Max_Brown_KSU_baseball_14.jpgWe have been focusing on the Texas Tech baseball team a lot this season because of their success on the field, but what about the K-State Wildcats?

ECU.jpgAs we begin to approach Summer, we are also preparing to welcome some new teams to the American Athletic Conference, but outside of the school names and the mascots for their teams, most fans don't know a lot about these programs. Besides being the Purple Pirates from a state that doesn't actually exist, ECU is a big football school. In many ways, the addition of ECU is like adding another UCF. They have a nice stadium and their fans travel well. So maybe they bring some things to the table that the Knights doesn't. Remember the American had to cover all those unsold tickets to the Fiesta Bowl? One of the first questions fans should ask is, "Who is the coach of this new AAC team?" Well let's take a look at Ruffin McNeill, the head coach of the ECU Pirates.

Ryan_Simmons_OSU.jpgThe Oklahoma State Cowboys are one of the few programs at college football's highest level that have been able to climb out of the middle of the pack in recent years to have a respectable amount of success and a good deal of that is due to the support of T. Boone Pickens and the leadership of head coach Mike Gundy. Gundy's record speaks for itself as the gel-haired, visor-wearing coach has built a program that contends for conference championships annually.
