What Others Are Saying About Texas Tech

“Last season, offensive coordinator Neal Brown inherited two veteran quarterbacks who had started and won games in the Big 12 in Taylor Potts and Steven Sheffield. Brown doesn’t have that luxury this season. Entering the 2011 campaign, the four scholarship quarterbacks on Tech’s roster vying for the starting job- Seth Doege, Jacob Karam, Scotty Young and true freshman Michael Brewer - have attempted a combined 66 career passes.”Athlon Sports

“Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville isnĀ¹t looking for a drawn out quarterback battle. It's better to get things settled quickly. The Red Raiders are moving in that direction early in spring practice. Seth Doege is leading the way in a five-man hunt for the No. 1 position, according to the Dallas Morning News.” The Sporting News

“Is the offense really going to be more balanced? Tommy Tuberville came to Lubbock wanting to run the ball while also keeping elements of the high-octane passing game, but the passing game averaged 319 yards per game while the ground attack only averaged 141. Eric Stephens is the best back of a crowded lot, but other runners are getting a long look early on; the coaches know what Stephens can do. On the way are Kenny Williams, one of the team’s top recruits who could add more pizzazz to the equation. Tuberville really and truly will use more tight end, and yes, it might be that Adam James. It’s not a rumor; there might be more of a commitment to a true, traditional ground game from time to time.” College Football News

“Summer days will start early the next couple of months for Texas Tech football players. Their workout groups go at 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. at the Red Raiders’ Football Training Facility. Tech coach Tommy Tuberville and his assistants can have no role in those workouts, in keeping with NCAA rules, but Joe Walker and his strength and conditioning staff can supervise.” Lubbock Avalanche-Journal
