Question: It's obvious that as a team you don't like what Texas Tech did to you last year but being from Texas, what does it mean to you personally?

Dwight Counter: "It is a big game and what they did to us last year was embarrassing. With it being on national television, it was the one of the only games my family and friends got to see me play and that was the memory they had."

Q: So you want to erase that memory?

DC: "Yeah, I am going to have a lot of people at that game. I still have a bad taste in my mouth from last year and I don't want to end my career against them 0-4."

Q: What does it take to be a good punt returner?

DC: "I think it takes a lot of guts. You know that you are going to get the ball and that you are going to take some good shots. I feel like it's my duty to stand back there and take the shots in order to help my team."
