Some good news. Via EverythingLubbock, there are no active COVID-19 cases for the football team and there were no positive results and there are 13 active cases among student-athletes and none of those 13 active cases are within the football program. So, the good news is that the bye week wasn’t a disaster, that the football team hunkered down a bit, as did the entire athletic department. So good news. I’m sure this will go up and down as the season progresses, but I’ll take this.

I’d also advise that this doesn’t mean that every player will be available because I think it depends where a player is in terms of the 14-day quarantine and then there’s also the contract tracing aspect of things as well.

Avalanche-Journal’s Don Williams has a full notebook from yesterday’s media availability. Given that this was the availability for head coach Matt Wells, offensive coordinator David Yost, and defensive coordinator Keith Patterson, there’s no way that I have time to non-transcript all of those things. I’ll be honest, I listened to all three pressers and I don’t know that I really learned anything other than what Williams mentions, i.e. that Henry Columbi is the second quarterback and both of the tackles that started last week will start again.

The main portion was about the COVID-19 testing and Wells essentially says that until it is a requirement, he won’t personally release who is available or not available, which I think is fine.

After the UT game, Texas Tech will travel to Manhattan to take on Kansas State at 2:30 p.m. and will be on FS1. If you had dreams of games not being on at 11:00 a.m. every Saturday, well, so far your wish has come true.

Here are some tweets.
