I've seen a lot of people predicting a win over Texas Tech next year, and while nothing is impossible, that looks like a really bad match-up for us. Tech returns all three of their QBs, all three of their RBs that had more than one carry this year, and 13 of their 14 players who caught passes this year (or 12 of 14 if James transfers). On defense they return nine of their top 15 tacklers, although they do lose their top four sack leaders. All in all they return eight starters on offense and six on defense, plus their punter and kicker. If Sheffield stays healthy the whole year and they hire a competent coach, Tech is a dark horse Big 12 title contender. In Sheffield's two starts this year he threw for seven TDs against K-State and led Tech's offense to 24 points against Nebraska's defense before getting hurt. He came off the bench in the Alamo Bowl and looked fantastic. It has to suck for Tech fans that Leach was fired because he might have had his best team ever at Tech next year. I hope we beat them, but it will be REALLY tough.
