Texas Tech Football:
LAJ's Don Williams focuses on yesterday's scrimmage and says that the defense stole the show. Williams notes that the defense held it's own against the offense, and included 4 interceptions and 2 fumbles, here's senior safety Darcel McBath:
You've got to love this from Leach:
Isn't that a huge step for the defense? Those mental lapses where the defense just can't hang physically and it leads to big gains and the defense being on it's heels. Now, it seems like the defense has both the depth and talent to make sure that doesn't happen.
Here's senior defensive end Daniel Howard:
And senior safety Daniel Charbonnet:
Who's football-pants are going crazy right now?
In Williams' Red Raiders Football Notebook, he has a wealth of wonderful notes. Everything from Leach demanding better from the second team offensive line . . .
. . . to some praise for Adam James, who is starting to make some plays . . .
. . . to Daniel Howard playing the Joker position . . .
"That's fun," Howard said. "That's a d-lineman's dream, getting to go back there and come rush with a running start at somebody. That's just part of the coaches putting in packages that apply to the personnel that we have, taking advantage of it."
. . . to Leach on Ed Britton's arrest . . .
. . . to reserve linebacker Julius Howard, who is making plays all over the field . . .
"I've been playing about even," Howard said. "I'll start out on weak side, then ease my way into strong side, because I know how to play both real good. So he trusts me playing both of them."
. . . and additional scrimmage notes, which included quarterback Tyler Potts being intercepted 3 times yesterday.
LAJ's Red Raiders Football Fifth Down talks with Player Personnel Director, Antonio Huffman, along with some other practice notes.
