SEATTLE — Mike Leach had just gotten the Texas Tech coaching job in 1999 when he and an assistant coach flew from Lubbock down to Odessa to recruit a decorated receiver named Roy Williams. "Amazing-looking kid," said Manny Matsakis, the former assistant. They told him they'd throw the ball all over the place at Texas Tech, and at the end, they told him, "Before we're done, we're going to beat Texas. " Of course, Williams went on to a prolific career at Texas. But on a November night in 2002, Tech beat the Longhorns 42-38, and afterward, Williams met Matsakis at midfield and shook his hand.

I am a college baseball junkie, and ESPN has given me all the coverage I can handle and then some the last three weeks. The incredible run by the University Maryland, my alma mater, has been icing on the cake and a cherry on top of that. But, honestly, I could watch the Anteaters from the University of California - Irvine beat the Oklahoma State Cowboys any night of the week. And I didn't miss one Texas Tech game streamed or on-air. I'll see them both in the College World Series from Omaha next weekend.

Tommy Tuberville was hired on Saturday by Texas Tech to replace Mike Leach as the Red Raiders' coach. The school announced the decision in a release and said that Tuberville will be introduced on Sunday. Leach was fired last month amid allegations he mistreated a player who suffered a concussion. Tuberville stepped down at Auburn in December 2008, ending a 10-year tenure that included a perfect season and a string of teams that contended for Southeastern Conference championships.

Texas Tech suspended Mike Leach on Monday while the school investigated complaints from receiver Adam James and his family about how the coach treated the player after he suffered a concussion during a Dec. 16 scrimmage. The school named defensive coordinator Ruffin McNeill as coach for the Jan. 2 Alamo Bowl against Michigan State. Tech officials declined to identify the player, but James' family released a statement to the Associated Press identifying Adam, the son of ex-NFL player and current TV analyst Craig James . ESPN later said James would not work the Alamo Bowl as scheduled.

He has lost his team Teddy Greenstein Chicago Tribune How could he? The school already acknowledged that Gillespie exceeded practice-time limits. Now his leading scorer says he does not want to play for him. From a distance, Gillispie seems to be everything wrong with college sports. If it's true that he held an eight-hour practice and forced a player with a stress fracture in both legs to practice, the NCAA should ban him. If the allegations are not true, Billy Clyde, then speak up. I've read the statements from those who defend you, and they are not convincing.

Texas Tech fired Mike Leach on Wednesday after the coach took the school to court to try to overturn his suspension for alleged mistreatment of an injured player. "I'm very sad to say there's only one person to blame for this and it's Mike Leach," Texas Tech Chancellor Kent Hance told The Associated Press. Jerry Turner , vice chairman of the university system's Board of Regents, said "other things" came to light during an investigation of Leach's treatment of receiver Adam James . The sophomore alleged the coach twice confined him to a small, dark place after the player was diagnosed with a concussion.

No scoreboard-watching necessary for Texas Tech. Less than 24 hours after the Red Raiders gave the national championship race a makeover by defeating then-No. 1 Texas, they received more good news when the Bowl Championship Series standings were released yesterday. Texas Tech was in second place, behind Alabama and just ahead of third-place Penn State. And Maryland, which had last weekend off, unexpectedly jumped into the standings at No. 23. If the undefeated Red Raiders of the Big 12 and undefeated Crimson Tide of the Southeastern Conference win out, they will likely meet in the BCS national championship game Jan. 8 in Miami.

TUCSON, Ariz. - There were hugs and tears and sloppy kisses on the Texas Tech sideline. Bob Knight, whose more famous emotional outbursts have involved slapping players, throwing chairs and bellying up to referees, wrapped his senior point guard Ronald Ross in a full-body embrace, then sent his son, Patrick, into the stands to bring his wife, Karen, onto the floor. Texas Tech, seeded sixth in the Albuquerque Regional, had just moved into the NCAA tournament Sweet 16 after upsetting No. 3 seed Gonzaga, 71-69, yesterday at the McKale Center.

No love lost in Texas David Teel Daily Press A democracy that has given us Sen. Al Franken and Gov. Terminator surely is capable of producing Sen. Craig James. But I'd sooner vote for Lee "Don't forget the 7-second delay" Corso. The beauty of James' folly is he's running in his native Texas. Sure, he starred there at SMU, but that outlaw era earned the program the NCAA's only death penalty. More than two decades later, James' ESPN-enabled crusade helped take down Texas Tech coach Mike Leach.

Joe Paterno continues to impress. The 84-year-old coach passed Grambling State great Eddie Robinson with his 409th win Saturday, giving him the record for the most victories by a Division I football coach. If South Carolina is going to win the SEC East, it's going to be with defense. Everyone knew losing Marcus Lattimore would be a huge blow for the Gamecocks, and that showed against Tennessee. South Carolina needs to stop people to have a chance to win. Clemson's loss is another disappointment for the ACC. After several frustrating seasons, the ACC seemed to have a national title contender in the Tigers.

Being an afterthought is nothing new to the Red Raiders, but even when people should be talking about the most accomplished season in the program's history, all the folks back in Lubbock want to do is shout over some broken glass.Texas Tech plays a third-round game against Georgetown tonight (7: 40)
