Your daily dose of all things Texas Tech athletics.

Leading Off

Running Headband Endorsement. I sweat a lot when I run and I’ve struggled with finding something that keeps the sweat out of my eyes when I do run. The one thing that I’ve found that works is the Halo II headband. This is not a paid endorsement, just a recommendation of something that works. It is a very light neoprene type of material with a band that goes right above your eyes that does a really good job of keeping the sweat out. I suppose that the other question is if I really wear a headband and in the summer time absolutely yes

Preseason Rankings. SB Nation’s Mike Rutherford takes a look at the Big 12 and has a 100 day out ranking of the Big 12 teams, the biggest surprise is that Oklahoma State is 5th (they’re going to be better) but has Texas Tech 2nd overall:

Quietly last season, Davide Moretti became the only player in the history of the Big 12 to shoot at least 50 percent from the floor, 50 percent three, and 90 percent from the free-throw line in a season. There shouldn’t be anything quiet about Moretti’s junior season. He’ll have fresh and significant help in the form of top 50 recruit Jahmius Ramsey and Virginia Tech grad transfer Chris Clarke, an imposing inside presence who was suspended for all of last season.

Kansas is picked 1st and they are absolutely loaded, especially inside. Going to be a blast in 100 days.

Women’s Football Clinic. I think there is still a possibility of walk-ups for the Women’s Football Clinic tonight at 6:00 p.m. if any ladies want to go and if you were to go, take some photos and maybe we could collaborate on a post, kind of like Lil Nas X and BTS’ RM have recently collaborated. I dunno.

Ranking Big 12 Schedules. AthlonSports’ Allen Kenney ranked which Big 12 team has the toughest Big 12 schedule with West Virginia 1st, Texas 2nd, and Texas Tech 3rd:

The Red Raiders have the distinction of playing at both Oklahoma and Texas, the consensus top teams in the conference. With five road trips on the conference slate, first-year head coach Matt Wells should prepare for a rough introduction to the Big 12. Add in a road trip to Arizona, and Wells deserves a pass in his first season in Lubbock.
