Texas Tech Wednesday Morning Notes - Throw Tomatoes At Me Edition

Texas Tech Football:

We have a little news on the UCLA coaching rumors, one of them involve Mike Leach and the other does not. FWST's Dwain Price had some college notes yesterday, but I missed this as Texas Tech's spokesman Chris Cook confirmed that UCLA has not contacted Texas Tech to talk with Leach:

Leach could not be reached for comment, and Tech spokesman Chris Cook said UCLA hasn't asked for permission to interview the coach.

Walker points to the lack of a post game and mentions Suljagic's injury, however, I can't help but think that Suljagic's injury is the least of the teams' concerns, because I think it's the inability of the team, in particular the post players inability to create down low, to score that's the issue. Suljagic being more of a defensive player wouldn't seem to solve the problem.

DMN's Brandon George reports that Coach Knight will be back on the bench tonight.
