Anybody out there really believe Tommy Tuberville when he said at the time of his hire at Texas Tech that he was going to leave the Mike Leach offense in place? Anybody? Bueller?
“We’ll put a lot of speed on the field,” as well as a more aggressive defense, adding the team’s quarterbacks met with him soon after his arrival and asked Tech to run the ball a bit more to help protect them. “We’re going to be a little more balanced on offense.”
Yeah, that’s it – the quarterbacks made him do it. Because if there’s one thing that’s totally logical in this crazy world, it’s that quarterbacks recruited to a program with a pass-happy offense are going to go to the coach and ask that he not throw the ball so much.
