on the message boards and start debating if the football program is going the right direction under head coach Tommy Tuberville.
After such a bad loss, especially at home, the message board was full of Red Raider fans saying they are ready for Texas Tech to go in a new direction and saying Tuberville has been nothing more than a figure head for the program and not a good coach.
A Fresh Perspective
By Michelle Berry
It amazes me nowadays what types of things people will file lawsuits about in this day and time. What amazes me the cost is just how petty some of these lawsuits actually are.
An organization known as the Texans For Lawsuit Abuse has a list of some of the most outrageous lawsuits ever filed on its web site. As I scoured the list, I honestly had to shake my head at some of the craziness surrounding them.
After all the turnover the Frank Phillips College Athletic Department saw in the spring and summer, one of the discussions I found myself having a couple of times centered around how the collegeâ€™s athletic teams are going to struggle to have any kind of success over the next several years.

The way she looks has been a lifelong struggle for Sylvia*.
When she was just a little girl she had the misfortune to overhear a houseguest tell his wife,
â€śI thought Sylvia was ugly the last time we saw her, but I declare, sheâ€™s getting uglier.â€ť
â€śIt must be true,â€ť Sylvia thought. â€śBecause Mamma never tells me that I am pretty.â€ť
Even when she wore a new dress there was no compliment from Mamma.
But then Mamma was a beautiful woman.
So Sylvia grew up deeply self-conscious about her skin that was well populated with pimples.

Both of them worked for the same public service agency. Bruce* was in a different department than Amanda*, but from time to time they would pass each other at the time clock or out in the parking lot. Sometimes they passed without speaking but occasionally there was a nod or maybe a generic greeting befitting their positions.

Heâ€™s a manâ€™s man, tall and big. And heâ€™s strong. Life has made him tough just like his dad, but heâ€™s not hard.
There is a noble demeanor about him, a gentle strength that quietly whispers, â€śWeâ€™re going to do the right thing here.â€ť
And Jim* loves working.
There is not a day when he doesnâ€™t gladly crawl out of bed and go to work.
He works when heâ€™s sick, he works when heâ€™s well.
He works when things are going smoothly. He works when things arenâ€™t going well. Heâ€™s a workingman.
Some people presume he is on the job because he owns the business.
