Coach V’s Grades – Texas Tech

Want daily Texas Longhorns content on the latest team and recruiting information from Eric Nahlin, Justin Wells, Ian Boyd, Scipio Tex, and Joe Cook? Sign up HERE today!

We can play the hell out of batting practice. Once we figured out Tech was minus their E. J. Holub (Brooks-#1) war-hog we boxed their ears for close to half a hundred. It’s fun when everyday is a holiday and every meal is a banquet.

Watching Roschon Johnson play the game is worth the price of admission. He may stumble, miss the hole, or lose style points but you can bet your lunch money he is the best “team” player when it comes to maximum effort regardless of assignment. Just watch RJ block the pass rush or lead on the QB draw and you will become a real fan. Considering he’s just a few months away from the high school prom dance and playing a brand new position that ain’t bad.

Here are the grades:

1—Burt—pass

2—Johnson—pass+

6—Duvernay—pass+

8—Thompson—pass

11—Ehlinger—pass+

13—Eagles—pass

15—Washington—pass

16—Smith—pass+

18—Wiley—pass

26—Ingram—pass

32—Young—pass

52—Cosmi—pass

56—Shackelford—pass

68—Kerstetter—pass

73—Braun—pass

75—Angilau—pass

85—Epps—pass

Bowl game, you’re up sport.


We spotted those guys 14 points while we settled into our comfort zone. It helped when they often forgot we weren’t honoring the containment option along the way. We threw in the watch the catch and then tackle technique we are so famous for. We held them under their yards gained and points scored so there is that. I love watching our athletes give it all they have. I hate watching the way they have been taught to play. Change can’t come soon enough for some of us old whistle blowers.

Ojomo is going to be a stud hoss in the Longhorn tradition of dominant DL’s. Bimage keeps climbing that ladder. Overshown has the zeal to play this game. This side of the ball ain’t playing barefoot but they are playing against the wind in the wrong direction. Crying ass shame is what it is.

Here are the grades:

5—Jamison—pass

7—Sterns—pass

11—Adimora—pass
