Notes, Links and other info --- April 5, 2012

(Editor's Note: with Seth out of pocket today, I thought I would post some info )

Tennis: Louis Fabre, who is currently ranked #10 in his native country of France, has signed to play for Texas Tech.

The #23 Texas Tech Men's Tennis team is hosting #25 Texas A&M on Saturday, April 7, 2012. The Red Raiders (12-6, 1-0 Big 12) host the Aggies (12-9, 1-1 Big 12) Saturday night at 6 p.m. at the McLeod Tennis Center. Admission is free and there will be free food, prizes and an Easter egg hunt. Also the first 100 fans will receive a Texas Tech t-shirt.

Softball: The Lady Red Raiders head for Norman to play #5/7 Oklahoma in a 3 game series.

Baseball: Tech host #25 Texas in a 3 game series

Red Raiders will start Trey Masek (Thurs.), Duke von Schamann (Fri.) and John Neely (Sat.).

Tech is 14-4 at home this season while the Longhorns, who are coming off two losses in a three-game series with Cal in Round Rock, Texas last weekend, enter this series with a 5-4 record on the road.

Off-Topic: UT is looking to create their own School of Medicine. This article from the Statesman and others over the past 2 years have pushed for UT to get out from behind the 8-ball and create a Medical School. UT is under pressure to do this since Texas Tech and A&M already have medical schools. Texas Tech not only has the UHSC in Lubbock but have major complexes in El Paso, the Paul L. Foster School of Medicine, a Nursing School and the University Medical Center of El Paso (formerly known as R.E. Thomason General Hospital). Texas Tech's growth of their Medical School has had many road blocks. The Texas Legislature many times has voted down funding or reduced it. I am just wondering if UT would have so many road blocks plus they can tap into their multibillion-dollar Permanent University Fund for a loan or cash, or a combination of the two.
