Monday Morning Twitter Pages: Texas Tech Edition


The opening weekend of the 2016 college football season was labeled by many to be the greatest opening weekend in recent memory.  And as is usually the case to most sequels, week two would be classified as a money grab by the studios to rake in more cash.  The afternoon slate of games were anticlimactic contests with the sole somewhat interesting game being the return of the battle of Pennsylvania between Pitt and Penn State.

The early evening games were highlighted by placing a football field in the infield of a half mile oval racetrack in Bristol, Tennessee.  The idea, while very original and buzz worthy, made the match-up between Tennessee and Virginia Tech the highest attended college football game ever played.  It may also go down as the fewest witnessed game ever played, since the stands full of people were so far removed from the field.  There was only one thing that could salvage the second weekend of the college football season and make this past weekend more than just the opening weekend for the NFL: Pac-12 After Dark.

The Sun Devils took center stage on a national network as the Texas Tech Red Raiders from the Big-12 visited Tempe for a highly anticipated out of conference battle.  Both teams known more for their scoring prowess did not disappoint as the two teams combined for over 1,200 yards of offense.  Taking advantage of a soft week of personal highlights across the country, Kalen Ballage turned in a record-setting night with eight total touchdowns to steal the show and lead the Sun Devils to victory.  The Sun Devils will now hit the road to take on the Roadrunners of the University of Texas San Antonio on Friday night.

So the time has come for the real meat and potatoes of your weekly Monday morning fix.  While it would be very easy for us just to throw a link up to recap the college football weekend through the eyes of Twitter.  We take pride in providing you, the reader, with things you may have missed while attending the kids’ soccer game, shopping for tailgate supplies, or waiting in line at the “honey bucket” without your phone.  Monday Morning Twitter pages isn’t about how Twitter ‘reacts’ to any one game or player on Saturday.  It’s about getting a look behind the curtain at the media and enjoying college football through the eyes of the fans.  With that said, let’s open those curtains.
