What Texas Tech football coach Matt Wells has to say about Baylor
Baylor’s lead on offense, Charlie Brewer, dynamic dual-threat quarterback, really good with his feet. He is very accurate, stellar high school career out of Lake Travis. I think they got three legit wideouts. (Denzel) Mims outside, he’s a man, he’s a man. You see him high-point the ball, big strong hands, comes down with catches. Three running backs, (JaMycal Hasty), (John Lovett) and (Tresten Ebner) can all play. They’re all dynamic.
It’s interesting to see how they’re being built from the way coach (Matt) Rhule is building that. Maybe even a little Big 10-ish. And when I say that, it’s out of Matt’s past from the Big 10 when he played. When you see a 6-6, 300-pound tight end, both tackles are 6-6, 6-7, the center’s 6-6. They’re large humans. I mean, really, really big, and they’ve got girth. They’ve beefed up the O-line and D-line since they’ve been there. Truly respect that because I think that’s where you win ball games, in the trenches.
On the flip side, on defense, they’re senior oriented. That’s probably whey they’re really, really good right now. I think that’s a big part of the reason why they’re 5-0. They’ve got a plan, they’ve got a coordinator that’s a veteran and they’ve stuck by their plan. Eight seniors, three senior DBs, the three senior linebackers and a couple d-linemen. 99 is a load inside, again, girth, huge chest cavity, I mean the guy’s big. He’s a load inside. The linebackers, one young man’s from East Texas, one’s from West Texas, they play the game the way they’re supposed to be played.
