Which Texas to trust:Why every Raider needs to pray for PAC 16

As you all know, much has been made about how fortunate Tech is to be included in recent talks involving inclusion in a proposed BigPac (Pac16). One of the biggest reasons for UT's power is the...

RECRUITING: ESPN RELEASES FIRST TEAM RANKINGS

The recruiting front continues to look good for Tech putting together it's best recruiting class ever in 2011. ESPN has released it's first team rankings, and your Red Raiders come in at 14th best in the country! Also of note, 6 of the top 15 teams hail from what would be the new BIGPAC(PAC16).

DEADLINE: BIG 12 GIVES NE AND MIZZOU TILL FRIDAY

ESPN.com is reporting that during last weeks meetings, the Big 12 members voted to demand that both Nebraska and Mizzou declare their intention to stay or go by Friday. Also, in this article is more concrete evidence that the PAC-10 has invitations in hand, and they plan to move fast. I take this all to mean, if true, that if that Friday deadline passes without everyone on board, this new Pac-10 merger is a done deal.

RIVALS GIVES STARS!

Rivals.com has begun trickling in star ratings for the 2011 recruiting class today. Of the 4 Tech commits who have received ratings up to this point, all four received 4 Stars from Rivals. Given top prospects such as RB Marquez have yet to be rated, we can be sure more 4 Star ratings are to come. RRS.com is also now reporting, based on these preliminary ratings, that this will be Tech's best recruiting class in program history.

RECRUITING: BLEACHERREPORT HAS TECH CLASS RANKED 14TH IN NATION

Bleacher Report writer takes time to cast his early vote for the top recruiting classes for 2011. All this changes of course as teams including Tech, add to their class. For now, according to this analyst, Tech ranks 14th in the country.

PA DE GREEN: TECH IN TOP 3

Penn. area DE D. Green has Tech in Top 3 along with Michigan State and Pitt. I like the interest being shown to Tech from recruits on the East Coast. It's still a crap shoot as to whether these kids commit here, but the consideration by many kids not from Texas or Oklahoma is growing, and that bodes well for our national brand IMO.

TECH RANKS24TH IN NATION FOR MERCHANDISE SALES

I found this over on ESPN, and I was actually pleasantly surprised to see that Tech merchandise ranks in the top 25 in the counrty. As we all know, the general consensus has always been that Tech flies under the radar and plays above our pay grade. In the past we have enjoyed the role as underdog, never feeling we got the respect we deserve from national media and analysts. It would appear though, that when the money meets the road, that Tech as a brand is selling right about where we rank on the field. This also bodes well if we can continue our success on the field, and in the midst of conference realignement talk.There is a good foundation here to build the value of the brand into the the elite levels of college sports. Perhaps one day soon we will see the emergence of our own Walmart T-shirt fans.

HELP ON THE WAY: DE SCOTT SMITH SET TO ARRIVE IN LUBBOCK IN ONE WEEK

According to Rivals.com (no membership needed, everything is spelled on on the front page), DE Scott Smith will be in Lubbock in less than a week. Smith is widely regarded as the best JUCO defense recruit of 2010, and one of the top JUCO recruits overall, in the nation. His academic elligibility has been in question, but those questions are now put to rest as he is set to provide a much welcomed upgrade to a thin defensive line.

HUGE COMMITMENT: TECH ADDS NUMBER 11

According to RRS.com (if you don't have a membership, the pic tells the story), RB Bradley Marquez from Odessa has commited to Texas Tech. According to Scout.com, Marquez is the 16th best RB in the country. Pair that with RB commit Kenny Williams, who is ranked as the 8th best RB in the country, and Tech is putting together quite the backfield of the future. When was the last time Tech recruited not one but two top 20 RBs in one class?

FORMER TECH PLAYER: TUBERVILLE REACHING OUT TO LETTERMEN FOR SPRING GAME

A poster on RP.com shared that his brother, a former Spyke player in the 90's, has been contacted by Tubs. He went on to say, "My brother said he received a letter from the office of Coach Tubberville that basically said he wanted to reach out to ex players that lettered.
