Texas Tech could be in good shape on Saturday against UTEP — well, if they can figure out this whole tackling thing, that is
The Texas Tech Red Raiders are taking on UTEP Saturday afternoon as they look to move to 2-0 on the season here in 2015. Of course, if they want to get that record to 2-0 on the year, they’ll have to make sure that their tackling on defense is on point. Early in this one, they are very much not doing that.
As we all know, with Kliff Kingsbury running the show down there in Lubbock, this team is mainly known for their high power on offense. Very rarely when you hear about Texas Tech do you ever think about defense, and a play in the first half of this one reminded us all why that is the case.
UTEP’s Aaron Jones would find the end zone in the first quarter, although all things considered, he really should not have. Watch the downright poor tackling attempts here as he danced his way to the six points.
Yeah, that is — well, that’s just not very good right there at all. Less dancing at practices, Kliff, and more of these guys actually hitting someone.
