Here are just a few things in Chad’s Pile that you will hear on Lubbock’s First News this morning. Give Chad your feedback on the steaming topics.

1. Football

Well, at least the Dallas Cowboys won. Texas Tech stunk it up again, this time in Austin. Tech was routed by the Longhorns 52-20 and never looked like the team we saw in Norman. Texas Tech will face the number 2 ranked team in the nation, the Oklahoma State Cowboys, this Saturday at Jones Stadium. Kick-off is 11am and that just shows you how much interest there is in this game. I know Tech wants to sell-out the game, but I just don't see that happening. Not even close. In fact, Tech will be lucky if they have 45k there on Saturday.

2. NASA to the Moon? (link)

NASA is already thinking about tourism on the Moon. Sounds cool right? Of course, they are worried about one thing.

"Looting, that would be pretty bad," says archaeologist Beth O'Leary of New Mexico State University in Las Cruces. Looting is the bane of archaeological sites and O'Leary has spearheaded efforts to declare moon landing sites as historic preserves or national parks, seeking to head off similar depredations before before tourists leave Earth for the moon. "I put landing people on the moon up there with creating fire as a technological achievement."

Gotta admit, I'd probably want to take a piece of the moon home.

3. Smart women, dumb guys (link)

Here is another study about women in relationships.

Relationships between men and women are changing radically as high-flying females find it increasingly difficult to marry successful men, a new study has found.

Research has revealed women's success in education and the workplace mean they are having to 'trade down' when it comes to finding a partner.

Historically, sociologists say women have looked for partners who were richer and better educated than themselves.

These and many more topics coming up on Monday’s edition of Lubbock’s First News with Chad Hasty. Tune in mornings 6-9am on News/Talk 790 KFYO, streaming online at, and now on your iPhone and Android device with the radioPup App.
