Texas Tech Thursday Morning Notes - Something Else Edition

Texas Tech Football:

LAJ's Don Williams has a story about Virginia wide receiver Staton Jobe, who happens to be the son of former Red Raider, Jeff Jobe (and participant in the 1973 Gator Bowl). I didn't know this, but the younger Jobe was recruited by Texas Tech and was going to be a part of Michael Crabtree's 2006 recruiting class. Here's offensive coordinator Dana Holgorsen on Staton Jobe:

"He was a guy that we strongly considered scholarshiping,'' Holgorsen said, "but we couldn't do it based on the fact that we weren't going to take that many receivers. He came to our camp two years in a row, and we really liked what he could do, which is why we brought him on an official visit and why we thought he could play.''

Texas Tech Basketball:

Apparently, Coach Knight is upset at the Associated Press for reporting on the shooting incident and the Columbia Tribune's Steve Walentik reports that Coach Knight was asked a question by the AP and had this to say:

I don't have any interest in talking to the Associated Press," Knight said. "Let's just go on to something else." After a brief pause, he added, "Don't put any questions from the Associated Press through to me again."

It never occurred to me until this morning that it was the AP and Eric Finley, a writer for the Avalanche Journal, and not LAJ's Texas Tech basketball beat-writer Jeff Walker who reported on the shooting incident. Interesting.

College Football:

I thought this was interesting, FWST's Wendell Barnhouse talked a number of the participants in last week's ESPN College Football Awards show and asked them a number of questions, ranging from the fairness of sitting out a year when transferring, bowls or playoffs, paying players, etc. Good stuff.
