We are in day five of Texas Tech football fall camp.

The excitement of football season just keeps building, as we inch closer and closer to the opening game against Stephen F. Austin.

Defensive Coordinator David Gibbs is back for a second season, his second year as defensive coordinator, but his first year at the helm wasn't what he had planned.

The defense gave up on average 547 yards per game, and was ranked 125th nationally in points allowed per game.

So heading into year two, Coach Gibbs says he is feeling the pressure to get the defense turned around.

"I do, I feel like anyone with any kind of competitive spirit would feel pressure. I think it makes you a better coach, and a better teacher. I think anyone out there that is worried about their job, and maybe you are too. If you do a better job, you can go to work and keep competing. So its hard out there, we play in a great conference with a bunch of great players. But, our jobs is to stop people.  I feel like we are going in the right direction, I truly believe we are. So we will work our butts off this training camp and see where we go," Gibbs said.
