Red Raider Sports’ Jarrett Ramirez recapped some of the players available yesterday, Myles Price, Jordan Brown, Bryce Ramirez, and Dadrion Taylor-Demerson. Here’s a bit from Price:

“They got one guy they like,” Taylor-Demerson said, in reference to Oregon receiver Troy Franklin. “Stop him, stop the run. They got a good little running back, he’s a little shifty dude. I like him, I like the way he plays and it is fun watching him. They got some pretty solid speedsters on offense but we got the same stuff here at Tech… I wouldn’t say there’s more on shoulders (with Rodriguez out). I know I put a lot on my shoulders anyways. I feel like I control the defense with him and with him not being on the field. We got guys stepping up and that’s what it’s all about, guys coming in. A lot of guys have been waiting for that shot to play so they’re gonna get it. What better opportunity than in The Jones against Oregon.”

Of course the head coach Joey McGuire, defensive coordinator Tim DeRuyter, and offensive coordinator Zach Kittley all spoke on Tuesday. Red Raider Sports’ Justin Apodaca recapped the coordinators:

“I gotta be more aggressive of a play caller,” Kittley said. “At the end of the day that this comes back to me. We got to be a lot better on offense to win that game last Saturday. I got to be more aggressive this week and then take some shots downfield and try to hit our spots in the run game.”

New lights.

The volley ball team has dropped two in a row, to North Texas and to Abilene Christian. They’ll head to Dallas at SMU for a weekend tournament, but I am a bit concerned that this season may not turn out the way they want.
