Mickey Peters was one of the first big names in the Air Raid Era for Texas Tech and then-head coach Mike Leach.

Peters broke out as a sophomore in 2001 with Kliff Kingsbury throwing the rock his way more and more as the season progressed. He'd finish his second year at Texas Tech with more than 500 yards and two touchdowns. His next season was a true breakout for Mickey Peters, when he racked up 750 yards and eight touchdowns.

His chemistry with BJ Symons was even better. Peters' senior season was his best. He had nearly 80 catches for 975 yards and 12 touchdowns.

In episode six of The Gamblin' Gauchos podcast, you can catch up with Peters as he and the guys talk about the weekend's games in the Big 12 and beyond.

The Gauchos, Rob Breaux and Kyle Jacobson, also talk conference realignment, potential division demarcation for the new Big 12, and how Texas Tech should focus on throwing their weight around in the brand new conference.

This is something that Kirby Hocutt and Texas Tech President Dr. Lawrence Schovanec have already been doing by leading the Big 12 in expansion. Hocutt was visible and on the forefront of the expansion deals with Houston, Cincinnati, UCF, and BYU. Schovanec also made himself a part of the proceedings by being at the introductory press conferences with Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby and the leadership of the new member schools.

We also covered that thought in the pod that Texas Tech should position themselves at the top of this new-look conference.
