Good morning everyone.  I hope you enjoyed your weekend. I grilled out last night and Fitsum was barefoot running around. Because of the great weather, I worked in the yard and house for most of the day so I'm running behind a bit for content this morning.  Win the day.

FOOTBALL

Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury on not signing a QB, why he expects great things from Kyler Murray at Texas A&M | Dallas Morning News -- Nothing ground-breaking here, but here's a quote to make this post look longer:

"As you know, you build relationship with these kids for years - then things change; different people sign different places. Teams have good years, teams have bad years. So there's a lot of dynamics that go into it. Football's different than most sports. You continue recruiting kids long after they're committed other places. That's just kind of how it's been for a long time. At the end of the day, you hope you can hang onto yours and hopefully sign away a couple of people that you have had your eye on."
