I don't really take any joy in writing posts about teams naming starting quarterbacks, but I do enjoy when the news comes because it usually means we're only a few weeks away from the start of the season. So, with that in mind, I am thrilled to let you all know that Texas Tech head coach Tommy Tuberville named Seth Doege his starting quarterback on Monday.

It's not the most shocking announcement in the world, as it's been assumed that Doege would get the job for a while now.

Not only does he have the most experience of the Tech quarterbacks -- he's thrown 61 passes his last two seasons -- but he's also a hybrid of the tandem that the Red Raiders used at quarterback last season. He's mobile like Steven Sheffield was, but he also has an arm like that of Graham Harrell's.

Of course, that doesn't mean that Doege will put up the astronomical numbers of previous Tech quarterbacks. Tommy Tuberville is also in the process of making this Texas Tech offense a bit more Tubervillian, which means that the running game is going to be featured more than in years past.

Mixed emotions

I have mixed emotions on Texas Tech.  The fans deserve a winner, but the administration deserves to lose repeatedly until they "man up" and pay the rest of Mike Leach's contract.  Sorta like they have since they fired him.

Texas Tech names Seth Doege its starter

It's about time. He should've started last year and even possibly two years ago. He has the ability to be as good or better than Harrell. I'm excited to see him running our offense for the next two years.
