There's a certain segment of the fan base that has more of a rivalry with UT, for different reasons," said Chris Snead, associate vice president of the Texas Tech Alumni Association.
That would mean it points closer to UT than A&M, said Snead. "The reality is it's something that a lot of fans can get behind, and it's one of those rumors and traditions we like to live by up here," Snead said. We'd probably be No. 2 with A&M," Snead said. Snead said energy has built up in Lubbock for the Oklahoma and Oklahoma State games, too. In recent years, the Baylor University game has gotten bigger. But going into the next five to 10 years, it's TCU that will become a rival, he said, even though TCU considers Tech a bigger rival than the Red Raiders consider the Horned Frogs. "When we shared a conference in the Southwest Conference, I don't think the rivalry was nearly as strong with TCU," he said. Chris Snead

2. The statue, along with the Tech seal and other noted campus landmarks, will be adequately protected from would-be vandals by Saddle Tramp sentries throughout the night Friday and well into the wee hours of game day, a tradition that has been carried out by the student spirit organization for more than 10 years, according to Chris Snead, associate vice president at the Texas Tech Alumni Association.
To solve this problem, the statue was repositioned "in the late 1960s or '70s," according to Snead. It was moved 23 degrees so the horse's posterior faces more toward College Station, and away from downtown Lubbock, or so the story goes. "In reality, it's 23 degrees south from north," Snead explained, "and faces in the general direction of College Station. But to be honest, it probably faces closer to Leander and Austin. But that's OK. The story is still good." As to who decided to position the statue as it is currently, few, if anyone, living can recall. One rumor related by Snead was "several members of the football team picked it up and moved it, then got so tired they just dropped it off there." "A lot of stuff is based in rumor, and we've tried to piece it together based on what we know," Snead said. The Saddle Tramps started wrapping the statue in red crepe paper prior to every home game in the 1970s, according to Snead. "It's an undertaking," said Snead, who serves as an adviser to the spirit group. It also was draped in black in August following the passing of longtime Lubbock and Texas Tech sports broadcaster Jack Dale, Snead said. "I think he will probably stay right where he's at," Snead said. Chris Snead
