How Texas Tech QB Davis Webb Proved Kliff Kingsbury Wrong

Ben Kercheval, Bleacher Report

“When I told Davis he wouldn’t be the Game 1 starter, he said, ‘I’m going to show you,’” said Kingsbury. “I have a ton of respect for the way he handled that.”

Every player can say they work hard, but Kingsbury claims Webb is maniacal. The freshman kept striving, and soon, the game slowed down. He cut down on mistakes and made better decisions.

“As a freshman, you’re going to take your lumps, physically and mentally,” said Kingsbury. “But he got better each week.”

Big 12 post-spring breakdown: LBs

6. Texas Tech (7): The Red Raiders received a huge boost in the spring from Kenny Williams, who made a seamless — and voluntary — position switch from running back to the “Raider” linebacker position. With honorable mention All-Big 12 pick Pete Robertson on the other outside spot and veterans Sam Eguavoen and Micah Awe and Utah transfer V.J. Fehoko manning the middle, the Red Raiders have a solid foundation. Ex-Ohio State linebacker Mike Mitchell, who attended Tech’s spring game, could give the unit another boost in the summer. He was an ESPN 300 recruit last year and could be eligible immediately at his next school.

Eric Gutierrez homered twice, including his first career grand slam, and Stephen Smith ripped his first homer of the season as the No. 23 Texas Tech baseball team broke out of its weekend offensive funk with a 18-3 rout of Dallas Baptist on Tuesday at Horner Ballpark.

Pitchers Dylan Dusek and Jonny Drozd combined for eight scoreless innings on the mound, and the Red Raiders ended a season-high three-game losing streak with an emphatic, 16-hit performance and handing DBU its worst loss in more than four years.
