NCAA Tournament:

An excellent article by DMN's Tim MacMahon on the effect that Coach Knight has had at Texas Tech. For those of you who do not believe Knight has made an impact on the program:

Documents obtained through the state's open records law show the program produced a profit of $386,523.84 in fiscal year 2000, the final full fiscal year of former coach James Dickey's tenure. Under Knight, the program's profit has been more than quadruple that figure each of the last three fiscal years and cleared seven figures the last four. It peaked at more than $1.9 million in 2004.

Wow. That's a lot of money.

LAJ's Jeff Walker has an article on the 1985 Texas Tech squad that faced BC and lost on a last second shot by Michael Adams.

This little gem was passed onto me by DTN user RedBlooded and Hogs Haven author, Knight To Cats. I will do everything in my power to keep this from happening. I promise.

Chip Brown wants the Big 12 to do well, and so do I.

According to ESPN's the Sportsguy Texas Tech is one of his least favorite teams.

You can also view the video preview of every team by Joe Lunardi (scroll down to find Tech). EDIT: I tried to watch the video, but it would never load, so if you're short on time, you could probably skip this, plus, Joe Lunardi is not pleasant to look at so early in the morning.

Sportsline actually has a really nice preview of Thursday's game.

If you're interested, check out all of SI's columnists tournament picks. I thumbed through a few of them and no one is picking either Tech or BC to get past Georgetown.

Texas Tech Baseball:

Congrats to senior pitcher Colt Hynes who was named the Big 12 Pitcher of the Week.

Texas Tech faces the Nebraska Cornhuskers Thursday and Friday which opens both Nebraska's and the Red Raiders' Big 12 seasons. LAJ's George Watson breaks down the Huskers. You know better than to expect a preview from me, but at the very least I'll link to box scores and to the fine folks over at Corn Nation as available.
