A big smile came across my face this morning when I read about this very positive petition.

Lubbock resident Ryan Smith has started a Change.org petition asking that Texas Tech University 'Blue Out The Jones' during the Iowa State game on Saturday, October 21st.

These types of petitions are usually a strong indicator of support for particular events, themes and changes. As of this writing, 4,296 people have signed this petition. The goal was set at 5,000 signatures.

Smith said he's emailed Texas Tech Athletics Director Kirby Hocutt about this petition and hopes that the October 21st homecoming game will be declared the official 'Back the Blue' game.

If you would like to be a part of this petition, you can go to Change.org.
