Forward Steps

The time is now for players to seize starting positions for the opener. Here, cornerbacks coach Brian Mitchell and receivers coach Lonnie Galloway delve into the merits of better quality numbers and what they would like to see over the next several weeks.

Mitchell, in his typical eloquent style, discusses how players having a "working knowledge" of the Big 12, how it takes at least four cornerbacks to compete in the conference, and the increased level of trust between teammates and coaches.

Galloway speaks to the "cleaning up" of some wideout play, the ongoing competition, taking continual steps forward as opposed to some regression and his comfort level with additional second team numbers.
