One man’s quest to bring the DeLorean back to life. Via The Hustle:

Running across a DeLorean on the road is like spotting a rare bird in the wild: The brushed stainless-steel exterior, the gullwing doors that open toward the sky. It’s the souped-up sports car that needed 1.21 gigawatts of electricity to take Michael J. Fox back to the future. You can’t help but stare.

It’s a strange vehicle with an even stranger automotive history.

Heralded as revolutionary upon its release in 1981, the car sold poorly and was plagued by mechanical problems. It didn’t help when its charismatic creator, John DeLorean, got mixed-up in a $24m cocaine bust.

While the products of most failed companies fade into oblivion, the DeLorean has held onto its head-turning allure nearly four decades after its debut. It’s a debacle that spawned a legend.

And if Stephen Wynne, a Texas entrepreneur, gets his way, you will soon be able to buy a brand new DeLorean — one that makes up for the shortcomings of the original and picks up where its namesake left off.

5-0. The embedded tweet doesn’t really tell the whole story because softball always plays a ton of games in a weekend tournament and they played 5 over the weekend going 5-0 at the Big Easy Classic, notching wins over Houston Baptist, Jackson State, Louisiana Tech, Central Arkansas, and Montana. The easiest way for me to link to all of this is to link to the scheddule where there are links to the recaps and box scores if you want to check them out.

Cinematic Recap.

Texas Tech Football

Cosgrove as Linebackers Coach. Via The Advocate’s Brooks Kubena, LSU defensive analyst Kevin Cosgrove is set to join Texas Tech as the linebackers coach. Cosgrove has been a defensive coordinator at Wisconsin, Nebraska, and New Mexico. I don’t have an opinion about this. No official announcement has been made, but I’ll have something to say when that happens.
