Chris Beard is a pretty great deadpan interview and he talk to Gerald Myers one last time at the Coliseum.

Texas Tech Football

Flip This Commit . . . Welcome to our new segment where we try to detail who is going where. Yesterday, quarterback Maverick McIvor decided to recommit to Texas Tech, which is really fantastic news and should solidify this class. It makes me feel better because this class needed a quarterback and I think that McIvor is about as good as you’re going to get . . . defensive back Markel Reed has decided to commit to Boise State rather than recommit to Texas Tech. Best of luck to the young man and I hope he does great things for the Broncos . . . Permian athletie Peyton Powell has decided to decommit from Texas and there has been chatter that Powell may commit to the good guys (that’s Texas Tech). We’ll see if that happens and I think that Powell would make a great addition to the Texas Tech class . . .

The Chiefs ended up losing last night, but this was a pretty remarkable throw for Patrick Mahomes and even Phillip Rivers couldn’t believe it.

Miscellaneous . . . The NY Times on Ryan Hilinski, the brother of Tyler Hilinski who committed suicide and was posthumously diagnosed with C.T.E., discusses why he continues to play the game that killed his brother . . . I also found this article from the Charlotte Observer about a reporter who rang Rae Carruth’s doorbell and talked to the man he had written so much about. To remind you, Carruth was part of a conspiracry to murder his then-girlfriend, who was pregnant with his son, Chancellor Lee Adams, who suffered permanent disabilities as a result (Chancellor lives with his grandmother now) . . . sorry for the two relatively depressing links, but they were both really well written and the Carruth story is one that I’ve followed from afar that I can’t seem to look away from . . .
