How will the Texas Tech Red Raiders fare this season? What will their overall and Big 12 records be? Will they make a postseason tournament?

2011-12 Texas Tech Projected Record:
Matt Patton: 11-19
Joe Loyd: 8-22
Evan Pfaff: 12-18
Surprise 2011-12 game Texas Tech will win:
JL: Home against Kansas State
MP: Baylor at Texas Tech. Huge talent discrepancy, but the Bears don't have a ton of experience in the backcourt and the game is very early in conference play (meaning it'll be one of each team's first real games).
EP: Really any conference game will be an upset, so I'll go with the Oral Roberts game in Tulsa. ORU is good -- and beat Mizzou at ORU a few years ago -- but I think Tech can win this one.
Surprise 2011-12 game the Red Raiders will lose:
JL: Home against Oklahoma
EP: At TCU. The Horned Frogs aren't good, but the game is a trap for the Red Raiders.
