What they're saying at Big 12 Media Days

by Berry Tramel Published: July 23, 2012

“We didn't show up and we didn't compete well. For them to get that Big 12 championship ... it's tough to see and it's something we use as motivation.”

Texas Tech coach Tommy Tuberville on his upset win at OU last year:

“We were lucky. We hit third-down plays and they didn't. That's usually what decides a game.”

KSU linebacker Arthur Brown on being ranked sixth in the preseason Big 12 poll:

“Coach (Bill) Snyder always stresses that the focus should always be within the team. We only have control of it so much, and those are the things we need to be focusing on. The best way that we can predict our future is within our preparation.”

Texas Tech quarterback Seth Doege on a five-game losing streak after winning at OU:

“Personally, I tried to not let it get to me, but your play dictates that. Maybe we were a little high on the high too much. Once we snowballed, we stayed on the low a little too long.”
