Texas Tech wide receiver Adam James caught his first pass of the season against Texas A&M. It went for 12 yards in the loss.

Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville says they will use a tight end about 15 to 20 plays per game next season. Adam James and converted defensive end Ryan Haliburton have been working out at the position this spring.

James is obviously the pass catcher of the two, but he is officially an inside receiver on the Texas Tech roster.

ESPN ombudsman Don Ohlmeyer claims the network may not have been fair in its coverage of the Mike Leach / Adam James situation.  "News decisions in these cases must not be resolved by asking 'What's permissible for the employee?' but rather 'What's fair to the audience?'" Ohlmeyer said.

Ohlmeyer is obviously referencing the apparent bias in ESPN's reporting of the story due to the fact that James' father, Craig James, is an ESPN broadcaster.

Texas Tech has fired head coach Mike Leach.  Leach was previously suspended for the treatment of wide receiver Adam James.

Leach's relationship with athletic director Gerald Myers was on thin ice as it was and it looks like the James' incident gave Myers the opportunity get rid of Leach.  You can expect this to get uglier before it gets better, I don't see Leach taking this news lying down.

Texas Tech's Adam James is pushing projected starter Tramain Swindall at the H (slot) receiver.

Most have Swindall penciled in as the starter, but according to receivers coach Lincoln Riley, James has "really clouded the picture up at ‘H.’ ”  Right now Detron Lewis appears to be the only sure starter for Tech.
