Texas Tech Football:
The NFL Combine was this past weekend and Gabe Hall was one of two offensive linemen to run a sub-5.00 40 yard dash at 4.91. Manuel Ramirez and UT's Justin Blalock each bench pressed 225 lbs. 40 times. That's far and away better than their competition. Joe Filani bench pressed 225 lbs. 17 times. As I find links verifying all of this I'll post them. Without knowing a thing about the draft I have to believe that Hall greatly improved his stock by being so mobile, and Ramirez improved his stock by being one of the two strongest players at the combine.
Texas Tech has posted the 2007 spring roster.
I'll be posting DTN's review and preview for the offensive line and for wide receivers later this week. There's certainly a lot of discussion that could go on with each of those positions. I also worked on the defensive line this weekend freshmen will play on the defensive line, I can't imagine where the more talented ones won't see the field.

I've been having trouble linking to the official Texas Tech site, and the only links I've been able to include is the box score. I guess that means that you'll have to rely on George Watson to recap each game, which is a good thing as far as I'm concerned. Here is George's latest game story.
Tech travels to Albuquerque, New Mexico on Tuesday to face the New Mexico Lobos. Game is scheduled to begin at 4:00 p.m.
