LAJ’s Don Williams writes about how the start for Gary Moore is meaningful for him because he will be playing against one of his teammates from Clarksville, CB H.B. Rosser, from their days of playing basketball:

“He was my point guard,” Moore said. “He was my quarterback in high school. I was a receiver. Me and H.B., we’ve been friends for a long time, as long as I can remember. We were so close, for a while we started calling each other brothers.”

Williams also has a general sports notebook with one real football note, that Ondre Pipkins has good feet, so there’s that.

RRS’s Aaron Dickens recpas last night’s radio show with Chris Level, Kliff Kingsbury and David Gibbs. I found the bit with Gibbs the most interesting, he hasn’t talked very much all spring and he may not talk all that much this season. There’s a lot there, but here’s a bit from Gibbs:

… Gibbs said that Ondre Pipkins is as big and athletic as any nose guard in the Big 12. “He’ll have a great year for us. Knock on wood, hope he stays healthy.”

… Gibbs said that Kolin Hill is one of the defense’s better players. “His name will be known by the time he leaves Texas Tech.”
