Pete Robertson said Wednesday he’s adjusting well to his move from free safety to strong safety.
The true freshman was moved following Saturday’s intrasquad scrimmage, defensive coordinator Chad Glasgow said Monday. Robertson supplanted senior Jared Flannel as the backup to sophomore Terrance Bullitt.
Junior transfer Leon Mackey spoke humbly Tuesday about being named Texas Tech’s opening day starter at right-side defensive end.
The 6-foot-5, 256-pound Mackey beat out redshirt freshman Jackson Richards for the job.
Freshman tight end Jace Amaro saw limited action Saturday against Texas State, and offensive coordinator Neal Brown wants to change that.
Brown said Monday he’d like to see Amaro get more playing time.
“Didn’t get to play Amaro as much as I wanted to this game,” Brown said. “We’re working on some things this week to get him some more.”
Amaro was thrown to once Saturday, but the pass was a bit behind him and he couldn't come up with the catch.
Texas Tech coaches decided not to redshirt junior split end Marcus Kennard in order to preserve another deep threat.
Offensive coordinator Neal Brown said Monday that Darrin Moore – who he called Tech’s best weapon – won’t be double teamed as much if Kennard or Tramain Swindall can make an impact on the other side of the field
Texas Tech football coach Tommy Tuberville said Tuesday that defensive end Leon Mackey’s injury could keep him out for the season.
The junior transfer suffered a deflated lung after being hit in the chest during Saturday’s game against Texas State.
Tuberville said Monday that Mackey would likely miss several weeks. On Tuesday he said “it could be for the season.”
Maryland debuted its new uniforms during its opener Monday night against Miami.
The uniforms caused a flurry of discussion on Twitter, with reactions ranging largely from shock to disgust.
The shirts were white with a red and white pattern on one shoulder pad and black and yellow on the other. The helmet followed the same pattern.
The color schemes and patterns were in the design of the Maryland state flag.
The uniforms were made by Under Armour, which also provides Texas Tech’s apparel.
The Texas Tech men's basketball team will play its Feb. 4 game against Texas on the new Longhorn Network.
The game is one of 12 Texas men's basketball games that will air on the network, according to a release from ESPN.
Since the game was passed over by ESPN and FSN, it became classified as "third-tier," meaning it's up for grabs and can be televised by the host conference member.
