1. Rivera Wins 800m at U.S. Junior Champion! Wow! Congrats to freshman Nick Rivera for winning the 800m and is now the US Junior Champion! Wreck'Em!

2. Curry Takes Significant Pay Decrease | I don't know what else to make of this, but former head coach Kristy Curry took a $350,000 pay decrease to take the Alabama job. This is likely one of those deals where job security likely was more important than the amount.

3. More New Photos | Totally Texas Tech has new photos of the video board going up.
