DTN is officially very tired. Ten hours of sleep for two nights in a row makes for a very unproductive Seth C and makes me realize that I'm not as young as I think I am. I'll look to recover tomorrow morning with some actual content and not just news.
Texas Tech Football:
LAJ's Don Williams writes about freshman quarterback Stefan Loucks this morning. I've watched Louck's YouTube video and, as did Coach Leach, come away impressed with his ability to get the ball to the open receiver, whether it be over the middle or dropping a pass in between two defenders. Here's Coach Leach on his freshman quarterback:
Loucks, more than any other quarterback, may have had more time with this spread offense than any Texas Tech quarterback and it will be interesting to see his development.
DMN's Brandon George has a wonderful article on junior quarterback Graham Harrell. I don't have the time right now to get into all of it, maybe later today, but this opening quote stood out for me:
Don's Red Raider Football Notebook notes that Adrian Reese is having a tough time catching anything right now. The best part about Williams asking Coach Leach about Reese's struggles was this quote:
How very zen of Coach Leach. What an interesting way to describe how a player can't catch a football and having an understanding of what a player might be going through.
Williams also writes that there's quite a weight difference between freshmen running backs Jared Flannel and Aaron Crawford. Crawford weighs in at 200 plus while Crawford is at 171. Just thinking out loud, I wonder if Leach is going to also recruit smaller and/or skinnier running backs in the hopes of turning them into standout wide receivers? Flannel fits the same mold of Ed Britton in that there's maybe too much depth at running back, but there's certainly a place for a kid who can run 4.5 40 yard dash.
