Media Days Wrap Up; New Commitment

IRVING, Texas — Texas, Colorado, Oklahoma and Kansas took the podium on third and final day of Big 12 Media Days. Plus there's a new commitment in the 2011 class for Texas Tech.

IRVING, Texas — Mack Brown has plenty of respect for Texas Tech head coach Tommy Tuberville.

Colorado head coach Dan Hawkins appears to not be worried that many believe he is on the hottest seat in college football right now.

"At least I have a seat," he joked.

Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops said he would be happy to play Nebraska in a few years as a non-conference opponent but the Sooners need to find a way to fit them in the non-conference schedule — which is booked for the next few years.

And Turner Gill could not be any happier to be in this conference. Even though it's at Kansas and not his alma mater — Nebraska.

"That wasn't the right fit," he said. "This is the right fit at the right time."

Texas Tech welcomed home Tommy Tuberville after the head coach got to throw out the first pitch at last night's epic Rangers game. Luckily the starter Cliff Lee, fared better after Tuberville's first pitch, striking out a career-high 13 batters with Tuberville watching in amazement.

Tubs didn't exactly strike out, he's got a new commitment and is slowly beginning to build a top 20 class for 2011. All this and more video coming later tonight.
