SOFTBALL | I missed this from a couple of days ago, but congrats to the softball team for receiving votes at the end of the season leaving this team a top 30 team in the country.

BASEBALL | Congrats to 2B/OF Jamodrick McGruder for being named to the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association third team All-American!

More congrats to OF Barrett Barnes for signing with the Pittsburgh Pirates.

MEN'S BASKETBALL | The men's basketball teleconference yesterday, but as of 4:45 am, the Big 12 website is down and I can't listen to the audio. Oh well. Thankfully, LAJ's Nick Kosmider has a recap and somewhat like last year, head coach Billy Gillispie is heaping a lot of praise on his returning players and singled out F Jaye Crockett:

"He used to want to be one of the guys," Gillispie said. "Now he wants to be the guy. I think he wants to lead others with him. When you don’t have as much success as you want, and Jaye’s used to winning, I think he figures out, ‘Hey, this is what we need to do and this is my responsibility.’ I think he has really stepped to the forefront as far as taking a leadership role."

Kosmider also touched on F Wannah Bail's performance at the Texas vs. Oklahoma game played recently where Bail scored 24 for the game. I also appreciated how Kosmider responded to some of the comments in this article so that's pretty cool.

FOOTBALL | AthlonSports predicts the Big 12 finish and it's not looking good for our beloved Red Raiders. Thankfully, these are just predictions.

College Football News has a preview of Texas Tech that is quite lengthy, but I have not yet read.

LAJ's David Just writes an article about former defensive tackle Gene Darr and how he upset then ranked Arkansas. I am trying to figure out why they did this, but maybe I don't need to do this.

Former Red Raider Graham Harrell talks about how Aaron Rodgers is tutoring him in Green Bay.
