ODDS AND ENDS | Again, I don't normally do golf, but congrats to the Texas Tech women golfers who were seeded 10th in the West Region of the NCAA Tournament.

RED RAIDER BASKETBALL | Per @RcsSports (I think they were the first one with the information from what I can tell, specifically at 4:52 yesterday afternoon) that PG Josh Gray has committed to Texas Tech. There's a post scheduled for later this morning, but this is three top 150 players in this nine player class. One of the nine is not going to qualify academically (most likely Michael Carey) and another player is paying his own way this year, which means that there are seven new scholarship players. We know that SF Jaron Nash has transferred and we're probably waiting on some others to do the same. A team is only allowed 13 scholarship players, which means that only six players from last year's team will return. Thus, you'll have to pick six of the following players: Kevin Wagner, Deshon Minnis, Toddrick Gotcher, Ty Nurse, Javarez Willis, Terran Petteway, Jaye Crockett, Jordan Tolbert, Kader Tapsoba and Dejan Kravic.

TEXAS TECH SOFTBALL | The Williams and Hyatt Show had on Emily Bledsoe, go give it a listen.

TEXAS TECH BASEBALL | The Williams and Hyatt Show had on Rusty Shellhorn, go check it out.


Texas Tech plays a game against New Mexico St. tonight (official site) and LAJ's George Watson writes that Texas Tech hopes to keep the momentum going.

TEXAS TECH FOOTBALL | Turfburner's Jay Beck has a bit on WR Bradley Marquez and his tweet about his damaged windshield from a couple of days ago. Yikes.


SI.com's Stewart Mandel has a bit on how the proposed four-team playoff might work:

Multiple sources with direct knowledge of last week's discussions in South Florida have confirmed to SI.com that the new favored proposal for a four-team playoff within the bowl system would place the two semifinal games at the traditional anchor bowls of the No. 1 and 2 teams' conferences. For example, No. 1 Alabama of the SEC would host the No. 4 team in the Sugar Bowl, while No. 2 USC of the Pac-12 would host the No. 3 team in the Rose Bowl.
