Texas Tech Basketball:
BON has it first, KD is leaving for the NBA and Rock Chalk Talk says that Julian Wright is also leaving for greener pastures, although RCT thinks he should come back.
Jay Jackson is participating in the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament. DraftExpress is covering the tournament and has this to say about Jackson (which by the way I think is spot-on):
I do want to get one thing off my chest about the coaching changes. Why is it that people are acting like this is the first time a coach has moved on to what they believe to be a better job? Doesn't this happen every year? Seriously, Coach Fran did it to Alabama and now Coach Gillispie did it to the Aggies. Turgeon will be doing it to Wichita State. Can't we all just accept that if we could double our salary, loyalty be damned, I'd take the new job and figure out later if I made a mistake? I know that it's happening at different schools which makes for easy stories for reporters, but this is not the first time coaches have changed schools. Also, I should clarify that I would have cried for an entire week had Coach Leach left for Miami and I would have been disappointed that he would have left, but I wouldn't have blamed him, not one bit. It would have sucked beyond belief, but it's life.
