I’m going to help you today. Today, well, yesterday, Austin City Limits opened its archives so that you could stream all 35 ACL seasons at PBS:

Live music beacon Austin City Limits (ACL) is opening its archives as a gift to music fans during the current live music moratorium. Starting March 23, the perennial television series will make fan-favorite episodes from the recently broadcast Season 45 available for streaming, in addition to the entire slate of programs from the previous two seasons of the acclaimed concert showcase. Over 35 ACL installments will be available to stream free online at offering a wide variety of music’s finest from every genre. The series has also created an upcoming broadcast programming block with highly-requested episodes from recent ACL archives to air weekly on PBS stations (check local listings for times) beginning March 28.

Cited by USA Today as the lead option for streaming live music, Austin City Limits has offered viewers a front-row seat to the best in performance for an incredible four-and-a-half decades from the Live Music Capital of the World, Austin, Texas; the series is the flagship of the popular ACL Music Festival.

The great thing about ACL is that there’s probably something for everyone, so long as you like music.

Brittany Brewer was named as a Region Three finalist for the Coaches All-America award by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association and Brittany continues to be awarded for the awesome season and career that she had at Texas Tech.

You know what’s great about this time off of sports? People are writing things that you might night normally read. Explore Big Sky’s Brandon Walker does a feature on Buzz Tatom, who was a receiver for Texas Tech from 1981 to 1984, but the main focus of the article was about Tatom’s high school head coach at Richardson High, Winston Duke. Go give it a read.

RedRaiderSports’ Billy Watson talked with former Red Raider footballer Kolin Hill about his near attempt to play football in Germany before the COVID-19 outbreak, but he’s not giving up his goals of playing football professionally and talks about the state of the program now:

“Guys like (Riko Jeffers), (Broderick Washington), (Douglas Coleman), those type of guys,” Hill said. “I love watching those guys. Overall, I’m excited for the program, excited for those guys. I feel like coach Wells is a good addition to Texas Tech.”

Hill was in Lubbock about four weeks ago visiting his twin brother, Kaleb, but has yet to visit the facilities and meet the football staff. Hill said he has met a few of the strength and conditioning coaches but wants to show face soon with the football coaches.

“I am looking to go there,” Hill said, “introduce myself to some of those coaches and see some of my former teammates.”

Houston Chronicle’s Robert Avery writes about softball’s Erin Edmoundson and her last game pitched for Texas Tech being a 5-0 win over Hawaii, with Edmoundson being from Deer Park down Houston-way. Here are Edmoundson’s accomplishments as a Red Raider:

With her 10 victories this season, it’s enabled her to climb to fourth place on Texas Tech’s all-time wins list and just four behind Ashly Jacobs, who sits in third with 51 victories. No doubt, the shutting down of the season likely prevented Edmoundson from overtaking Jacobs. Renfro is the all-time leader with 93 wins.

Entering this season, Edmoundson was also listed in the career record book for complete games (21), innings pitched (379.2), appearances (85), strikeouts (296), saves (3) and strikeouts per seven innings (5.46). Texas Tech’s strikeouts-per-seven-innings-pitched of 6.29 last season was the most since the 2001 campaign and the team’s 341 strikeouts was the most since that season.
