There are few things worse than the college football off-season. Even local sports talk shows are resorting to random discussions about the lottery.

But the outlook got a little brighter yesterday with the return of spring practice over at the Texas Tech football training facility.

Coaches and players reported for day one of position battles, depth-building and…haircuts?

Hard hitting news there. But in all seriousness, Webb seems to be taking his knew role as THE guy in Tech’s offense to heart. He’s put on weight, smartened his look up for the cameras, and Kingsbury has nothing but praise for the sophomore signal caller.

 

You can also hear Webb talk with Double T 104.3′s Morning Drive show about his progress and approach to being the full-time starter. Sounds like a very smart kid who knows how to give a good interview.

In other news, Tech has officially retained the services of defensive coordinator Matt Wallerstedt for a second year.

That’s the first time in six years that a D-coordinator has coached two consecutive first-days of spring practice. Not only does it feel nice to talk about, but it should pay dividends when the defense takes the field this fall.
