For the 14th-consecutive year Texas Tech has won their season opener, they beat Stephen F. Austin 69-17. But, Kliff still wasn’t happy about his team’s performance on Monday.
“After watching the film, we weren’t mechanical and we weren’t very fundamentally sound. What I have seen in practice really didn’t carry over to the field, maybe it was nerves and first game jitters. It wasn’t us and we need to get that fixed this week and next Saturday we need to play a smoother and much more poised game,” said Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury.
Up next a much stronger opponent, Arizona State. Kliff says his team will have to take it to the next level, to beat the Sun Devils.
“I thought defensively, not offensively. We have some good play makers that can make stuff happen in open space. We have Pat, so we covered a lot of things by playing some street ball. But we have to get a lot better and tighten things up and be a lot more physical this week,” Kingsbury said.
After saying all of that, Kliff still feels confident in his team.
“We're ready. I think it's been good competition against each other all camp. I had made mention of that during camp and so I think that has prepped us to go against a solid Division I team,” Kliff Kingsbury said.
