With players reporting to fall camp today and practice starting tomorrow, both players and coaches met with the media yesterday. I compiled a list of the best tweets from media day.
Mike Mitchell has official changed positions.
David Gibbs and Mike Mitchell both downplayed Mitchell's move from SLB to rush end. Gibbs: "He's going to play rush end, which is rush OLB."— Don Williams (@AJ_DonWilliams) August 4, 2015
Part of the reason for Mitchell's move is incoming freshman D'Vonta Hinton. It will be really impressive if Hinton is able to have an impact this season.
One other reason for Mitchell's move: True fr D'Vonta Hinton is at WLB, an outside spot. Gibbs: "I'll be shocked if he's not in rotation."— Don Williams (@AJ_DonWilliams) August 4, 2015
We have mentioned Awe's name a few times as having a huge impact on the defense's success this season. That's not because we are geniuses.
Consistent word on #TexasTech LBs. DC Gibbs: "Micah Awe's only solidified starter because of way he played and prepared in the spring." ...— Don Williams (@AJ_DonWilliams) August 4, 2015
Here's to hoping this comes true about 20 times this season.

This is the way Red Raiders everywhere feel.

What about the quarterback battle?
Patrick Mahomes said there is still no front runner for the starting quarterback job.— Jeremy Krakosky DT (@JeremyK_DT) August 4, 2015
Kingsbury said he could decide starting QB after first scrimmage but wouldn't commit to that ... As usual he wants 0 turnovers— Nicholas Ryan Talbot (@NicholasRTalbot) August 4, 2015
Jakeem Grant (@_TheDreamIsHere) says he is still the fastest player on the team. Hasn't been beat by Lauderdale, Stockton or Bethel.— Jeremy Krakosky DT (@JeremyK_DT) August 4, 2015
It's like he read my article yesterday.
@dwa5hington "Expect some big plays. RBs play a big role on this team. It'll be an exciting year."— Taylor Langston KCBD (@taylorlangston) August 4, 2015
This would be a huge help to the quarterback.
Reginald Davis says he's ready to have a breakout year. "10 TDs, 1,000 yards" is a possibility. #WreckEm— Ben Peck (@TheBenPeck) August 4, 2015
Love Webb's quote.
@Davis_Webb7 "People tell me how good I can be... It's time to do it. Enough talk about it, I've got to go do it."— Taylor Langston KCBD (@taylorlangston) August 4, 2015
