Campus Photos. Friend of the blog Totally Texas Tech’s TTURed has some new campus photos:

This group features shots of the Maddox Engineering Research Center (Former Mass Comm Building), the north end zone renovation at Jones AT&T Stadium, the practice bubble demolition, the Jerry Rawls College of Business Administration addition, the new Honors residence hall, the TTU Horticultural Garden, the new TTU System Building, and various other shots of campus.

Nearly 50 new photos.

Emoji Keyboard. Texas Tech released a new GIF and emoji keyboard yesterday, which is great for all of you millenials. I’ll admit that generally speaking I generally can’t interpret what certain emojis mean because I just don’t want to try to figure out what message you’re trying to convey. I get the high-five and the beer emojis and a few others, but I’m pretty limited.

Botros Named CFO. Texas Tech tabbed Jonathan Botros as the CFO yesterday.



Texas Tech Falls to West Virginia; Faces Oklahoma at Noon. Texas Tech fell to West Virginia, 9-4 yesterday afternoon and Texas Tech will now play Oklahoma in a win or go home situation today at noon. We’ll have a preview up before the game.


Camps. Chris Beard announced the summer camp schedule yesterday, so if you’ve got kids, go check it out.


Big 12’s All-Time Tight Ends. ESPN’s Max Olson ranks the Big 12’s all-time tight ends and Jace Amaro checks in at #3:

3. Jace Amaro, Texas Tech (2011-13): Amaro found a perfect fit as the over-the-middle threat in Kliff Kingsbury’s offense in 2013 and put together a season so dominant that he had to be high on this list. He caught 106 passes for 1,352 yards, picked up first downs on two-thirds of his catches and scored seven TDs as a junior before entering the NFL draft. Amaro caught eight or more passes in 10 of his 13 games that year. There’s no good reason why the All-American didn’t win the Mackey Award for that performance.
