Avalanche-Journal’s Don Williams reports (and it was reported by the SWAC) that the SWAC will play football in the spring, complete with a 7 game conference schedule, which means that Texas Tech’s home game against South Alabama is canceled. Texas Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt released a statement stating that they knew about the way the winds were blowing and still want to play 12 games:

We learned late this afternoon the SWAC will move all of its fall sports, including football, to the spring. We expected this decision and have already been in discussions with several potential opponents. As I’ve stated previously, we remain in constant contact with our peers in the Big 12 Conference and will continue to evaluate our options to play a complete football schedule.

Texas Football’s Shehan Jeyarajah is ranking the 50 best players in the state of Texas and RB SaRodorick Thompson checks in at 41:

The Irving native stepped into a crowded running back room as a sophomore and made it his own. Against Baylor, he carried it 28 times, and against Texas, he was on the field almost every snap. Now, he’s ready to be the full-time bellcow.

Inside The Red Raiders’ Jarrett Johnson has a list of every player that Texas Tech has offered this spring/summer. It’s an extensive list, but for those of you who really follow recruiting, this is a good thing to peruse.

Heartland College Sports released their preseason All-Big 12 team and it appears that the consensus is basically Jack Anderson, Eli Howard, and Austin McNamara as the three guys that made the team and that seems to be pretty consistent with these preseason teams.

Chris Beard promoted his appearance with Steve Hawkins on his podcast. Beard starts around the 17 minute mark and starts talking about culture from the beginning and it’s an enjoyable listen.

Here are some tweets.
