Morning links: odds and ends, SEC Network, tennis, track and field, softball, baseball and football.

Odds and Ends

I'm out of town all weekend, so feel free to put your feet up on the ottoman and have a few.

The light tower on the southeast corner of Jones AT&T stadium had a bolt break off and there was a fear that it would break, which resulted in the football offices being evacuated. The DMN and DT are on the story.

SEC Network

From Team Speed Kills, they note that ESPN will own all of the SEC Network, which means that this is the exact same model that the Longhorn Network has? I think that's right, but not sure. This also means that ESPN owns a very large chunk of college football. Very large.

Tennis

Men's head coach Tim Siegel's tennis team finished ranked #51, 15-11 overall. This was Siegel's last year and will retire now that the year is over. Siegel is a great Red Raider.

Track and Field

The men and women track teams will be participating in the Big 12 Championships in Waco this weekend. Good luck! The LAJ previews the big weekend and the official site also has nine athletes named to the Academic All-Big 12.

Softball

Baylor won the first game of this three game series yesterday, 8-2. The series continues the next couple of days.

Baseball

The baseball team will host a three game series with Oklahoma St. this weekend. The LAJ writes that the baseball team needs to make some progress with two series remaining and the DT writes about this extended home stretch for Texas Tech.

Football

Welp, per the LAJ, there was a cell phone tower by Darrin Moore's house that was down and he couldn't make or receive phone calls after the NFL Draft. Luckily, he got an invite to the Cowboys rookie camp. Good luck!

The SAEN profiles TE Jace Amaro and his hope to have a break-out season this year.

I posted this in the comments yesterday, but wanted to link again, from SBN blog Arkansas Expats, they have a pretty good explanation as to why Arkansas cannot commit to the out of conference game being discussed.
