They do what there?
Steven Sheffield might be a quarterback, but he’s felt for how the defense has been treated at Texas Tech in recent years.
“They were the red-headed stepchild,” Sheffield said. “The head coach ( Mike Leach) was all about offense. That was his thing. He didn’t pay much attention to the defense.”
Still, defensive lineman Colby Whitlock said it wasn’t as bad as people make it out to be.
“It really got better over the past three years, as we got better,” Whitlock said. “We weren’t a very good defense a while back. But we’ve gotten better. We have some defensive-minded coaches now, so you know we’re going to come out to play.”
