On this edition of Inside Texas Tech we meet new Rodeo Coach Philip Berry who landed his dream job by coming to Tech and hopes to continue to build on the team's past success. Also we take an inside glimpse at how wind research at Tech can change the way structures handle damage in extreme weather, and we go inside Chancellor Kent Hance's Leadership Class where he sits down with Tech Graduate and Well Point CEO Angela Braly. All that and more.
