Texas Tech Football:

Texas Tech and SMU have agreed to move their game next year to Labor Day, September 3, 2007 in Dallas. The game will be broadcast on ESPN and will provide for a little bit exposure for the football team on an otherwise uneventful day.

Texas Tech Basketball:

BearMeat is pleading with Coach Knight to hang it up. If I were more creative I'd write a similar fairytale or perhaps an open letter, but I just don't have it in me. Although very, very reliable sources have notified me that Coach Knight is an avid reader of BearMeat and is planning a raid of the ALICO building to rob the BearMeat staff of their typewriters and correction tape.

As of yesterday morning, Sportsline's Gary Parrish believes that Tech receives an at-large bid.

2007 High School Commitment Update:

The high schoolers are right in the middle of playoffs and there's a nice story on the Plano victory over Carter. Texas Tech signee John Roberson (5-11) scored 16.

Duncanville's D'Walyn Roberts (6-7) helped the Panthers to beat Jesuit, where Roberts scored 16, and didn't help so much as Roberts scored 1 point against Colleyville Heritage, but still managed the victory.

Kingwood's Mike Singletary scored 24 to lead the way against Deer Park and had 34 against FB Marshall. We haven't heard as much about Singletary, but as I followed the box score throughout the year for Singletary there were a number of games where he just didn't seem to score. I have a feeling that his coach is letting him loose during the playoffs.

Future Texas Tech big-man, Ricardo De Bem (6-10, Western Nebraska CC), has had some pretty decent lines recently:

Opponent Rbs. Ast. Pts.
E. Wyoming 5 0 21
Laramie County 9 2 14
Casper 9 0 10
E. Wyoming 10 1 10

De Bem is averaging 17.7 points a game and 7.22 rebounds a game.
