In a totally expected development, Texas Tech’s offense last year declined from its Leach-era levels of excellence to the merely mediocre.
… The Red Raiders not only declined in raw statistics, but also in their rank within the conference. This decline was also across the board. After ranking either first or second in completion percentage in the conference in each of Leach’s last four seasons, the Red Raiders fell to fifth in 2010. An even further descent occurred in yards per pass, where the Red Raiders fell to ninth and passer rating where they fell to eighth. Not only did the Red Raiders decline in every significant passing category, but outside of completion percentage, they were below average throwing the football!
If the past is any indication, it’s the quarterbacks’ fault.
