REMEMBERING JACK DALE
# Thank you, Jack | Lubbock Online | Lubbock Avalanche-Journal
# Totally Texas Tech: Saddle Tramps Honor Long-Time Broadcaster Jack Dale
Jack Dale was laid to rest yesterday, rest in peace.  And if you needed to know how big of an impact Jack Dale had at Texas Tech, here's former Texas Tech football coach Spike Dykes at yesterday's service:

"I feel today just like I felt when John Wayne died, when my daddy died," Dykes said in a eulogy. "One of my real, real idols in this world is no longer with us. The funny thing about all that, though, is the people’s lives he touched will never, ever forget Jack Dale."

Make sure and check out the pictures from Totally Texas Tech where the Saddle Tramps wrapped Will Rogers and Soapsoads in all black.  Dale meant a lot to Texas Tech, I hope he is remembered throughout this year, perhaps with a logo, maybe a microphone, on the player's helmets or jerseys.

As @RedRaiderSports reported yesterday Florida transfer Javares McRoy must sit out this season due to trans[f]er rules. 4 to play 4 after that.

Ranking the Big 12's top 10 receivers - Big 12 Blog - ESPN
The Ubbenator ranks the receivers and says that IR Alexander Torres is the #9 receiver in the Big 12.  Given Torres' injuries from last year (a back injury that didn't really ever get better) I'm okay with this, but I think that by the end of the year, Torres will be better than ninth in the conference.
