New Campus Photos. TTU Red at Totally Texas Tech with some terrific new campus photos, in particular the beautification projects on campus, including the main entrance and the dairy barn area, as well as some photos of the seat replacement at Jones AT&T Stadium.
Baseball Loses Game 1 to K-State. Texas Tech fell to Kansas State yesterday, 5-3. I’ve updated the weekend post with commentary and links to the recap and box score.
Women’s Tennis Goes for Big 12 Title. Huge day for Todd Petty and the #15 women’s tennis team as have a match against #19 TCU at 10:00 am this morning in the season finale for the Big 12 title. Baylor needs to beat Kansas and Kansas State to have a share of the title if Texas Tech wins. Go get ’em.
Men’s Tennis Take on #2 Baylor. A huge weekend for the men’s tennis team as they host Baylor and with a win, would guarantee the #2 seed in the Big 12 Championship.
JP Energy Red Raider Shootout. The Rawls Course, for the first time in its existence, will host the inaugural JP Energy Red Raider Shootout, which is a 36-hole match-play event with #2 Texas, #10 Texas Tech, #20 New Mexico and #32 TCU.
Softball Travels to Stillwater. The Texas Tech softball team will travel to Stillwater to play Oklahoma State starting today through Monday.
New Masked Rider. Congrats to Rachel McLelland who was named the new Masked Rider in yesterday’s Transfer of Reins and Passing of the Guns ceremony.
The Big Ten’s Big Proposal. Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany released a 12 page paper yesterday presenting the idea of freshman ineligibility and stating that the NCAA is a house of cards if education doesn’t come first. Meanwhile, you can ask Delany if starting the realignment game by grabbing Nebraska, Rutgers and Maryland had anything to do with education first.
As an aside, I have more football links, but I’m going to save them for a bit later. I’ve got to get to the grocery store and hopefully this will make 3 trips to the store that I’ll hear a Richard Marx tune.
