Texas Tech Football:
Lots of news this morning, most of which I may not be able to really dive into until tomorrow.
LAJ's Don Williams starts with an article on offensive lineman, Chris Olson. Coach Bicknell and staff is having trouble determining which is the best position for Olson as he has the ability to play almost every position on the line. Bicknell has this on Olson:
The most interesting thing is that Olson mentions that techniques are changing as a result of the coaching change and I wonder if we'll see any discernable difference in the way the offensive line plays the game:
Don and Jeff Walker Huddle Up With Ruffin McNeil. I thought this was so appropriate with the passing of Coach Eddie Robinson and Coach McNeil had this on his first meeting with Coach Robinson:
There's also a focus on the position battle of cornerback. Chris Parker has the most experience while Jamar Wall and Marcus Bunton are honing in for a position.
The bit of news that jumped out at me? That Michael Crabtree is 6'-3" and 222 pounds? Seriously, he's that big? That's freaking awesome and only feeding my "Crabtree Infatuation".
Don's Red Raider Football Notebook has a couple important notes, but most importantly, is that Buddy Brumit has decided to quit the team after never getting over some back problems. Brandon Williams spent some time at defensive tackle, but no position change is imminent. More than likely, there's not a lot of options at DT and there's nothing wrong with checking out your options. Finally, there are some points on the up-coming scrimmage.

LAJ's George Watson has an article on the Red Raiders who believe that they are close to contending. This is a big series and much can be made up with some solid outings this weekend. George also previews the series between the Red Raiders and the Aggies.
