A couple of miscellaneous things. 1) I had mentioned Todd Petty in a post as he had signed another tennis player and someone mentioned that they had to look up who he was (I also misspelled his name, typing “Toddy”). I always try to put a link to the story that I’m writing about so that you can click on it and see for yourself. None of this news is me breaking it, I’m just aggregating it. 2) I mentioned that I’m thinking about switching up the theme and someone mentioned if there could be a FanPost section and I still do not know how to do this. The closest thing you could get to something like that would be forums and I think that takes up a lot of the juice that I pay for and then there would need to be someone that monitors them. I really don’t know how to set up a separate portion of this site for you all to have a voice. I know the comments can be a bit buggy at times, but I do pay for the “no ads” version and I think I get a bit better service as well. I’m doing the best I can and if I can ever think of a solution, you all will be the first to know.
The softball team and head coach Adrian Gregory signed former Missouri catcher Trenity Edwards and will be eligible immediately (TexasTech). Edwards hit .245 as a freshman with 27 RBI and 5 home runs.
The Lady Raiders will travel to Gainesville and play Florida as part of the SEC/Big 12 Challenge on December 2nd (TexasTech).
Congrats to the men’s golf team for being one of 25 programs to earn All-Academic team status and President’s Special Recognition from the Golf Coaches Association of America (TexasTech).

Congrats to Jah’Shawn Johnson for being named to the Thorpe Award Watch List for the nation’s best defensive back (TexasTech). The odd thing, since errbody seems to get on these lists is that Dakota Allen wasn’t on the Butkus Award Watch List so go ahead and put them in your figurative crosshairs.
Former head coach Mike Leach was in town to sign his book, which is sorta odd since the books were released a few years ago (usually, book signings are relatively new books I thought) and if you want to check it out, here’s EverythingLubbock.
