A school located in Texas about 4 hours west of Dallas. Known for it's good looking people and rowdy crowd. Texas Tech students generally have alot more social skills than students at Texas A&M. Texas Tech does not have a fake military( the corps. ) #2 Hottest girls in Playboy magazine. Texas A&M has a hatred for Texas Tech due to the fact they get beat by Texas Tech every year in every sport so they have to resort to slanderous, false, ignorant comments about the academics at Texas Tech. General snobby fans. A generally wealthy population of students.
If texas tech got in a fist fight with any other school, texas tech would win.

Texas tech beat texas A&M this year. In everything.

All Big 12 fans are scared of Texas Tech fans. That's why they don't come to Lubbock.

A second-rate public university located in Lubbock, Tx. Those who attend the school were denied admission to prestigious universities of Texas (Texas A&M and University of Texas) and were forced to attend the school due to: scholastic inability, a desire to attend a large Texas school, and a general lack of options. Students and Alumni are given little respect by Texas universities because of classless nature and ineptitude. The nick-name "Tortilla Tech" has been given to the school so as not to defame the great state of Texas by association.
Guns up? How about you get your grades up and transfer from Texas Tech to a real university.

The three guarantees in life: death, taxes, and acceptance to Texas Tech.

Texas Tech has such a high STD rate that local infection has been named "Raider Rash".

John and Eric: Hooray for mediocrity!

A major Texas school located out in the BFE that is Lubbock. Surounded by desert and cotten feilds Texas Tech is a jem in the ruff, a shining beakon of knowledge, a, well you get the picture. Also, a great party school and was voted #2 by playboy magazine for the hottiest girls at any university. May be a major source of STD's
Did you hear about that great party out at Texas Tech last night

A very major state university that offers a wide array of degree programs and opportunities. From law school, to medical school and just about everything in between. Students at Texas Tech think that its funny when Aggies are so insecure about how bad we beat them at sports, that they resort to talking down our academics and studies. A rather sad defense mechanism.

On a brighter note, our women are gorgeous. Hands down the best looking out of any Big 12 school. The nightlife is fantastic, our athletics program (particularly football) is among the best in the country and is a major contender every year to win the Big 12.
Mike: "Hey, did you watch that ass kicking that Tech handed A&M last night?"

Sarah: "Yeah, but i turned it off at halftime because i couldn't stand to watch A&M get embarrassed like that"

Texas Tech football has been one of the most successful programs in the Big 12 since 2000. Ahead of A&M since then.
