They do what there?

Austin American-Statesman - - SPORTS -

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.”
