On one hand, I’m glad that we’re at a busy time of year, but I’m happy to have a couple of days off without games. The downside is that there’s not a ton of news, which I can live with these negative consequences. I do want to point you towards our incredible staff of writers we have at Staking The Plains and to remind you to do the following:
- Please follow these folks on Twitter. Of all things, I forgot to include myself (SethC_J), which makes this funny.
- Please follow each of the new podcasts, details at each of their Twitter bios.
- Please follow Staking The Plains on Twitter as this is really our only social media presence, which is generally just a feed of the stories posted here and the occasional tweet when I have time to tweet.
Please follow our ever growing number of contributors that make @stakingtheplain as great as it is: @Michael_LaB @DanSwany @B_DonCarlos @puntssuck @LSRR07 @LubbockElitist @KeithBPatrick and @_KyleJacobson

Bruffy to NCAA Convention. Offensive lineman Travis Bruffy is one of just 15 student-athletes who will be headed to Orlando to attend the NCAA Convention’s autonomy session:
“Travis Bruffy is an excellent representative for his peers across the nation and here at Texas Tech University,” Director of Athletics Kirby Hocutt said. “It is a tremendous honor to have a Texas Tech student-athlete represent the Big 12 Conference at the highest level, and I know Travis will do a phenomenal job representing our student-athletes and those of other Big 12 institutions.”

Eccentric Chins. I’m not even sure what eccentric chins are (I totally know what eccentric chins are because I watched the video), but if you’re not following strength and conditioning coach David Scholz on Twitter, you might be missing workouts.
