Your daily dose of all things Texas Tech athletics.

Leading Off

Relive the final day of the Big 12 Championship for both track and field teams. Kinda fun to watch the men because they are loose and they are confident and they are ready to kick some ass.

The men’s golf team is participating in the Columbus NCAA Regional and are currently sitting 6th overall (official site) and I think they’re really excited to be back at full strength. The top five teamms advance to the NCAA Championships, so they are right there in contention.

A-J Media’s Matt Dotray writes that the Lubbock Municipal Coliseum and Auditorium will still be standing for the next couple of years although Lubbock voters agreed to return it to Texas Tech with estimates of demolition of about $4 million. The idea is that the land will be used for a student-athlete dormitory and maybe move the Drive of Champions that could also involve expanding Dan Law Field.

Via a website called SportsInfo, we get a list of all of the top paid athletic directors, with Kirby Hocutt coming in at 6th in the nation and that is also 1st in the Big 12 at $1,450,000. Hocutt, UT’s Chris Del Conte ($1,435,000) and OU’s Joe Castiglione ($1,148,750) are the top three paid athletic directors. TCU and Baylor are obviously not listed because they are private schools.

Texas Tech Football

Via EerSports, they have the ProFootballFocus of the Big 12 quarterbacks and McLane Carter is dead last, with Will Grier at West Virginia and Dru Brown at Oklahoma State sitting at first and second. Brown is a transfer from Hawaii.
