Track & Field



Culver Offered. 2017 SG Jarrett Culver was offered by Texas Tech yesterday, the first offer under the Chris Beard era. Culver is from Coronado and his older brother Trey competes in the high jump for Texas Tech.


Kingsbury Visits Luke Siegel. This is really cool and sad all at the same time. This gets me choked up every time I think about it. Luke Siegel is the son of Tim Siegel, the former men’s tennis coach at Texas Tech. Luke was in a accident this past summer from driving a golf cart, injuring his head and now Luke is in a wheelchair and I don’t want to get into Luke’s diagnosis, but . Sunday Luke had his 10th birthday party and in attendance was Kliff Kingsbury as well as getting some video messages from Jace Amaro, Toddrick Gotcher, Elvis Andrus and New Orleans Saint and former Longhorn, David Thomas.

They’re So Angry. CBS Sports’ Tom Fornelli ranked the top five angriest college football fan bases and you’ll never guess who was ranked #1:

They may not take it this way, but I mean this as a compliment: Texas A&M fans are just a comically strange, wonderfully weird group of people. They get angry over some of the silliest things, can tell you everything you ever wanted to know (and more that you didn’t) about trademark law (the byproduct of supporting a school that sues everybody), and they can do it in a way which makes you wonder if they’re truly mad at you.

Don’t get me wrong, they very much are mad, but the one thing that stands out to me about most of the Mad Aggies I deal with is the lack of name-calling. They don’t cuss you out much, but they seem like the type to passive-aggressively insult you to your face with a giant smile on their face as another Mad Aggie slowly creeps up on you from behind with a hunting knife.

Well, yeah.

NCAA to Revisit Satellite Camp Ban. Via CollegeFootballTalk, Oliver Luck, now working for the NCAA, said that the NCAA would revisit the satellite camp ban.

Miscellaneous. DMN’s Mike DuPont looks at the special teams for Texas Tech and he also takes a look at the secondary . . .
