“We’ve just got to stick together,” senior cornerback Jeff Gladney said. “There’s four or five plays a game that we have to make. We just have to make our plays, and we’ll win our games.”
What Texas Tech football coach Matt Wells has to say about TCU | Abilene Reporter
First year head coach Matt Wells has known Gary Patterson for a long time, and respects TCU a lot.
This is a program that I got a chance to coach against when I was in the Mountain West, but I’ve known Gary Patterson for a long time, since I was 18 years old. Coached me in college, and really the last six years as I’ve been a head coach he’s done a lot for me just in terms of helping me as a young head coach. He hadn’t talked to me I don’t think in 10 months, but before that I’ve known him for a long time. Great guy, one of the best coaches in the country, longest tenured — one of the longest tenured, and he knows I’ve got a tremendous amount of respect for him. And when I see his teams, they’re tough-nosed, they’re tough, hard-nosed.
