    The game is of course hours from kickoff, but I wanted to include this heads-up for all Mike Leach fans: he's apparently got a segment on this Sundays
    edition of "60 minutes" and I think it's the origional presentation.
    Ufortunately its on at the same time as the Philly-Vikes game on Fox, so hope you've got a recorder function on your set.
    Here's a teaser:

    I'll be at work. Go TT, despite my wife's sudden 'I don't know if I can root for Ohio State because the Big 12 is doing well' after I cheered my butt off at the Nebraska watch party.

    Don't tell my boss, went to the gym during my lunch hour and got to watch the first quarter. Good stuff.

    is it just me or does Dexter McCluster remind anyone one else of Chris Johnson/DeSean Jackson? electric speed in space, quick cuts & change in direction.

    Hardy has been playing hard Rylan Reed has been doing an excellent job keeping him out of the box, very solid base. also been impressed with Tech DE Brandon Williams, maybe a sleeper pick for a 4-3 team could be a steal in 3rd/4th....

    Look at these crying babies on the TT offensive line throwing fits. Wow. Paint your face and look all intimidating - then go out there and cry like a 12-year old girl.

    Embarrassing.... and I was rooting for Tech.

    I really like Hardy. The only thing that I don't like is injury history. He seems to be a well balanced DE, good against the run and pass.

    he looked heavy, maybe N. of 270 (too many holiday sweets?) would like to see Hardy drop 10, become a workout warrior before the combine. right now his speed looks in the 4.8-4.9 range (could not catch Harrell on boot) he's got to do better than that & show closing ability to rip down QB's.

    Snead looked very good today. Leaving UT was a good thing for him apparently.

    If we draft any of the linemen from Ole Miss on either side of the ball....I will be very happy.

    I only got to see the first half, and as a Tech fan wasn't paying alot of attention to individuals when we were on offense. I did take a good look at Oher in the first half and now see why some people knock him for his run blocking.

    In pass protection he looks fantastic. Doing a great job of keeping his body between the QB, and defender. On several plays a speed rusher got ahead of him, and he used his arms to reach out, and slow them down just enough for his feet to catch up. I liked what I saw alot.

    Run blocking he was kind of spotty. I saw him completely whiff on some blocks, and look lost at times, not sure who to block. Other times he would look like he was pass protecting on a run play; not a draw. I don't know if that's just bad technique, or maybe he forgets what the play is supposed to be. Other times he flashed the kind of blocking you would expect from a top pick; blowing people up, opening running lanes, etc.

    I can see him slipping to 15 in such a strong tackle class. I would be happy with the Texans picking him up there, over almost anybody except Orakpo, and Jenkins; maybe Raji.
