Pretty excited to have a good conversation with MikeTTU about recruiting dropping at 10:00 am.


Kellis Robinett’s Big 12 Report: Phil Forte proving his worth at Oklahoma State | The Wichita Eagle -- Texas Tech has two games to do some things, Kansas State on Wednesday and TCU this weekend.


Oklahoma hires Lincoln Riley as new OC, per reports - and Lincoln Riley could be ideal fit at Oklahoma - ESPN -- The second article mentions that OU coach Bob Stoops wanted someone to come in and run their system, which is what Josh Heupel wanted to do, but was told to run the ball more and then Heupel was fired. Good luck to Lincoln for every game but one. 
Big 12 recruiting scorecard - Big 12 Blog - ESPN -- Just something to watch as Texas Tech, heading into the final stretch of recruiting is sitting at 30th in the nation. 
A look back at key contributors from Texas Tech’s 2014 signing class | Dallas Morning News -- Speaking of recruiting, we have some look back at some of the key contributors of the 2014 class.  You could probably write a book on the key 2014 contributors.
Wes Welker not sure he’ll be back in Denver | ProFootballTalk -- Just hoping that Welker knows when to tip his hat and walk into the sunset with his wife.
Jim Harbaugh looking at uncommitted QB McLane Carter of Gilmer (Texas) | USA Today High School Sports | USA Today High School Sports -- Texas Tech I think would have contacted a bit sooner, but for the dead period.  Depending what recruiting service you like, Carter is closer to 6'3" rather than 6'1" and I still don't know if Carter can play or if he had a ton of terrific talent around him.  I'm glad I don't have to make these decisions.
