Viva The Matadors | 2012-12-07 Morning Links

Women's basketball, soccer, men's basketball and football links.

So we made it to the weekend. I am so happy. I'll have quite a bit more content next week. Start taking a look at Minnesota, getting more into the marginalization of the football program series (I really hope I'm using that word correctly). Also, Forbes did a story on SB Nation if that sort of thing interests you.


* Lady Raiders enter break on high note | Red Raiders


* Texas Tech Soccer - 2012 Season in Review - Texas Tech Red Raiders Official Athletic Site and Coaches and players reflect on 2012 soccer season - The Daily Toreador: Sports


* UConn is wise to be patient evaluating Kevin Ollie before committing longterm | The Dagger: College Basketball Blog - Yahoo! Sports | This is a story about UConn's Kevin Ollie, but a lot of the rational applies to Texas Tech and Chris Walker. I am sure it would be nice to have the interim tag removed, but the best thing overall is to look at the program after the season and that's coming from someone that is a huge fan of Walker.


* Davis Named to 2012 Capital One Academic All-America® First Team - Texas Tech Red Raiders Official Athletic Site and Texas Tech's Cody Davis named Capital One Academic All-American | Red Raiders | Congrats to Cody!

* Plenty on to-do list for Texas Tech during bowl practice | Red Raiders

* Kentucky, Neal Brown still in talks | UK News, Recruiting | and Neal Brown and Chad Scott interviewing at Kentucky | I get the feeling that we might not get an answer for a bit longer, especially as practices start to happen this week.

* Tennessee targeting Butch Jones and Kirby Smart; Tommy Tuberville also in touch - | Look at all these rumors surroundin' me every day. --Timex Social Club

* Guide to Big 12 bowl games: Texas Tech | Fox Sports Southwest and Your 2012 bowl game viewing guide - Turfburner

* Matthew Beyer (Beyer78) on Twitter | Beyer is a former OU commit that found out he had a spinal condition before signing day and OU ended up not honoring his scholarship (I can't blame them since the injury was found out about before signing day). Here's a bit on Beyer's injury. Beyer was just accepted to Texas Tech.

* Agents say 'Double Standard' puts college coaches in a no-win situation - NCAA Football - News, Scores, Stats, Schedule and BCS Rankings | This is from two agents and it is really interesting to see the other side of the coin in the coaching search / silly season for college football.

* A personal note about Bruce Feldman's article | Football Scoop | I went back and looked at the emails from Pete and they make sense. He was very concerned that I didn't give credit to Football Scoop rather than Coaching Search and said that Football Scoop blatantly steals information. It now makes sense.
