Talking about this this morning in the San Antonio Paper. Sticks doesnt hold anything back. Here are some good quotes. They jab right at NB and Fluberville.
"I thought it was real interesting growing up seeing the Major Applewhite/Chris Simms quarterback debate, and we kind of had the same thing in Lubbock,” Sheffield said this week. “You had the big guy like Taylor and the underdog like Major Applewhite; I was kind of like that."
“It kind of blew my mind how (offensive coordinator) Neal Brown thought the only way to win was to start one quarterback,” Sheffield said. “You have two seniors that have been there for five years. Why can’t they both play?
" A lot of times I got frustrated because I felt because I wasn't necessarily the "yes man" and was more outspoken than Taylor, who is very quiet, that it was costing me snaps and playing time."
“Even though it’s a close race, (Tuberville) tells the media it’s a close race and everyone knows it’s a close race, you have one guy play 90 percent of the snaps and one guy sit back and his senior season goes to waste."
“You would think, ‘Hey, I have two good quarterbacks; let’s try to use both of them. There’s things Potts is better at than Sticks (Sheffield). There’s things Sticks is better at than Potts.’ They’re on the same team. Why not use them both?”
" I kind of feel that they (NB and Tubs) had kind of made their mind up even before there was decision time. I think they liked Taylor better for whatever reason and also he was bigger and had a stronger arm. He had a larger margin for error than I did."
About Potts: “We’re a lot different people, first off,” Sheffield said. “He’s a different guy than I am. He’s a really good guy. I know he’s got a good heart. I think we did a good job battling it out as many times as we had to. He got injured a few times. I got injured a few times. We still stuck it out and ended the season (8-5 in 2010). It wasn’t an unsuccessful season by any means.”
