Wednesday Morning Links at Viva The Matadors | 2013-04-24

Morning links: odds and ends, tennis, golf, track and field, baseball, college football playoff and football.

ODDS AND ENDS | Good stuff about the money raised for football staffer, Jennie Bailey and the football teams have supported her through the years.

TENNIS | So the tennis team is doing well. They have seven ladies on the Academic All-Big 12 team, they fall (I write that sarcastically) to #17 in the country, and they placed five of nine ladies on the Big 12 position titles. The DT summarizes all of the accolades.

GOLF | The Big 12 Championship had to cancel Tuesday's rounds and hope to get back to things today.

TRACK AND FIELD | The track team has both men and women athletes in the top 20 of the longest sports acronym ever, the USTFCCCA rankings.

BASEBALL | The baseball team has now won two in a row with a 6-1 win over New Mexico State last night. The LAJ and DT recap the win.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF | I have no idea how the College Football Playoff is going to trademark the totally generic phrase "college football playoff". Someone is going to get paid for that and I wish them luck. A lot of luck. So the College Football Playoff is a thing and you can go vote on a logo. CBS Sports writes about how the Big 12 is doing this whole playoff thing its own way. SI's Stewart Mandel writes about how the CFP is replacing the BCS and is better. SBN notes that Cowboys Stadium may be first in line to be to host the championship.

FOOTBALL | ESPN has their Big 12 recruiting scorecard and it has Texas Tech as the #2 team in the Big 12 after this weekend, but this means nothing at this point of the process. 247 Sports has early enrollees that have made an impact this spring and includes QB Davis Webb. Last, but not least, the Big 12 had all of the coaches on a conference call and as a result, so was head coach Kliff Kingsbury. The LAJ summarizes and he talked about time management, RB Quinton White, QB Michael Brewer, the defensive front seven, and how he really needs to do something before all of this ancillary stuff happens.
