I work in the oil and gas industry. Jack of all trades and master of none. I ride my motorcycle entirely too much. I'm a member of the Brotherhood of the 74, you can google that if you like.

I drink my fair share, but in moderation. I enjoy good scotch and fine cigars, but I also drink my fair share of Mexican Beer and smoke cheap cigarettes.

I've played guitar for about 18 years and enjoy the heck out of it. Anything from Blues to Metal. Not much in between.

To appease the Football Gods.....

With our string of injuries between the Spring and now, the call on our starting QB, the James fiasco, Leach's departure, and everything else that has gone horribly wrong in the last 8-9 months,...

Justin Chaisson withdraws from OU.

I'm not really sure if he had a "career" in football ahead of him, but I hope he gets his life in order. Poor kid made some bone head decisions earlier on in his football career that may have cost him.

Tough act to follow?

You can bet your country a** it is!! I know it seems like regergitated information, and that's cause it is. It's the slow season, at least it's something to read. It does seem like Coach Brown has an idea as to what's to be expected this season. For that, I applaud him. Wreck Em Tech!

Fairly good read on Brandon Williams, Jamar Wall, and Brandon Sharpe.

Lots of good photos available for your enjoyment. Including some from Tuberville's Texas Ranger's visit with former Red Raider Dallas Braden of the Oakland A's. Wreck Em and Suck It A-Rod!

With Football season right around the corner.....

Every last one of you needs to get more Tech Schwag and promptly!! I know I've been loading up here lately.I stumbled upon this little gem and found quite a few things I coulnd't live without. h...

Green Bay Players move in for Fall Camp, including Harrell......

12

Just a little update. I read earlier that Mike McCarthy was a little upset with one of his QB's weight gain over the offseason. Not sure who it was. Looks like Harrell and Flynn might be roomies. Let the fishing stories commence. By the way, does anybody know how much Harrell signed for? Thank you jdhud http://www.rotoworld.com/CONTENT/clubhouse_contracts.aspx?sport=NFL&majteam=GB

Tuberville will NOT alternate Qb's......

It's not a slow day at all! A little more QB news.

Mike Leach is alive and well......

Finally found an article on our dear departed captain. Some of you might want to read this, others might skim over it, and others might boo it. But, I think it's worth your time.

A little Crabtree love.......

Looks like our boy Crabtree is making strides during minicamp. I can't wait to see what he accomplishes this year. Wreck Em

A little more Harrell love.....

17

I know this is old. But not a day goes by at work that I don't think about how things turned out for Harrell. I've read this article countless times and still haven't figured out why he wasn't drafted. I thought some of you might want to read this. Just based on the production numbers alone, Harrell would have been a great asset for any team in the NFL. The weak arm arguement is about as weak as you can get. Let's try and support our boy in GreenBay. I know the writer of this article thinks highly of him. Wreck Em

Mike McCarthy weighs in on Graham Harrell

You might need to scroll down a bit to find it. I like what I've read so far. Graham is trying to make a name for himself in Green Bay. Let's hope he does. Wreck Em

The PAC-10 or "I want to go to there".....

Good morning fellow DTNer's. It's 03:12 Lubbock time ( yeah, that just happened ) and I've been thinking, what in the f*** has been going on since Christmas? We've lost our Pirate Coach, promoted...

So, if this goes down as planned....

I for one will be adding a ton of blogs to my list involving the PAC-10. I'm already starting to check on other teams like some of the rest of you. This is quite exciting. But, I think we should...

This may not be University related, but I thought I would share the information with you all.

What are the Big 12 and Pac 10 talking about?

More Intergallactic Conference Allignment with a twist. BCS Evolution breaks it down for us with a different scenario. I would call it required reading to an extent, seeing as how it involves Tech and the Big 12. Check it out.

I'll be quite honest with you guys, I'm growing tired of NOT talking football. I think it's about time we get this started. In the past, we have discussed an All Leach Team. Let's come up with a...

I stumbled upon this lovely little gem earlier. I know when we play Iowa State it's pretty bad. So, let's go ahead and start making it funny while we can. Enjoy!

Ex Player Interview

All though I don't really want to, I'm going to skip the spring game in light of something else. I have the chance to interview one of my all time favorites that played at Tech. He's a mountain of...

Todd McShay - Not. Smart.

He's right on track for becoming the new Craig James, as far as I'm concerned.... What a mistake....

The s*** hits the fan again... I know some of you go to DTN, but I thought I would link it for you instead and get BON's take on the deal. Again, there is something rotten in the state of Denmark.

I know it's Bleacher Report, but it's actually a pretty good read.
