Shiver me timbers!

For the second time in as many weeks, Texas Tech's recruiting efforts in this little corner of heaven have undermined the mighty Gators!

After securing Shawn Corker out of Fort Lauderdale's Cardinal Gibbons High School just days ago, the news tumbling in today's dryer is that Mike Leach and staff have pirated away wide receiver Kadron Boone.

Particular kudos go out to Tech's receivers coach Lincoln Riley in the poaching efforts.

Boone led Ocala's Trinity Catholic High School to the state 2B championship game last year after scoring fourteen touchdowns in the regular season.

Now, yours truly must admit to being a bit conflicted about all this, as I'm a fan of both the Gators and the Raiders.

But, it will be very exciting to see how Lubbock's evil genius of the gridiron incorporates these two outstanding Florida receivers into Tech's wide open passing style offense.

Talk about some "fun and gun!"
