Baseball America Big 12 Preview. You definitely need to check out Baseball America’s Big 12 preview for all things Big 12. Lots of Big 12 content and as part of a teaser, BA thinks that Texas Tech has the player of the Year and also the Freshman of the Year:

Marusak, as Texas Tech’s projected opening day center fielder, is going to get thrown right into the deep end as a first-year player, but with his tools, he looks more than capable of handling it. Marusak’s speed grades out as elite, which will allow the Amarillo, Texas, native to run down just about everything in the outfield and to be a real chaos creator at the plate and on the bases for a Red Raiders offense that should put up runs in bunches again.

Texas Tech Basketball

Top 5 for TCU.

Big Monday, Part Deaux. Well, Texas Tech went a decade-plus without hosting a Big Monday game and now, Texas Tech does it two Mondays in a row.

Standings. Kansas lost to Texas last night, which means that Kansas State and Baylor are leading the Big 12 (by percentage points) at 5-2, while Texas Tech and Kansas are 5-3. Texas Tech obviously has Kansas coming up on Saturday, but things are about to get really interesting if they weren’t already.

Texas Tech Football

Tazhawn. This is kind of interesting, a hype video for an individual player where the player tweets it out from his account. It looks like it was done by the official site, but I’m not sure. It looks professionally done regardless.

Kumah to Visit. Did you guys/gals know that Virginia Tech receiver (6-2/225) Eric Kumah (42 catches, 559 yards, 7 touchdowns) will visit Texas Tech on March 30th? Me neither and he will be a graduate student, so he’d be eligible immediately.

Graduate Assistant. You all were talking about a graduate assistant who had coached high school at John Tyler, Angleton, North Shore, etc., and I had no idea who you were talking about. Well, it is Mike OGuin, who was the defensive line coach at North Shore last year.
