HOT COUGAR ACTION: Thursday Morning Links

It's a Thursday during basketball season, yet the Cougars do not play tonight. In fact, we have to wait all the way until Sunday to see the Cougars men's team in action. Honestly, I don't know if that is a good thing or a bad thing. I'm not sure if many of you were actually looking forward to watching the Cougs play tonight.

In an effort to help pass the time, I gathered as many links as possible. They may not keep you busy until Sunday, but they should take up at least a solid 10 minutes of your morning. No point in wasting any more time, let's get straight to them starting with an update on Mike Leach's lawsuit against Texas Tech.
