Kliff Kingsbury's not breathing down Kirby Hocutt's neck to build his team an indoor practice facility. The Texas Tech football coach makes it sound as if he cares little whether one ever gets constructed.

True freshman Baylen Brown is likely to get his second start in a row at right guard when Texas Tech faces Texas on Thursday. That's partly attributable to Brown's level of play and partly tied to other circumstances.

Tech linebacker dismissed for violation of team rules

Inside linebacker Blake Dees has been dismissed from the team, Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury said Monday, for a violation of team rules.

“He is not on the team,” Kingsbury said. “Moving forward, it’s something we’ll have to evaluate with him.”

Dees, a junior from Spanish Fort, Ala., had 11 tackles with two tackles for loss. He had not played in the last three games. Before that, he was a backup inside linebacker.

 

Jakeem Grant would love to feel the feeling just one more time. The one he gets when he fields a kickoff, splits a seam and goes the distance.

Luckily for Tech, the Red Raiders have been able to keep sacks reasonably low this season.

Tech to start two true freshmen DBs against Texas

Texas Tech will start two true freshmen in the secondary Thursday against Texas. February signee Justis Nelson will get his second start in a row at field (wide-side) cornerback, defensive coordinator Matt Wallerstedt said Monday, and walk-on Tanner Jacobson from Southlake Carroll will make his third start at strong safety.

Both positions have been a revolving door lately. Olaoluwa Falemi started the first eight games at field corner. Derrick Mays made two starts, and then Nelson started and played 90 snaps in Tech’s last game against Baylor.
