I always like keeping up with NASA stuff and Texas Tech is set to send another alumnus, Joseph M. Acaba, to the ISS to begin his third space flight. Acaba earned his masters in Education, Curriculum and Instruction from Texas Tech in 2015.

The Province’s Cam Tucker writes about Micah Awe, who hosted Dakota Allen when he committed to Texas Tech and talked about how good of a guy that Allen is, but also talked about that Texas Tech defense:
“That’s another thing that makes me mad — how they always say the Texas Tech defence is so bad,” said Awe. “We actually have a lot of talent on that defence.
“Texas Tech is one of those schools. It’s tightly knit. We’re not the biggest school. We’re also not the smallest school. But Texas is just football and oil, is what I say. After you play with a team like that, there’s not much to do outside of Lubbock … other than be together and hang out together. It’s something that all of us former players take to heart. I love it.”
Miscellaneous . . . LandGrant Gauntlet’s Chris Ross his Big 12 rankings and has Texas Tech this week . . . also from LGG, Patrick Mahorn has what he learned in week one in the Big 12 . . . SI has their bowl predictions and they have Texas Tech playing Louisiana Tech in the Heart of Dallas Bowl . . . via 24/7 Sports, the NCAA may vote to allow players who are transferring to be eligible immediately so long as they are good with their grades and this could only become a disaster . . .
