Big 12 Football Notebook – August 6, 2012: Baylor Talks Defense, Tech Releases Reporting Roster
Texas Tech Football released its reporting roster Sunday night in advance of the first practice of the 2012 season starting today. One of the notable names left off the roster was kick returner Ben McRoy.
RedRaiders.com reported last week that it was doubtful for McRoy to return to the team due to eligibility issues and Head Coach Tommy Tuberville said,
“He might not be around. If he doesn’t make his grades, he’s not eligible.”
Baylor Football play by play announcer John Morris caught up with Bears Defensive Coordinator Phil Bennett. Baylor’s defense was almost as bad as Tech’s but when you have Robert Griffin you won’t need much defense.
TCU Head Coach Gary Patterson said on Sunday that starting quarterback Casey Pachall will not face team discipline for failing a drug test in February.
Pachall gave a statement to reporters at the start of a press conference and apologized for his actions as Horned Frog players were scheduled to report Sunday for the start of fall practice.

The Longhorns reported to training camp Sunday with Ash and McCoy preparing to battle for control of the offense after a rocky 2011 in which both started several games in an 8-5 season.
