I couldn't help but read this story from the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal and not have some fun with it. While it's a philosophy that is in play just about everywhere, the phrasing begged for mocking.
“Hunt together, kill together” is the new motto of the Texas Tech defense.Happy hunting, fellas.
That’s the phrase the defense used to break from huddles Sunday, and cornerback Jarvis Phillips summed up its meaning for the media following practice.
“Hunt together, you know, just get to the ball,” Phillips said, “and kill together, I guess try to hurt ’em.”
The maxim’s origin can be traced to new defensive coordinator Chad Glasgow, who stresses accountability from his defense.
“One of the things we’re going to talk about all the time is hunting together as a unit,” Glasgow said. “We’ve got to have 11 guys that are running to the football as fast as they can and we’ve got to play smart as a defensive unit.”
