Yes, this isn't the first time I've speculated about the idea of a curse.

The first curse I proposed was a pirate's curse -- that we'd never be true winners until we made things right with "The Pirate" Mike Leach. Then, I had another thought this morning while playing some Metallica.

Texas Tech quit winning when the special teams made a change.

For quite a while, the Red Raider Special Teams had Metallica's "Seek & Destroy" as their theme song. I believe they dropped that for whatever hip-hop flavor of the month there is out there. Don't get me wrong, I've heard some decent hip-hop, but it makes me want to sway side to side, when the goal should be to get charged up and go hit another player right in the kisser.

So how about it, Texas Tech? Let's lift this curse and get some metal back on that field.
