Notebook: Resting Robertson. LAJ’s Don Williams has a notebook where he talked with rush end Pete Robertson about how he does need a rest and what Zach Barnes and Mike Mitchell bring to the position:

“Zach made just so much progress from last season,” Robertson said. “His effort. His ability to rush the passer. (I’m) sometimes starting to think he’s a better pass rusher than I am. I’ll be getting kind of spooked, so I’ve got to keep going 24-7.

“And even Mike Mitchell, the guy is so strong it doesn’t matter who’s on him, he’s going to legitimately sit that tackle on top of the quarterback.”

  • Williams notes that head coach Kliff Kingsbury didn’t speak to the media yesterday and no quarterback was named. This storyline, naming a quarterback now or soon or whenever, doesn’t bother me.
  • J.J. Gaines talked about his role and he ran out with the first team yesterday with Justis Nelson, noting that defensive coordinator David Gibbs wants to protect his shoulder.

Beautiful Preview. The Dallas Morning News has previews of all Texas teams, including a preview of Texas Tech. It’s a terrific looking preview and I think it is a culminationof everything that Tommy Magelssen and Michael DuPont have worked on all summer. Go check it out.

Offensive Line Preview.

Miscellaneous. Land Grant Gauntlet plays out week five . . . Deadspin’s Diana Moskovitz recaps testimony from the victim in Baylor’s Sam Ukwuachu’s sexual assault trial . . . LAJ’s Don Williams continues his all-time Texas Tech team with a look at returner, and as you might expect Wes Welker is first, then Tyrone Thurman and Dane Johnson was third . . .
