 You can find this story all over the internet, but I’m linking SI’s Michael McCann (he’s kind of a legal expert) about how the Justice Department and the FBI detailed a wide-ranging bribery and fraud complaint that included four assistant coaches, where the coaches received money from Adidas in exchange to steer top players to certain programs. One of those assistant coaches was an assistant coach at Oklahoma State, Lamont Evans, who was the coach last year and this year. This is a bad deal for

A-J Media’s Don Williams writes about IR Cameron Batson wanting to get a win against Oklahoma State:

“I mean, of course,” Batson said, chuckling. “Of course I want to win against those guys. They recruited me and never offered me (a scholarship), but I really don’t care about that at this point in my career.

“I’m here at Texas Tech. I made the best decision of my life coming here.”

  RedRaiderSports’ Brandon Soliz has the media availability from Douglas Coleman, Zach Barnes and Dominic Panazzolo. Here’s a bit from Barnes:

Barnes said the unit is more patient in their approach and focused on each play – something defensive line coach Terrance Jamison has brought with him.

“So everyday (Jamison) comes in and it’s about perfection with him,” Barnes said. “It’s about perfection and also making plays. He’s been a big part of it.”

When asked about the confidence of the defense, Barnes said it’s there and it’s rising. However, he said the defense gets complacent late in games when teams start to fight their way back.

“I think it’s coming up,” Barnes said. “One thing we do know about ourselves is that we have to finish a game. We’d like to keep teams down, you know, keep them down to 10 points instead of letting them come back in the fourth quarter. That’s one thing that we talk about everyday.”
