Walker to Start Radio Show in Houston. Wondering whatever happened to Chris Walker, the former interim head coach for Texas Tech after Billy Gillispie was canned? Well, he’s starting his own radio talk show with Jim Hicks on 1520 AM in Houston.
Gordon to Likely Choose Seton Hall. I think on Friday morning, it was mentioned that Texas Tech as in the running for a shooting guard, Eron Gordon. It appears that Gordon will choose Seton Hall:
2016 3* SG Eron Gordon’s Crystal Ball is 100% to Seton Hall. Expect him to be a Pirate next year.

4:00 pm on Friday. It shouldn’t be a surprise as Baylor regents received the sexual assault report but nothing has been released to the public. I somewhat forgot about this because Baylor released it essentially at 4:00 pm on Friday the perfect time to sweep it under the rug so no one remembers you actually did anything about it. And of course, Baylor didn’t release the results either.
