More Bubble Demolition. TTURed at Totally Texas Tech has new campus photos, including lots of photos of the demotion on the north side of Jones AT&T Stadium, the bubble is now just a hole.


Texas Tech Women’s Rodeo Team to National Finals. Via the LAJ’s Brett Hoffman the women’s rodeo team will advanced to the College National Finals Rodeo after advancing in their region:

Throughout the year, Texas Tech thrived on stellar performances from Kellie Collier who won the region’s women’s all-around title after earning 1,200 points in multiple events. Collier also snared the regional barrel racing title and finished fifth in the break-away roping race.

The team also benefitted from Kynzie Rae McNeil who finished second in the regional women’s all-around race with 762.5 points.

Other competitors who will represent Texas Tech at the Casper championships are Jessica Dunbar and Tamara Tunink. Last year, Tunink won the NIRA break-away title at the College National Finals when she competed for Western Texas.

Also mentioned in that article is a mention of Stetson Vest, brother to Sawyer Vest and both Texas Tech grads.

Miscellaneous. This is pretty fascinating and it’s a long-read. Mercury News’ Jon Wilner has a fantastic look at the relationship between Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott, the state of the Pac-12 conference and Scott’s relationship with the members of the Pac-12, in particular the athletic directors and the presidents. Things may not be all that awesome for Scott . . . Via CollegeFootballTalk Laremy Tunsil had a wild-arsed draft night, including his Twitter account being hacked showing him smoking a bong with a gas mask and then on his Instagram account text messages have him asking for money from a coach to pay his mom’s rent. Tunsil was eventually drafted by the Dolphins . . .
