Kliff Kingsbury: He may have country charm, but Baylor’s Art Briles ‘will cut anybody’s throat’ to win football game

Tommy Magelssen, Dallas Morning News

On Art Briles’ coaching style and what he learned from the Baylor head coach:

Kingsbury: “I’ve always had the utmost respect for coach Briles and really modeled the way I treat players and the way I coach after his style. He had a way of making you feel like you were 10-feet tall and bulletproof every time you stepped out onto the practice field and the game field and made you enjoy the game. He made sure you enjoyed the moment, and it doesn’t surprise me at all what he’s done there at Baylor and taking them to where they were to the top of the league. I think he tries to play the old, country, sly-like-a-fox-type role, but he’s the most competitive person you’ll ever be around. And so he puts on that smile and that country charm, but that man will cut anybody’s throat to win a football game, I can promise you.”

What you missed in Big 12 spring football

David Ubben, Fox Sports Southwest

Reginald Davis, WR, Texas Tech: There wasn’t much room in the rotation for Davis last season, who caught just 15 balls for 200 yards. Everybody knows about Jakeem Grant, but keep an eye on this 6-foot, 190-pound sophomore to make an impact this year. He’s got great speed and with no Eric Ward or Jace Amaro for Davis Webb to throw to, there will be a lot of passes that somebody’s got to catch. Davis has great ability to make plays with the ball in his hands and stretch the field. That means touches in Texas Tech’s offense.

Spring brings QB clarity to Big 12

Jake Trotter,

Webb has been especially impressive since earning MVP honors in the Red Raiders’ National University Holiday Bowl victory over Arizona State. In Texas Tech’s three spring open scrimmages, he tossed 13 touchdowns with no interceptions.

“He is night and day from what he was at this time last year,” Red Raiders coach Kliff Kingsbury said. “I am really impressed with him.”
