TRACK AND FIELD | The official site checks in on U.S. Olympic competitor Jason Young as does LAJ's Don Williams.

SOFTBALL | Per the official site, head coach Shannon Hays has hired South Carolina assistant Chrissy Schoonmaker to be the new assistant coach. LAJ's Tommy Maggelsen talks with Schoonmaker about what she'll add to the program.

GOLF | Congrats to Kim Kaufman as she's in the top five at the Royale Cup Canadian Amateur Championship!

FOOTBALL RedRaiderSportscom takes a look at the offensive line and they've projected the starters. If anyone knows, it's RRS.com.

Athlon ranks the Top 50 players in the Big 12 and Texas Tech only gets in three players on the list: QB Seth Doege, OL LaAdrian Waddle, and WR Darrin Moore.

You can join the Football Outsiders folks at a SB Nation chat today at noon eastern. I bought the Football Outsiders 2012 Almanac and it's worth the $5 without question. You can also check out SB Nation's Big 12 preview with Connelly.

Don't blame Tuberville? Wha? FoxSports Tully Corcoran (in case you are curious, his bio says that he is from Kansas in case you think he might be biased) writes this:

Maybe there was something in that peculiarity that just worked out there, something inherently Leacherous. And maybe that will be impossible to duplicate.

Or maybe you don't need that. Maybe in a couple years Tuberville will have his recruiting classes all tuned up and you'll go out there and the Red Raiders will just stuff your running game and throw touchdown passes off play-action and beat you 24-17 and there will be nothing the least bit weird about it.

DMN's Mike Graham has two short articles about QB Seth Doege as a team leader and why LB Terrance Bullitt's move from safety to linebacker makes sense.

Weekend listening: 1340 The Fan's Jack Dale talks with Joe Barnes (the QB under the 1973 Carlen-led team), QB Ron Reeves (I think his daughter is a new basketball assistant), Jimmy Carmichael and Sonny Cumbie.

Meet the two deep continues with DE Jackson Richards:
