How Boba Fett Became a ‘Star Wars’ Icon. Via The Ringer:

Perhaps no character in the Star Wars canon has ascended to legendary status on looks alone the way Boba Fett has. Despite barely appearing in the saga’s original trilogy and dying in pathetic fashion in Return of the Jedi, falling listlessly into a Sarlacc pit, he’s remained a prominent figure in the extended universe and its fan base’s consciousness, fueled by the power of a design that, in Star Wars, is perhaps rivaled by only Darth Vader. Now, nearly 40 years after Boba Fett’s debut, Disney+ is staking its first Star Wars series solely on the power of the character’s imagery with The Mandalorian, which will follow a similarly styled bounty hunter. It’s further evidence that between the action figures and video games, the aura of Boba Fett and the fervor of the online cult fandom he’s attracted begins and ends with his iconic look.

Texas Tech Soccer

Texas Tech to Host Pepperdine in NCAA First Round. Another year and another NCAA appearance, head coach Tom Stone and the ladies are hosting a first round game against Pepperdine on Friday, first touch set for 6:30. Here’s head coach Tom Stone:

“We’re super grateful to be playing them here,” he said. “We know we have an edge when it comes to environment. The atmosphere here is fantastic and electric. When you’re rolling and have a home game in the NCAA Tournament, Tech fans are putting on their coats and coming out. We love that about our Red Raider fans.”

#11 in AP Poll. If you’d like to see how each AP voter voted, you can always check out CollegePollTracker if you need a cup of annoyance this morning. Remember that this poll is really pretty useless for the most part.

Cinematic Recap. I think this is what it is called, alwasy enjoyable for me.

Texas Tech vs. Kansas State Game Time Delayed. I think that the networks get an option to delay to see how this week’s games turn out.
