Avalanche-Journal’s Gabriel Monte has Texas Tech’s response to the Marlene Stollings’ lawsuit:

“I have reviewed the claims made by Marlene Stollings in her lawsuit and they are without merit,” Eric Bentley, Texas Tech University System General Counsel said in a statement. “Her dismissal was handled in accordance with her contract and was appropriate from a legal standpoint. Her mistreatment of student-athletes and the public embarrassment it caused the university was unacceptable. I am confident in the defense of our leadership, who did the right thing to prioritize the health, safety and well-being of our student-athletes.”

The only thing that I would tell you, and I know very little about lawsuits and actually defending them, is that a petition is supposed to make the other side look terrible. It’s your best step and you throw everything out there humanly possible. not all of these allegations are necessarily true, but true enough to make a judge or a jury decide if they are true.

Daily Athenaeum’s Charles Montgomery writes about Texas Tech struggling a bit and head coach Neal Brown liked what the Mountaineers did against Kansas last week:

Against Kansas, West Virginia (3-1, 2-1) gave up 157 total yards and only seven first downs. The Jayhawks also turned the ball over twice and finished 2-of-13 on third down conversions.

“I thought we won on first down,” Brown said on the defensive success. “If you can get ahead of the chains and really own first downs, and that’s something we’ve spent a lot of time practicing is first downs, and we won first downs.”

Texas Tech tight end Simon Gonzalez announced that he will transfer from Texas Tech after two years of never really making it on the field, decided to try to play elsewhere. Gonzalez also was in the doghouse a bit in the spring, so there’s that.
