Lots of devastation and mourning over here for many folks after the Cowboys’ 44-6 loss at Philadelphia. I really wasn’t bothered too much by that one. I still haven’t gotten over the Tom Landry thing in 1989.
Much of the talk around the afternoon presser was about the matchup of Texas Tech’s offensive line, which has allowed only 11 sacks over 604 pass attempts, against the Ole Miss defensive line, which leads the nation in tackles for loss.
Tech OL coach Matt Moore compares the Rebels’ front to Oklahoma and Texas, though he says Ole Miss has more depth than Texas. I’m not sure it’s a compliment to be compared to a Big 12 defense.
The Red Raiders’ OL is known for its wide splits in the fastbreak offense. Peria Jerry believes Tech will narrow those splits when “they see how quick some of the guys are.” Jerry is one of those guys.
Tomorrow’s presser has the Ole Miss offense and the Tech defense. The Rebels will be represented by fullback Jason Cook, who will play very little in the game if at all, QB Jevan Snead, WR Mike Wallace, OL Michael Oher and RB Dexter McCluster, along with coordinator Kent Austin.
