Texas Tech Red RaidersCoach Tubberville: Like Desi used to say to Lucy - - - You've got some 'splainin' to do. I can think of several promises that you told us earlier this year:
1. You promised that Sheffield would get significant playing time.
2. You promised that the defense would get better, because after all, that is your expertise.
3. You promised you came here to lead Tech to a championship.
4. You promised that the Tech offense would maintain its character of a pass-heavy offense.
Now, start explaining to us why you have not kept these promises. And there are probably more. Let's take the above 4 points into consideration.....
1. It is now clear to everyone that Potts was "knocked for a loop" during the first half of the OSU game. A perfect time to bring in Sheffield. Why did you "stick" with Potts?
2. I understand that the defensive line is suffering now, so I'm almost ready to give you a pass on this one. However, the Raider nation needs to know if this is going to get any better.
3. Do you think that now is the time to start talking about winning the next game, not about championships?
4. The OSU game was run-heavy - - - the stats show that. What gives? Were you protecting Potts because you knew he was addled? See point number one again!!
Your turn Tommy. We deserve an explanation.
