College campuses across the country will be sending students home for the summer over the next couple of weeks, which must be a great source of anxiety for coaches. The less time players spend with their teams, the more opportunities they have to get into trouble and out of shape. Texas Tech football coach Kliff Kingsbury is aware of that and is trying to stay ahead of the curve.
Texas Tech offensive lineman Alfredo Morales tweeted the photo you see above on Tuesday, which shows a letter Kingsbury sent to all of his players before they went home for break.
“Also we advise you to be active over break as you will need to be ready to work once June rolls around,” the note read. “Sitting at the house playing COD/2K13/Madden against 12 year olds online doesn’t suffice as ‘activity’ even if you claim to ‘wreck shop.’”
Awesome. As a 33-year-old coach, Kingsbury can certainly relate to his players. He knows how 20-somethings act, considering he just was one about four years ago. I’d rather ...

You can get over on one of those old ball coaches, those old guys who don't quite know who Jay-Z is and have somebody else type their e-mails for them.
But Texas Tech football coach Kliff Kingsbury is a single, 33-year-old man. He was barely out of college when Facebook came out. He knows what's up.
So he sent his players a little message as they exited spring football...
Texas Tech’s new head football coach, Kliff Kingsbury, is just 33-years of age. While he may lack the experience that some of his peers have, he’s got an advantage on them in the communication department. Kingsbury demonstrated that this week in a letter to his players before they left for summer break.
Offensive lineman Alfredo Morales posted the photo below:
Message to all...
When Kliff Kingsbury was hired as the head coach at Texas Tech this past winter, it was lauded as both a steal for the school and a win for young bros looking for a big break everywhere. After all, it’s not often that a school takes a chance in giving a plush head coaching job to any 33-year-old, let alone one that walks around with the swag of your average 30-something at happy...
There is something to be said for time and experience. There is also something to be said for being the next great thing, and Texas Tech thinks they have it in their new and very young head coach--and former football standout--Kliff Kingsbury.
Some have pointed at his age and said he isn't ready to be in charge of a major college football program. In a recent message to his...
Out in west Texas there's this 33-year-old hotshot coaching the Red Raiders in a movie-star haircut and a pair of sweet shades. He connects with the kids. They play rap songs at practice and he sings along. He leaves his players messages referring to Call of Duty and 2k13. Kliff Kingsbury is hip. He's connected. He's on the pulse.
And then, way out east, in Gainesville...
This letter to the Texas Tech football team is making sure the Red Raiders know that playing Madden or Call of Duty does not count as working out.
With an offer list consisting of Baylor, Texas Tech, Iowa, Nebraska and others, UTSA isn't necessarily a common name matching up to those programs. That's why you roll the dice!
Over the course of a calendar year, the month of May is essentially the only downtime a college football player gets. Falls are reserved for game days and prep, which immediately roll into bowl season and winter workouts, which becomes spring ball, and eventually summer camp. Therefore, it’s these pristine few days in May where a college football player gets to kick his feet back...
