VIDEO BOARD RENDERING | This is just a rendering, nothing official, but a mock-up of the new video board and I love how it looks like the video board is going to blend in with the rest of the campus' architecture. Click on the photos for a bigger look.
POST PRACTICE THOUGHTS | I didn't have time to do any sort of transcripts today, but I have a handful of links to catch you up: LAJ's Don Williams; 1340 The Fan's Rob Brennan; RRS.com's Aaron Dickens; and RP.com's Joshua Koch. Lots of good and different information and there is a scrimmage today.
WASHINGTON READY | LAJ's Nick Kosmider profiles RB DeAndre Washington, who says that he's ready to get hit and is almost 100%. Here's Stephens:
"I feel good now," he said. "I think the first week we were just trying to get the feel for everything, just trying to get your feet back on the ground. But now I just feel like I’m picking up where I left off last year."
BIG 12 PREVIEW | I very much enjoy Yahoo!Sports Mike Hugenin's writing and I think he does a good job of being knowledgeable of just about every program and Hugenin is previewing the Big 12. There's lot of good information there. Also, Hugenin ranks the top receivers in the nation and Darrin Moore makes the cut.
MISCELLANEOUS | Barking Carnival's Colorado Ag gives the state of the union of Texas Tech -- make sure and go over there and give your two cents . . . Pre-Snap Read's Paul Myerberg ranks Kansas St. at #17 and it's an excellent preview . . . The Smoking Musket provides you with a visitor's guide to Morgantown with some fine dining options . . . Yahoo!Sports also ranks the top 25 team entrances in college football and Texas Tech is at #10 . . .
