ESPN ranks the Big 12 defensive linemen and Texas Tech ranks dead last:

10. Texas Tech: The Red Raiders fielded the worst defense in the Big 12 — and by default, the worst defense in the Power 5. It was possibly the worst defense in all of the FBS, ranking last in yards allowed per game and among the bottom five in numerous categories. Tech lost its most talented linemen, Breiden Fehoko, who is transferring, plus productive tackle Ondre Pipkins and end Kris Williams. Kolin Hill, Zach Barnes and Mychealon Thomas return in addition to a group of yet-to-emerge prospects that includes Broderick Washington, Joe Wallace and North Texas transfer Eli Howard.

Yesterday, Kansas State head coach Bill Snyder announced that he has throat cancer and he is undergoing treatment:

“I have been diagnosed with throat cancer and have been receiving outpatient treatment at the KU Medical Center for about three weeks and am getting along very well. The doctors and staffs at both KU Med and M.D. Anderson (in Houston, Texas) have been great; working so very well together to finalize the overall treatment plan which is being conducted in Kansas City. Both ‘teams’ have projected a positive outcome and have worked out a schedule that allows me to be in Kansas City for my regular treatments and still be back in the office on a regular basis through the first week of March. Sean, along with our coaching and support staffs, remain highly productive in carrying out their responsibilities keeping us on track.”

Think a good thought for Coach Snyder.
