The Morning Stake

The Morning Stake | 2022.05.20

A busy day.


The series thread has been updated with the 13-8 loss to Oklahoma to open the series.


Former Red Raider basketballer Kevin McCullar announced on Twitter that he would attend Kansas for the next 2 years if the NBA draft doesn’t work out. I would link to the Twitter thing, but I don’t want anyone to seek out his profile and leave any sort of negative message. That’s not to say that you can’t be upset about him leaving, but I just don’t want to make it easy to leave a negative comment. As to the fit at Kansas, I honestly don’t see him being a lead guard because of the shooting issues and I think he could be a point guard, but he also lacks the elite passing to be a true point guard either.

2023 Florida point guard Jason Jackson announced that he would be committing to Texas Tech last night. Jackson’s relationship with Al Pinkins is the reason for his commitment and Jackson is a good player. I’ll get to a profile over the weekend for sure.

Norense Odiase announced that he would be joining The Tournament, which is a summer basketball tournament with a $1 million prize for the winning team. Former Texas Tech players have always been a part of other teams and now Texas Tech will have their own team (most likely). Odiase has the energy.


Dallas Morning News’ Ryan Mainville has 5 issues facing Texas Tech football and here’s one of them:

Who is QB1?
The biggest question facing Texas Tech football right now is who the starting quarterback will be in August. And it’s not for a lack of options. Behren Morton, Donovan Smith and Tyler Shough makeup one of the Big 12′s deepest quarterback rooms. Smith had an impressive second half of last season, Shough has veteran experience at the Power 5 level and Morton has high-caliber potential. Joey McGuire has a big decision to make in his first year on the job, and it may be one that isn’t made until Texas Tech takes the field for the first time in 2022.
