Podcasts. Check out your guys, Spencer and Michael, on 23 Personnel Podcast, a Texas Tech athletics podcast where food and sports clash at the goal line, as well as Keith Patrick and Dinger Derby, the only, yes only, podcast about Texas Tech baseball.

This is a story from ESPN about Aaron Rogers, but it also includes part of the story where Rogers and Graham Harrell goo to a frat party. Fun read.

ESPN’s Graham Hays ranks the most impactful women’s basketball transfers and Texas Tech’s Vivian Gray, via Oklahoma State, checks in at #8:

8. Vivian Gray, Texas Tech: The rest of the Big 12 didn’t figure out a way to stop the 6-foot-1 guard at Oklahoma State, so there’s little reason to imagine they’ll be more successful as the senior moves south to Texas Tech. For new coach Krista Gerlich, Gray, Chrislyn Carr and Lexi Gordon should be a good way to emerge from the program’s tumultuous offseason.

Texas Tech announced today that its student-athletes have formed the Black Student-Athlete Alliance, which is part of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. In conjunction with that, the social media platforms for Texas Tech athletics released stories, videos, and all sorts of things about black student-athletes and their stories.

I’ve taken a shit-ton of heat for telling you that yes, I do believe that black lives matter. I’ve been called a Marxist and I really don’t even know what that means. Regardless, I can say with some degree of certainty that if you support any sort of athletics, whether it be professional or collegiate, that you will be directly supporting individuals who support black lives matter in some form or fashion.

Every dollar that you spend, every time you tune in on your TV to watch, every click that you make, every video that you check out on your phone, every logo’d article of clothing that you buy, will put a bit into the pockets of those individuals. For whatever reason, this seems to create issues here and all sorts of places, but every click here supports the same ideal that these players do. At some point, these players are going to receive a share of the income from the athletic department and even now they are benefited by receiving scholarships which are paid for by donations and television contracts, so as long as you are prepared to accept that, then this won’t affect you in the least.
