Make sure and check out the first link above for a full schedule and the second link for the best games.  I'd also suggest Turfburner's Jay Beck, who has a good preview of Week 5 in the Big 12.  And in case you've forgotten, I'm linking to all of this stuff is my small and feeble attempt to not link to ESPN.  Not because they don't have information, but because they don't report any new information and we can all find previews and breaking stories from other sources.  You've got to help me not help ESPN.

Tommy Tuberville- You can’t be a one team league | Yahoo Sports Radio
Pretty interesting interview with Tim Brando and Tommy Tuberville, he does say that the Big 12 can't be a one team league and he also says that he personally doesn't have a problem with the Longhorn Network, but things changed when it was revealed that they wanted to add a conference game.  Also, Brando is proud of himself for giving Tubs his nickname, Riverboat Gambler.  Very proud of himself.

Texas Tech-Kansas fast facts | Red Raiders | Tech tests KU's struggling defense | Red Raiders
Nothing special here, but I did want to link to the pre-game depth charts.  For those of you curious about where DT Delvon Simmons is, well he's listed as the #2 defensive tackle behind DT Kerry Hyder and CB Derrick Mays kept his job for at least another week as he wasn't passed over by CB Jarvis Phillips.  Other than that, I couldn't find much, if anything different.

Under Armour, Texas Tech Team Up For - Texas Tech Red Raiders Official Athletic Site
Not being in the cotton industry, so I feel like I definitely don't know anything about this partnership, but it seems like a good idea as Under Armour is trying to use cotton instead of synthetics in their clothing.  Under Armour is the only brand that I can think of that has a Charged Cotton type of program and products that predominately features cotton rather than synthetic material.  I just wish their stuff wasn't so expensive.

WVU notebook: Coach deems Mountaineer Mantrip a success  - Sports - The Charleston Gazette - West Virginia News and Sports -
Did you know that West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen implemented a new tradition at West Virginia?  Much like Raider Walk, Holgorsen implemented West Virginia's walk to the stadium called Mountaineer Mantrip. YEAGER: Random Thoughts - 9/30
Yeager has some random thoughts including that Texas Tech has really only had a good defense (in relatively recent years) twice, from 1982 through 1986 and from 1994 through 1998.

Really terrific stuff from Bill Connelly.

Big 12 puts merger, expansion ideas on hold, awaits Missouri's commitment - NCAA Basketball - Sporting News
Don't get excited about new schools or plucking teams from different conferences or anything like that.  We're all better off just observing the madness.

College football: Picks of the Week (and realignment tidbits) | College Hotline
Everyone's favorite West Coast conference realignment writer, John Wilner, writes that the internet reports that BYU will join the Big 12 this weekend are dead-wrong as the LDS is having its General Conference this weekend, which is apparently a big deal.
