Texas Tech Thursday Morning Notes - Catching the Ball Edition

Double-T Nation News:

Around the blogosphere, we have a few items. KU blog Rock Chalk Talk takes a look at the teams that he thinks will finish 9 through 7 in men's Big 12 basketball while college basketball blog Rush the Court checks in on the Big 12 and thinks Texas Tech is a bubble team.

In football blogging, Flags Over Raiderland is trying to convince wide receiver recruits that you don't have to go to a big school to be a great wide receiver in the NFL. I seriously doubt that recruits read this, but think about what is the most important attribute of a receiver? Catching the ball.

Texas Tech Football:

I'm a little bit late, but FWST's David Thomas looks back and the winners, losers, stars and goats of the bowl season and thought that the Gator Bowl was the 3rd best bowl. Also from the FWST, Wendell Barnhouse ranks Texas Tech as the 13th best team in the nation in 2008 and additionally muses that the plus-one is a certain shot at the BCS stronghold. A good read for sure.
