Good morning! Tex, on a post-NBA Draft high, sat down early this morning to round up the week's events - Grant to the Knicks, a rapper fights a ripped dude, Holtz's house, and the always entertaining/depressing "College Football: Law & Order" segment. Most importantly, Tex updates us on the progress of Elli Thatcher, who we profiled back in April.
