A huge congratulations to Coach Larry Hays who notched career victory #1,500 in Texas Tech's 10-5 win over Texas A&M Corpus-Christi. So much to get to this morning, but let's get to the game first.

Now onto Coach Hays. LAJ's George Watson recaps yesterday's game and has a number of quotes from Coach Hays. Here's Hays:

"They're all the same," Hays said. "I'm excited about this one like I was about the one (Tuesday) and the thing is I'm worried about the next one. Just because there's a number on them doesn't mean anything.

"I'm lucky to be able to come to the park every day. I'm a grateful person and really appreciate the opportunity just to do things like this. Every game is special to me and they're all the same."

The LAJ takes a look at some of the coaching milestones in Coach Hays' career.
