Writing about a ukulele player, the women's tennis team is set host their NCAA Regional today, the women's golf team is making a move in Norman and Kingsbury is interviewed by ESPN with miscellaneous links and previews of Texas Tech and West Virginia.

Odds and Ends

Last night I got sucked into an hour documentary on ukulele phenom Jake Shimabukuro, Life on Four Strings. I am fascinated by talented people and how they are such a huge deal and that applies to Jake. I was mesmerized and just couldn't believe the sound he produced from the ukulele. Crazy talented and I never once thought in my life that I would have sat down for an hour on a Friday night to watch a documentary about a ukulele player, but I did. Go search on YouTube. He's just incredible.

Tennis

It's about time. The women's tennis team is set to host their NCAA Regional today and will play the College of Charleston no later than 2:00 pm. The LAJ has a story on the tennis team and here is a video of the two doubles players, Samantha Adams and Kenna Kilgo that was fun. Good luck and WreckEm!

Golf

The women's golf team moved up to 6th place yesterday in their NCAA Regional in Norman. The LAJ has a story on their move up the leaderboard. Keep working!

Football

Just to update on conference things, which I know that you already know all of this, but Oklahoma St. QB Wes Lunt has transferred and backup QB Kendal Thompson was arrested for drinking and driving and other stuff.

Head coach Kliff Kingsbury was interviewed by someone at ESPN and you can watch the video. I didn't see anything that really stood out to me.

CBS Sports reports that each Big 12 team is set to receive $22 - $25 million for their conference payout.

I finally got around to subscribing to SAEN's Tim Griffin's blog and he previewed West Virginia and Texas Tech on his two-a-days posts. Griffin thinks that Texas Tech will go 6-6 this year.
