Texas Tech Thursday Morning Notes - Outside Range Edition

Double-T Nation News:

There are two articles that I want to highlight this morning, the first being Sports Illustrated's Austin Murphy's piece on Texas Tech's win over Texas. No blockquotes, this is a must read. This article is in this week's SI magazine.

Second, hat-tip to Vince,'s Terry Bowden writes that Texas Tech's win over Texas was no upset. Again, no blockquotes, this is certainly worth your time.

Not many local items out there today.

DT's Alex Ybarra with a Texas Tech Football Notebook. Nothing really noteworthy other than Captain Leach being nominated for the Bear Bryant College Coach of the Year Watch List by the Paul "Bear" Bryant Awards committee, as is Mike Gundy, Mack Brown and Bob Stoops.

Texas Tech Basketball:

LAJ's Jeff Walker hasn't written much about this year's squad but had some observations about the team in his blog, Above the Rim:

Damir Suljagic made some nice passes, took a steal and drove the length of the floor for a dunk (Can’t remember seeing that since his battle with injuries).

Michael Prince was very active on the boards early in practice, getting several tip-ins and offensive boards.

Freshman Corbin Ray is at full strength and showed some outside range.

Mike Singletary is vocal, could be the voice of the team at some point.
